  Mental toughness benefits for probation trusts

With the Ministry of Justice facing spending cuts of up to 23% by 2015, funding for probation trusts will fall in real terms, stimulating a period of sustained change and downsizing. Trusts' senior leadership teams will be required to create and implement challenging change programmes.

If you are the chief executive of a probation trust, or the chairman of a probation board, you can use mental toughness when:

  • Performance improvement is required
  • You need to rapidly create a change programme to implement budget cuts
  • Greater accountability is required from senior leaders
  • You are facing significant resource cuts whilst having to maintain service levels
  • Improved delegation and decision-making skills are required
  • Your staff are suffering the adverse effects of higher stress levels
  • Productivity and efficiency gains are needed to offset the impact of cuts
  • You need to instil a 'can-do' attitude
  • Staff motivation and morale are low
  • You and your senior leadership team have tough decisions to make and implement

The benefits to a probation trust of a mental toughness programme created and delivered by JHK are:

  • Improved performance
  • The creation of an effective change management strategy
  • Reduced stress, and a reduction of the negative impact of stress
  • Maintained, or increased, service delivery
  • Empowered, capable, decisive and motivated managers
  • Increased productivity and efficiency
  • Budget savings
  • Staff retention, improved morale and increased motivation
  • Senior leaders who accept responsibility, take timely, effective decisions and are more accountable
