WEBINAR: Work-Life Balance for Jewish Professionals and Leaders

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

Work-Life Balance for Jewish Professionals and Leaders

If you don’t want to burn out, stop living like you’re on fire.

—Brené Brown

There was a time when work stayed at work and home stayed at home, and it was a rare occurrence when the two of them would meet. Today, they don’t just meet—they col­lide! The boundaries between when and where we do our work and when and where we get involved in “life”—family, friends, activities, etc.—is blurry for most of us. On one hand, it can make things convenient. On the other hand, these blurred lines rarely give us the opportunity to turn ourselves “off.” Whether you observe the Sabbath and are “only” available “24/6,” or you observe some other time or way to power down, this session will give you concrete strategies to avoid burnout.

WEBINAR: Managing Change

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

Managing Change

Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future.

—John F. Kennedy

By definition, change is a process through which something becomes different. As Jewish organizations look toward the future, they will need to plan and prepare for changes in mission, vision, stakeholders, funders, supporters, allies, and more. This can cause anxiety, pain and resistance—and renewed energy, engagement, and commit­ment. In this engaging webinar, you’ll learn how to successfully play an active role in the change process, help build public support for the change, or communicate the change to the public. No matter where you sit in your organization, you have an opportunity to help manage the change process with positivity and passion and create an organization and a community that people want to be a part of.

WEBINAR: How to be an Ambassador for Your Organization

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

How to be an Ambassador for Your Organization

I don’t speak because I have the power to speak; I speak because I don’t have the power to remain silent.

—Rabbi A.Y. Kook

Everyone involved with a Jewish organiza­tion is an ambassador—from the mainte­nance staff and the executive director to a hands-on volunteer to the president of the board. Both professionals and volunteers have a tremen­dous and important opportunity to help pro­mote the organization in a positive way and to help maximize its reach, message, and impact. This interactive session will show you some concrete strategies for how to do this.

WEBINAR: Cultivating Positivity at Work

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

Cultivating Positivity at Work

Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.

—Abraham Lincoln

Positivity isn’t just a mindset, it’s a skillset. We can all cultivate positivity through the choices we make, the perspectives we choose, the behaviors we engage in, and the conversations we have (as well as those we avoid). In this session, you’ll learn that while it’s not always easy or practi­cal to look for the silver lining in every situ­ation, there are several attitudes and behaviors you can adopt – today – to help to create and maintain a posi­tive workplace that increases engagement, motivation, ownership, and commitment.
