Shows how to channel stress at work into positive energy to drive skills and performance capacity to new levels
For well over twenty years, Loehr has been teaching world-class athletes and businesspeople that exposure to stress is the most powerful stimulus for personal growth. You grow the most when you're pushed the most - getting the client everyone said would be impossible to land; launching a new product in record time; achieving the impossible sales goal you and your team had to meet. These and other stressful events drive your skills and performance capacity to new levels.The secret of success is understanding how to respond to stress. The boss from hell or the impossible goals aren't what's tearing you apart, but rather your emotional response to these and other events. Jim Loehr's practical program shows how to bring all the stuff that's driving you crazy under control and make it work for you by showing how to attain a better balance between your personal and professional life, restoring a vital sense of harmony and rhythm; achieve new levels of physical, mental, and emotional flexibility that powerfully protect you when the storms of business descend; use the rituals of success - the eating, thinking, sleeping, planning, and exercise habits - that enhance your ability to respond to stress; achieve control of your emotions through precision thinking and acting; learn the mental preparation skills that enhance your ability to perform on demand regardless of circumstances; and deepen your capacity to expand and recover energy, the core of personal effectiveness and response.
