Background: In the context of resilience, the pilot resilience scale in Spanish was developed to assess resilience for workers, leaders and teams. Method: The factorial structure of the scale was tested using exploratory and confirmatory factors analysis with a Colombian multi-occupational employee sample (N= 53). Results: The reliability (internal consistency) of the scales was assessed with Cronbach's alpha: Total pilot resilience scale (0.94), individual resilience sub-scale (0.86), leadership resilience sub-scale (0.95) and team resilience sub-scale (0.84). Exploratory factor analysis (EFA) determines a structure of 5 factors that explain 46% of variance. Total: 75 items. Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) forced to 3 factors and selecting the items up to 99% representativeness of the variability. Total: 41 items. The items were reviewed by experts in work psychology. Final pilot resilience scale includes items the highest statistical weight EFA of 5 factors and all items of CFA (removing repeated items). Conclusions: Total 62 items to be validated in a wide sample of workers in Colombia to develop a reliable instrument to measure resilience
