- We suck our hard workers dry, and can’t understand why they turn into dust in the wind.
- We undervalue what we have in-house, and respond badly to open expressions of ambition.
- We compensate for our perceived failings in strange and valueless ways.
- We forget that our really remarkable new librarians are still new librarians
This term, I’ve been focussing on the development and career progression of my team members, and ways of measuring our success as a team, building on it and celebrating our accomplishments.
New leadership is coming to my organisation this season: a new Bursar next month and a new Principal in September. I am looking forward to working with them to help to continue to develop my team and the service we provide. The changes and potential ahead are exciting!
