Our Mission, Vision, and Purpose

The Resilience-Building Leader Program is the certification body for the Resilience-Building Leadership Professional® (RBLP®) series of leadership certifications. Our mission is to certify front-line supervisors (RBLP), middle managers (RBLP-C), and senior leaders (RBLP-T) in Building and Leading Resilient Teams.

Our growing network of Authorized Education and Training Partners teaches the Building and Leading Resilient Teams curriculum that we developed. The curriculum is designed to meet or exceed the education/training requirement for each level of Resilience-Building Leadership Professional® (RBLP®) certification

Collective resilience is the team’s ability to overcome adversity, and then adapt and grow together because of that adversity. Our vision is to create a worldwide community of practice committed to Building and Leading Resilient Teams.

Resilient teams are the key to both individual and organizational resilience. Resilient teams are stronger together and they make learning and change possible. Our purpose is to share this truth with leaders everywhere.

Our Core Values

Care: Take care of our employees first and foremost.

Value: Provide value to our customers always.

Community: Give back to the community along the way.

Learn: Learn every day.
