Performing Under Pressure
Contrary to popular belief, none of us really perform better under pressure. Despite sports mythology, no one “rises to the occasion” when under pressure and does better than they do in practice. Pressure diminishes our judgment, decision-making, attention, dexterity, and performance in every way. But some of us are – and all of us can be – better prepared to perform under pressure. That is the concept presented by Drs. Hendrie Weisinger and J.P. Pawliw-Fryin in Performing Under Pressure, which draws on research from over 12,000 individuals.
It highlights the experiences of Fortune 500 employees and managers, Navy SEALS, Olympic and other elite athletes, and more, and features the latest findings from neuroscience. There are 22 specific strategies each of us can use in our personal and professional lives to perform at our best at all times – even when under pressure
Regardless of your position in the organization or in life, Performing Under Pressure will help you to do your best when it matters most.
