Mental Toughness

"Mental Toughness is a quality which determines, in some part, how effectively individuals perform when exposed to stressors, pressure and challenge .... irrespective of the prevailing situation" - (AQR Ltd)

Can we assess Mental Toughness? Yes

We are able to assess mental toughness through a unique 48 item high quality psychometric measure - MTQ48. It is normative which enables users to assess mental toughness before and after an event such as a training & development or coaching programme.

Can we develop Mental Toughness? Yes

We can either help someone change their mental toughness or we can show someone how to adopt the behaviours that a mentally tough person would adopt. Either way many of the benefits of developing mental toughness can be achieved.
