The professor of São Paulo School of Business Administration (FGV/EAESP), Paulo Sabbag, analyzed aspects of his work about resilience - the ability to recover from adversities - in an interview with Época Negócios magazine. Founder of the first nationwide scale to assess the resilience level of professionals, Sabbag decided to study the subject because of his Ph.D. thesis about how a project manager faces risks and uncertainties, as well as for his personal experience and the emergence of the concept in the midst of his research.

The professor used in the study FGV's base of distance learning students, made up of about 4,000 names at the time. He developed a questionnaire, mapping the nine factors that make up resilience: Self-efficacy, Tenacity, Empathy, Social Competence, Temperance, Optimism, Mental flexibility, Proactivity and Troubleshooting. The results fit people in four different patterns: low, high, and two variations of medium resilience.

Last year, Paulo Sabbag - who has a Master degree in Engineering and a Ph.D. in Business Administration - was one of the winners of the 55th Prêmio Jabuti in the Economy, Management and Business category, with his book Resilience: competence to deal with extraordinary situations in professional life.
