The Resilience Questionnaire

Work | Work Wellbeing | Organisational Development

The Resilience Questionnaire™ focuses on the aspects of an individual’s patterns of thinking, preferences and behaviours that affect their ability to respond positively to setbacks and challenges and suggests ways their resilience can be developed. Resilience refers toan individual’s capacity to adapt to pressure and change in order to achieve and sustain peak personal effectiveness. More resilient individuals have been shown to thrive during challenging times, demonstrate sustainable high performance and manage change more effectively. This questionnaire therefore enables individuals to gain insight into how they are resilient, how they can enhance their resilience further and how they can use these skills at work.
