In support of flourishing: Practices to engage, motivate, affirm, and appreciate

Librarianship was struggling with issues of burnout, low morale, and low engagement prior to 2020, although the COVID-19 pandemic highlighted and exacerbated these issues. The library profession continues to grapple with issues of health and safety, hybrid work arrangements, and general uncertainty about the future. Because of this, we need to focus on how to engage and motivate our colleagues and strengthen our organizations. This column discusses engagement and motivation models for supporting colleagues and identifies the Appreciative Inquiry process for transforming organizations, concluding with practical takeaways that will empower readers to explore these ideas.
