Resilience – the ability to “bounce back” from a set-back, is related to Mental Toughness, which determines in large part how individuals deal with challenge, stress, and pressure.

However, If a difficult situation arises, and the person copes with it, while they can be described as resilient, that does not mean that they are positive about the experience. They may have simply gritted their teeth and got on with it – because ‘they have to’.  Without a positive mindset, overexposure to setback and challenges can, and often will, wear down the individual.

Most if not all mentally tough individuals are resilient but not all resilient individuals are mentally tough. Developing Mental Toughness can help individuals view challenge as an opportunity, learn from setbacks, develop a ‘can do’ attitude and build their resilience.

This course will help participants understand and improve their own Mental Toughness in order to be more resilient and effective in the workplace.
