Mental Toughness is a mindset which determines, in some part, how you perform when exposed to stressors, pressure and challenge. It can play a significant role in determining how you manage stress as well as being a key factor in enabling you to perform to the peak of your abilities.
This workshop explores the 4 Cs Model of Mental Toughness (Commitment, Control, Challenge and Confidence) developed at the University of Hull (UK) under the direction of Dr Peter Clough. Dean McManus of Celebrity Teacher is a licensed facilitator of the Mental Toughness Development Program & MTQ48 measure that has grown out of the work of Dr Clough and Doug Strycharczyk.
All participants in this workshop are given a login and password to complete the MTQ48 measure online prior to the workshop. It takes 7-10 minutes to complete. During the workshop participants will receive a report with their results and be given information on how to read it, interpret the results and use it to guide further development work. All reports are written in clear and simple language.
- Better understand stressors, pressure and challenge
- Deal with stress effectively
