Coaching and mentoring happen daily when we work in teams or on larger
projects. Often the exchange of ideas flows in both directions,
resulting in innovative solutions and an enhanced work experience for
everyone. Formalizing these relationships benefit those seeking to
advance or change their career directions and often broaden the horizon
for more seasoned professionals.
The FLICC Human Resources Working Group has created a program to connect
mentors and coaches with interested and enthusiastic professionals who
seek support, advice and career direction as well as specific, practical
information regarding their profession. To launch this program, the
working group invites anyone working in federal libraries/ information
centers interested in becoming a mentor or coach to attend an informal
orientation workshop at the Library of Congress on March 15.
This guided and interactive workshop will cover:
o characteristics of mentors and coaches,
o best practices,
o lessons learned,
o tips and guidelines,
o helpful resources
Both sessions will be held in the FLICC Conference Room at the Library
of Congress Adams Building. Choose either the 9:30 – 12:00 or 1:30 –
4:00 session and please indicate which session you plan to attend when
Seats are limited for the sessions, so please reserve your place today.
(Additional sessions will be offered in the future.)
