Resilience Can Be Learned

Resilience is a blend of personal characteristics, experience and learned behaviors.

These components of resilience influence how you interpret the world and make sense of your experiences. And in turn, this determines how you react and respond to stressful and unexpected situations.

We believe leaders who activate their resilience are the most agile, prepared and responsive leaders. We have spent decades unlocking potential and preparing resilient leaders. We understand what it takes.

We use a proven formula to develop high performance teams and leaders. That formula includes assessments.  Taking assessments to learn about your strengths is a critical step to develop the self-awareness one needs to unlock potential.

One of our favorite assessments is the HRG Resilience Gauge.

The HRG assessment will give you a general indication of how resilient you are; how well you respond when faced with stressful circumstances.

Your score reflects how you process and respond to change, how strongly you believe you can control or influence outcomes, and your tendency to see your world and day-to-day activities as interesting, meaningful, and with purpose.

Each of these components facilitate a flexible, confident, and passionate approach to work and life, ensuring a resilient response to a range of stressful conditions.
