Greetings LIS 7700
You can find the syllabus through Kateway.
Please note that we will likely be meeting in CDC 20. You can expect an email from me closer to the start of class. I will provide coffee, juice and snacks for our first meeting, so don’t feel like you need to bring anything.
As I mentioned in the video, please read or listen to Getting Naked. Think about the importance of vulnerability in management and service. Also ponder other themes in the book and how they apply to LIS.
Please also read the Army Teams case study, chapters 1&2 in Bolman and Deal as well as the 3 articles mentioned in the syllabus.
Below you will find the list of context books. Remember that you don’t need to get started on this assignment before class starts. Should you decide to get a head start, please use the comments box below to make your book selection. Please only one person per title (first come, first serve).

Hello. I’m choosing Organizational Storytelling for Libraries by Kate Marek.
Alison, that is a great choice
Greetings and salutations!
Is it okay to choose a book that isn’t on the list? I was thinking of Fish! A Proven Way to Boost Morale and Improve Results.
If not, then I will take, Who Moved My Cheese?
That sounds great to me. It has been a long time since I’ve read it so your overview will be a welcome refresher.
Hi. I am going to read Search Inside Yourself by Chade-Meng Tan.
I think you will find the book enlightening. Great choice.
Not wanting to be catch the short straw by waiting until the class actually starts… I’m going to pick Tribes by Seth Godin.
I’m also a coach, so I’m hoping something about teams and leadership will be applicable there as well.
Tribes will certainly apply to coaching.
Welcome to St. Kate’s,
I choose Drive by Daniel Pink.
I think you will find Drive a very motivating read.
I have chosen Sandberg, Sheryl. Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead. Thank you and enjoy this wonderful weather we are having. Welcome to St. Kate’s!!

I loved the biography of Jobs. I think you will see many ways to relate it to LIS.
I’d love to read Inside Apple by Adam Lashinsky.
I think you will find lots to chew on.
