What happens if I am selected?
LIBER will inform you and your Director that you have been selected. Then, you will receive an invoice. You will receive further information later, by email (practical information, full programme, first contact information, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator questionnaire, …).
The pace of the course will be fairly brisk to enable a coverage of all of the essential material. There will be an emphasis on ‘self’ within the course ; increased self-awareness is a great place to begin our leadership journey. Combined with this will be the entertaining presentation of established facts and theory about leadership, followed up each time with group discussion. In advance of the first course, delegates will be expected to complete a Myers-Briggs Type Indicator questionnaire, and there will be some required reading. During the course each delegate will complete an i-SWOT as a means to reflect on their personal strengths and weaknesses in relation to the challenges of the opportunities and threats likely to be presented in their current or next role. We will also play the Johari’s window ‘game’ of disclosure and feedback : what can you tell about yourself and what can others tell about yourself? The approach will be sensitive to individual needs and conducted in a non-threatening way. It will be fun rather than uncomfortable!
Following completion of the course, delegates will ‘meet’ the members of their action-learning sets regularly by conference call and will go for one week of professional training between July 2017 and May 2018, which will not be domestic, but definitely abroad. During the whole process, each delegate will also be assigned a mentor from a LIBER member library, providing a high-value and customized experience.
