Hardiness Resilience Gauge (HRG) Assessment Certification


Research shows people who are higher in hardiness are less likely to experience the negative effects of stress on health and performance. ­ Those high in hardiness are not invulnerable to stress, but they do not experience the same degree of negative stress-related outcomes as those who are low in hardiness. Leaders who cultivate characteristics of hardiness within their organizations have teams that are better able to adapt to stress and adversity, less likely to suffer from burnout and are more resilient to change.

The Hardiness Resilience Gauge™ (HRG™) measures how effectively a person can cope with stress. The assessment provides a Total Hardiness score in addition to scores measuring three qualities that are instrumental for predicting how resilient an individual will be. These three qualities are:

Hardiness Qualities: Challenge Control Committment

The HRG™ is a versatile tool that can be used in a variety of contexts to provide greater insight into an individual’s ability to effectively deal with stress. Use the assessment tools with leaders and teams, in the workplace, in high-stress occupations, with athletes, and with students.
