Making Changes that Stick (LibraryWorks Webinar)

Making Changes that Stick (LibraryWorks Webinar) Online

The Massachusetts Library System is pleased to announce that we are working with LibraryWorks to provide our members with access to their webinars.  These webinars are free to Massachusetts library workers who register through our calendar. 

Do you want to make a change in your workplace? Whether you are a front-line worker or a senior leader, we can all see opportunities big or small to improve experiences for our colleagues and users. But the dirty secret of organizational change research is this: up to 75% of all change efforts fail. How can you help your idea be among the 25% that do lead to sustainable, ongoing improvements in your library?

As a result of this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Understand key models for implementing and evaluating organizational change
  • Understand how to effectively collaborate to making change sustainable
  • Develop a theory of change that helps you visualize success, spot problems early, and adjust

Presenter: Dr. Audrey Barbakoff is the CEO of Co/Lab Capacity, which helps libraries grow and develop through community-centered consulting. She brings more than a decade of experience in public library leadership and innovation rooted in community engagement. In addition to her MLIS she holds a doctorate in organizational change and leadership; her research focused on building capacity for equity, diversity, and inclusion in public libraries through community-led planning. Her contributions have been recognized by Library Journal Mover & Shakers, Urban Libraries Council Top Innovators, the Kitsap Peninsula Business Journal “20 Under 40” and the Freedom to Read Foundation.
