Resilience Alliance offers a 3-webinar series to certify practitioners on the use of the Personal Resilience Questionnaire and Profile. The series is scheduled on an as-needed basis, and usually takes about 3-4 weeks to complete. We are currently in the process of scheduling some open classes. For more information on the Personal Resilience Questionnaire and Profile, see our Products and Services page. For more information on our certification course, please contact Jacqueline Saszi at 404-371-1017 or firstname.lastname@example.org . Thank you!
Dear Resilience Practitioners:
While many of you are using group profiles effectively to help teams explore their combined responses to change, the Team Resilience Profile goes beyond this by including a second tool that evaluates the team’s effectiveness in combining and leveraging resources to create better results. This second tool is built on the model of Synergy described in Daryl Conner’s Managing at the Speed of Change. If you’d like to explore this a little further, Daryl has been blogging about the concepts of Synergy recently at http://changethinking.net/.
The combination of Personal Resilience and Synergy will help you focus teams on the things they need to do to enhance their performance during change.
The certification process will take you through the delivery of your first Team Resilience session. It includes online learning, one-on-one coaching, and applied practice. The price is $900, which includes your first team assessment and report.
For more information, see our Products and Services page. If you’re interested, please contact Jacqueline at email@example.com or 404-371-1017 for more information. There are two prerequisites: PRP Certification and past experience in group facilitation.

From my perspective, human energy is the currency of organizational change. People apply their energy to do the work of change, including adapting to the disruptions of expectations that major change introduces. Because human energy is finite, it is possible for people to become overloaded by change demand. Organizations contribute to change demand in several ways, including:
- Taking on too much change–either overall, or in a particular part of the organization
- Implementing change ineffectively, so that changes consume more energy than they should
While working to address these issues, organizations can also increase change capacity in several ways, including: [Read more…]
For the last few years, Resilience Alliance has been a sponsor of the conference hosted by the Association of Change Management Professionals. This year, in addition to our sponsorship, I will also be speaking (look for a forthcoming blog entry on the topic!) It’s been interesting to see how this organization, and the profession of change management, has developed over time.
When I entered the change management arena more than 20 years ago, its roots were primarily in the Organization Development field. I came in from the field of Industrial/Organizational Psychology, joining a company called ODR (founded by Daryl Conner) in a research/assessment development role. At that time, the major consulting firms were just building change management capability, and we worked with [Read more…]
