Enthusiasm can be easily overlooked as a significant leadership competency. As long as you have a mission, a strategic plan, and a staff – do you need anything else? Well, yes. Yes, you do. Any leader can immediately tell you the difference between a staff or a group that is only reluctantly going along with you to accomplish goals, and one that is excited to make things happen.

Leaders are not the only cause of a good workplace, but a leader with enthusiasm for the library, for the mission, for the staff, and for the patrons, can make a positive difference in it all.

 What do we mean by enthusiasm? It does not have to be overly syrupy, saccharine-sweet cheerleading. That can get old, fast. Instead we mean optimism, positive emotional connection to whatever you are working on in your library.
