Publisher's Summary

To perform better in any situation - in your career, hobbies, relationships, or in any facet of your life - it is critical to develop psychological skills, which, just like physical abilities, can be taught, learned, and practiced. Both as individuals and as groups, we can tone these psychological skills and use them to heighten awareness, foster talents and technical abilities, and reach peak performance. Mental preparedness and psychological awareness are the keys to thriving in any environment.

Few understand the importance of psychological skills better than the internationally recognized professor Michael Bar-Eli. As both a sports and organizational psychologist for more than 35 years, Bar-Eli has not only researched the science of performance but has also worked directly with elite athletes, coaches, and teams to help them improve their success on the court or field.

Boost! takes the lessons he's learned from sports psychology and translates them for leaders and managers at any stage in their career. With prescriptive advice, Bar-Eli illustrates how anyone can apply these lessons to better support and inspire co-workers and employees and create a sustainable, successful working environment and business.

Serendipity

Narrator Mike Chamberlain could be called 'The Mailman" for his reassuring, predictable delivery. Searching for more of his performance, I found this Gem written by Michael Bar-Eli, a sports psychologist with decades of dedicated and insightful research. Here is the key: Micky -as he is called, has a superlative ability to synthesize his decades of study into a practical rainbow of skills, that, with deliberate practice and awareness can bring a, well, Boost in Performance. An edge in any field. Highly recommended.
