Managing for People Who Hate Managing (American Management Association)

Nobody prepared you for having to deal with emotions and conflicts and personalities, all while trying to meet ever-greater goals and more pressing deadlines.

Basically, thinkers lead with their heads and feelers lead with their hearts. Working with—rather than fighting against—your strengths is key to understanding not only how you make decisions and manage but also how people react to your decisions and respond to you.

Are Books Your Brand? How Libraries Can Stay Relevant to Readers (Library Journal)

The core mission of libraries – providing books for readers – is as relevant today as it was years ago. In fact, it’s what people overwhelmingly identify as THE reason for libraries. Formats might change, and library patrons might only visit the library virtually, but the library is still the place where readers go to find books. Libraries should embrace this role in their communities – and become “Centers for Readers.” But how? Hear from several librarians who are keeping readers at the forefront of the library mission.
