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: Creating LGBT-inclusive and LGBT-themed Programs

Please note: All webinars are scheduled on Eastern Standard Time.

Target audience: adult and youth program professionals

Description: In this interactive webinar, adult and youth program professionals will bring their voices into the room by sharing their hopes and concerns about programming that is inclusive of LGBT individuals and their families. During our conversation, we will discuss the behaviors and ways of thinking that sometimes unintentionally create programs that exclude LGBT individuals, or make them feel unwelcome; we will also reflect upon our shared Jewish values that implore us to insure that our programming is inclusive to all members. Adult and youth program professionals will leave the conversation with ideas for age appropriate activities/ programs to implement in their own communities that are inclusive of LGBT individuals and that speak directly to their wants and needs.
