Motivating Library Employees in Tough Times
Samantha Hines, Head Librarian, Missoula College Library @ the University of Montana (MT)
Doing more and more with less and with raises hard to be found, libraries may find their employees stuck in a thankless position, at least as we see traditional forms of thanks in the workplace. I will look at some of the current thinking on how to motivate employees in the workplace, including Daniel Pink’s recent book, Drive, and translate them to a library audience. Attendees from any type of library will learn ways to make their employees feel more appreciated, from the volunteer to the manager to the board (or even how to motivate yourself!)
