Ambition has teamed up with AQR International, a leader in the field of mental toughness, to bring members series of complimentary webinars.

Whilst the first webinar in this series focused on introducing mental toughness and the 4Cs framework and the second focused on its application with young people, the focus for this programme is on the wellbeing and performance of staff and groups of staff in organisations.

The programme examines sources of stress, pressure and challenge for leadership teams and staff and how developing a positive mindset is key to staff development and performance.

The evidence shows that:

  • Those mentally tough approach things more positively and can identify opportunity where others only see threats. They deal more effectively with stressors
  • The Mental Toughness of those engaged in developing young people is itself a factor in the mental toughness of young people. Not only is this a key quality for a challenging role but young people see their tutors and facilitators as role models
  • Mental Toughness correlates strongly with staff retention, performance and their wellbeing

The session will explore:

  • Why assessing Mental Toughness is important – to direct intervention and evaluate change
  • Developing this in individuals and in organisations – approaches, tools and techniques
  • How to coach for Mental Toughness
  • How this approach can be cascaded down into all areas of the organisation and the programmes staff will be delivering

This session is designed for those who are responsible for or have an interest in staff development and wellbeing. Book here
