Session 3 of the five-session series Re-envisioning Technical Services:
Identifying Leadership and Talent Management Best Practice

Description: This webinar brings together three case studies in cultivating
talent: Residency Training, Peer Training, and Leadership Succession
Planning. The presenters will describe the benefits, outcomes, and lessons
learned from projects that supported librarians at different stages
throughout their careers. The session includes three case studies that show
how carefully designed programs can support the development of individual
librarians and also strengthen the library's strategic efforts to cultivate
and retain a diverse workforce and ensure continuity of expertise.

Learning outcomes:

After attending this webinar attendees will have:

1. Familiarity with several approaches to supporting professional
development in technical services;

2. An understanding of how talent management takes place in a variety of
leadership development, succession planning, and continuing education and
training programs for all levels of staff;

3. Practical ideas about how to implement or enhance education and talent
management in several types of library settings;

4. Knowledge of program models that can support or enhance their library's
talent management efforts and professional development goals.
