When the pressure is on…
• Do you freeze up trying to figure out what to do?
• Do you get frustrated?
• Do you make subpar decisions that you later regret?
How you function in high-pressure situations can propel your career forward, or hold you back. By learning to harness the power of your mind, you can change your response to stress and achieve extraordinary results when it matters most.
When the Pressure’s On brings peak performance principles to the workplace, revealing five core mental skills for excelling under duress: goal setting • adaptive thinking • stress/energy management • attention control • imagery.
Developed for West Point cadets, fine-tuned for elite Olympic and professional athletes, and now tailored for business leaders, this complete brain-training program gives you clear explanations, practical exercises, assessments, and stories of people who have learned to alter their in-grained thought patterns and behaviors.
At the highest level of any pursuit, the difference between top performers is always mental. While one person succumbs to the pressure, the other stays calm, capable, and in command of their decision-making abilities. When the Pressure’s On will help you master your nerves and acquire the mindset you need to win.
