Here are some comments from previous Leadership & Management Essentials workshops:

Julie is very informative and holds your attention. I love her workshops I always leave with a lot of good information!!

Has been more than helpful for gaining information and confidence as a new manager.

I love hearing about happenings in libraries outside of my system and how they handle different situations.
