Peer Consulting Pods for Managers

Andy Cahill and Krish Jaiman of KONU

Let’s face it: being a manager is hard! (Or at least it can be.) You’re navigating competing priorities, uncertainty, and sticky challenges – all while feeling the pressure to please everyone and solve problems quickly. Sometimes, it feels impossible to step away from the day-to-day, think and feel more clearly, and make intentional and strategic moves.  

Peer Consulting Pods for Managers offer a unique opportunity to come together with fellow managers from across the Jewish nonprofit sector to learn and practice a well-tested and adaptable peer consultation protocol.  Peer Consulting Pods provide a space for managers to address their challenges head- and heart-on while also evolving their mindsets, making it more likely that the skills, tools, and frameworks will "stick".

So, how do Peer Consulting Pods work?  

  • In the two-hour kickoff session on November 13, KONU instructors will teach you a peer consultation protocol, developing your capacity for listening deeply, asking powerful questions, diagnosing challenges thoroughly, and generating creative action possibilities – critical skills for managers in today’s fast-paced world. 
  • After the kickoff session, you will be placed in a Peer Pod of 5-7 supervisors from Jewish nonprofit organizations across North America, building a community for practicing your new skills among supportive peers. 
  • Your Peer Pod will meet for three self-facilitated sessions using the peer consultation protocol guide. Participants will each bring a real-life management challenge to get support from their peers, and, in turn, practice holding a coaching stance for others to help these new skills stick.   
  • As a result of engaging in this process, participants will make progress on a management challenge they’re facing and also leave with a peer consultation protocol that will serve as a vital tool in their future management practices. 

This course is for you if you: 

  • Currently manage at least one direct report at your organization 
  • Wish to learn a procedure that can help facilitate more productive and effective conversations within your management practice 
  • Experience management-related challenges that could benefit from the insight of your peers 
  • Want to connect and network with other managers from across the Jewish nonprofit sector
