Steven Bell writes in the ACRLog Blog that library directors should “Run Your Library Like A Circus“. Don’t worry, he doesn’t want libraries to be a crazy and chaotic work or study place, but he would like to see the same kind of teamwork and collaborative effort that members of the Cirque du Soleil staff put together. Bell notes that:
The Show is the Star: You’ll never see a list of the individual performers on a Cirque du Soleil program. The performers have decided it is all about teamwork and collaboration. You’ve got to have incredibly talented individuals, but unless everyone agrees that the show is the star it all falls apart. Unless you’re a team player you don’t last long at this circus.
Let’s go out there and put on a terrific performance. Break a leg.
