There is no substitute for the electricity that is felt in the room as Rick energizes each and every participant. Our members came away feeling empowered and feeling that they were capable of doing more and reaching higher than they had ever imagined – Edward Edelstein, Executive Director, Jewish Educators Assembly


Rick Recht offers custom coaching sessions via Skype or in-person for individuals and groups who want to accelerate growth, learn more, design strategic plans for growth, and receive feedback and guidance throughout implementation.

Offering our staff the chance to participate in this exceptional leadership development workshop elevated our educational program to the next level.  The workshop was spirited and had teachers and madrichim considering their own practice and how to incorporate ideas to maximize their presence in the classroom. – Kim Bodmer, Director of Education Temple Chayai Shalom
