“Pressure is a word that is misused in our vocabulary. When you start thinking of pressure, it’s because you’ve started to think of failure.”
Tommy Lasorda, LA Dodgers Coach.
There is no such thing as pressure.
It is one of the great secrets in sport psychology that even the professionals often get wrong. Most sport psychologists and coaches talk about ‘managing pressure’, which makes the mistake of assuming that it exists. It doesn’t exist, so managing it is a non-sense. In fact, by trying to manage it, we start to believe it might be real.
This session identifies ways that coaches and managers in business and sport can help their teams to perform in any situation.
