Mental toughness - A 'train the trainer' two-day in-house workshop - AQR approved

Accompanied by trainer notes and interactive discussions, it will provide the trainer with the knowledge, skills and tools to train others in mental toughness development interventions by providing a practical understanding of:

  • The importance of mental toughness: how to assess it and apply it in the workplace
  • The nature of challenge and the sources of stress and pressure – and the consequences for performance and wellbeing
  • Your individual strengths and development needs in dealing with stressors, pressure and challenges
  • Tools and techniques designed to help people to deal effectively with stressors, pressures and challenges – and the opportunity to practise them, helping people to perform to the best of their abilities irrespective of circumstances
