Mental Toughness is a practical concept that brings valuable insight into people and organisational development. It describes the mindset that every person adopts in everything they do. It is closely related to qualities such as character, resilience, grit, etc. It is defined as:

“A personality trait which determines, in large part, how people respond to challenge, stress and pressure, irrespective of their circumstances”.

This is a unique opportunity to explore this fundamental aspect of people development in the presence of two global thought leaders.

(Doug Strycharczyk, CEO, AQR International)

Doug is the CEO of for AQR International – Founded in 1989, AQR is now recognised as one of the most innovative test publishers in the world working in more than 80 countries.

AQR established its reputation as a thought leader in mental toughness. Doug has worked with Professor Peter Clough for 25+ years to define Mental Toughness and to create the world’s leading measure of Mental Toughness, the MTQ.

Doug is now recognised as a leading authority on the application of the framework to the worlds of work, education, and coaching.

Professor Peter Clough (Psychology Professor, University of Huddersfield)

Professor Peter Clough really needs little introduction. Whilst at the University of Hull, Peter initiated a programme of work which led to the development of the 4Cs concept for Mental Toughness – published in 2002 and now comfortably the most widely adopted description of Mental Toughness globally.

Since that time, he has collaborated with researchers all over the world to examine the concept further and to identify links to important aspects of work and life – his name appears on around 50 peer-reviewed papers.

By inclination an applied psychologist, his work has always focused on real-world issues. In recent times, together with long term collaborator Doug Strycharczyk and Dr. John Perry, Peter has been instrumental in taking the Mental Toughness concept to the next level.
