Creating a Positive Workplace Part 2


Slides for Creating a Positive Workplace Part 2part2

Everyone wants to work in an organization that’s brimming with positive energy. But how can we create and maintain a positive work environment, especially when “Negative Nancy” is in the library? Creating a healthy, positive work environment is the key to employees being happier with their work an in turn more efficient and productive . The challenge is “how” do we do create it?
This interactive and fun two part webinar series examines four hurdles that library leaders face when bringing about positive changes in the library workplace and gives practical ideas for overcoming those hurdles. We’ll include case studies from libraries that have successfully created a healthier library for the employees and their patrons, including some of the mistakes that were made along the way!  In Part Two, we’ll examine:


  • Hurdle # 3 – Motivating employees by inclusion: Ultimately, your people have to want to make the change. But how will you help them stay motivated through the process?
  • Hurdle #4 – Having a resistance plan for your change implementation. People will resist, count on it!

Audience: All Utah library workers
