The emerging leadership landscape: Six perspectives
Canadian Library Association
The Canadian LIS community is resonating with concern over a perceived deficit of quality applicants in the pool of new professionals. According to the 8Rs report The Future of Human Resources in Canadian Libraries, “virtually all types of libraries in the Canadian system are finding it the most difficult to fulfill their leadership, managerial, flexibility, innovation, technology, and workload needs.”1 Most interestingly, when the report ranked the top 10 most important and simultaneously most difficult to fulfill competencies, leadership potential rated number one.
