People are feeling overwhelmed by pressure – to achieve results, to meet deadlines, to manage difficult relationships, to do more with less, to facilitate and adapt to change. When pressure is not managed, it impacts both our emotional and cognitive brain, diminishing our ability to communicate, manage relationships, make effective decisions, manage change and influence and lead others.
For this Webinar, The Institute for Performance and Learning is partnering with The Institute for Health and Human Potential. For their New York Times bestselling book, Performing Under Pressure, theyconducted a research study of 12,000 people which demonstrated that most people take a haphazard approach to managing pressure. They found that the top 10% performers have plan and strategies they apply to their pressure moments and situations.

1. Key findings from IHHP's research study and their work in the field of Emotional Intelligence, as well as training with athletes, the military and high-performing leaders around the world
