About the Institute

LMSI I is a highly interactive experience that brings together tried-and-true management principles with best practices in libraries. Over 3 days, expert DJA facilitators engage up to 40 participants in case studies, personal reflection, practical application, and group discussions on the following principles and skills that are key to effective management:

  • Management in context

  • Behavioral styles

  • Power dynamics and influencing skills

  • Participatory decision making

  • The helping relationship

  • Motivation

  • Coaching for performance

The content is designed to be particularly beneficial for supervisors, department heads, coordinators, managers, administrators, team and project leaders, or anyone interested in growing as a leader or manager. Widely respected across the library profession, all DJA programs are designed with the adult learner in mind and have a strong reputation of equity, diversity, and inclusion; collaborative learning; practical application; and expert facilitation.

For all participants, visits to libraries at Duke, North Carolina Central University (NCCU), North Carolina State University (NCSU), and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-Chapel Hill) may be arranged depending on interest.
