What is YOUACO - little bit about us and our method

The story of Raanan and YOUACO

My name is Raanan Haas, an occupational psychologist with decades of experience, former head of the social division of the Association of Psychologists, the developer of the methodology of YOUACO and "A man of the sea in all my essence. I discovered the wonders of the sea during my military service as an officer in the Navy, and ever since, the sea has been a call to the journey for me. When I go on a cruise, I know exactly where I want to go. I don't let the waves sweep me away and the wind carry me everywhere... I direct the ship with a confident hand, even in the face of the inevitable turbulence of the road. What gives me the will and the determination to move forward is the clear inner knowledge - what awaits me at the end of the journey". "I believe that each person has his own sea. and a goal that calls it". We have not come here to let life pass by us, or, alternatively, to let others dictate our lives, without recognizing within ourselves the true purpose for which we are here. We have the right to live our life to the maximum, but in today's reality, it is very easy to get carried away and get lost. We are inundated with a variety of tips. Plenty of career and study opportunities. Seductive slogans concocted by the best marketing minds. How do you decide?? When it comes to your future, there are mistakes that you cannot afford to make. for this we have developed YOUACO – an innovative psychological system that will help you understand what triggers you, what makes you good in life and where you should direct yourself. YOUACO takes out of the equation all the background noise – the whirl wind of social pressure, the sex background and cultural biases and the influence of the cold interests of the representatives of the various educational institutions. When all these noises are neutralized, what remains is - you. Who you came to this world to be. YOUACO not only shows you the destination on the map, but also directs you to it. With the help of the compass that YOUACO gives you, you know - not guessing, but you know - what are the possibilities of studies and careers that will open the door to an exciting life, a life in which you will realize your strengths and act out of internal fire.

How did the idea to establish YOUACO come about?

As a parent of teenagers, I witnessed firsthand the feelings of stress and confusion that flooded my children after they were finished high school. The "hot" topic at home was critical questions that kept my children and their friends busy non-stop – what am I going to do? What is right for me? And what will happen next? as a psychologist and as a father I realized that my way of really helping those I love, is to create a tool that will allow my children to get to know themselves better; A psychological tool that will help them make the right decision at the very beginning. The challenge was to take the rich experience I gained as an occupational psychologist, harness the power of technology and create an accessible online diagnostic tool, which will be available to anyone who wants to create their future and enjoy the incredibly accurate prediction ability offered by the psychology industry. After 5 years of development – we met this challenge and created a system that we are proud of, a system that to this day has given targeted answers to tens of thousands of users. We developed YOUACO because we care about you; Because it is important to us that you make the right choice. It's your turn! 😊
