Mesila Financial Coach Training Webinar FAQ
Please read the entire FAQ to gain clarity and to avoid confusion and misunderstandings.
Mesila is an international movement dedicated to strengthening financial stability in Jewish communities around the world. Mesila combats the various effects of financial instability through educational activities and coaching that empower men, women and children to achieve economic self-sufficiency and stability. With deep understanding of the difficulties of modern living, Mesila plays a key role in shifting attitudes and enabling social change from within.
Mesila has been working successfully with the religious population in Israel for almost two decades, and currently maintains branches throughout the world – Israel, the U.S., U.K. and Europe.
Mesila’s vision is to raise public awareness of the principles of correct financial management and empower every individual and family to make the changes necessary to put them on the path – “Mesila” – towards a serene and peaceful financially independent life.
Mesila’s sophisticated Personal Finance coaching program includes a series of six meetings delivered by a trained coach who helps the client carry out a thorough analysis of their financial situation. Each family is then guided to discover their own solutions, suited to their particular situation and lifestyle, which increases the plan’s chances of success. This program was specially developed by professionals and based on Torah guidelines, and is unique to Mesila.
Our feedback and statistics show that most families emerge from the process with a greater understanding of their finances and how to manage them proactively in the future; clarity on how to live within their means in a healthy and positive way; stronger relationships, less affected by the constant stress of financial struggle and peer pressure; calmer and happier children; and increased financial responsibility. Mesila be”H has a 90% success rate!
Our professional model uses a blend of coaching and counseling – an experiential technique specially tailored to each individual family, with proven results in the field. The course is practical and hands-on, with simulation exercises that will give you the confidence to begin coaching as soon as you conclude the course or even while still attending. Our skilled mentors accompany you when you start out and are there for you all the way through.
Anyone who has the skills and personality to sit with a family and coach them through a fascinating financial journey is a candidate for the course.
Primary requirements include communication and listening skills, organizational skills, sincerity, innovativeness and the firm belief that each family can achieve financial stability Be”H.
