Organisations need resilient leadership. With the constant and increasing pressure on leaders to improve organisational performance they also need to be able to perform at the highest level under extreme pressure. To achieve this they need to be mentally tough enough to make rational and correct decisions and support the people around them.
To be effective and successful leaders need to be mentally tough. They need to set and communicate the vision, bring people with them on the journey, drive for results and seize opportunities from the inevitable setbacks and failures along the way. These responsibilities require effective leadership and effective leadership requires mental toughness.
The role of a leader is to inspire, influence and direct the performance of people towards achieving the desired goals. Being a popular and resilient leader helps you achieve this through higher engagement. This engagement is critical and indeed the high quality ILM72 which measures leadership capability identifies engagement as two of the three core competencies of leadership:
- engagement with individuals
- engagement with teams
- determination to deliver.
For many people in leadership positions both work and life are becoming more challenging and many now report that they are becoming increasingly stressed. Mental Toughness is a significant factor in determining how a person responds to stress, pressure and challenge – and how that impacts on performance, wellbeing and positive behaviours.
Our programmes equip leaders with development strategies and plans to help them perform under pressure, and to support others around them. This leads to better performance, wellbeing and, in many instances, an improved work life balance.
Mental Toughness Partners run “Mental Toughness Development Programmes for Leaders” to assist them to develop strategies to perform under pressure, leading to better performance, wellbeing and improved work life balance.
