Bring out the best in the people you work with or supervise by following the six-step INVEST method. This easy-to-follow approach focuses on the human element in the daily interactions of working with people in technical services by Inquiring, Noting, Valuing, Encouraging, Supporting, and Trusting. This approach holds the potential to change work environments and increase productivity and efficiency. The session will engage participants with electronic polling providing self-reflection and a fun interactive learning experience.


James Rhoades has been Assistant Director of Continuing and Electronic Resources at Virginia Tech Libraries since June 2022. Prior to Virginia Tech he worked as a public services professional at Old Dominion University and Florida State University. During his final three years at ODU, he served in a joint role that included being the Collection Development Coordinator. That opportunity opened his eyes to a new and wonderful world and newfound respect for the inner workings and complexities of library resources. It revealed there’s no magic, rather lots of smart, dedicated, and hard-working staff ensuring people have access to resources - highlighting the importance of finding ways to appreciate them.
