Evaluating your answers
All of the resilience self-test statements were phrased positively. Individual answers of 3 or 4 would indicate a high degree of resilience in that area. Lower scores signify that attention and skill building are required. However you use this instrument, whether formally or informally, the Resiliency Self-Assessment Questionnaire will provide you with objective data to help you prepare to build resilience in your employees and overall organization.
