Session 5 - The Volunteer Staff Partnership Plan

On Wednesday, May 30, 2012, Kathy Elias, chief kehilla officer; Rabbi Charles Savenor, director of kehilla enrichment; and Robert Leventhal, USCJ's new leadership specialist, presented the fifth webinar of Sulam for Current Leaders (SCL), “The Volunteer Staff Partnership Plan”. Over 75 kehilla (congregational) leaders from around North America participated in this interactive webinar experience.

This webinar focused on how board members, clergy and staff can learn how to:

  • Define the unique roles and responsibilities of boards, clergy and staff
  • Create effective lines of communication
  • Approach performance reviews
  • Develop a culture of mutual appreciation

This webinar is a training session for facilitators and kehilla leaders who will implement the workshop in their own local kehillot. While designed as a part of a series, this session – and all of the SCL workshops – can be ran as a one-time, stand-alone leadership development training program.

Building upon the “The Delegation Plan” and “The Accountability Plan” webinars (SCL sessions 3 and 4), this session is designed to help lay leaders, clergy and staff create covenantal relationships that emphasize shared vision, shared goals, effective communication and ongoing mutual review.

You are invited to listen to and view the webinar here.

The components for the session are found below.

What people are saying about Sulam for Current Leaders webinars:

“Sulam for Current Leaders helped me generate interest and enthusiasm from individuals who might not have otherwise been at a point of seeking greater involvement. The highlight moments for me personally come outside the seminars, hearing discussions with the board based on something that came up through the seminars.” - David Reifler MD, IPP, Congregation Ahavas Israel, Grand Rapids, MI

Please contact your local kehilla relationship manager (KRM) or Bob Leventhal with any questions or suggestions that you may have about these SCL materials. We can be reached at 212-533-7800 or kehilla@uscj.org.
