The Association of Research Libraries published an article of mine in the August 6th issue of Research Library Issues: (http://publications.arl.org/2doui0.pdf). This article is primarily about work/life balance and finding ways to “have it all”. Here is an excerpt:
Focus initial energies and attention on people who will help you succeed. When you come into a new position, 20% of your new staff will support you whatever you do, a few will oppose you whatever you do, and the rest will watch to see who prevails. Focus your initial efforts on the 20% and address the resisters later. In time, you may create a tsunami that sweeps resisters along. Or make them stand out in bold relief. That is the time to take them on.
