WEBINAR: Creating Happy and Healthy Lay-Pro Partnerships

MyJewishCoach.com presents: 2015 Virtual Presentations | Learn Without Leaving Your Desk

Creating Happy and Healthy Lay-Pro Partnerships

If two ropes are tied together, untying one means untying both.

—Vayikra (Leviticus) Rabbah

Jewish organizations rely on staff and volunteers to get their mission accom­plished. Lay leaders are an integral part of any organization—volunteers bring connec­tions, expertise, history, continuity, and (hopefully) enthusiasm to the partnership—and much more. And of course, volunteer and professional partnerships can be both deeply rewarding and tricky at times. This session will help you focusing on what you both want from the work and the relation­ship, as well as offer practical strategies for common challenges.

WEBINAR: Dealing with Difficult Personalities

MyJewishCoach.com presents: 2015 Virtual Presentations | Learn Without Leaving Your Desk

Dealing with Difficult Personalities

Some people are electrifying; they light up a room when they leave.

—Jewish Proverb

In life, you will meet people that you abso­lutely, positively cannot get along with. Stress skyrockets, frustration mounts, and productivity plummets. No matter what you try, you just can’t seem to get on the same page. Sometimes these conflicts are based on personality differences and other times they’re due to different work methods or values. But here’s a new perspective: If someone is difficult for you to work with, chances are you are also difficult for them to work with. In this engaging webinar that focuses on your real relationships, you’ll learn that while you can’t always pick who you work with, you can use healthy strate­gies that will make these relationships less stressful and more successful.

Speaker: Noa Peri-Jensch

Audience: All are welcome

  • $36 for a single webinar for one person
  • $99 for a single webinar for your whole office
