I built the path of my life in small steps - from Kiryat Hayim in the West Bank, a workers' town, an idealistic home, strong values of human love, love of the land, and hard work and faith in success to combat service in the IDF's Nahal Unit, Hebrew University and a new life.
I first started to use counseling methods in my role as an Israeli Air Force (IAF) organizational consultant. I worked for a number of years in the Ramon base in the Negev and the Tel Nof base. Then for six years I headed the IAF's advisory system, a role that combined management of the entire counseling system with personal counseling for the commanders of the air force and the entire army. It was at this point in my work that I began to understand that consulting must be comprehensive, systemic, multidisciplinary and comprehensive. In this spirit, I founded Shmulik Ravid Ltd.
I bring to the company my vast knowledge and extensive experience in strategic, organizational and personal consulting to the various organizational levels. I have experience with all levels of workers, senior management and boards of directors as well as familiarity with all aspects of the economy.

I believe that the foundations for excellent advice are:
I believe that excellent consulting is always innovative and up-to-date. Excellent consulting is the ability to translate knowledge into the action of performing practical work and making adjustments to the organization and environment in which we operate. I believe that professionalism is a combination of impressive professional ability with a client-oriented approach that is attentive, understanding of needs, and able to connect to the human, rational and emotional dimensions of the client.
- Connecting with the Client
I believe in a personal approach. Successful consulting is based on an ability to understand the client's needs and personality. This thorough and accurate understanding of the client enables delivery of a solution that is custom tailored, and thus can be adopted, augmented and implemented by the client.
I believe that counseling is a process of mutual learning. The vast knowledge that my colleagues and I bring to the company derives from our clients. We learn from each client and bring the accumulated experience to each organization. The learning process is mutual and is the basis of excellent counseling. The test of good consultation as well as good management is what you leave behind you.
I believe in change, constant movement, and innovation. An excellent consultative process must lead to movement. As consultants, we are always aware of changes in the business environment and consciousness, which require change on the personal and professional level. I believe in John Maynard Keynes' statement: "The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from old ones."
