Building and Leading Resilient Teams Curriculum
Why build and lead resilient teams?
Resilient teams are the key to both individual and organizational resilience. Collective resilience is the team’s ability to overcome adversity, and then adapt and grow together because of that adversity. Resilient teams are stronger together and they make learning and change possible.
The Building and Leading Resilient Teams course is specifically designed for new and seasoned front-line supervisors, middle managers, and senior leaders in any occupation or industry. It is also appropriate for people that aspire to a leadership role.
Who is authorized to teach the course?
The Building and Leading Resilient Teams course is taught by our network of Authorized Education, Training, and L&D Partners. The course is designed to meet or exceed the education/training requirement for each level of Resilience-Building Leadership Professional® (RBLP®) certification.
How is the course delivered?
Seven weekly learning modules requiring 6 hours of student preparation and 3 contact hours of instructor-led group classroom discussion per module.
Individual preparation each week includes learning key terms and ideas, reading assignments to prompt critical thinking, and reflecting on your unique leader/follower experience with the leader tasks and concepts.
Facilitated weekly discussions are the key to successful learning because they ensure you have a thorough understanding of applicable factual (what), conceptual (why), and procedural (how) knowledge relevant to each leader task in the five competency domains.

Will you be ready to take a certification exam?
Completing a program in Building and Leading Resilient Teams with one of our Authorized Education, Training, or L&D Partners satisfies the education/training requirement for all three levels of Resilience-Building Leadership Professional® (RBLP®) certification exams. The RBLP series of certification exams are administered by the Resilience-Building Leader Program only. Completing a program of instruction does not guarantee a passing score on any exam administered by the Resilience-Building Leader Program.
- Front-line supervisors that sit for the Resilience-Building Leadership Professional (RBLP) certification exam are assessed on the leader tasks covered in Modules 1-3 only. Sitting for the RBLP-C and RBLP-T exams in the future does not require additional training.
- Middle managers that sit for the Resilience-Building Leadership Professional Coach (RBLP-C) certification exam are assessed on the leader tasks covered in Modules 1-5 only. Sitting for the RBLP-T exam in the future does not require additional training.
- Senior leaders that sit for the Resilience-Building Leadership Professional Trainer (RBLP-T) certification exam are assessed on the leader tasks covered in Modules 1-7.
How is the certification exam administered?
The RBLP® series of leadership certification exams are conducted orally in English or Spanish by exam administrators via video conference. No special software downloads are required. These certification exams provide the public with a reliable mechanism for certifying that front-line supervisors, middle managers, and senior leaders demonstrate competency in the leader tasks applicable to building and leading resilient teams.
Applicants for certification are required to show competence of factual, conceptual, and procedural knowledge (what, why, and how) for each leader task in the competency domains applicable to their level of certification. Oral certification exams are administered because leadership knowledge can be tested more effectively by oral exam than by written examination. Passing an oral exam also ensures that certification holders can coach and train others in the workplace.
Certification Exam Knowledge Requirements
- Factual knowledge is knowing what terms and ideas mean. You will gain competence in this knowledge dimension by learning applicable definitions, meanings, and specific details. The key terms and ideas covered in each module provide the foundation for understanding associated concepts.
- Conceptual knowledge is knowing the interrelationships among key terms and ideas. You will gain competence in this knowledge dimension by learning how key terms and ideas function together to form a concept; by learning classifications, categories, and principles; and by learning theories, models, and structures. The concepts covered in each module provide the foundation for understanding associated leader tasks.
- Procedural knowledge is knowing how to implement processes and carry out procedures. You will gain competence in this knowledge dimension through your experience implementing subject-specific skills, techniques, and methods; through your experience determining when to use appropriate procedures; through your experience discovering or revealing something through detailed examination; and through your experience making judgments and decisions based on given criteria and standards. The leader tasks covered in each module are essential to building and leading resilient teams.
