Becky Schreiber & John Shannon, Partners
Schreiber Shannon Associates
For 40 years, John and Becky have been providing consulting services to private industry and government clients, first as internal organization development consultants; and since 1982, as partners with Schreiber Shannon Associates.
Since that time, they have also contributed their talents to library and information services. In 1989, they designed and facilitated the Library Leadership Institute at Snowbird, a national effort to identify, train, and network library leaders of the future to transform libraries for the needs of the 21st century. The Institute is now regarded as one of the first and finest leadership development programs in the country. It spawned many State Leadership Institutes that John and Becky have also facilitated, and took them around the globe to provide the Aurora Leadership Institute for Australians and New Zealanders.
They designed and have facilitated the California Eureka! Library Leadership Institute for the past five years. Their work in California also includes their popular Leading From Any Position which encourages initiative from any level of an organization, using Peter Senge’s Learning Organization concepts and practical models to examine work processes, facilitate teams, setting priorities, doing creative problem solving, and building work relationships. They have worked with senior Mentors in their Institutes, and have designed Mentoring projects in libraries.
