Session 1 - The Leadership Plan
On Tuesday, December 11, 2012, Rabbi Charles Savenor, our director of kehilla enrichment, and Robert Leventhal, leadership specialist, conducted a webinar about first unit of Sulam for Current Leaders (SCL), "The Leadership Plan." This session was designed to explore the power of mission and vision, discover the benefits of a more strategically-minded board and create a Learning Agenda for your board. In addition to revisiting the key components of SCL 1, this webinar introduced our new material, “Step Up!”, which is a 20 minute board exercise. The “Step Up!” presented during this webinar dealt with our new approach to goal setting entitled P.A.C.T. Goals.
A P.A.C.T. Goal provides leaders with a vital tool to honor their volunteer commitments by crafting goals so that they serve the synagogue’s strategic purpose. P.A.C.T. stands for purpose, action, capacity and time. We use the acronym P.A.C.T. since members have a covenantal obligation to honor their commitments. Equally important, P.A.C.T.Goals can help our leaders step up and achieve their potential. The webinar was a training session for facilitators who will implement the session with their kehillot. You are invited to listen to the webinar.
