The HardiTraining® program was developed out of a hardiness-validated research model of performance, leadership, and health. Training emphasizes key attitudes and resources that bolster hardiness at the individual and group level. HardiTraining® outcome studies demonstrate its effectiveness in strengthening one’s ability to resist the stressful impact of personal and professional changes.


Three key areas of functioning contribute to the strength of a person’s, or an organization’s stress resistance resources. These hardy resources help one to work with disruptive changes in ways that turn them to advantage. The HardiTraining® Program, and its comprehensive training manuals, strategically develops individuals and organizations along these three key areas of functioning that strengthen HardiAttitudes® and bring lasting benefits to employees and the organization.
