Mental Strength Coaching

Mental toughness (or strength, if you prefer) describes the mind-set that every person adopts in everything they do. It is closely related to qualities such as character, resilience and grit. The MTQ48 psychometric tool (developed from research carried out under the direction of Professor Peter Clough of Manchester Metropolitan University) measures these qualities, and is appropriate to many coaching settings.

The MTQ48 tool looks at how we think, which is a key driver for the development of behaviour and attributes and can be assessed in terms of 4 Cs – Control, Commitment, Challenge and Confidence.

Independent validation and numerous case studies from around the world show that mental toughness is a major factor in:

Explaining up to 25% of the variation in performance in individuals

Positive Behaviour
More engaged, more positive, more “can do”

More contentment, better stress management, less prone to bullying

More ambitious, prepared to manage more risk
