About the book

How can individuals and organizations understand and measure mental toughness to deal with stress and challenge, and so improve performance? This fully updated third edition of Developing Mental Toughness provides the answers to unlock this potential.

Tracing its development from sports psychology into the business sector, Developing Mental Toughness provides a reliable psychometric measure to apply at the organizational level. With coverage on how mental toughness relates to other behaviours and can be applied to employability, leadership, performance, creativity, emotional intelligence and motivation, the practical guidance and exercises in this book make it essential reading for academics, managers and coaches alike.

This third edition includes an expansion of the 4Cs model to include concepts on learning orientation and resilience and new chapters on evidence-based practice and using the Mental Toughness Questionnaire (MTQ48) to gain richer self-awareness. Featuring case studies from Deloitte and Ethiad, Developing Mental Toughness is the practical coaching guide for developing capabilities and resilience.

About the authors

Peter Clough is former Head of Psychology at Hull University, UK. Based in East Yorkshire, UK, he is recognised as a leading applied academic authority in this field.

Doug Strycharczyk, based in Chester, UK, is MD for AQR, an organisation which has been instrumental in most of the pilots which lead to the adoption of mental toughness in new sectors.

John Perry is Head of Psychology at Mary Immaculate College, Limerick, Republic of Ireland. He has presented his research across the globe, and has worked as a sport psychology practitioner with elite athletes.


The book reveals that our level of mental resilience is not something that is decided upon at birth; it can be improved over the course of an individual's life. There are many practical strategies for building mental resilience and I have recommended the utilization of Mental Toughness as a main assessment tool for candidate selection and filtration for leadership development programs. For anyone who seeks a genuine change in his life or others' lives; this is the starting point!
