What does it measure?
Resilience refers to a person’s ability to respond to situations rather than react to them. Resilience is the process of adapting well in the face of change, growth, uncertainty, ambiguity, challenges, tragedy, or even significant stressors from the workplace, finances or relationships. It means “bouncing back” from demanding experiences.
Why is it useful?
People who exhibit high levels of resilience are able to deal with change and adapt to adversity without permanent complications. They are more likely to be an example to others and can see possibilities “of what could be.” They look forward to change and growth, as they feel internally empowered. When they experience periods of uncertainty and ambiguity, they see potential for themselves, their families, teams, and organisations. Due to their high levels of resilience, they are able to provide clarity in uncertain times, and people naturally seek them out for guidance and leadership
People with low levels of resilience find it challenging to deal with change and growth, be it on a personal or professional level. They are disempowered by uncertainty and ambiguity and, eventually, they can start to negatively impact those around them. When people with low levels of resilience encounter uncertainty or ambiguity, they react rather than respond, and subsequently, create greater difficulties for themselves and others.
An individual’s resilience level can change significantly over time. It’s been found that those who invest in their resilience are likely to live more satisfying, empowered lives, both personally and professionally. This profile is designed to help you to create more self-awareness and understand how different parts of your life contribute to your resilience levels, so you may go on to empower yourself and others.
Research indicates that a person’s resilience level fluctuates approximately every 6 months, depending on how much time and energy they are investing into the 8 major categories.
