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.

Speaker: Deborah Grayson Riegel

Audience: All are welcome

Cost:

  • $36 for a single webinar for one person

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

Cost:

  • $36 for a single webinar for one person
  • $99 for a single webinar for your whole office
  • $493 for the whole series for your entire organization (*$100 savings)
