Building effective teams using Mental Toughness

The MTQPlus assessment is a unique 74 item high-quality psychometric measure that measures Mental Toughness which describes the mindset that every person adopts in everything they do. It is closely related to qualities such as character, resilience, grit, etc.

Published research and case studies from around the world show that Mental Toughness is a major factor in:

  • Performance – explaining up to 25% of the variation in performance in individuals
  • Positive Behaviour – more engaged, more positive, more “can do”
  • Wellbeing – more contentment, better stress management, less prone to bullying
  • Aspirations – more ambitious, prepared to manage more risk

The MTQPlus assessment measures mindset on 8 scales: the four C’s and two additional subscales for each.

Building effective Teams using Mental Toughenss

How could team dynamics affect performance?

How could being Mentally Tough or Mentally Sensitive impact ourselves or the people we lead? 

Improve Wellbeing – Explore the concept of Mental Toughness and the relationship with resilience and how we can develop our Mental Toughness or incorporate coping strategies to improve our wellbeing.

Boost Team Performance – Explore how being Mentally Tough or Mentally Sensitive can manifest itself and what that can do to team dynamics and performance.

Prevent Conflict – Recognise when someone is at either end of the Mental Toughness and Mentally Sensitive spectrum and what life could look like for them. Also, be clear when conflicts could potentially occur and understand the need to adapt our style along the spectrum of Mental Toughness and Mental Sensitivity to address this.

In this 3-hour highly interactive workshop created and delivered by Samantha Sloan and Johanna Hooper, both highly experienced people managers and licenced users of the MTQPLUS psychometric measure all of the above will be explored through interaction and discussion.

This workshop is for individuals who wish to explore Mental Toughness, for teams or leaders of people.  

For attending the workshop you will also be provided with an MTQPLUS psychometric report (rrp £66), this can also be used as a coaching tool for yourselves or again with teams, which is a useful tool for building personal resilience.
