Because no one is teaching us to cope.

Why do we have to learn only in retrospect how to navigate difficulty? Why we are not being taught, prepared, guided from an early age how to cope when the moment comes, and reality meets us?


Each of us faces challenges, difficulties, pressure, changes that are either forced on or made by choice, and sometimes crisis or tragedy. We all cope in our own way. The question is, how do we cope and react when things do not go according to how we’ve imagined it?

We do our best to control the things that depend on us, and we usually are aware that we do not have control over many things, but knowing in itself does not necessarily help us navigate challenging situations to safety, so we can overcome difficulties in our personal and professional life.

Why do we not always manage to cope quickly and easily compared to others?


Because we are not taught from infancy how to cope when the gap meets us. The gap between how we would like things to happen and how they actually happen. Between how we would like our life to look like and what life looks like in reality. And when reality, life, events, changes, and challenges meet us, and usually taking us by surprise, we react out of stress, we develop anxiety, confusion, become paralyzed, get angry or allow our ego to control us.

Moreover, we live under the misconception that people with high mental immunity are invincible, difficult, tough, uncompromising, or possess superhuman qualities in times of crisis. The truth is mental resilience is not emotional detachment. Resilient people do not lean in their armchair smiling in times of crisis, they make mistakes like everyone else, experience deep crises, get sad and angry, but they show high mental strength and stand on their feet faster than others because they have tools, principles, beliefs, and realistic perceptions about life.

Best of all, mental resilience is not an innate trait! The reason that some of us are more resilience than others is due to the crises and challenges that forced them to get immune and choose to return to full healthy functioning in the shortest possible time.

But it is not necessary, nor desirable, to wait for a stressful moment, for a crisis, for a dramatic change to begin the trial and error to steer ourselves to normal functioning. Improving and developing mental resilience is not nice to have, it is a must-have. 

So how do you prepare in advance? How do you do it?

Workshop Goal

Identification of the individual resilience compound at the individual level and of the group as a team.

Improving the ability to return to functioning as quickly as possible in times of stress, fundamental changes in the work environment and personal life, crisis, stress, or a sad event.

Why me?

I wish someone would have taught, prepared all of us how to deal with changes and crises in life. Perhaps we would have been spared from learning all the principles that I guide today so we could significantly improve our ability to get back on our feet quickly and peacefully following dramatic events in life.

This workshop was written from both my most personal and professional place. This is not a workshop, tools, or principles that you will find on the Internet, this is my life’s workshop wrapped in a bow from my deepest place for “tikkun olam,”: Fixing the world.

On the professional level:

For the past seven and a half years and in my last position, I managed the organizational learning at UPPRO. As part of my job, I created and facilitated professional workshops for global company employees. At the same time and privately, over the past decade I have continued to lecture in Israel and abroad, in Hebrew but mainly in English, in cooperation with the Dahan Center and Bar-Ilan University.
