The management of others can be a daunting task even for the seasoned professional. Many times librarians find themselves thrust into management with little to no preparation or training. These individuals must think on their feet and learn on the job in order to be successful. A manager is not only in charge of making sure that a department or library is operating at peak capacity and efficiency, but must also effectively communicate and inspire and motivate an ever diversifying set of employees with varied life histories and life circumstances. This presentation will discuss strategies that can be implemented by novice or seasoned managers to effectively motivate and manage employees. The presenter will discuss some of the varied experiences he has faced in management; both in and out of the library setting, and with employees ranging from students to faculty. Attendees will be encouraged to share their experiences and discuss the topics, research, and strategies presented during the session. Topics: diversity, management, mentoring, supervision of employees, millennials, work life balance, communication, motivation, student workers
