Northeast Ohio Regional Library System - Event Information

Event Name:Rebuilding Our Why - For Managers
Competency:Management, Communication, and Customer Service
Description:There was a day in the not-so-distant past when folks who needed access to reading materials, computer information, and other life pursuits, naturally sought out their local library.

In today’s world, though, our patrons have options – those options are also known as “our competition.” So that we may stay competitive (and continue to exist!), we’ll need to offer not only our level of service pre-COVID, but also new services and programs as we move into the future. And, we’ll need to do all of that in a timely, friendly, and welcoming manner. That will require teamwork and the best efforts of everyone on our staff.

Learning Objectives:
  • Discuss ways to help staff deal with the lingering fear of COVID in our environment
  • How we can return to the same level of service as before the pandemic – and work as a team
  • How to help staff understand the importance of them bringing their best selves to work each day since some staff members may have fallen into a comfort zone that is not as busy as they once were
The last 30 minutes of this session will be a networking meeting for customer service managers.  Please join for a discussion with your peers.
