Developing a positive mindset using the Mental Toughness Framework and Realise Your Potential
At Kingswood we are dedicated to providing meaningful learning experiences for young people outside the classroom which focus on developing life skills. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to learn at any stage of their career, and we also like making the process fun! To facilitate your continued professional development, we'd like to invite you to an event we're hosting in partnership with AQR.
This half day workshop will explore the themes of Mental Toughness, control, commitment, challenge and confidence and will include interactive taster sessions, smaller group discussions and mini coaching sessions.
The objective of the course is to introduce you to practical tools and techniques to enable you to confidently explore these themes with your students and will also count towards your CPD.
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.
