Perform under pressure - guide to mental strength
“Perform under pressure” tackles classic myths and presents a new and refreshing understanding of how to learn to perform. As sports psychology consultants in Team Denmark, the authors have extensive experience and insight into what it takes to deliver absolute top performances when the pressure is greatest.
However, performing under pressure is not reserved for top athletes. More and more people are experiencing having to perform under pressure; in art, in business, in everyday life.
Discomfort. A new outlook on achievement
The word achievement divides people. Some talk about ‘high performance’ as if performance and results are the meaning of life. For others, performance is a bad word associated with notions of people unconsciously running in a treadmill.
Both perceptions are flawed and outdated. Achieving can never be a goal itself. But without performance, we get nowhere. The challenges facing humanity require that we perform at an extraordinary level. Therefore, we must rethink performance and performance management and see it in a more contemporary and meaningful context.

In Search of Mastery
Leaders in ambitious organizations are under pressure. The pace of work is high, new technologies are emerging, there are constant demands for innovation, while things must be sustainable, just around the corner lurks the risk of being “disrupted”. The pace of change has never been higher, and that often means more conflict and more resistance.
New diverse generations have entered the workplace and expect involvement, presence, to be inspired and that things make sense for the community and for the individual. And it must all, of course, take place with an increased bottom line and high well-being
