Who’s Keeping Score?: Director Performance Evaluations That Work

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Evaluating a Library Director’s performance is part of the groundwork for successful communication between a board and its organization’s leader. But how do you do it effectively? Do you work off a checklist? Is it written, verbal, or both? What falls within the scope of the evaluation, and what might not? There is good news here: not only are there countless approaches, but there are many ways to do them well. When successes are celebrated and expectations are agreed upon, everybody benefits.

In this session, you’ll hear diverse experiences, gain access to different review processes (and forms) effectively used by Colorado libraries, and--here’s the best part--take it all back to your library to create a successful system, tailored to your library’s unique values and goals.

Learning Outcomes:
  1. You’ll leave this session with the confidence to constructively assess your current evaluation process, improve upon what works, and let go of areas that are hampering success. You’ll be able to “evaluate” the “evaluation”.
  2. You’ll be able to take the fear and anxiety out of evaluations by identifying how the process flows from a plan, and how the process benefits from regular communication throughout the year.
  3. You’ll learn how to identify all the key elements for success: mission statements; outlining meaningful and measurable goals; creating shared checklists and guidelines; structuring the review meeting for effective communication; and assuring that both parties agree and understand the “next steps” within a mutual spirit of collaboration.
