NextGen Leadership Scorecard

Description

ALIA President Robert Knight has taken leadership as the theme for his presidential year, from May 2019 to May 2020, highlighting the vital role of strong leadership at every level, in order to secure a sustainable future for the library and information sector. 
 
ALIA is investigating where the sector is performing well, and where there is room for improvement, in order to produce the ‘NextGen Leadership Scorecard’, highlighting where we need to invest our energies going forward. Five themes were identified: identifying future leaders; transfer of knowledge; development of skills; providing opportunities to experience leadership; leadership independent of the workplace. From these themes and the feedback through the pilot survey, we have identified eight desirable characteristics for an LIS sector with a robust approach to leadership. In order to assess our current position and the size of the gap between where we are now and our vision, ALIA is undertaking a survey. The results of the survey will provide a snapshot of perception and sentiment.
