Selah Leadership Program Testimonials

Since participating in Selah, I have begun a regular practice of rest and reflection. This practice has made my social change work more sustainable.

-Quito Ziegler, Cohort 2: East Coast

I am grateful to have participated in Selah and came away with an arsenal of good tools. I particularly valued the introduction to Mussar as well as the wonderful people I met.

-Sharon Gelman, Cohort 6: Los Angeles

Selah has equipped me with the tools, concepts and language that have just begun to deepen my skills and ownership of my leadership and personal power for the benefit of my community. Executive leadership is incredibly demanding and Selah has bolstered my ability and confidence to more effectively address the challenges I encounter in my work.

-April Baskin, Cohort 10: National


Who ever thought being pushed to acknowledge the full complement of my strengths and my obstacles to success could be so rewarding and so enjoyable! The relationships I have built in Selah have proved invaluable, personally and professionally.

-Elissa Barrett, Cohort 5: National and Cohort 7: Organizational

The core pillars of Selah -- Purpose, Vision, Resourcefulness, Partnership, and Performance -- have become my organizational life blood. I use the teachings of each of these pillars in everything that I do, whether it be motivating staff, writing performance evaluations, public speaking, or fundraising.
