This spring, LibraryLinkNJ's popular Super Library Supervisor training series met virtually via Zoom in March and April.

LLNJ Super Library Supervisor - Class of 2023

This training series for new and novice supervisors is designed to help prepare the next generation of library mangers and leaders as they work to become exemplary supervisors. Participants from across the state joined us for 4 days of training sessions, tackling the following topics:

  • What it Means to be a Supervisor
  • Know Your Why: Motivating and Supporting Your Staff
  • Personnel Documentation & Evaluation
  • HR Basics Every Supervisor Should Know
  • Open & Honest Communication in the Workplace
  • Building Relationships & Resolving Staff Conflict
  • What Your Staff Aren't Telling You: Leading with Empathy
  • Running Successful Meetings

We want to commend all of this spring's participants on their hard work and commitment to improving their supervisory skills. The series concluded with a graduation ceremony featuring remarks from incoming NJLA President Carina Gonzalez. Thank you to Carina for your words of encouragement and support!
