Nicholson McBride’s Resilience Quotient (RQ)

Thank you for your interest in the Nicholson McBride RQ questionnaire.

Following an extensive literature review, Nicholson McBride’s research into resilience was launched nearly a decade ago. Now comprising nearly 40,000 responses, our data has revealed five key elements that make up individual RQ. Having closed the research phase, and validated our model, the questionnaire is temporarily unavailable while we carry out development work to the site and database. The RQ will be made available again, at a small cost, at the end of May 2017.

We currently offer Resilience workshops to help individuals understand and develop their RQ, as well as Nicholson McBride Resilience Certification to facilitators, coaches and L&D specialists using the Nicholson McBride RQ.
