Take the Lead in Change

The Hardiness concept underlies our award-winning approach to helping employees and organizations deal effectively with change. Hardy employees and organizations take the lead in change because they possess key attitudes that motivate innovative, constructive, and performance enhancing, problem solving. The research is clear: employees and organizations high in HardiAttitudes and HardiCoping show greater performance, leadership, morale, conduct, and health.

HardiTraining® Program

Hardiness assessment and training services and programs was developed out of a hardiness-validated research model of stress management and performance, leadership, and health strengthening. Hardiness-based attitudes and skills can be taught to individuals or groups. Outcome studies show that our HardiTraining program is effective in helping individuals, companies and organizations to manage stressful changes, creatively solve problems, and to minimize the negative effects of stress.

Employees and Work Teams Can Learn to Become Hardier.

Stressful business changes can erode the hardiest of organizations, let alone those organizations that are low in hardy characteristics to begin with. Businesses faced with reorganization and marketplace pressures need a workforce capable of turning adversity to opportunity if they are to thrive. Today’s manager has the added challenge of finding innovative ways to motivate and grow their employees in the face of seemingly adverse workplace changes.

The First Step: HardiSurvey Assessment

HardiSurvey® assessment is your first step in taking the lead in change. Organizations that want to continue to thrive in changing times need to evaluate how their employees manage stressful changes. The HardiSurvey® is a powerful addition to your personnel recruitment, and performance evaluation measurements. Used across a number of settings and populations, the HardiSurvey® predicts performance, leadership, stamina, and health in the military, sports, the Olympic team, schools, business, and in medical setting.

The Second Step: HardiTraining® Program

Our HardiTraining® program is your next step. This five-course performance and health enhancement program teaches personnel how to become more hardy and managers learn how to grow a more resilient, hardy workforce. We prepare your company to deal effectively with stressful changes.

Three key areas of functioning strengthen an individual’s or an organization’s ability to manage change. They include the areas of coping, social support, and self-care. The HardiTraining Program, and its comprehensive training manuals, strategically develops trainees along these three key areas of functioning that together strengthen HardiAttitudes and a hardiness skill-set that bring lasting benefits to people and organizations.
