Many people in a student union/society need to be able to do certain things that help the Union/Society function. These things include arranging things, doing publicity and marketing, planning, working as part of a team, public speaking, running meetings, and many other things.
Designing training is a three stage process. First issues surrounding the kind of training needs to be decided upon. Secondly the form of training needs to be fixed. Lastly the content of the training needs to be set.
If you control your time, you control your life. Time is a precious commodity; everyone gets an equal share but we use it very differently. Jewish student activists have to fit many time-consuming tasks into schedules that are also full of learning, socializing, and often doing part-time work. For this reason, good time management - or more appropriately self-management (as it is oneself that is actually managed) is critical for anybody involved in Jewish leadership at university.
Success = Succession!! All too often in Jewish student organisations, a very strong leader makes absolutely no attempt to ensure that their successor is capable of carrying on the good work. This means that what is built one year is destroyed the next. No progress is made. Long term improvements are impossible. A year of good quality hard work is wasted, because not enough attention was paid to the question of succession.
