The Jewish Federation of Greater Phoenix is pleased to announce the graduating members of its 2019 Yesod Leadership Program.
Eleven community members of all ages completed 24 hours of course work and training over eight weeks as part of the Federation’s leadership development program.
“One of the biggest things Yesod did for me was making me realize that it’s OK to be vulnerable or not be perfect at something in a leadership position. What’s most important is that you put in the effort and if you’re vulnerable, that sometimes bring people closer to you, to trust you and believe in you as a real person. It has motivated me to be more of a leader,” said Yoni Harris, Yesod participant.
The Yesod curriculum, developed through the Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning and written by Dr. Erica Brown, offers insights into personal and organizational leadership through Jewish perspective. Course content merges Jewish text study, business skills, leadership theory and experiential application.
“This was my second year facilitating a fantastic group of individuals who were eager to learn what true leadership looks like and to take their new skills out into our community for the betterment of us all,” said Marty Haberer, president and CEO of the Federation. “I am so proud of them and excited to see what they accomplish.”
Applications for the class of 2020 will open November. For further information, contact 480-481-7028 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
