Managing in the Middle

Posted by jlubans on January 03, 2013

Managing in the Middle, edited by Robert Farrell and Kenneth Schlesinger, is out! The book* “brings together the collective wisdom of some of today's most experienced and insightful public and academic library middle managers. The book is organized as a practical handbook -- a vade mecum, of sorts -- that can be consulted when issues arise. It can also be read sequentially by professionals and students looking for a concise but thorough overview of the skills managers need and challenges they face over the course of a middle management career.”
One of the chapters is “Taking Risks and Letting Go, Creating and Coaching Teams: An Interview with John Lubans.”
I encourage you to read this collection of practitioner ideas and front-line thinking.
