Managing competing priorities in unprecedented times calls for new skills. The AALL Management Institute prepares managers to thrive in uncertainty, confidently navigate conflict, and build commitment to strategic goals, and equips them with managerial leadership practices to impact culture and inspire change. Learn creative solutions to handle evolving workplace dynamics, exploring topics such as implicit bias, inclusive communication, managing multi-faceted team environments, and more.

Managers (including aspiring managers)  have the opportunity collaborate with colleagues from across the country, learn in a small group setting, and develop techniques that have long term value and impact.

As Director of a county law library, the Management Institute provided me with a wonderful opportunity to spend one-on-one time with other leaders in different types of libraries and to explore the management process. It was a unique opportunity to explore the complexity of the roles we are engaged in, our personal leadership style, and to receive support in addressing the issues and problems unique to being in a management position. -Diane L. Roberts; Director; Collin County Law Library

It was a pleasure to be amongst a wide spectrum of colleagues who were willing to share their knowledge amongst peers. I was grateful to have participated in the management institute because it has enriched my professional and personal life with relationships that will be long lasting. The content was on point with what I experience as a new manager. Maureen Sullivan did an excellent job in presenting the material and challenging the group to expand our knowledge borders. Great investment!! - Clarence Robertson; Library & Conflicts Manager; Jackson Walker
