Dear colleagues:
We are proud to present the first session of the 2015 webinar series  
"New Librarians Global Connection: best practices, models and recommendations."
For the 4th consecutive year, IFLA Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning and IFLA New Professionals Special Interest Group are partnering with the American Library Association (ALA) to present a series of free quarterly webinars on issues of interest to new librarians, library associations and library schools, library-decision makers, and all library workers. This is a great opportunity for membership participation via new worldwide online programming. 
We would like to thank the Association of College and Research Libraries, a division of ALA, for the coordination of this webinar.

Following our tradition of excellence, this year our speakers for each of our quarterly sessions come from different regions of the world.

Title: Making the Leap to Library Leadership
Eva Dahlbäck; Acting Head of Customer Service, University of Stockholm
Kimberly Sweetman, Library Consultant (Based in Amsterdam)
This webinar is designed both for people who have been called upon to serve a leadership role and those who wish to take on more leadership responsibility.  The session will outline essential skills for twenty-first century library leaders and help participants to gain a deeper understanding of their own role, as well as that of their department and library, within the larger picture of their umbrella organization. Topics such as emotional intelligence, professional comportment, understanding organizational culture, change management and intellectual agility will be covered in a practical, non-theoretical way.  This webinar is designed to be a small taste of what is offered at such institutes so that participants can begin to chart a course for personal leadership development.

Learning Outcomes:
Participants will develop an understanding of essential skills for library leaders.
Participants will become familiar with the tools for understanding the larger picture of higher education administration.
Participants will learn how to better know their organization to be a more successful leader.
The topics for the webinars are compiled from global surveys, topics presented by speakers during the CPDWL and NPSIG programs at the WLIC 2014 in Lyon, NPSIG working group, and new librarians' forums, listservs and online spaces.
The webinars are presented in April, July and October. Stay tuned for more news!
The webinars are archived, therefore you can join them, ask questions and participate in conversations with international colleagues live, or you can listen to them later, anywhere at any time.
