What is the Resilience Diagnostic?

The Resilience Diagnostic is an assessment tool that provides comprehensive insights across multiple dimensions of human resilience, including mental fitness, well-being, emotional intelligence, cognitive skills, and high performance. Individuals receive a rich, interactive report featuring action plans, traffic light signals, and comprehensive resource libraries. HR executives and leaders receive reports highlighting the strengths and risks across the team, with custom reporting categories and benchmarking capability.

The Resilience Diagnostic was launched in 2008 and has been used by organizations globally to measure, map and benchmark resilience competencies across their teams. The ability to measure resilience provides a blueprint for Precision Training programs.

Why measure resilience?

Resilience is critical to organizational growth, agility, and employee engagement.

  • A study published in the Journal of Occupational Health Psychology found that employees with higher levels of resilience were more engaged in their work, had higher job satisfaction, and experienced less job stress than employees with lower levels of resilience.
  • Another study published in the Journal of Applied Psychology found that employees who underwent resilience training showed improvements in their job performance, job satisfaction, and psychological well-being.
  • A study published in the Journal of Organizational Behavior found that resilient employees were less likely to engage in counterproductive work behaviors, such as absenteeism and workplace deviance.

The Resilience Diagnostic is the world's leading toolkit for measuring human resilience and enabling informed leadership decision-making. Just as leaders measure employee engagement, it is critical to measure resilience: the capacity for individuals and teams to bounce, grow, connect and flow.
