American Association of Law Libraries Webinar on Soft Skills

The American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) will be holding a webinar on January 28, 2015 (11AM-noon Central time) on the topic of Soft Skills: Professional Indicators of Success:
"Employers recruit librarians and staff based on hard and technological skills. However, 'soft skills,' those personal attributes which drive our interactions on the job, are prized as key indicators for professional success and organizational effectiveness.  Employers are increasingly looking for staff who understand when to push forward or let others lead, can analyze the politics of the workplace, and respond effectively to difficult managerial and interpersonal situations. These intangible skills are important to career growth and organizational success. Learn how to harness these important skills to gain confidence and long-term professional effectiveness."
The speaker will be Jack G. Montgomery is Professor and Coordinator of Acquisitions / Collection Services at Western Kentucky University Libraries. He is the co-author of Conflict Management for Libraries: a strategy for a positive, productive workplace (ALA Editions, 2005).
