Build Hardy, More Resilient Leaders and Teams with the Hardiness Resilience Gauge™
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.
Hardy leaders are effective leaders. Leaders who are higher in hardiness are more likely to take on a leadership style in which they motivate, support, and set clear expectations for their team members. Hardy leaders are able to perform effectively in stressful situations and are more likely to facilitate a sense of cohesion within their teams. Leaders are in the unique position of being able to influence the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors of people within their teams.
The Hardiness Resilience Gauge™ (HRG™) is grounded in over 30 years of research and development and provides valuable insight into an individual’s level of hardiness and their ability to cope with stressful and unexpected situations. Research has documented the protective nature of hardiness – 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.
The Hardiness Resilience Gauge™ is used globally and has a long history of successful use with various groups, including employees and leaders within organizations, military personnel, law enforcement, healthcare personnel, students, and athletes. Leaders who cultivate characteristics of hardiness have more cohesive teams that are better able to adapt to stress and adversity and are more resilient to change.
