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.

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

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