How the Psychology of Sports Can Enhance your Performance in Management and Work

Michael Bar-Eli

  • Emphasizes the sometimes hidden, often over-looked, psychological forces that drive human performance, from stress and arousal to motivation, aspiration to self-confidence, decision processes and creativity to social dynamics, and mental preparation to morality
  • Drawing on the author's original research, personal stories, and practical experience in sports, the book offers conclusions and insights about broader performance, while showing how individuals, organizations, and teams can apply these insights to any task or endeavor
  • Highlights findings known by elite athletes that are universally applicable, particularly in competitive, stressful, or high-stake business situations
  • Features invaluable lessons for executives, middle managers, directors, and team leaders - plus business professionals aspiring to these roles - who want to not only improve their individual performance, but who also want to inspire their employees and contribute to the overall success of their organizations or teams
