Whether it’s at home, in our careers or personal life, everyone craves success. The question is, how do we get there? There is no one magic pill or secret formula to become an overnight sensation. Success is a product of who you are, what you believe, how you behave, and lots of hard work.

This course provides uniquely Jewish ways of thinking to help you develop a growth mindset, identify and cultivate your signature strengths, deal with your weaknesses, and overcome the obstacles that stand in the way of your success.
