Library Leadership and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator

Leaders of a protest

Leaders of a protest in Salamanca, Spain, May 12, 2012.

March and April were busy months! So busy, in fact, that all I have to share with you today is a press release for my upcoming webinar about Library Leadership and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. I hope that you can join me for a fun and informative webinar.

Is there one personality type that makes the best library leaders? And what if you don’t happen to be that type? The reality is that any personality type can develop into an effective library leader by understanding themselves and the people with whom they work.

The Library Leadership & Management Association (LLAMA) will present “Library Leadership and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®” from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. Central time (2:30 to 4:00 p.m. EST) on Wednesday, June 5, 2013.

Presenter Jennifer A Keach is Director of Digital Services at James Madison University, Harrisonburg, Virginia. She is a certified Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) facilitator.

Participants will:

  • Identify what their Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® can tell them about their leadership style
  • Learn about the most common personality types among librarians
  • Learn how to embrace individual leadership strengths when leading others
  • Identify strategies for developing “non-preference” skills related to leadership

This webinar will include a very brief refresher/overview of the MBTI® and will focus on applying your MBTI® type. It will not include the completion and interpretation of the MBTI®. To get the most out of the workshop, participants are encouraged to identify their MBTI® type beforehand.

Some options for identifying your type are available here: http://www.ala.org/llama/mbti%C2%AE-resources

LLAMA member: $49
Non-LLAMA member $59
LLAMA group rate (5 or more people at one site) $199
