Resilience is a practical, integrated method for liberating human potential.

The Resilience Institute was founded in 2002. Its mission is to deliver high-impact, practical, and integrated Resilience training. It is evidence-based bringing together modern preventative medicine, positive psychology, emotional intelligence (EQ), cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and neuroscience.

On Resilience
"...more than education, experience, or training, an individuals level of resilience will determine who succeeds & who fails."
Harvard Business Review, 2002

On The Resilience Leadership Program:
"I've been in the business nearly 19 years and in Leadership roles for the last 10, and it was great to do something new that can totally change the way you lead your team. I would love to see it rolled out to all People Leaders."
Senior Manager - Top 4 Aus Bank

On The Practical Resilience Program:
“... any change is a journey, thank you for re-opening my eyes to the opportunities around me & providing a base from which I can see myself spring back to life as a whole."
Calvin - Manager, Northpower
