New to Management (2/10/18)

October’s #auslibchat focused on all things leadership and management. Catch up via Wakelet.

Here are the questions:

  1. In your experience what makes a good manager?
  2. In terms of career goals, do you see yourself in a leadership or management position? Why/why not?
  3. Have you benefited from a professional mentor relationship? What would you want to get out of that relationship?
  4. What one thing would you like to know about being a manager? Or wish you had known before taking on that role?
  5. How do you support your PD in the areas of leadership or management? Do you have resources you could recommend?

In addition to this chat, we’re inviting the #auslibchat community to share their ideas around an online support network for those new to leadership or management. We’ve created a Padlet where you can share your ideas. It’s open now so let’s get brainstorming!
