Resilience Questionnaire

Thank you for taking the time to complete our online questionnaire. We have identified through extensive research that there are 18 characteristics or personality traits that make up resilience. You will be guided through a series of 25 questions which will explore your level of resilience in these areas.

To make a start, simply fill in your details and work through the questions - answering as accurately and honestly as you can. Try to pick the answer which best describes your current situation, rather than where you have been in the past or where you would like to be in the future.

When you submit the completed questionnaire we will email you a detailed assessment of your current level of resilience, complete with some key strategies for further development. On receipt of your report, you may wish to start looking at the characteristic identified as in most need of development, and follow the suggestions for improvement. If, once you have implemented the sugestions, you find that your resilience is still low in this area you may wish to contact us to find out how we might be able to support. You may also wish to check back in after 3 months and re-take the test to see if your resilience levels have improved.
