At a synagogue in West Los Angeles there is a treatment center that approaches addiction as a spiritual malady, Beit T’Shuvah is a residential addiction treatment center that saves lives through a comprehensive program of Jewish spirituality, psychotherapy, and the 12-Steps in a caring, community setting. Harriet Rossetto, the founder, has discovered joy in her mission, “People come in hopeless and filled with self-hatred. Our goal is to offer them a sense of belonging in which they will find their own meaning and purpose.” Miracles happen here.
This is a miracle and it happens here because this is a sanctuary that provides healing and the potential for transformation.
As Rabbi Mark Borovitz puts it, “t'suvah is a Jewish concept that is a daily accounting of my soul...Addiction is driven by perfectionism, so now I don't always get it right but I have a way back through t’suvah."
Produced by David Okimoto and Paul Steinbroner, Producer and Director.

Dr. Jonathan Camp discusses the book A Failure of Nerve by Edwin Friedman, who owes many of his ideas of leadership to Murray Bowen (1913-1990), a pioneer of family therapy. Central to Bowen's family systems theory is the concept of differentiation, or the ability of a person to maintain a strong sense of "self" within the family. The anxious family system is composed of emotional triangles, in which two conflicting members try to diffuse the anxiety between them by bringing in a third member. But this only heightens the anxiety of the system. A well-differentiated person is able to resist the lure of emotional triangles, which causes the family system to mature by influencing others to take responsibility for themselves. In A Failure of Nerve, Friedman applies Bowen's family systems theory to organizational leadership.

What if we were tasked with making a difference, so that our time on this planet leaves it better than we found it? What if we were tasked with making a difference, so that our time on this planet leaves it better than we found it? This thought launched me into a new career as a Legacy Coach working with people who want to make a difference. I researched leaders who champion initiatives that have made a positive impact on the world, hoping to find ways to actively develop a new generation of responsible, purposeful leaders.
I call it the “sustainability mindset in action.” Isabel Rimanoczy’s life purpose is to develop change accelerators. Aware of the complex challenges we and our planet are facing, she works alongside those who can make a large-scale impact. Rimanoczy, Ed.D., developed the Sustainability Mindset, a concept she researched by studying business leaders who champion corporate initiatives with a positive impact on the environment and the community.
She is also the author of several books, including Big Bang Being: Developing the Sustainability Mindset, and has published over 140 articles and book chapters. Rimanoczy blogs for the Huffington Post and has just published her newest book, coedited with Keru Kassal available from Amazon. Click on book icon to order.
How Can We Develop a Generation of Business Leaders Acting for the Common Good? by Isabel Rimanoczy, Failreigh Dickinson University, New Jersey, USA
Published on Youtube by ESSEC Business School, June 14, 2012
When you think about it, does your coursework perpetuate stories of paternalistic dominance by a few? Do you teach how and what you learned? Given our other many responsibilities, do you find it easiest to choose the same books year after year, rather than explore other possibilities? Is your campus facing criticism by students of color that their voices are not being heard? Do you wonder how sustainability might relate to your course? Finally, do you wonder how the previous questions are connected? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you will find this webinar valuable.
Several years ago, I realized I was using textbooks written by older white men of American/European descent who have a particular viewpoint. As examples, many business strategy books use militaristic terms to describe successful tactics to compete in the marketplace and the accounting textbook I use is a newer edition of the same one I used in my studies almost 30 years ago. In this webinar, I share examples of how I now continually rethink my class material and now explore it from two perspectives: what is and what is possible if we question current paradigms. This approach allows me to cover what my colleagues believe must be covered and creates opportunities to offer a more inclusive and broader perspective. You will have the opportunity to brainstorm with others to identify resources and ways to expand coverage in your courses.
