Building successful, collaborative teams requires more than just picking people with a specific set of skills. Managers must also balance the need to support their team’s motivation and enthusiasm with planning requirements and time constraints. What are best practices for team communications? How can you ensure collective, as well as individual, accountability? What are the best ways of handling those “awkward” conversations that inevitably arise? When do you negotiate with your team and when are you justified in making demands of them? This roundtable discussion brought together a group of experienced managers from across the information community to share the lessons they’ve learned, as well as their secrets for success.
Confirmed speakers include Deni Auclair, Editorial Director, HSS Journals and US Partnerships, DeGruyter; Barry Bealer, Chief Revenue Officer, Access Innovations; Heather Staines, Senior Consultant and Director of Community Engagement, DeltaThink; and Tony Zanders, Founder and CEO, Skilltype.
