WLA’s Leadership Development Institute (LDI) is an immersive and interactive learning experience focusing on five core leadership competencies: Change Management, Emotional Intelligence, Critical Decision Making, Collaboration and Relationship Building; advancing the Vision and Mission of WLA by developing strong, confident leaders. Using instructional design tools such as the Gallup StrengthsFinder Assessment and the Cohort Group Model, the program maximizes the potential of the library profession by enhancing their knowledge of these competencies for use in their own organizations and in the individual communities in which they serve.
The Leadership Development Institute is designed for those who must think strategically about emerging institutional and informational needs, changing expectations of library leaders, new technologies and long-range plans for their library. The curriculum will deepen your insights, expand your professional network and broaden your approach to leadership.
WLA’s third annual Leadership Development Institute will take place at the distinguished Central Branch of the Madison Public Library.
