Coaching & Consulting
Successfully moving into the digital age goes far beyond launching a Facebook page and tweeting periodically. Creating a vision and putting it into action requires much more. Darim's coaching and consulting services are designed to fit your needs, skills and capacity, to help you create a vision that is tailored to your mission, then put one foot in front of the other with confidence to make it a reality.
At Darim, we distinguish between coaching and consulting. As a consultant, we work to understand your needs, and recommend solutions and action plans. We can customize presentations and training activities to meet the needs of your staff and lay leadership. In rare cases, we can also provide outsourced assistance to implement such a plan.
As a coach, we function as an expert partner, to help guide you through your own growth and learning to achieve your goals. This includes facilitating discussions to get your team on the same page, with shared (ambitious, yet realistic) goals, assumptions, and a baseline understanding of the landscape in which you're working. Coaching engagements usually start at 4-6 sessions (every other week for 2-3 months), and can often extend to six months or a year with meetings spaced every 2-4 weeks or as needed. Coaching is a great solution for both beginners (we'll hold your hand, and help you do it well), and for more advanced participants who are seeking to deepen their work, expand skills, and/or develop a plan that can engage others in their organization who may not yet be on board.
Both coaching and consulting work can focus on social media tools, skills and strategies, as well we new models of leadership, re-examining programs and mission in a social media powered world, and assessments of the norms and leading practitioners in your field. In most cases we prefer to work with a small team of staff and/or lay leaders from an organization, as we find this group effort translates into greater and more sustainable capacities in the long run. However, we are open to working with individuals as well. Participants will build confidence, skills, strategies, and gain experience with online resources and strategies customized to your specific needs in a friendly and low-pressure manner. Coaching programs are tailored to your goals and are conveniently scheduled through a series of regular phone calls and/or webinar sessions.
Where appropriate, Darim can engage additional expertise (or refer you to them) in specific areas. Our ecosystem includes consultants, coaches, trainers and thought leaders from within the Jewish, non-profit and for-profit fields. Thus, we are able to deliver the most relevant, high quality and useful resources, examples and expertise to you.
Our coaching and consulting clients include synagogues, day schools, Jewish Federations, complementary education programs, central agencies for Jewish education, foundations, social service agencies, and others.
