Hello, I’m Jurie Rossouw….

I’ve been focusing on the psychology and neuroscience of resilience for over 20 years. I’ve published multiple research papers on the neuroscience of resilience, appeared on TV, written books, and published many articles for various magazines and publications, all focused on how we can best build resilience in people.


My aim is to help you as a coach and trainer be fully prepared with tools, resources and training to be able to make meaningful change in the people you work with.


Through Driven, I also want to empower you to be able to reach more people through enhancing your practice with automation and AI – bringing coaching into the future.

My training delivery style is to deliver the most relevant and actionable information to you in an easy-going style through plain language.

As an example, here I am discussing our neuroscience research on building resilience through microtasks

The PR6 and Driven has been used with many age groups across various professions and occupational statuses. We’ve had great success with using the PR6 and Driven program with students from 14 years old and upwards.
You can choose the context of the training which automatically updates the course language to suit various contexts. This makes it broadly applicable, from students, to job seekers, to professionals, to athletes, and more.
Yes! Driven Pro is our online admin area where you (as a certified coach) can assess the resilience of clients through the PR6 and provide the Driven Resilience Program to clients. It works through a points based system where you can purchase points as needed to use the online services with clients. The points system will be explained within the certification course. Here you also get access to all the resources provided through the training. You’ll get 1 year free access to Driven Pro to try the service out with.

The course material is equivalent to two full days. Some of our practitioners complete the course on a weekend, while others do a bit each day until complete. It’s up to you how fast you want to complete, since it’s all self paced. Don’t worry about forgetting though, Driven will remind you to keep going!

As a practitioner, you can gain access to assign the PR6 assessment and Driven resilience training services.
