Director Roundtables (In Person | North Central District)

May 26, 2022, 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM

Director Roundtables are making a comeback this spring in an important way— they are back as in-person events. Sponsored by the State Library and facilitated by District Consultants, this year’s Director Roundtables are based on ideas from the book “When to Say Yes” by Don Khouri. Roundtables are designed in a 3-hour format, with the first portion being a guided discussion about being positioned to say “yes” to new opportunities. Of course, being able to say YES to new things is great, but doing so often demands letting go and saying NO to old practices and old habits. Bringing in the book "When to Say Yes," we’ll talk about the importance of being “purposely productive,” balancing the need to stay current with the tendency to keep doing things the old way. Plus, time to learn techie tools from each other. The last portion will be given over to open-ended discussion.
