It is often said that there are only two certainties in this world: death and taxes. Dane Jensen would argue that there's a third: pressure. Pressure is an inevitable part of the human journey - of navigating work and family, pursuing goals, encountering setbacks, and growing. Dane has spent his career understanding pressure - what creates it, why it can lead to breakdowns, and what we can learn from those who channel pressure to breakthroughs. His research at the intersection of elite sport, academia, business, and Government has produced a straightforward equation for understanding pressure, and a series of habits that high performers use to perform and find joy under pressure. You'll learn: • The three components of the ‘pressure equation': every high-pressure situation comes from a combination of three factors. Understanding these factors is the first step to harnessing the power of pressure. Once you can diagnose the root causes of pressure, you can begin to act. • How to nail your peak pressure moments: in peak pressure moments like big presentations, exams, interviews or performances, our bodies are wired in ways that can sabotage us. We tense up, get tunnel vision, and miss key information. You'll discover three habits you can build to escape the traps of biology and perform to your peak when it matters most. • How to thrive over the long haul: the pressure of enduring a pandemic, tackling a major, multi-year project, or balancing work with young children is different than nailing a big sales call. People who understand how to perform under peak pressure and stay motivated through the long haul are unstoppable. Learning and mastering these skills will allow you to not only take advantage of the key moments that can define your career, but also to find joy along the journey of a high-pressure life.
