The Renewal Colloquium for Formal Leaders

The Renewal Colloquium for Formal Leaders In-Person

  • Which session should I attend? There will be two sessions of this event in order to best address participant perspectives. This 11:30am session is designed for library directors and managers. All other library staff are invited to attend The Renewal Colloquium for Library Staff at 10:00am (Register here).
  • What should I do to prepare for The Renewal Colloquium? Participants in this program should first view The Renewal Presentation. You may attend live on 9/22/21 at 10:00am, or view the recording afterwards. Please also complete the brief pre-work assignment that will be provided in advance of this session.
The Renewal Colloquium for Formal Leaders reviews low morale data and focuses on how the low-morale experience phenomenon intersects with leadership and creates unique challenges to formal administrative work. This session is for attendees who have formal supervisory/managerial/administrative roles. Attendees are encouraged to informally discuss, explore, and resolve questions about Kendrick's low morale studies, and will have an opportunity to submit questions for consideration before the event.
Brief pre-work will be offered to prepare attendees for the event.
Learning Outcomes
During and after this event, attendees will be able to:
  • Recognize the stages of a low-morale experience
  • Describe the issues that impact leaders' low-morale experiences
  • Identify leadership styles and behaviors that support and/or reduce the spread of low morale
