Performing under pressure:
Developing the thinking and attitudes that cultivates elite performance

In every arena of life, pressure is a given. It may or may not be constant, but we know it and feel it when it’s there. For most of us, pressure tends to create stress, uncertainty and even fear as we worry about consequences. The times when the consequences are very, very high can be when we most feel this common thing known as pressure.

We experience this in business, in sport and in our personal lives.

So when our top performing athletes are exposed to the extreme challenges of competition at an international level, public scrutiny and the need to be the best - how do they handle the pressure?

On 25th October, Steve Hansen, Eric Murray, Sophie Pascoe and Jimmy Spithill will be revealing their most personal experiences of performing under pressure – and what they have learned to achieve outstanding results.
