Lead Like A Pro: Effective Leadership Styles For Athletic Coaches

VIA ZOOM

With each passing year, athletic coaches are asked to take on increased leadership responsibilities for their athletes and team. However, they don’t always have the opportunity to receive the necessary coach-related leadership education and training that would provide them with the knowledge and tools required to effectively coach the team, manage the athletes and parents, and deal with any unexpected conflicts or tensions that arise during the season. This talk is designed specifically for athletic coaches to provide them with foundational leadership knowledge and teach them techniques they can use to practice the best leadership style and behaviors that align with their personal values and beliefs. During this program, Dr. Raidbard will give an introduction to leadership practice, and discuss the importance of coaches viewing themselves as leaders and making intentional leadership choices. He will also talk about how coaches can determine what the best leadership style and behaviors are for them to practice based on their personal values and beliefs. This program is also designed to help coaches understand the impact their leadership choices can have both positively and negatively on the athletes they coach.

Dr. Matthew Raidbard has spent the past 15 years as a men's college basketball coach and senior-level college athletics administrator. While pursuing his Doctorate in Educational Leadership, he conducted research on athletic coach leadership practice that led him to determine that coaches were not being provided the tools and resources required to take on the outsized leadership role they were asked to take on for their athletes and team. This discovery was the inspiration for his new book, "Lead Like A Pro: Effective Leadership Styles For Athletic Coaches," where he provides coaches, at all levels of sports, with tools to enhance their leadership practice and become more effective leaders.

Understanding The Big Three in Astrology

For Students in Grades 9-12 and Adults:

Did you know that your personal astrology is about more than your sign?  For example, when you say, "I'm a Taurus," you're referring to your Sun sign - only one element of your natal chart (the astrological roadmap of your life).  Most astrologers agree that there are three factors taken together -- "The Big Three" or Sun, Moon, and Rising -- that accurately describe the personality of an individual.

In this session, led by Colleen from Colleen Marie Healing, we’ll dive into the basics of the Zodiac and Natal Chart Wheel so that you can better understand the significance of the Big Three for yourself and others.  Please come with your birth data (date, location, and precise time of birth), a notebook and pen. (If you don't know your birth time, you can often find it on your birth certificate or by calling the Town Hall where your birth certificate was recorded). 

Registration is helpful for planning purposes, but walk-ins are welcome! Online registration will begin on Monday September 19, 2022. 

This program is generously funded by the Friends of Scituate Town Library. Visit the Friends' Bookstore on the lower level of the library! Proceeds help the Friends fund museum passes and special programs for all ages.

Book summary: "Taking us through a year in Kamchatka, Disappearing Earth enters with astonishing emotional acuity the worlds of a cast of richly drawn characters, all connected by the crime: a witness, a neighbor, a detective, a mother. We are transported to vistas of rugged beauty--densely wooded forests, open expanses of tundra, soaring volcanoes, and the glassy seas that border Japan and Alaska--and into a region as complex as it is alluring, where social and ethnic tensions have long simmered, and where outsiders are often the first to be accused."
 
Copies of the book will be available at the Reference Desk beginning in September.

Music Makers with Ms. Bethany

Drop-in Program for Children Ages 0-5 and Their Caregivers:

Enhance your little one’s love of music during this 30-minute bonding time. Songs, dance, and movement games will excite one’s budding musician. This is a grown-up and child event that uses music to build upon early literacy skills and builds executive functioning skills. 

Ms. Bethany will be handing out pre-packaged, sanitized props for use during her music time. If you would like to bring your own props to use instead, a shaker (egg, bells, maraca...) and a scarf would work well!

This program is generously funded by the Friends of Scituate Town Library.

LIT Community Conversation

The Scituate Town Library and Scituate Together for Representation, Inclusion, Diversity & Equity (STRIDE), invite you to a LIT Conversation, featuring Jamele Adams as facilitator. LIT means Love, Inclusion, and Trust. This is the first in a series of conversations that will take place between October and April on a variety of topics.  Our first conversation will explore the pandemic and its effects on our sense of community: what lessons have we learned? What's the path forward? Is the pandemic truly over? This community conversation will be held in person on October 18 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Scituate Town Library's Community Room. 

For optional reading in advance of the conversation, we offer this piece by Tommy Orange. You can access this short story, printed in the New York Times, from home with your library card. Instructions for reading the Times from home can be found here.

Our conversation agreement is as follows:

-Be curious and listen actively to understand how others' experiences have shaped their perspectives.
-Show respect by suspending judgment; setting aside judgment opens you up to learning from others.
-Note common ground as well as differences. Seek to understand, rather than to persuade. Question your own assumptions and look for new insights.
-Be your authentic self; speak from your own experiences and with sincerity.
-Be purposeful and concise, so that others have time to share.
-Be conscious of your use of body language and nonverbal responses.

Archiving Your Family History: Introduction to Archival Basics

Are you overwhelmed with generations of family photos? Do you need help learning to preserve digital photos and documents? Are you struggling to tell your family's story?  This series, Archiving Your Family History, is for you!  Join us as we welcome Rhonda Chadwick of LenaSalina Legacy Preservation to learn how to select and protect the most important aspects of our family histories with a 21st-century approach to archiving. This program is cumulative and it is strongly encouraged that participants register for all four sessions. If you are interested in attending the digital preservation session on November 5th, it is strongly recommended that you attend the October 22nd sessions. 

10 a.m. - 12 p.m. INTRODUCTION TO ARCHIVAL BASICS: Attendees will walk away knowing where to begin, learn the best location within their homes to store documents, receive a presentation on archival enclosures, and get tips on organizing materials. This lecture acts as an introduction to the other sessions.

2 p.m. - 4 p.m. ORGANIZING YOUR MATERIALS: Genealogists and family historians quickly get overwhelmed with the number of family memorabilia they amass. Learning about the best storage enclosures, environmental controls, and file formats, but if all that material isn't stored properly, access can still be unmanageable or impossible. Using the tried and tested principles archivists use to organize and retrieve massive amounts of information patrons will learn how to create a true archive for their family collections.

This series is generously funded by the Scituate Education Foundation and the Friends of the Scituate Town Library. 

Rhonda Chadwick has master's degrees in both History and Library Science. She has worked at a number of institutions including the Rhode Island Historical Society, Rhode Island School of Design, Brown University, the Sophia Smith Collection at Smith College, and the American Textile History Museum in Lowell, MA. When she was going through grad school she couldn’t help but think that individuals and families would benefit from the knowledge of properly archiving their personal items. Her new mission is to teach people how to use best practices in storing their photographs, documents, and artifacts.  She hopes to inspire people to preserve their documents, create a family legacy and tell their stories and the stories of those who have gone before them.

Music Makers with Ms. Bethany

Drop-in Program for Children Ages 0-5 and Their Caregivers:

Enhance your little one’s love of music during this 30-minute bonding time. Songs, dance, and movement games will excite one’s budding musician. This is a grown-up and child event that uses music to build upon early literacy skills and builds executive functioning skills. 

Ms. Bethany will be handing out pre-packaged, sanitized props for use during her music time. If you would like to bring your own props to use instead, a shaker (egg, bells, maraca...) and a scarf would work well!

This program is generously funded by the Friends of Scituate Town Library.
