The Five C's Mental Toughness Development Model (Tham & Weigand, 2010)

The five mental toughness competencies highlighted here are:

1. Composure: Being calm and handling competitive pressure and anxiety,

2. Concentration: Focusing on what really matters without being distracted,

3. Confidence: Having self-belief and trust during stressful situations,

4. Cope-ability (aka Coping with Challenges): Handling mistakes and challenges through mental resilience, and

5. Cohesion: Possessing a team-oriented attitude and mindset.

Mental toughness has been found to change with time, experience, and across situations. As such, a long-term development approach is recommended to developing the "winning" mindset.
