How Everyday Innovation Fuels Success (webinar)

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
ONLINE COURSES

Competency: Library Management

Sub-Category: Organizational Leadership

Innovation is daunting for most organizations. The elusive search for the ONE BIG IDEA to drive growth and increase relevancy puts library organizations on a never-ending journey to predict the future. Yet, the answer lies not in having one big idea.

 

In this interactive and informative webinar, John Moore dispels this belief by explaining how being visionary is not predicting the future, but rather, creating the future by reacting to the present. 


Drawing from his marketing experience at Starbucks Coffee and Whole Foods Market, John will demonstrate how a steady stream of small, everyday ideas result in lasting success for businesses, causes and organizations.

And because of the rules, policies and procedures we have put into place, we assume that we will be safe. We even tell ourselves “Nothing serious has ever occurred in or around the area of our place of employment.”

 

Yet, we hear of an incident occurring in the most unexpected places, including public and academic libraries. Places that we at one time, we believed that our loves ones would be safe. In this interactive and informative webinar, we will look at how the basic knowledge of our facilities can give us an upper hand before and if an incident were to occur.

Holistic Digital Strategies for Libraries (webinar)

ONLINE COURSES

Competency: Community Relations

Sub-Category: Political Advocacy

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that big data, digital contact, and strong web platforms were some of the key tactics to winning the last three presidential elections. In fact, by using more modern community organizing platforms to understand our users and supporters coupled with a holistic strategy that creates paths for support, libraries can build effective audiences, reach non-users, and solicit for more donations and volunteers.

 

In this interactive and informative program, we will debut some of the overall digital theory, best big data practices, and most effective digital tactics that are used by major cause related campaigns. We will also discuss many of the ways that even small and underfunded libraries can harness this power for themselves by understanding the underlying theory.
