I believe that the most successful Jewish professional leaders are those with a high degree of emotional intelligence. The Little Book of Big Ideas for Jewish Professionals provides very practical ways for us and our colleagues to be intentional about how we can channel these natural characteristics. This straightforward book helps to frame what and how we navigate our stakeholder relationships so that they can be positive and achieve the results we are seeking. Kol Hakavod to the MyJewishCoach team for tuning into the daily work of our Jewish professionals and for providing us with such a great roadmap that will lead us to being more satisfied, fulfilled and successful.

Hillel International

My first reaction after reading The Little Book of Big Ideas for Jewish Professionals was ‘It’s about time someone wrote this book!’ The MyJewishCoach team nailed it! Nothing in this book is complicated. It provides straightforward, easy reading on how to build on your inner leadership skills. This book is a must read for all Jewish Communal professionals no matter what level or years of experience.

I wish this book had been in print when I had started my career in Jewish communal service. After a few pages of reading I gave up highlighting each and every sentence and realized that the entire book is a highlight. Working for a Jewish organization requires so much of us, in a way that is unique to the nonprofit world, and this book is one of the most useful, and engaging, resources for the beginner and advanced professional alike. I’m so glad that this resource is now available.

 Dov Ben-Shimon, CEO, The Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest, NJ

How did the authors fit so many important subjects into such a small book? I can’t wait to share this book with JPro St. Louis colleagues so that we can utilize this practical wisdom and maximize the impact on each staff person – from using the book as a gift to new staff to planning a series around each chapter with the goal to elevate professionalism and enhance job satisfaction. Once again, the MyJewishCoach team comes through with big ideas in a small package.

The path to effective leadership is often hard to navigate and, even worse, filled with obstacles. The Little Book of Big Ideas for Jewish Volunteers is a much-needed road map for volunteers and their professional partners to manage change, face conflict head-on, and spread the gospel about their organization’s unique mission and vision. While it’s rare to find such a large helping of wisdom, insight and common-sense solutions in such a little tome, the MyJewishCoach Team’s new book shares her experience and expertise in an effective and enjoyable way!

-Rabbi Charles Savenor, Director of Congregational Education,
Park Avenue Synagogue, New York, NY

I found myself nodding in agreement at virtually every page in this easy, yet helpful read.   All of us involved in the wide range of organizations across our Jewish community will benefit from these practical tips and from the strengthened volunteer-professional partnership which will result.  Well done!

 Jeremy J. Fingerman, Chief Executive Officer
Foundation for Jewish Camp

With these two books, the MyJewishCoach team has added a handy resource for the toolbox of those of us working or volunteering in Jewish nonprofits. These books tie together core Jewish values, best practices of nonprofit leadership, and practical ideas for how to thrive as a professional or volunteer in Jewish (and for that matter any) organizations. While written in a user-friendly, easy-to-read style, the books are grounded in solid research in all aspects of nonprofit leadership and management. Both the novice and veteran of volunteer agencies will find a treasure of useful guidelines the authors provide highlights of the coaching and training work they do in these volumes.

 Rabbi Arnold D. Samlan, MSW, Executive Director, Center for the Advancement of Jewish Education, Miami

This advice is wise, grounded and extremely useful. Like Jewish tradition itself, it is always good to be reminded of best practice – and to aspire to it.

 Nigel Savage, President, Hazon

Money Talks: 100 Strategies for Tricky Conversations About Money

Almost any topic feels safer, saner, and more secure than talking about money. Who wants to discuss salary increases, investing, planning for retirement, or deciding whether your “home again” college grad should pay rent? Not only do conversations about money evoke complicated emotions, these discussions often reveal the need for secondary talks about future plans, critical decisions, competing priorities, unspoken needs, and core values. Many of us feel unprepared and uncomfortable going into the first talk; the possibility of even more conversations can cause us to double down on our fear and walk away.

Think of Money Talks as your personal coach for tough financial conversations. Written by ten “Money Mavens” (all of whom provide their personal contact information for follow up) this book includes sections devoted to having conversations with family members from kids to aging parents, discussing money with your boss or direct report, and a special chapter full of confidence-boosting advice for women, who suffer money-talk anxiety more than men. Each chapter breaks down complicated and emotional conversations into practical, concrete strategies. Some chapters even include scripts to get you started when you have no idea what to say or how to say it. Can’t you feel your stress going down and your confidence going up already? With this book at your side, when it comes to talking about money, you’ll never be left speechless again.

$9.99 Kindle Version

$15.00 Hard Cover Edition

In my many decades of teaching negotiation, I have seen the concerns addressed by Money Talks high on the list of areas where students of all ages feel a lack of comfort and competence, whether they are dealing with parents, children, bosses, subordinates, clients, customers and themselves. Money Talks addresses the problems of communicating about money from all of these many points of view, and provides useful, realistic, and practical advice. While the focus is on money, much of the advice here applies to so many of our difficult conversations. You will be frequently sharing this book with family, friends, and co-workers.
