Addressing Dysfunction and Incorporating Self-Care for Library Staff

Addressing Dysfunction and Incorporating Self-Care for Library Staff

 

Concepts from the authors' book, The Dysfunctional Library, will be the focus for the first half of the interactive session. Topics include workplace incivility, toxic behaviors, conflict, and weak leadership. The team will also introduce a variety of solutions to shape a positive and productive library work environment. The second portion of the session will focus on concepts from the authors' book, The Mindful Librarian. Participants will be introduced to the basic principles of mindfulness and discover the multitude of ways that mindful practice can improve the specific work librarians do, from reference services to workplace relationships to goal-setting and much more. Ideas for dealing with stress and burnout will be discussed and participants will receive multiple suggestions and resources to gain deeper knowledge on the topic in the future.
