Overview

You're On! Consulting for Peak Performance provides guidance and advice on counseling performing clients so that they achieve their best. Whether they are what one thinks of traditionally as performers, such as dancers, actors, or musicians, or are people who work in jobs that require performance of any sort, such as lawyers, surgeons, police, and executives, clients in these fields face similar tasks in that they must overcome stress, find focus, and work in a realm where training gives way to instinct in the moment of performance. In their effort to understand what makes a great performer, the authors have compiled interviews with people in numerous performing fields. To answer the question of how consultants can help performers, the authors also interviewed counselors and psychologists who are experienced performance consultants. This book provides a detailed account of how to provide guidance toward achieving peak performance. Packed with practical information on performance consulting and illustrated with vivid and engrossing quotations from the authors' interviews, this book is a must-read for performance consultants, executive coaches, and any therapist or counselor who seeks to enter this burgeoning field.
