Building Community Assets
The value of a library lies in its ability to develop community assets, says library educator Ken Haycock. And the future of libraries depends on our ability to share that vision with community leaders.
“How can we become better strategic thinkers and more effective leaders?
Haycock’s advice draws on his personal experience over a career of leadership—inside and outside of libraries.
Connect agendas, focus on the long term, and develop relationships. . . .
Identify a personal board of directors. . . .
Practice the art of influence. . . .
Learn from the world beyond libraries. . . .”
