IHHP has spent 15 years studying over 120,000 subjects to determine the impact of pressure on performance, emotions, cognition, conversations, reputations, and leadership. Our research clearly demonstrates that one of the great differentiators of high performance and effective leadership is not smarts or technical expertise, but how well you perform in your difficult moments, when the pressure is on.
Pressure Training Curriculum
At the same time that pressure is increasing in organizations today, we have found that pressure is poorly understood, not well managed and one of the most ‘untapped’ sources of competitive advantage. From our research, we find three characteristics that high performers and effective leaders have in common:
- They are able to intelligently manage their own and others’ emotions under pressure
- They are able to have the difficult conversations that are so critical to building relationships and creating a culture of trust and accountability
- They have developed a reputation that allows them to influence and drive change in organizations
Emotional Intelligence & Leadership Training: Performing Under Pressure
Our leadership training programs and emotional intelligence training programs start by helping you understand the science behind how pressure impacts your brain and how to use this insight to better manage through these situations more skillfully.
IHHP’s programs can help your team perform at a higher level. Our training programs are based on the new science of performing and leading under pressure, bridged with our expertise working ‘on the ground’ with some of the highest performing organizations around the world: Goldman Sachs, Intel, Microsoft, The Federal Reserve Bank, the U.S. Navy and Army, NASA, and the Orlando Magic.
Just like these organizations, you and your leaders face pressure in various forms: change, need to innovate, need for growth, increased customer service. Just as these organizations have, you and your team can also learn to perform and lead more effectively under pressure through our ground breaking research and learning programs.
