Professor Peter Clough’s Inaugural Lecture at MMU
Congratulations to Professor Peter Clough (one half of the rock stars of mental toughness with Doug Strycharczyk) on delivering his inaugural address at Manchester Metropolitan University on Tuesday 17th May 2016.
Speaking to a capacity audience he spoke about the journey taken to develop the 4Cs model of Mental Toughness. Peter traced the academic roots of the model, how it integrated well with a great deal of current thinking and is now breaking new ground in understanding human behaviour. Collaborations with universities from around the globe had, to date, produced 67 peer reviewed journal articles often taking the concept into new applications.
Peter also spoke about the remarkable growth in the application of the 4Cs model and the Mental Toughness Questionnaire, the MTQ48, into:
- staff and leadership development
- organisational development
- the world of sport.
A major recent development links sport to the development of those who are disadvantaged or disconnected in some way with some remarkable achievements with organisation as diverse as London Youth Rowing, MU Foundation and Career Connect. Case studies are available via our resources page.
At Mental Toughness Partners we’re delighted to be working with Peter Clough, Doug Strycharczyk and the AQR team on developing mental toughness within Australia and the Asia Pacific region.
