Leadership is an ongoing challenge for the museum sector - a sector which is experiencing radical change, with museums being redefined from temples of knowledge to a spaces for ideas, social exchange and entrepreneurial thinking. But how can we lead and harness this change in order to ensure our museums are strategic, relevant, thriving organisations and crucially motivated and engaged places to work? Over the course of one hour we will tackle leadership.
This is a workshop for the passionate, the curious and those who want to develop their understanding of how to involve the people who matter (those who deliver the experience) in a process that safeguards their museum’s future success. In order for people to be inspired to act, they have to be involved and invested in what their museum is trying to achieve. But how do you go about this when budgets are tight and resources are limited? The first step is to work with your teams to develop a vision and then provide them with the tools for empowerment – a clear strategic plan, a set of values, then engage them through tangible projects which will help the museum realise it’s goals. To be empowered and motivated people need to understand what’s important and how their work and behaviour can fit into the overall picture of what the museum is trying to achieve.
People matter and this workshop will explore how we can get the best out of everyone.
