This program is based on the New York Times and Amazon bestselling book Performing Under Pressure.

Pressure changes how the brain functions; it diminishes our cognitive success tools – our ability to think, deal with change, make decisions, focus and pay attention. Most people take a haphazard approach to dealing with their pressure moments. Our study of 12,000 people showed the top 10% performers have insight about their pressure moments and situations, and use strategies to be their best under pressure.

Focusing on managing your thinking under pressure, this program will provide you with techniques and tools to help you overcome the sabotaging effects of pressure so you can think clearly and strategically, make decisions, perform complex tasks and lead others when there is change and pressure.

In this program, you will learn:

  1. How to better manage pressure so it becomes a competitive advantage for you in growing your career and in helping your organization drive performance
  2. Research from our study of 12,000 people and what the top 10% did to excel under pressure
  3. Three pressure insights that will help you avoid the sabotaging effective of pressure
