Building Mental Toughness in Yourselves & Young People

We are delighted to be welcoming Clive Leach back to BISS Puxi in April. Whilst he is with us, he will be leading two sessions for parents, one on building mental toughness and the other on the role of coaching conversations. 

  • Clive Leach leads sessions for parents at the British International School Shanghai, Puxi Campus

Building Mental Toughness in Yourselves & Young People

Monday 13 April 6:30 – 7:30pm, Stage One

Whilst not all situations require Mental Toughness, research in schools and workplaces is increasingly showing that the presence of Mental Toughness predicts greater resilience & well-being; enhanced positive behaviours; improved academic performance; increased employability!

So…are you and your family mentally tough?

We welcome you to once again join Clive Leach for this exciting presentation to learn more about...

  • What mental toughness is
  • How we can measure it
  • How we can build it

Clive will share some practical tools and tips that can help us to better manage ourselves, support those around us and sustain our capacity both individually and collectively to perform at our very best. Please reply to events@bisspuxi.com to let us know you are coming. 

Clive Leach is an organisational coach working within the corporate, government and education sectors in Australia, SE Asia, China & the UK. Clive is accredited to administer the Realise2 Strengths Assessment & the MTQ48 Mental Toughness Questionnaire. For more information visit www.cliveleach.com
