On site training – coming up!

The Montana State Library revised its model for delivering quality face-to-face seminar-style training from a single annual 2 day conference to several smaller events sprinkled around the Treasure State.  This new model for training, called MSL Workshops, is intended to reach out to new audiences and to put quality training closer to many of our far-flung small rural libraries.  The Montana Library Association sponsors several larger format training events held in the bigger towns in Montana, so your state library is trying to differentiate our training from MLA, so that Montana’s librarians can have a wide variety of training opportunities.   (BTW – I’m presenting a session on disaster preparedness on March 31st at MLA in Billings – please come – I have cool prizes and some very useful handouts, and a sample first aid kit that every library should have. Several librarians are bringing their disaster response plans to share – it will be inspiring.  And, what an important topic!)

MSL Workshops provide seminar-style 1/2day or all day training sessions. There is no charge to attend.  And while there is some similar content offered at different locations, each MSL Workshop is a unique program, so you may attend more than one, if you like.  Every MSL Workshop features an evening session targeted to public library boards and we aim for training that board members will find practical and valuable.

I hope we will see you at an MSL Workshop later this Spring:

Havre – April 26th-27th or

Red Lodge & Joliet, May 8th.

Register to attend by logging on to the MT State Library Directory.

And…coming this summer: the 2017-18 Summer Library Leadership Institute.  The institute is a 9 month program of study aimed at emerging leaders in the Montana library community.  The institute starts with 4 days at the Rising Wolf Ranch in East Glacier Park July 26th-29th.  Participants will explore what it means to be a leader, discover their own leadership style, and form a cohort with their peers that will support them as they tackle a leadership project in their community.  The institute continues with monthly training webinars and meetings that tackle the hard stuff – how to manage change, how to overcome hurdles, how to nurture productive partnerships.   Applications are due April 10th – apply through the Montana State Library Directory.

SAVE THE DATE!   Trustee and director training September 8th at Bozeman Public Library.

Happy learning!  – Jo

March – learn like a lion, practice like a lamb…

Probably not a great use of the weather metaphor for March in my title, but this month’s list of webinars are ready for you to devour anyway.  It’s the season for publishers to get out and promote new titles, so there is a lot of good stuff in that genre, along with a couple of great leadership training events, and lots more.

View and subscribe to the Wyoming State Library Training Calendar at http://library.wyo.gov/services/training/calendar.  (All events are listed in  MT time). These guys to our south compile this great list for us…and you will get information quicker if you visit their site frequently.

Do you have a free program that you would like to share?  Add it to the calendar here: http://library.wyo.gov/services/training/calendar   – and consider letting me host a webinar that you present!  Just contact me with your training idea and we can set up a time that is convenient.  jflick@mt.gov

Build Staff Buy-In for Volunteer Engagement (VolunteerMatch)

Is your organization open to engaging volunteers in new ways? Often one of the biggest challenges to a new model of volunteer engagement is the resistance of paid staff. Often attitudes and fears of our co-workers prevent us from expanding the work that volunteers do. But, if you’ve never worked with volunteers before, it can be scary. In this webinar we’ll discuss strategies for working with paid staff to engage volunteers. We’ll cover what you can do to alleviate some of those fears, strategies for working within a Union environment, and how you can train and support your coworkers as they become responsible for managing volunteers.

Exploring the Costs and Benefits of Cataloging Free Resources (Federal Depository Library Program)

One philosophy of the library catalog is to only include items for which you have paid. On the other hand, there is much free web content that has great value for researchers, including Government information. However, it would not be feasible, or useful, to take on the entire Internet. This webinar examines whether it is worth the time and financial investment to catalog freely-available online resources and will seek to answer the question of measuring the value of placing these resources in the catalog.

Asking Styles: A Revolutionary Concept in the Field (Bloomerang)

Almost 90% of all charitable gifts come from individuals and the largest gifts come from asking one-on-one in person. Accessing these gifts is critical to fulfilling the mission of your organization. So how do you do it? There’s no one right way to ask for a gift. Who you are and what you bring to the table are critically important. When you ask in a way that suits you personally, you will be more comfortable and more effective. You’ll be able to cultivate and solicit individual gifts that allow your organization to fulfill its vision and have the biggest impact possible!

A decade later it was only too evident that the entire digital library, with its hodgepodge of different interfaces and metadata standards, needed to be dragged into the 21st century.

Developing Your Leaders’ Emotional Intelligence to Improve Organizational Performance (Training Magazine Network)

New research is showing that emotional intelligence is no longer a “nice-to-have.” It’s a need to have in today’s workplace and serves as the building block for professional success. It’s not a building block that’s isolated to a few professions or job roles. It’s just about as universal as a success principle can be. EQ, however, is widely misunderstood as something people either have or don’t have.

This session will show what is really getting in the way; how an intentional and clear focus on what you want rather than on what you are trying to avoid turns insight into actions and actions into breakthrough outcomes.

Understanding Soft Risk in Volunteer Engagement (VolunteerMatch)

We all worry about the hard risks that can have an impact on our volunteers and the work they do, but too often we don’t think about the soft risk. Soft risks are the attitudes, beliefs and actions that expose our organizations to risks. Those risks may include the actions of staff – both paid and volunteer, interactions on social media, lack of training for leaders and volunteers – leading to risky behavior, and how failing to screen for characteristics or “fit” can open volunteers and the organization up to risk. This webinar is designed to help attendees identify soft risks in their organization and give them the tools to make changes to processes and culture to minimize and address these risks.

Making the Case for Early STEM Learning (TechSoup)

In turn, this limits public support for the policies, funding, and programs that can foster early learning in these vital areas. We’ll discuss and explore proven, practical ways for early childhood advocates to talk about why and how early STEM matters.
