Over the course of your life, are you being taught WHAT to think, or are you learning HOW to think? And what is the difference between the what and the how?
Almost everyone is familiar with one of the most popular best-selling self help books titled, How to Make Friends and Influence People. Let’s focus on the word influence. We can influence people, inspire people, teach people and even educate people – but above all we can EMPOWER people. Empowerment is in a league of its own. Empowering is teaching methodology, not just facts and data. Tools how to think and how to solve problems; not just giving answers but teaching how to find the answers yourself.
Please join Rabbi Simon Jacobson for this vital conversation on the secret to empowering your friends, family and colleagues to navigate whatever comes their way. “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” That is empowerment.
