The world in which we live is full of pressures and stressors. From the moment we wake to the time we go to sleep, most of us find ourselves responding to stress, pressure and challenge. For some of us that pressure is a driver. It stimulates us and we respond by aspiring to high performance. For others that same pressure will produce a different response.

Our assessments and development programmes enable individuals and organisations to:

  • Identify nature of challenge and the sources of stress and pressure – and the consequences for performance
  • Identify individual’s strengths and mental toughness development needs in dealing with stressors, pressure and challenges
  • Implement techniques to deal and/or cope with stressors and challenges and develop their mental toughness
  • Create and sustain effective plans to build mental toughness and optimise performance, wellbeing and develop positive behaviours
