Successful committee-work, like successful teaching, is about knowing when to shut up, calm down, or absent yourself entirely if that’s what the situation demands. It’s the art of not getting in the way, especially when you’re in the middle of a collective process that will move along perfectly well without you. When I was speaking at this event, I briefly referred to the need for librarians and learning support folks to collaborate more. The next day I found myself scheduled for a meeting with about 10 other people, including two people from my own department, to work on a supercharged annotated bibliography project. Later that day, when I went to our end-of-the week wind-down session, we all realized that no one could name the director of the Leadership program at our college. No one was that concerned.
