This week we are looking at strategies for communication! It’s a surprisingly tough skill, but we have some strategies.
Joining us is Guest Host Jami Trenam, from the Great River Library System and the Minnesota Library Association Legislative Committee.
Communication is one of those leadership skills that seems like it should be so easy to do. However, everyone discovers that communicating with colleagues, patrons, Boards, funders, and community members is wildly complicated. It is so easy to issue directions, or to send out a policy, or to post news to your social media account. Just saying things is easy, and if that were the extent of true communication, it would be easy too.
Instead, you need to think of communication as a larger process, each step filled with the possibility of failure.
