  • Experimentation and Enduring Lessons

(Character Traits: Resilience and Curiosity)

Our current environment has forced us to be creative. How do we harness our new openness to experimentation? What do we hold on to and what should we let go of? What did you learn that you can share with others? What will be sustainable in the future?

  • Managing Today While Envisioning the Future

(Character Traits: Wisdom and Balance)

There are so many pressing issues in our world today, that require our attention.  How do we properly meet this moment while creating a vision for the future? We are clearly “in between.” How can we continue to stay focused on pressing needs while also preparing for what comes down the line 6 months or even a year from now?

ARE YOU COMFORTABLE BEING UNCOMFORTABLE? (e-Jewish Philanthropy article)

Are you, like me, feeling at a loss for words these days?
These lines from the poem Riveted by Robyn Sarah, seem to say it:

It is possible that things will not get better

than they are now, or have been known to be.

It is possible that we are past the middle now.

It is possible that we have crossed the great water

without knowing it, and stand now on the other side.

Yes: I think that we have crossed it. Now

we are being given tickets, and they are not

tickets to the show we had been thinking of,

but to a different show, clearly inferior.

Seems fair to say we are all in a different show now, not at all the one we had planned or hoped for…

Zoom meeting ID will be provided in your registration confirmation.

All programs are open to staff of all backgrounds and professional roles.
