Are you looking for the skills that will take you to that next level of leadership?

Library leaders are constantly managing teams of trustees, staff, volunteers and others. It takes dedicated leadership to turn these groups into one cohesive team striving for a single vision. The Michigan Library Association’s Leadership Academy has a strong history of providing leadership training to librarians across the state and offers the kind of information you wish you could have learned in library school. In the process, you will develop a cohort of colleagues from across the state to call on for support and inspiration as you navigate your way throughout your career. A variety of topics are presented and cover everything from leadership fundamentals to successfully managing the politics inherent in every library position.
