Be a Great Boss: One Year to Success, a 2011 ALA Editions bestseller, is organized like a calendar along 12 monthly themes comprising 52 modules. Growing as a manager means learning by experience. Even so, professional development does not have to be haphazard. The book invites you to learn proactively, providing structure and a print companion on what can be a lonely journey.
In this season of goal-setting, make your commitment to improved management skills more social and register for the new ALA Editions Workshop Be a Great Boss: The Kickoff to Your Year of Learning. Starting January 5, author Catherine Hakala-Ausperk will present a series of four webinars over the next three months. With her as your guide, you will join fellow participants in a learning community, interacting in chat during the webinars and in email discussions in between sessions.
Catherine presented a Workshop in the fall. Her comment on the follow-up blog post is an example of the guidance that you can expect after webinar discussions.
