People and organizations are more interested in resilience now than ever before and there is wide-spread recognition that resilience is something that can be targeted and developed.
How do people get to be resilient?
There are a number of factors that can contribute to a person’s resiliency level (e.g., childhood experiences, environmental factors). The primary psychological factor that contributes to people’s resiliency is their hardiness level. Hardiness is a generalized mode of functioning that influences how people interpret the world and make sense of their experiences.
If you are high in resilience, you are high in hardiness.
Hardiness is a set of psychological qualities that characterize people who continue to perform well under stressful conditions, and it is a factor of resilience.
Hardy individuals have fewer life, work, and interpersonal stressors; have more adaptive coping skills; display flexibility and adaptability in most situations; have more life satisfaction, personal growth, engagement, and happiness; perform better when faced with stress and are more effective leaders.
The Hardiness Resilience Gauge™ (HRG™) can be used with individuals, groups, organizations, and in applied settings to facilitate development of the key qualities that are crucial for fostering resilient responses in stressful and changing circumstances.
The HRG™, formally known as the Dispositional Resilience Scale (DRS), is grounded in over 30 years of research and has a long history of successful use with various groups, including employees and leaders within organizations, military personnel, law enforcement, healthcare personnel, students, and athletes. Unequivocally, research has demonstrated that people who are higher in hardiness are more resilient and less likely to experience the detrimental effects of stress.
People’s hardiness levels determine how they react and respond to stressful and unexpected situations. There are three components that make up a person’s hardiness level:
- Challenge: seeing change and new experiences as exciting opportunities to learn and develop
- Control: belief in one’s ability to control or influence events and outcomes
- Commitment: a tendency to see the world and day-to-day activities as interesting, meaningful, and having purpose
The HRG™ can assist in better understanding one’s generalized style of functioning that encompasses cognitive (thinking), emotional (feeling), and behavioural (acting) qualities that are instrumental for predicting how resilient an individual will be.
The HRG is a scientifically rigorous tool that demonstrates exceptional reliability and validity.
