Mental Toughness is where discipline and singular focus meet ability.

DSC provides the practical and psychological adversity which forge and reinforce mental toughness within a person or team. The ability to perform despite distraction, discomfort, conflict or fatigue is a powerful advantage on any playing field. Very often we do not push far enough to reach our potential and goals…mental toughness builds the personal grit needed to achieve where others fail; to succeed at the seemingly impossible.

The Attentional Interpersonal Style Inventory (TAIS) measures three basic performance building blocks—Leadership, Emotional Control, and Performance Under Pressure—and is used to help individuals understand the conditions that undermine their performance and help them operate more successfully under stressful conditions.

 

 

TAIS applications include:

  • Selection and Screening of Executive hires

  • Development of a tailored program to enhance performance skills

  • Identification of strengths and weaknesses for developing elite level performers

  • Similarities and differences among team members

  • Identification of root causes to solve performance roadblocks

  • Evaluation of mental skills in potential draft picks in sport
