"Nobody performs better under pressure. Regardless of the task, pressure ruthlessly diminishes our judgment, decision-making, attention, dexterity, and performance in every professional and personal arena. In Performing Under Pressure, we are introduced to the concept of pressure management, offering a score of empirically tested strategies to help us overcome the sabotaging effects of pressure. Performing Under Pressure addresses the greatest obstacle to our success, whether in a sales presentation, on the golf course, interviewing for a job, or performing onstage at Carnegie Hall. The fact is, no one "rises to the occasion" under pressure and does their best. The perception that some people perform better onstage than in practice is a myth. The reality is pressure makes us do worse, and sometimes leads us to fail utterly. Performing Under Pressure draws on research from over 100,000 people, and features the latest research from neuroscience and from the frontline experiences of Fortune 500 employees and managers, Navy SEALS, Olympic and other elite athletes, and others. It offers 22 specific strategies each of us can use to reduce pressure in our personal and professional lives and allow us to better excel in whatever we do"-- Provided by publisher.
