Mustafa Sarkar, PhD, Nottingham Trent University

Underpinned by resilience-related research, Mustafa will present an evidence-based approach to developing resilience for sustained success. To this end, the webinar will be divided into three main sections. The first section will describe the construct of resilience and explain what it is. Drawing on the existing body of scientific knowledge in this area, the second section will outline and discuss a mental fortitude training program for aspiring performers. The mental fortitude training program focuses on three main areas – personal qualities, facilitative environment, and challenge mindset – to enhance performers’ ability to withstand pressure. The third section will provide recommendations for practitioners implementing or undertaking this program. Specifically, Mustafa will reflect on his experiences of implementing the program with elite teams and organizations to provide recommendations for professional practice in this area. This webinar will facilitate a holistic and systematic approach to developing resilience for sustained success.
