The ability to perform your best when it mattersmost is a skill anyone can learn. A well-knownsports psychologist, Julie Ness Bell, Ph.D., hastrained some of the world’s greatest athletes, fromprofessional golfers and tennis stars to footballteams and basketball pros. She’s learned that theathlete’s ability to perform under extreme stressis predominantly mental—not physical—and thebasic principles of peak performance are the samefor everyone, whether you’re a corporate leader,team player, or small business owner.

Principle #1: Your mind is powerful.
Principle #2: You control your mind.
Principle #3: You have a choice inevery situation.

Think about it. Now think again. That’s the secretbehind Performance Intelligence at Work, a provenmethod of unblocking the obstacles in your brain—and unlocking “The Mind of a Champion.”

Performance Intelligence works for athletes, and itwill work for you, too. Throughout the book, Bellprovides specific examples from her vast coachingexperiences and relates them to the corporate playingfield.

Each chapter ends with a “Business LeaderHuddle” to help you put each principle into action. You will learn how to recognize your old waysof thinking, refocus your thoughts on a goal, andestablish new routines to make it happen. Insteadof negative “what-not-to-do” thinking (I will notprocrastinate), you’ll be able to retrain your brainusing proactive “what-to-do” thinking (I will finishthis task today).

Soon you’ll be performing at higherlevels than you ever thought possible—with awinning mindset you never knew you had.
