Building, Enriching, and Maintaining Relationships
Professional Practice Series: Building, Enriching, and Maintaining Relationships
Relationships can play important roles in our professional lives. They can help us navigate various landscapes and support us through difficult and challenging stages. They exist in many forms, and at many levels – from mentors, to colleagues, to supervisors. There are people we work closely with, and those we may never meet in person. There are relationships we seek out, and those that find us. They all have purpose and meaning.
During this interactive session, we will explore the various roles that relationships play across our careers. We will come up with strategies and tools to help us form, maintain, and enrich these connections; we will discuss differences between virtual and face-to-face relationships; and we will talk about the value of narrative in developing confidence and understanding. We will also look at how to navigate overlapping networks to develop visibility and create an effective professional profile. Bring a notebook for journaling, and ideas and questions to share.
Join the ACRL/NY New Librarians’ Discussion Group and Mentoring Program for an exploration of this topic and networking with colleagues! Refreshments will be served.
