On September 5, 2018,
Tomer Oshry, a graduate of Cohort 19 of the Mandel School for Educational Leadership and director of the Erez network of pre-military programs, held a meeting for the network’s senior staff in collaboration with the Mandel Graduate Unit.
The meeting was designed to serve as a launch event at which Oshry could present his conceptual approach, introduce new discourse and messages, and begin the process of creating an organizational vision for the Erez network of pre-military academies.
During the session, the network's staff members became better acquainted with one another, discussed the process of creating a vision and shared work mechanisms, thought together about interfaces and partnerships, and spoke about instituting regular learning and sharing sessions.
The process used at the meeting was based on the Mandel leadership approach, with a focus on developing personal vision into an organizational vision, and on the dialogue between the two.
