Mental toughness is measured by how effectively individuals respond to stress, pressure and challenge. Developing Mental Toughness clearly and effectively explains the concept of mental toughness and traces its development from sports psychology into organizational development, health and education.

This book covers the key skills and techniques required to recognize, use and develop mental toughness in others including evaluation, ROI and improving attention spans. The authors consider mental toughness in relation to education, working in teams and career planning, and they discuss the four core pillars of mental toughness:

-Challenge: seeing challenge as an opportunity
-Confidence: having high levels of self-belief
-Commitment: being able to stick to tasks
-Control: believing that people control their own destiny

Written for coaches looking to improve the performance of individuals and teams, Developing Mental Toughness contains practical guidance on techniques that will provide skills for responding to and harnessing the effects of stress and pressure.
