Published research and case studies from around the world show that Mental Toughness is a major factor in: 
  • Performance – explaining up to 25% of the variation in performance in individuals
  • Agility - positive behaviour – more engaged, more positive, more “can do”, dealing well with change
  • Wellbeing – more contentment, better stress management, less prone to bullying
  • Aspirations - more ambitious, prepared to manage more risk 
It is a major factor in retention, particularly in higher education, employability and is a key aspect of an organisation’s culture. It has applications in virtually every sector. In the world of work, it is key for leadership and staff development, particularly within change programmes as well as in talent management programmes. 


This webinar will examine briefly the mental toughness concept and look at tools and techniques designed to help people to deal effectively with stressors, pressures and challenges, including:

  • Positive thinking, Visualisation, Anxiety Control, Attentional Control & Goal setting
  • Providing an insight into why some interventions work for some and not for others
It will conclude with a brief overview of case studies where mental toughness development and subsequent assessment has evidenced a positive impact.
