About Us

Our Mission

The Resilience-Building Leader Program is the credentialing body for the Resilience-Building Leadership Professional (RBLP) series of leadership certifications. Our mission is to identify and certify people that are ready to build resilient teams and lead them in a challenging environment. People that earn an RBLP certification can be confident that their professional credential is based on competency standards developed in accordance with industry best practices in exam development and administration.

We are a member organization of the Institute for Credentialing Excellence. Our credentialing efforts are aligned with the standards set forth in the Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing (American Educational Research Association, American Psychological Association, & National Council on Education Measurement, 2014).

Our certification processes and procedures ensure that all RBLP credential holders demonstrate their competence adequately and fairly. Our certification exams provide the public with a dependable mechanism for certifying that front-line supervisors, middle managers, and senior leaders have met relevant standards of competence.

Our Vision

The Resilience-Building Leader Program was founded by Dr. Gene Coughlin on the idea that collective resilience is essential for organizational learning and change. Our purpose is to share this idea with leaders everywhere. We envision a worldwide community of practice made up of front-line supervisors, middle managers, and senior leaders that are committed to the value proposition for Building Resilient Teams.

The core values that guide our journey to realizing this vision include:

  1. Take care of our employees first and foremost.
  2. Take care of customers always.
  3. Take care of our community along the way.
  4. Learn every day.
