Mental Toughness is a personality trait which is emerging as the key to understanding how people and organisations respond to stress, pressure and challenge. Published research shows that it is significant in performance, wellbeing, positive behaviour and developing positive mindset.
It embraces concepts such as Mindset (Dweck) and positive psychology (Seligman). It is widely used in education for staff and leader development as well as student development.
MTQ48 is the world’s first valid and reliable psychometric questionnaire measuring Mental Toughness.
Four components of resilient behaviour
I can manage my emotions and my response to others
Ill do what it takes to keep my promises and achieve my goals
Learning from experience:
Ill have a go. Even setbacks are opportunities for learning
I believe I have the ability to do it - or can acquire the ability
- To introduce participants to an important concept and model – fulfilling an important CPD need.
- To indicate simple and practical approaches to developing wellbeing and a positive frame of mind using Kingswood learning activities.
- To provoke thinking about developing individuals, teams and schools.
What can I expect from the programme?
- A highly participative event – optimising the opportunity to understand the concept enjoyably. Delegates will have the opportunity to complete the MTQ48 measure free of charge prior to attending the workshop.
- Effective – delegates will be able to use the concepts to their full almost immediately
Ultimately you will be equipped with knowledge and skills to optimise your own performance and wellbeing and to work with others to do the same for them.
