What Participants say about Efficient Librarian Workshops

“Thanks to Doug we are now even more efficient.  Not only did he give us the tools we needed to improve, but he did so in such a way that was funny and engaging.  We were truly impressed.  His training made a significant impact on all of our employees and everyone is continuing to implement what they learned.”
– Laurie George, CEO, United Way of Palm Beach County.

“When Doug said to keep engaged with the material. There was a chart that was displayed that showed how quickly we would be able to forget the information. And because of this, I am staying engaged with the material. I am staying up to date!”
– Brittan

“Thank you for the wonderful presentation today.  I found it entertaining and believe it will be most useful.  … I can immediately put a lot of this into action efficiently.”
– Graham

“Doug Crane knows the material and is a very good presenter. I was surprised at how much I already do that he recommended and I will apply some new things to maintain a good workflow.”
– Anonymized feedback from a PLAN workshop participant

“The information presented was extremely helpful and I have already begun to apply the lessons learned. Doug Crane is an excellent speaker and made a boring topic interesting and fun.”
– Panama City (FL) Workshop Participant

“Doug Crane’s enthusiasm for practical efficiency is marvelous. His proposal, that every one of us is capable of improved personal organization, is so credible that I am actually encountering this survey in my ten minute email sweep! Doug’s obvious respect for every member of the staff, the premise that every person’s work is essential and everyone’s time is valuable, creates an atmosphere of inclusion. Belonging is key to effective motivation, and Doug Crane is exemplary in his appreciation of the library staff as a team.”
– Panama City (FL) Workshop Participant

“Clear email inbox! No more hemming and hawing over emails and leaving them unanswered… Still a fan of this workshop!”
– Michelle

“It has been great! One of the most useful workshops I have attended.”
– Christine
