The Victoria University Librarian commenced in 2009 with a strong change agenda, with an emphasis on cultural change. He initiated a leadership program to underpin this change agenda and strengthen the ability of the Library’s leaders to drive innovation and change. The program comprised workshops, preference profiling, individual coaching, action-learning projects and tutorials. Evaluation of the program assessed its worth and effectiveness in contributing to organisational goals. In particular, it assessed the extent to which the program improved the participants’ ability to take up a leadership role strongly and to lead change. The program produced benefits to the Library which would not have been delivered, had it not occurred.
