Improve your resilience

Robertson Cooper: i-resilience

Over 130,000 people have already started developing their resilience...

The 4 areas of resilienceOnce we reach adulthood, our personalities remain relatively stable. However, our levels of resilience can vary considerably. Fortunately, everyone has the ability to build and maintain their levels of resilience. That’s why we created i-resilience! The i-resilience report and online resources are the first set of integrated resilience tools available that are completely free to use, both for you and your entire organisation.

Using our validated personality questionnaire and based on the responses, the i-resilience report reveals which of the four key components users naturally draw on for resilience - confidence, adaptability, purposefulness and the need for social support.

How does it work?

i-resilience provides a comprehensive understanding of personal resilience and gives examples of how this could impact on users responses to demanding work situations. The personal i-resilience report allows users to build on existing areas of strength, and also allows them to manage any potential areas of risk. The i-resilience portal then allows users to develop their resilience in line with the results of their report.

This is frighteningly accurate - it has captured my personality perfectly.The situations they give you towards the end of the report where they show how your personality will help or hinder you is also an excellent learning tool

The resilience questionnaire was a really useful aid, and allowed me to understand my strengths, potential weaknesses and how these personality traits can affect my ability to perform. The questionnaire was easy to use, accessible and accurate. I recommend anyone in the professional working world giving the survey a try to obtain the helpful feedback that is given.
