Mental Toughness and Resilience in staff and students
This workshop focuses on the wellbeing and performance of staff and students, and examines the main sources of stress, pressure and change for leadership and how developing a positive mindset is key to development and performance.
Mental Toughness is a personality trait which is emerging as the key to understanding how people and organisations respond to stress, pressure and challenge. Published research shows that it is significant in:
Performance – accounting for 25% of the variation in performance in individuals
Wellbeing – developing contentment and enjoying what you do
Positive Behaviour – developing positive mindset and creating a positive culture
It embraces concepts such as Mindset and positive psychology. The MTQ48 psychometric test is widely used in education all over the world for staff and leader development as well as student development.
Understanding teachers and students level of mental toughness will be mutually beneficial for both. Teachers can become evaluators of their own teaching and schools can use early interventions with students who may need support. Students themselves will have an improved awareness of their own levels of resilience
