Send your coworkers, colleagues, mentors, and library leaders you admire a digital leadership badge. Select the badge you wish to send, fill out this short form, and your badge will arrive in your recipient’s inbox. There are three badges to choose from:
High Five: This badge is given to those who have accomplished a goal, finished a project, or had a great week. Want to make sure someone knows you noticed their excellent work? Give them a High Five!
Everyday Hero: This badge is given to those that show hero-like tendencies. Did you witness someone who went above and beyond their job simply because they could? Tell them what a hero they are!
Super Star: This badge is given to those who light up your workspace. Do you know someone who radiates positivity? This is the badge for them!
Leadership has been identified as a continuing education need for the Idaho library community. In an effort to further define the leadership skills and behaviors valued by the Idaho library community, the Idaho Commission for Libraries (ICFL), in co-operation with the Idaho Library Association (ILA), convened a two-day summit in April 2014. During the summit 50 individuals from across library types, library positions and geographic locations engaged in meaningful conversation regarding leadership development and how best to approach it at a statewide level in order to sustain Idaho libraries as community anchor institutions.
