Then our Hardiness Resilience Gauge Certification course is for you!!

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 cognitive, emotional and behavioral characteristics within individuals and teams. Increased hardiness is also positively correlated to the amount of eff ort people put in at work, their level of job satisfaction and their commitment to the organization.

Challenge, Control, and Commitment

Grounded in extensive research, the HRG focuses on the three C’s – Challenge, Control, and Commitment.

The three C’s of Hardiness represent that those high in hardiness believe they have control over the events they experience, see the world as meaningful and interesting and view challenges as growth opportunities.

Use the HRG to increase an understanding of hardiness in both leaders and team members, and to help them build stronger, more resilient teams.


More Insight!

With the ability to indicate behaviors that are most natural in contrast to those needed or performed in day-to-day life, the Pearman allows you to explore where the differences lie, where the similarities are, and measure what flexibility your client has to operate outside of his or her comfort zone with the Pearman FlexIndex™.

More Flexibility!

To be effective in today’s workforce, your client must be able to adapt and flex to meet the ever-changing needs and demands of the modern organization. Adapting to change and being resilient to setbacks are the operating principles that are needed for success.

More specifically, the FlexIndex looks at your client’s competency with:

  • PROACTIVITY – Taking action

  • CONNECTIVITY – Connecting with others
  • VARIETY-SEEKING – Seeking out new experiences
  • REJUVENATION – Coping with increasing pressure
