Resilience Training Programmes

Resilience is the ability to thrive, personally and professionally, even during times of high pressure, rapid change and adversity. Fortunately, resilience is not a fixed characteristic (like personality), it’s something you can learn and strengthen over time. Thrive offers a comprehensive resilience training programme supported by psychometric profiling, one-to-one coaching and skills-based workshops.

We’re now in our 8th successful year of resilience training!

Our Resilience Programme

7 Elements JPG FINALOur resilience programme is structured around the Seven Elements of Resilience (left) and supported by a new psychometric tool: The Resilience Quotient Inventory (RQi).

Based on over 4 years of research, the RQi™ provides a rapid and accurate measure of resilience for individuals and teams.

The RQi™ is used as a key element of our resilience programmes alongside skills-based workshops, one-to-one coaching (with qualified practitioners), team resilience programmes and on-line learning.

Physiological stress monitoring
