This Speaker's Sessions

Addressing the Problem of Incivility in the Library Workplace

The concepts of library workplace dysfunction and incivility will be introduced along with a variety of solutions to shape a positive and productive library work environment.  While dysfunction is always present and is part of being human, shining a light on it is just as important to minimize its impact.  Topics discussed which impact workplace dysfunction include toxic behaviors, ineffective collaboration, organizational culture, poor communications, and weak leadership.  The presenters will also share results of a 2017 incivility survey of 4,186 library workers.
