There’s a tradition where I work that I got to experience for the first time this month.
Staff Development Day falls in April. They close the library to patrons and get all the staffers in the big community room to share the workday and learning sessions.
Our presenter this year taught us well about time management in the morning.
And in the afternoon, we broke up in our departments and made collages.
We grabbed magazine to cut out photos and words that best described our daily challenges.
It forced us to think and communicate about what we face every day. Boss Diane and co-workers Edina and Chris and I agreed with what to put on our Communications board.
After all boards were completed, representatives were sent to the front of the room to explain the finished product. I was elected to represent our department. My co-workers said I did well.
I took pictures of the collages, up now in the staff break room.
I enjoy this place very much as I approach my first year anniversary. I can smile about the pieces and the big picture as I drive the couple of miles to an from my house to the library.
What’s going on these days where you work?
