Whenever we can, we bring together experts and people pushing the envelope to expand the way we employ technology to help us and the people we support. Check back here regularly for archived recordings of these talks.
Panel of certified coaches – who are also librarians – explore the critical role coaching plays in people’s personal and professional development, and the insights surfaced through powerful questions – questions asked through the lens of curiousity.
Jobs to Be Done or JTBD is a framework of thinking that is used when a technology team is looking to launch a new product or a process in a department. It is designed to make sure the people served are getting what they want…not only focusing on your vision. Templates and guidelines are shared that help in decisions relating to processes, procedures, and technologies for the benefit of your patrons and staff. JTBD is a framework/template that can assist in making sure that what you plan to implement satisfies underlying needs.
We talk with an experienced adventurer and author, Kendall Talbot, about her curiosity and imagination. She has traveled to 46 countries, experienced some jaw-dropping adventures (scuba diving with whale sharks, hiking the Cinque Terre, white water rafting, climbing Mayan ruins, dog-sledding on a frozen tundra and exploring Alcatraz), and shaped those experiences into some exciting novels! Join us as she discusses her ideas and imagination from the mysteries of treasure hunting, to surviving in the frozen tundra, the jungle, or the backstreets of Cuba! And of course, how she envisioned the effect of an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) on a cruise ship and the few remaining passengers! Join us for a fun conversation and be prepared to think differently.
