Make Your Organisation More Resilient

“European shares touched a new 11-month low on Thursday, indicating a gloomy outlook for the global economy” The Telegraph 4th Aug 2011

This is just one of hundreds of headlines, articles and academic papers underlying the extremely difficult global circumstances in which we as commercial organisations have to trade in the short to medium term.

The real question is how resilient is your organisation?

Many of the pressures and stressors arising from the financial crisis are completely out of our control as individuals and organisations; therefore the way we deal and thrive within this pressured environment is the key to the ability to succeed in difficult times.

The concept of Mental Toughness accurately predicts how individuals and organisations are able to cope with the pressure and stressors of the work environment. Developed by Dr Peter Clough in Hull University the MTQ 48 tool assesses the ability to thrive when placed under pressure. It has been taken by many thousands of individuals from every level within many organisations and has been found to be a reliable and accurate measure of resilience in the face of challenge.

The Call of the Wild one day Mental Toughness workshop has been developed as a response to these difficult times. The workshop acts an introduction to the concept and illustrates how the tool will help to identify and develop the levels of Mental Toughness required within your organisation.

By the end of the workshop each individual will have had the chance to explore their own MTQ report and the subsequent implications both for them and their organisations.

The background and applications of Mental Toughness will be covered with a particular focus on the use of MTQ48 as a development tool.
