Integrating the latest neuropsychobiology and psychology research in the most comprehensive Resilience diagnostic

What is Resilience and why measure it?

Resilience is our ability to positively adapt and bounce back from life's challenges through mental, emotional and behavioural flexibility. Measuring resilience provides a gauge of our capacity to navigate adversity and thrive in an ever-changing world.  

The Personal Resilience Indicator (PRI) is a cutting-edge instrument, precision-engineered to guide and accelerate personal development. It is an independently scientifically validated psychometric that integrates the latest insights from neuroscience and psychology in a single assessment. What sets the PRI apart from other instruments is its ability to deliver unparalleled insights into an individual’s current level of emotional resilience by crafting a holistic resilience profile across six domains and twelve drivers. 

The latest neuro-psychobiology in a single assessment


The PRI distills more than three decades of neuroscience and psychology research into one integrated assessment. Crafted by a dedicated team of experts, (including neuroscientists, psychologists, executive coaches, therapists, and corporate trainers) the PRI offers a practical and insightful approach to understanding brain health.


The PRI provides a holistic overview of an individual's current level of resilience across six domains and twelve drivers. Each driver can be strengthened through targeted, evidence-based exercises and techniques. Our PRI report encourages meaningful, insight-driven conversations, ensuring a deep understanding and genuine commitment to the 'Why,' 'What,' and 'How' of the development journey.


The PRI offers a tangible measure of progress, functioning as a structured guide to facilitate, expedite, and assess personal growth. Whether you embark on one-on-one coaching journeys, group training, or corporate mental wellbeing programs, the PRI becomes a trusted ally in tracking and elevating the development process.

Independently Validated

The PRI's credibility is bolstered by an independent, blinded analysis by an esteemed psychometric expert. Their findings highlight the PRI's exceptional psychometric properties and superior reliability over other resilience tools. This validation firmly establishes PRI as the trusted choice for enhancing personal resilience and mental wellbeing in various contexts.

The power of the Personal Resilience Indicator

In contrast to conventional resilience assessments that can take hours to put into a meaningful context, the Personal Resilience Indicator (PRI) reveals insights in mere moments.

The circular PRI graphic goes beyond a simple score; it provides individuals with valuable background by positioning their score relative to the broader population. This unique feature allows individuals to understand precisely where they stand compared to others, offering insights into how their resilience measures up in real-world terms.

Additionally, the PRI graphic delves deeper, breaking down resilience into 6 domains and 12 drivers. This comprehensive breakdown offers individuals a granular view of their strengths. It also highlights areas for growth within the specific facets of resilience by helping to uncover the bedrock of beliefs and assumptions – the emotional and cognitive patterns that drive our reactions to our internal and external circumstances.  

Thus, the Personal Resilience Indicator provides a detailed snapshot of resilience in time, allowing individuals to answer the question: “How are my thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors enabling or limiting my ability to positively respond to life’s challenges and enjoy life to the fullest?”.

Armed with these insights, the Personal Resilience Indicator empowers individuals to take charge of their personal growth journey, providing them with actionable insights to thrive in a dynamic world.

The PRI draws from a wealth of scientific research spanning over 30 years. To stay at the forefront of resilience assessments, we continually adapt the PRI by incorporating the latest insights from psychology, neuroscience, and behavioral sciences.

Rigorous statistical and methodological analyses conducted by an independent psychometric expert and professor of Psychology confirm that The Personal Resilience Indicator is an internally consistent, valid measure of personal resilience with robust psychometric properties, with strong internal reliability, structural validity, and convergent validity.
