Mental Toughness is an aspect of our personality that determines how we deal with stress and pressure, and how we can see change as an opportunity to grow and develop. It describes the mind-set that every person adopts in everything they do. It is closely related to qualities such as character, resilience and grit.
Mental Toughness is universal, applicable in many walks of life, and in everything we do, including transitions, managing change, leadership, career management, attainment and retention. At an organizational level it describes a key element of culture.
Global research shows that Mental Toughness is a major factor in:
Performance – explains up to 25% of the variation in attainment
Positive Behaviour – more engaged, positive and “can do” attitude
Wellbeing – more contentment and better stress management
Aspirations – more positive about opportunities and open to learning
In short, in an age of unprecedented complexity, turbulence and change, our mental toughness matters.
Drawing upon the very latest global research and his own extensive international experience working within the corporate and education sectors, Doug Strycharczyk will provide an overview into to this important area.
