Mental Toughness is a personality trait which is emerging as the key to understanding how people and organisations respond to stress, pressure and challenge. Developed initially by Professor Peter Clough, it is very well evidenced through more than 30 research papers. Published research shows that it is significant in:
- Performance– accounting for 25% of the variation in performance in individuals
- Wellbeing– developing contentment and enjoying what you do
- Positive Behaviour– developing positive mindset and creating a positive culture
It embraces concepts such as Mindset (Dweck), Grit (Duckworth) and Positive Psychology (Seligman). It is widely used in education all over the world for leaders, teachers and student development.
