Lessons in Library Leadership
OELMA Leadership Thoughts by Angela
Article: How to Become a Conscious Leader
Please read the short article (linked below) from Jim Dethmer, co-author of the book 15 Commitments of Conscious Leadership: A Paradigm for Sustainable Success. In this article, he writes about three foundational moves leaders must make to be a conscious leader. I think this applies to OELMA in many ways...especially our Board and the projects we are working on with the EduConferences and committees.
After reading, think about the following questions: what are your strengths in leadership? Weaknesses? How can you move to more conscious leadership in your conversations and daily routines in your libraries?
