Last month, we shared part two in our series on leadership based on Paula Singer's recent webinar presentation to the Urban Libraries Council. The webinar focused on helping leaders increase and maintain organizational relevancy.
If you missed last month's article - or, even the first installment - simply click on the links that follow:
Part One - The Five Practices of Progressive Leaders
Part Two - Self Awareness & Authenticity: The Making of a Progressive Leader
This month, we present the final installment in the series - Emotional Intelligence: The Ever-Evolving Leader. We hope you enjoy the article and, as always, we look forward to hearing your thoughts.
In addition, please see information below about Paula's upcoming work with the Florida Library Association!
