Whether you are in Education, run Training & Development, HR, Leadership Development, Sales, Customer Service, Organizational Learning, or Success Coaching, you need to ask yourself an essential question:

- How do your employees/clients perform under pressure?

  • Can they summon their talents at will?
  • Can they deliver on a deadline with best results?
  • Can they sleep at night? 

The truth is, nobody does better under pressure. In fact, most of us crumble. Hundreds of studies conducted around the world demonstrate pressure downgrades your "cognitive success tools" (attention, memory, judgment, decision making), disrupts your psychomotor skills, bends your ethics, and adds conflict to your relationships.

Presentations, sales calls, crucial conversations, negotiations, key decisions, etc. all require your employees, clients, and students to perform under pressure.

If you want them to be successful --- teach them pressure management. Consider the return on investment!

  • Unleash Creative Potential. Numerous studies show pressure diminishes creativity, problem solving, and innovation for individuals and teams. 
  • Enhance Morale. Organizations who help their employees handle pressure experience a "Can do" positive climate because employees experience greater support and success, and less absenteeism.
  • Greater Integrity. Pressure at work has been identified as perhaps the leading cause of ethical violations. 
  • Increased Talent Retention. Nobody likes to be under pressure. Companies who don't know how to lessen it are apt to lose their most talented individuals to a pressure-less culture.
  • Greater Sales. Individuals do better in their pressure moment–give more effective presentations, better sales calls, close more sales.
  • Better Employee Health & Lower Health Costs. Many cope with pressure by smoking, drinking, and drugs. Those who handle pressure cope more effectively. 
  • Less Conflict, Better Employee Relationships. People who handle pressure communicate more effectively with each other. Blame and anger often color the communications for those who are under pressure. 
  • More Optimistic Workforce. Numerous studies indicate an optimistic workforce is more enthusiastic, more energized, try harder, and get better results. 
  • A Tenacious Organization. A cohesive team that rallies when behind, turns setbacks into comebacks and finds pathways to success. 

The certification workshop is an intensive two-day program. Short didactic lectures and experiential activities provide participants with the core principles of pressure management and how to teach them to others. Each participant will be required to "perform under pressure" by giving a two minute on the spot presentation to the group.
