Leadership and Mental Toughness to Navigate the Crisis


Developing Mental Toughness in time of crisis training incorporates the Mental Toughness program, a scientific tool developed in the UK by AQR International. It is a tool to help understand how Entrepreneurs/Leaders/Managers respond to stress, pressure, opportunity and challenge and how this ability can be enhanced in time of crisis.  The training focuses on increasing performance, well-being, agility, positive behaviors and aspirations.


• Introduction to Mental Toughness, Models and Good Practices.
• Developing Motivation, Resilience & a Positive Mindset.
• Dealing with Stress and Procrastination.
• Developing Mental Toughness & Personal Action Plans.


The training methodology is highly participatory and uses a kaleidoscope of interactive hands-on exercises.

Our approach is to embrace key themes:

ENGAGING – This ranges from making tutorial material interesting to helping to embed learning through a high degree of delegate participation.
ACCESSIBLE – Language, content and style of delivery is simple, jargon free and easy to understand
PRACTICAL – all learning are straightforwardly transferable into the workplace based on live examples.
MEASURABLE – a program is to change the mind-set, well being and performance – in the short term and in the long term. And where important to do so we would be able to either measure it or support the delegate/client to measure it.

The workshop uses practical and interactive tools on how to develop an effective leadership culture as well as how to develop the resilience and positive behaviors of staff – their mental toughness.

Delivery Style

The coach has real world experience as well as a sound grasp of theories and models.

Her approach guarantees knowledge and skills transfer culminating from her first-hand extensive experience as a serial entrepreneur, and pioneer in media and communication.

E-workshops will be highly practical and will require participants to be involved in exercises, case studies, role plays and practice sessions. The goal will be to make people as comfortable as possible to apply whatever they learn.
