Of course resilience coaching works. Coaching to build resilience is a fairly recent field of psychology that is being embraced by many organisations across the world. Rather than focus on putting the pieces back together after a significant event in a persons life, resilience coaching is the fence at the top of the cliff preventing the negative impact of a significant event. The US Army launched a resilience training program in 2008 under the stewardship of Martin Seligman, the man who pioneered depression prevention. Known as Master Resilience Training (MRT) it is mandatory for all soldiers to attend. With over 14,000 trainers, over one million soldiers are now trained in the art of resilience.
