The Pressure Principle

Dr Dave Alred MBE

Overview

Pressure is a constant — in our struggle to be good parents, excel at school, or meet a deadline. We will never quite rid ourselves of it, but we can learn to harness its power and use it to our advantage.

Lauded as one of the best coaches in the world, Dr. Dave Alred MBE has helped world-renowned athletes and businesses improve at the margins of their performance and redefine the boundaries of their own expectations.

In The Pressure Principle, Alred draws on his coaching experience and insights from animal training and military service to compile eight principles for dealing with pressure effectively. Alred examines how practice can prepare us for pressure, the value of language as a performance tool, and why we 'choke.' Alred also offers strategies to help us build no-limits mindsets and keep pressure from inhibiting our performance when it matters most.

"The skateboarder learns quicker and with less information than the golfer, even though skateboarding is more complicated than golf. They've reframed failure as simple cause and effect and haven't overloaded their brains with too much explicit theoretical information."
