Resilience Alliance

Resilience Alliance equips coaches, consultants, and trainers to have powerful resilience conversations

We live in a turbulent world. The array of challenges we face tests our ability to maintain well-being and productivity at work, at home, and in the community.

As people encounter dangers and opportunities, they can experience disruption and a loss of control. They spend mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual energy to move through these challenges.

Some are better at it than others.

We believe that through training and practice, individuals can learn to understand, manage, and strengthen their own responses to challenge and change. In turn, this increased personal resilience serves as a foundation for resilient teams and resilient cultures, which are crucial to succeeding in the midst of turbulence.

Through nearly 30 years of research, study, and experience, we have identified a set of characteristics that help individuals effectively deal with disruption, change, and challenge; we have identified practical approaches to strengthen resilience in individuals, teams, and organizations.

We train practitioners to apply these approaches in a wide range of settings–organizations, coaching relationships, communities, and more. This global network of practitioners is prepared to help individuals, teams, and organizations build resilience.

Our highly trained and experienced staff is continually learning, updating our materials, and sharing new information with our practitioners. Our small and flexible structure allows us to be extremely responsive to client needs.

Please contact us to begin a conversation about how we might work together to prepare your organization for a world of constant change.
