Leadership Journey Series

January 27th, 2021 at 10:00 am - 11:30 am EST
Cohort Meeting

How can we continue to exert leadership in unpredictable times? What questions should we be asking at our institutions? Who should we be partnering with? What vision do we want to set?

Join a small group of education directors from the New York catchment area as we use modern leadership theories to help us answer these questions and more for each of our institutions. We will meet each month for a 90-minute working webinar and then again for small group coaching to continue to concretize the concepts and learn from each other. Webinars and group coaching will be co-facilitated by Rabbi Jennifer Goldsmith and Micol Zimmerman.
