When we talk about pressure we usually conjure up negative images – being pressured into something, feeling the weight of pressure. Even the dictionary definition of “pressure” focuses on coercion and intimidation. And who could forget Queen and David Bowie singing about pressure being the force that burns a building down, splits a family in two, puts people on streets.
But is this the whole story? In this episode we are joined by Dane Jensen, CEO of Third Factor and an expert on pressure. He unpacks what pressure is, how it differs from stress and how we can harness pressure to our benefit – individually and in our organisations. Dane has worked with thousands of high performers including top business leaders and executives, world-class athletes, Navy SEALs, politicians, and even busy parents. If you want to understand how pressure is experienced differently for everyone and what you can do to excel during difficult moments or challenges in your life then this extended episode is just for you.
