  • 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 Library staff reviews low morale data and delves into deeper discussion of these experiences. This session is for attendees who do not 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.

  • Recognize the stages of a low-morale experience
  • Discuss enabling systems and their role in low-morale experience
  • Examine the characteristics of low-morale workplace
  • Create a basic plan for workplace environment improvement
