Performing Under Pressure: The Science of Doing your Best When it Matters Most
Pressure is increasing in organizations
you are being asked to do more with less, handle multiple demands, run lean, be more innovative - all while faced with disruption and change.
Dr. JP Pawliw-Fry and his organization have spent 20 years studying over 120,000 people to determine the impact of pressure on performance, emotions, cognition, conversations, and leadership. Thier 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.
