Resilience & Curiosity

Resilience & Curiosity

January 25, 2017 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm GWU Himmelfarb Health Sciences Library
2300 I St NW
Washington, DC  20052

A Purposeful Conversation with Barbara Beizer

The characteristics and applications of resilience are as diverse as they are complex and contextual. In this informative, interactive session we will explore:

    • what current research reveals about resilience,
    • what makes us personally resilient, and
    • how practicing curiosity can lead us beyond coping to transformative resilience.

We’ll delve into the origins of your personal resilience, and what has made you resilient up until now. With a simple assessment process, you will discover your resilience strengths and you’ll leave the session with a template you can use to map your pathways to greater resilience in the future.

Barbara Beizer is a Certified Life, Leadership and Transition Coach, leveraging her career in organizational leadership development and change management to help others see differently and do things more effectively. She designs conversations that matter around her current passions of resilience and transition. She serves on the Board of The Transition Network, and is an active member of the Life Planning Network for professionals dedicated to promoting positive aging. Barbara has a Masters Degree in Organizational Development and is a graduate of Georgetown University’s Leadership Coaching Program.

Happy Hour at Crumbs and Whiskers, the Georgetown cat cafe

By popular demand, we’re having a happy hour at Crumbs and Whiskers. This event is limited to 15 people, but we can schedule another session if there’s enough interest. We’re allowed to bring our own food and drinks, but have been asked to bring things that don’t tend to spill bits of food like Chipotle. Perhaps we can just order pizza, I’ll post more information as we get closer to the event.

Trends and Tools in Special #Libraries

"Relevant trends from the greater library field (and what special libraries can learn from them"

Every year IMLS funds thousands of library projects throughout the U.S., including some of the most 
innovative work in the field.  This session will point to the top trends and tools that are emerging 
from grant-funded and other work in public and academic libraries.  Learn how they are reinventing 
themselves as centers of learning, crowdsourcing hubs, and facilitators of community conversations.  
While corporate and government libraries are generally ineligible for IMLSgrants, you’ll gain a broader 
perspective of the field at large, and you might even leave with ideas that work in your library.

Teri, Senior Program Office, State Programs, at Institute of Museum and Library Services and Madison Bolls, together
represent the broadest view of IMLS library funding. Teri helps manage the Grants to States program, which 
funds over 1,500 library projects a year in communities across America.  Teri works extensively with state 
libraries and makes several site visits a year into the field.  Before her latest move to the Grants Administration
office Madison helped manage multiple discretionary grant programs, which are awarded on a competitive basis following 
peer review. These funds support some of the most innovative work in the field, result in open source tools that can be 
adopted by others, and ensure that training for the current and future library workforce remains robust.  
Both Teri and Madison also support the agency’s work to shape policy and have a birds-eye view of library 
trends happening across the U.S.  Before they worked at IMLS, Teri and Madison worked in federal library 
environments and both have been longtime SLA members.
