What is Resilience?

Resilience is an individual’s capacity to maintain his or her psychological and physiological well-being on an ongoing basis, even after hardship or struggle, or during stressful events.

We all have a level of resilience, however individually we deal with life's ups and downs differently. Everyday we face challenges that test our resilience, such as in work, in your personal life, raising children, financial troubles or divorce. Are you equipped for these changes?

Understanding why we feel a particular way is the basis for unlocking our own internal coping strategies. In a working context this translates to everything from attitude to communication to performance. Events both inside and outside work affect everyone.


What is The Resilience Factor?

We measure resilience.


The Human Condition is made up of four pillars: Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual. We have developed a method for measuring the resilience 'baseline' for each person across these pillars.


Unlike other scoring tools,  personality tests or psychometric tests our approach takes a snapshot at a point in time to understand how you are. This is your starting point to overcome common issues, such as anxiety, stress, poor or reduced performance, absence, depression or loss of confidence.

The Resilience Factor was founded on the key principle that resilience can be taught to anyone who is willing to take control and improve their lives now and in the future.

The 4 pillars (Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual) all require support and development. See how we apply this below.


The neuroscience says:


A state of physical well-being is not just the absence of disease. It includes lifestyle behaviour choices to ensure health, avoid preventable diseases and conditions, and to live in a balanced state.


This means:

"What condition you're in, everything from the absence of disease to fitness level"


The neuroscience says:

A state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.


This means:

"It's all about how we think"


The neuroscience says:

Emotional health is a state of positive psychological functioning. It can be thought of as an extension of mental health; it's the "optimal functioning" end of the thoughts, feelings, and behaviours that make up both our inner and outer worlds. It includes an overall experience of wellness in what we think, feel, and do through both the highs and lows of life.


This means:

"It's awareness of your emotions and the ability to manage and express those feelings"


The neuroscience says:

Spiritual health is a state of being where an individual is able to deal with day-to-day life in a manner which leads to the realisation of one’s full potential, meaning and purpose of life and happiness from within.


This means:

"Your purpose and personal growth that determines your happiness"
