Psychometric Profiling:
Mental Toughness and Leadership Style

Mental Toughness and Leadership capabilities are crucial for leaders and managers to deliver maximum organisational performance under the typical levels of challenge, pressure and stress associated with high level positions.

Mental Toughness         Leadership Styles

Aeona uses two validated and accurate psychometric measures, MTQ48 and ILM72, to measure Mental Toughness and Leadership styles in individuals and groups, from small teams, senior managers or departments to the whole organisation.

 

Example of the use of MTQ48 and ILM72: A case study in a local authority.

Mental Toughness and Leadership capabilities are crucial for leaders and managers to deliver maximum organisational performance under the typical levels of challenge, pressure and stress associated with high level positions.

These measures, MTQ48 and ILM72, help both the individual and the organisation deliver peak performance and manage stress, match the leadership style of individuals with the organisational needs in various situations, develop strategies and tactics to perform under pressure, get the best from their people, improve morale and the working environment, and improve bottom line performance.

A highly rated local authority with a centralised leadership culture successfully proceeded through two restructuring phases, visioning and planning, but the third phase, implementation of the ambitious change programme through team working, was less effective. Several initiatives were implemented without good results.

Psychometric profiling using MTQ48 and ILM72 gave some insight into potential reasons. The overall mental toughness profile of the senior management team was significantly lower than expected, with lower than expected scores on the challenge scale (ability to cope with change, challenge or variety), commitment scale (ability to deal with clear and demanding goals to deliver high performance) and control scale (suggesting they may not have believed they could make a difference). The leadership global scales were lower than expected for determination to deliver, individual cohesion and team working. While managers thought they were engaging the workforce, they were not actually portraying that message. This helped the organisation understand why delivery was not as successful as the planning stages and enabled them to address the situation through developing the managers' understanding and skills in teamwork and leadership.
