Mental Toughness

Mental Toughness is an agenda fast gaining momentum across the sports, education and business worlds. It is defined as:

….a quality which determines, in some part, how effectively individuals perform when exposed to stressors, pressure and challenge….irrespective of the prevailing situation. (Clough & Strycharczyk 2006)

‘Resilience’ is a word often used when discussing Mental Toughness – Resilience can be described as:

‘The ability to recover quickly from change, setback or misfortune’

My simple view is that people with strong mental toughness can (and do) make excellent leaders. The question often asked is whether you can develop stronger mental toughness?…thankfully the answer is yes!

The four key components of mental toughness are:

•   Challenge – an individual’s approach to challenge (or change) and whether they see problems/obstacles or opportunities

•   Control – The extent someone feels they are in control – some feel external factors control everything where others have a strong sense of self-control and influence over external activities

•   Commitment – The extent to which an individual persists with tasks and goals – either with a strong focus on delivery or the other end of the scale, easily distracted and diverted from the end goal.

•   Confidence – Individuals high in confidence have the self-belief to complete successfully tasks that may be considered too difficult by individuals with similar abilities but lower confidence.

Leaders who develop their mental toughness will deliver better results in terms of performance, quality and the bottom line…..maybe more organisations should be focusing more development activity to the mental Toughness of their leadership?

If you want to be more resilient, have greater confidence and deliver increased performance then join me for an exclusive master class on Friday 1st April, 10.30 - 16.30 at Liverpool & Sefton Chambers of Commerce. Click here to find out more and secure your place.
