Leadership and Advocacy is one of the top-level categories in the Professional Knowledge and Skills Base (PKSB). It involves providing active leadership by inspiring and managing themselves and teams, both inside and outside the organisation and by promoting the positive value of library, information and knowledge services across the organisation and society. Includes leading and inspiring teams, influencing key stakeholders and understanding external frameworks.
The PKSB is your map of the knowledge and skills in the library, information and knowledge professions. Use it as a self-assessment tool for professional development and to demonstrate your unique skill set to employers. It is also a framework for skills analysis, staff training and development plans.
