Mental Toughness

Zenon Consulting works in partnership with JHK Ltd delivering our Mental Toughness programmes. Mental Toughness is a key aspect of performance in the workplace Mental Toughness refers to an individual’s resilience and inner drive to succeed - particularly when the going is challenging. It explains why it is possible to place two individuals into the same working environment and to see that one finds it difficult to cope with pressure and one thrives.

The mental toughness program has been specifically designed to enable organisations to understand what their people need to do to respond more effectively to the pressures in today’s world of work.

Employees increasingly have to:

  • Work to demanding goals and targets
  • Handle several things at the same time - often on their own initiative
  • Respond to sudden changes andnew demands
  • Achieve - despite setbacks and interruptions

The consequence of failing to do this effectively is:

  • Under performance for the organisation
  • Stress related problems for employees

Through a simple, short questionnaire we measure individuals’ abilities in 4 key areas, enabling organisations to:

  • Help managers get the best from their people
  • Recruit more effectively around these key criteria
  • Understand why some people succeed and others struggle when the pressure is on
  • Develop strategies & tactics to helporganisations & individuals performunder pressure
  • Challenge, control, confidence and commitment can all be measured to give an overall measure of Mental Toughness.

The result:

  • Improved morale & a better working environment
  • Better ability to recruit people who can make it
  • Reduced risk of stress related claims and awards
  • Better bottom line performance - £

Call Zenon Consulting if you want your team to:

  • See challenge as an opportunity for personal and professional growth
  • Feel in control at all times
  • Be assertive and have confidence in their abilities
  • Work hard and commit to goals
  • Have an awareness of self and their impact on others
  • Be able to bounce back quickly after a setback
  • Pursue deadlines even when they’re way behind schedule
