Men Let’s Talk

Our work is winding down or changing and our children have moved on. Our thoughts now center on the options associated

with growing older. Transitions challenge us, and grappling with them becomes the “inner work” of life. This four week men’s discussion group is a time to talk, to listen, and to share stories and experiences in a safe, no obligation environment. It’s a time to learn, and a time to continue to grow as we look at the years ahead.

Instructor Ron Browne is a seasoned group leader, teacher and speaker in the areas of lifelong learning, creativity, wellness and spirituality. He has been active for many years in promoting meaningful personal change and his experience leading men’s discussion groups has opened new possibilities for men in the second half of life. Ron is the former director for the Cleveland Foundation funded lifelong learning project What’s Next! and former Vice President of Smart Living for Judson at University Circle.

How Success Thinks

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. Nobody can do the work for you, but Jewish wisdom and positive psychology has much to offer to set you on the road to becoming the effective person you crave to be. 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. This Course is Accredited for Medical and Mental Health Professionals
