Mental Toughness

This workshop can be customised and adapted to meet your specific outcome requirements, either virtually or face-to-face.

Mental Toughness is a key leadership skill that enables leaders to create organisations that flourish.
It is a mixture of individual resilience, grit and confidence that combined, predict success. 
Anyone can develop resilience. We need to be able to access learned skills and tools so that stress or trauma does not derail us. The latest science shows that once you train your brain, your response to pressure and stress, is largely a conscious choice.. Achieving extraordinary results requires training your brain as much as your skill-sets.

Mental toughness is a measure of individual resilience and confidence that may predict success in sport, education and the workplace. The term originally emerged in the context of sports training, as a set of attributes that allow a person to become a better athlete and able to cope with difficult training and competitive situations and emerge without losing confidence. In recent decades, the term has been commonly used to describe a set of skills used in the business world.

Mental toughness can also be described as the ability to resist, manage and overcome doubts, worries, concerns and circumstances that prevent you from succeeding/excelling at a task or an objective that you have set out to achieve.
