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 will bring 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 (among others) 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.
NISO assumes organizations register as a group. The model assumes that an unlimited number of staff will be watching the live broadcast in a single location, but also includes access to an archived recording of the event for those who may have timing conflicts.
NISO understands that, during the current pandemic, staff at a number of organizations may be practicing safe social distancing or working remotely. To accommodate those workers, we are allowing registrants to share the sign-on instructions with all colleagues so that they may join the broadcast directly.
Registrants receive sign-on instructions via email on the Friday prior to the virtual event. If you have not received your instructions by the day before an event, please contact NISO headquarters for assistance via email (email@example.com).
Registrants for an event may cancel participation and receive a refund (less $35.00) if the notice of cancellation is received at NISO HQ (firstname.lastname@example.org) one full week prior to the event date. If received less than 7 days before, no refund will be provided.
Links to the archived recording of the broadcast are distributed to registrants 24-48 hours following the close of the live event. Access to that recording is intended for internal use of fellow staff at the registrant’s organization or institution. Speaker presentations are posted to the NISO event page.
NISO uses the Zoom platform for purposes of broadcasting our live events. Zoom provides apps for a variety of computing devices (tablets, laptops, etc.) To view the broadcast, you will need a device that supports the Zoom app. Attendees may also choose to listen just to audio on their phones. Sign-on credentials include the necessary dial-in numbers, if that is your preference. Once notified of their availability, recordings may be downloaded from the Zoom platform to your machine for local viewing.
