At the 2011 American Libraries Association Annual Conference, the Association of College & Research Libraries President’s Program is “From Idea to Innovation to Implementation: How Teams Make it Happen.”
We all value great ideas. Unfortunately, few ideas get beyond the lightning-bolt thought or some scribbled words. The greatest innovations across time, according to new research, emerge from teams characterized by diverse skill sets not the lone creative genius. To move our libraries into the future, we must create and sustain teams that transition great ideas to implementation.
Jason Young, President of LeadSmart and author of the book Culturetopia, will share his perspectives on the importance of identifying and developing the essential factors that impact performance for any team or organization: leadership principles, management practices, alignment and employee behavior.
Please join me for Jason Young’s presentation on Saturday, June 25 from 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at the Morial Convention Center, Room 356-357.
Lisa Hinchliffe, ACRL President 2010-2011
