It’s a common story…
Managing Directors that are brilliant behind closed doors and are left feeling lost when the pressure comes on.
An athlete hit PB’s in training then misses out at competition time
A business owner is fantastic at delivering their offer and struggles and is overwhelmed on knowing how to run their business.
Pressure is a funny thing – whether you are an elite athlete, a senior business leader or a team within either. Your ability to deliver a result is entirely dependent on your handling of the situation and very little to do with skill, training and preparation you put in.
And particularly in the workplace where the pressures are constantly changing.
The management role is more complicated and with more pressures than it has ever been. Gone are the days when management was about running a business – it is now all about running a company – with all the “people challenges” board pressures and everything else that involves.
Tie that into increasingly competitive, challenging and uncertain markets and it is no wonder that people battle to deliver at the level they KNOW and have proved they can.
