Leading a team of staff who are physically separated from one another presents special challenges for today’s library leaders. Understanding these challenges and the best ways to meet them can help your team run smoothly.

This webinar, presented by The Library Leadership and Management Association (LLAMA), will cover methods and concepts for managing a team where members are not located next to or near each other, whether separated by different floors in the same building, different buildings in a close area, or separated by long distances such as different states or countries.

By the end of this webinar participants will:
• Know key factors for leading a successful dispersed team.
• Understand principles for managers of dispersed teams.
• Learn considerations for chairpersons of location diverse committees.
• Have a description and brief explanation of traditional methods for dispersed team management.
• Explore newer tools, such as online meeting options, document sharing possibilities, scheduling tools, and more that can aid in the management of a dispersed team.

This webinar will be presented by Kelly Sattler, Head of Web Services at Michigan State University.
