Overview

Peak performances should not be left to chance. Rather than hoping that you will perform at your best, why not engineer your performance?

Peak Performance Every Time incorporates principles from sport psychology and performance coaching and applies these to all areas of life. Using illustrations and real-world examples from top athletes and business executives, it focuses on the three main components that underpin performance:

  • Confidence
  • Motivation
  • Focus.

As well as offering practical strategies to help the reader achieve their optimal mindset, it also explains how to coach others to perform to their potential. Throughout, the book is underpinned by theoretical frameworks, literature and research findings and will be invaluable to anyone trying to reach their full potential, in particular athletes, coaches, managers and executives. It may also be of interest to sports psychology, management and business students.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book offers psychologist, coach, performer, and student an engaging treaty on how to achieve peak performance via the focus and application of three key ingredients. This is presented at pace that is both lively and brisk, yet theoretically underpinned and informed via a doing psychology perspective which the author should be applauded for." - John K. Parker, University of Gloucestershire, UK, in Sport & Exercise Psychology Review

"I loved reading and using the performance tools in Peak Performance. The eclectic range of experts who have used them, confirmed that Simon has found a key set of success principles that anyone can use to maximise their own personal performance. Reading the book felt like a world class performance psychology session that I could pick up whenever needed." - Chris Cook, double Commonwealth champion and Olympic swimmer

"A very important and inspirational book for anyone seeking to achieve peak performance." - Mark Nesti, Reader in Sport Psychology, Liverpool John Moores University, UK
