Abstract

Effective leadership begins with understanding how you learn and process information. In this workshop, participants will understand the merits of using a learning skills inventory tool to help ourselves and colleagues understand how we process information and how it affects our collaboration and communication with others who don’t think like librarians! Presenters will discuss how taking the learning skills inventory helped USF librarians better understand how, for example, IT staff tend to process information differently and how this affected their communication with them. Participants will share about their own learning pattern tendencies and their challenges in collaborating with “non-library” units.
