Disclosure: I am currently the public relations officer of the University of the Philippines Library Science Alumni Association. But since the objective of this seminar is not inconsistent with what I have written here in the past, I hope you will excuse the plug and my enthusiasm =)What are the qualities of an effective leader? What is the difference between a leader and a manager? How can librarians develop their leadership skills? Can librarians working alone be considered leaders? Why do librarians need to be leaders?
All these questions and more will be answered in the context of the current political crisis, and in the wake of the "useless" controversy, at "The Leadership Challenge," a forum organized by UPLSAA, which will be held on Wednesday, August 31, from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon.
Mr. Dennis S. Ycasiano, the guest speaker, is a consultant who has developed and implemented training programs for Citibank, Pepsi Cola, Shell and Colgate, and other companies in Southeast Asia.
The occasion and venue for the forum will be the 26th Manila International Book Fair, which will be held at the World Trade Center in Roxas Boulevard, Manila, from August 31 to September 4.
Registration fee is Php 50.00 for members and students, and Php 100.00 for non-members, inclusive of certificates and handouts.
