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: Creating a Culture of Trust

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

Creating a Culture of Trust

Trust is the lubrication that makes organizations work.

—Warren Bennis

Employee longevity is directly related to a trusting relationship between supervisor and employee. Trust is critical—but it is espe­cially critical when we work for organiza­tions that are responsible for upholding the communal trust as well. It’s easy to build trust, but almost impossible to repair it when it’s broken. In this interactive webinar, you’ll learn what research tells us about the behaviors and attitudes that inspire or erode trust, how to address behaviors in others that violate trust, and how to take small but meaningful steps to build and maintain trust with your professional and volunteer part­ners, donors, members, and the public.

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.

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: 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.

Speaker: Noa Peri-Jensch

Audience: All are welcome
