Human Emotional Resilience Obtainment
The need of the hour
We live in a challenging time, in which human beings face a common global threat, which brings with it anxiety, stress and uncertainty about the future. All of these affect everyday coping and functioning abilities.
Beyond the biological threat, more and more cracks are being discovered in all social structures, in all areas of life: business, social, political, family, etc ...
The core of our beliefs is based on the assumption that the development, preservation and maintenance of interpersonal relationships is the most required commodity in all areas of life in the 21st century.
The approach advocates imparting SOFT SKILLS, related to social skills, communication skills, social intelligence - which gives the organization emotional resilience and the ability to properly steer the work environment to optimal performance.
Combining SOFT SKILLS with professional skills, HARD SKILLS, will result in potential utilization of the employee in particular and of the team as a whole.
The vision as a motive
H.E.R.O (Human Emotional Resilience Obtainment) is a process founded out of exposure to the social revolution that is taking a shape - the S.B.L. approach (Social Behavioral Leadership).
This approach has been implemented for several years in various projects in the Ministry of Education, schools, local authorities, high-tech companies and more. The approach aims to bring about a revolution, emphasizing the need to assimilate an optimal human connection, as the cornerstone of any social/public institution.
The approach is led by Dr. Eli Winokur, Vice President of Gordon College of Education. As part of his research and work in the field of education, he researched the need to build educational / leadership social processes, as a tool to optimize existing relationships in an organization, group or team.
One way to explain what emotional human resilience is - is to explain what it does not mean...
Resilience does not mean that there are no conflicts, we are all human beings who see, think and feel differently. Opinions will always clash, disagreements will always exist, conflicts will always appear as they develop. There is no society without conflict, as stated more than a century ago, by the sociologist and philosopher Georg Zimmel, in his article on this subject. Conflicts and tensions are a founding element of society.
"Human Emotional Resilience" allows us to be stable in the face of plurality of opinions and see them as an advantage. To accept indifferences and diversity between the characters of people - as a substrate for fertilization and to approach challenges and crises - as a springboard for development.
Every company, family, organization, team or group of people should function as an organism just like the human body. The fact that the body has resilience, does not necessarily keep viruses or bacteria away from it - but the internal resilience created between the parts, allows everyone to effectively deal with disorders, malfunctions, while recovering and continuing with the routine of daily activities.
What is human emotional resilience?
Throughout history, the person has had a social relationship based on personal acquaintance with his environment: he knew his neighbors, the grocery store owner, the post office and the bank, his relatives also lived nearby - a situation that gave the person a sense of security and belonging.
In contrast today, most interactions with people are based on the role they play for us, without deep personal acquaintance. Thus human beings became "service providers" and "service recipients." Such relationships tend to be "cold", devoid of personal and warm connection, in which the person feels in the circles of his environment a feeling of alienation.
Look at us, we have built for ourselves a world in which everyone exists in isolation from the others, closed within himself. Depression is conquering the world, the need for sedatives is increasing, the difficulty of coping with social situations is burdensome.
The characteristics of modern life signal that this can not continue like this for ling. Man is a social creature, and when he does not get warm social connections he needs, he lacks a sense of vitality and security, and his functioning is impaired.
Increasing our resilience from now on, depends mainly on strengthening the connections we have with those around us. Even in nature, when molecules are bound together in strong bonds, they are more stable. That is, the bonds give the material greater "internal resilience".
Developing the ability to communicate with others, despite the individuality that pulls in the exact opposite direction, creates a very strong network of connections, that will increase the resilience of each and every one. It provides inner flexibility, crisis management tools and improves adaptability to life changes.
