ACRL announces the publication of Influencing without Authority, second in the ACRL Active Guide Series.
Written by Melanie Hawks, frequent consultant and trainer on leadership and influence, Influencing Without Authority provides guidance to those seeking to gain support for their ideas, developing collaborative relationships and becoming recognized leaders regardless of their positions or titles.
Working effectively in the library profession means finding ways to reach and lead those who are not required to listen or follow. The ability to influence others is a required workplace skill and yet it is one in which very few people receive education. Influencing Without Authority is designed to help individuals develop the skills they need to influence peers, library administrators, college and university faculty, students and external stakeholders.
ACRL Active Guides is an occasional series devoted to providing practical guidance on workplace issues.
Influencing Without Authority is available for purchase through the ALA Online Store and by telephone order at (866) 746-7252 in the U.S. or (770) 442-8633 for international customers
