LIBER is happy to announce the launch this year of an international leadership development programme, aimed at people who are already in positions of senior management, but who wish to do more to enhance their leadership qualities in preparation for the step up to the next big challenge – that of taking responsibility for leading an organisation through changing times.
Our profession is challenged by a shortage of people both willing and able to lead in an environment of increasingly rapid change. Some countries are already addressing this issue by offering programmes of leadership development for existing directors, and potential high-fliers. The leadership programme will consist of:
- A high level two-day seminar for the next generation of senior leaders in European Research libraries, with courses, to be held on 27th and 28th of June in Barcelona, prior to the LIBER annual conference;
- A year for tutorship, including between one and two weeks of professional training;
- A second seminar with courses and sharing of best practices to be held on 25th and 26 of June 2012 in Tartu, Estonia.
See a full description of the first session of the seminar here.
Deadline for candidates to apply closed on 30 March 2011.
