• We Value Leadership Throughout Our Organization

      Spencer, Gene; Bucknell University (2006-04-07)
      Over the past several years, Bucknell University has been deeply engaged in creating a combined Library/IT organization. Because of the complex work of merging two related but very different organizations (with vastly different organizational cultures), we have had to be purposeful and thoughtful about developing a new culture that brings the best of our traditional organizations forward. Early in the process, we developed a set of "values" which includes "We Value Leadership Throughout the Organization." Success depends on all members of the organization providing appropriate leadership in their work. Our leadership value has an impact on our professional development, communication and collaboration activities. This presentation describes how we are putting significance to this value and what it means for our entire staff, as well as people in "leadership positions."
