One of Mittermeyer's points is that "Library board can act as buffer from city management “boys’ club, [...] and she reminds us that “in the fierce budget competition for the city’s dollars, the evidence shows that members of the boys’ club get a greater chance to be heard.” Her argument for autonomous library boards is framed by the impact of male-dominated city management teams, where "everybody acknowledges easily the expertise of the city engineers, the city planners, even the city manager. But the expertise of the city librarian. When the engineer says that the street lighting is inadequate in such-and-such area of the city, everybody is inclined to agree. When the library director says that the reference collection is inadequate, one will probably hear: “The what?” ” Show less

Excerpt: "...Show more A blog post by Alexandra Yarrow celebrating the 35th anniversary of the ordination of women to the priesthood in the Diocese of Montreal. Excerpt: "When pressed, I usually say that I have seen the best and the worst in people through my time in the Church. My experiences have been varied, and very valuable: I come from a small family, and in times of great crisis (my father's death), I have felt supported. Years later, Anglicans still go out of their way to share lovely memories of him with me. For an only child, those experiences were priceless. I have also learned about management, leadership, community, compassion, humanism, power struggles, pettiness, harassment, discrimination, human rights (see also -- violations of), scholarship, philosophy, intellectual rigour, volunteer management, building maintenance, fundraising, archives, choral singing, public speaking, and professional development (oh, don't worry, I'm sure I forgot about a dozen other things in there)."

And that really the whole conversation is kind of a crock, achieving very little beyond inducing a low-grade depression in anyone who happens to be listening. Anne-Marie Slaughter would probably agree with this assessment, despite having risen to national prominence with the publication of a 2012 Atlantic Magazine article entitled “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All.” Show less

Organized into an easy-to-follow four-part structure: Part I introduces the concept of leadership, the approach of the book, and descriptions and evaluations of several currently popular situational leadership theories. Part II describes the five core leadership behavior patterns (supportiveness, directiveness, participation, reward/punishment, and charismatic behavior). Part III examines less-researched leader behavior patterns such as boundary-spanning, building social exchanges, and followership. Part IV describes the current leadership issues of ethics, diversity, leadership development, and change, with a concluding chapter that integrates findings from earlier chapters and describes popular leadership styles that are combinations of the specific leader behaviors described earlier. For leadership roles found in business, nursing, military science, criminal justice, education, government or agriculture. Show less

Can we agree that this wall maybe isn’t quite doing what it should be doing? Just looking at everything everyone’s been saying, it seems like we could consider removing it. Possibly. I don’t know, what does the room feel?” “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” Woman in a Meeting: “I have to say — I’m sorry — I have to say this.

I conquered.” Woman in a Meeting: “I don’t want to toot my own horn here at all but I definitely have been to those places and was just honored to be a part of it as our team did such a wonderful job of conquering them.” Show less
