10 Ways Psychology Can Help

 

Ideal Performance State and Peak Performance for Athletes and Everyone - The Ideal Performance State (IPS) in sports or Peak Performance for athletes is the optimal physiological and pyschological level of arousal measured by muscular tension, heart rate, blood pressure, brain wave patterns and breathing composure that results in peak performance...... IPS is similar to being in the “Flow”. IPS involves all levels of human existence: body, mind, emotions, spirit and creativity.

 

The 16 Desires of Life - Professor Steven Reiss says there's nothing wrong with workaholics, non-curious school children and timid people.

 

While much of society may believe these people have problems that need to be fixed, Reiss said his research suggests they are probably happy just the way they are. They just have personalities that don't fit in with much of society.

 

Identifying and Developing World-Class Performers Nideffer, Sagal, Lowry, Bond

The role of assessment in helping to identify and develop world-class performers has never been more important. The fact that the International Society of Sport Psychology (ISSP) has commissioned a book on the psychological preparation of elite-level athletes indicates two things:

 

Fourth Gold Medal For a Positive Thinker - Before he started his winning streak, Ole was a good, but not great, biathlete by Olympic standards.  What was his bridge to greatness?  Positive thinking........With his coach, he would positively visualize to literally see his wins and stay focused on triumphing - even when he fell.

 

The Making of the Corporate Athlete - If there is one quality that executives seek for themselves and their employees, it is sustained high performance in the face of ever-increasing pressure and rapid change. But the source of such performance is as elusive as the fountain of youth. Management theorists have long sought to identify precisely what makes some people flourish under pressure and others fold. We maintain that they have come up with only partial answers: rich material rewards, the right culture, management by objectives.

 

The problem with most approaches, we believe, is that they deal with people only from the neck up, connecting high performance primarily with cognitive capacity. In recent years there has been a growing focus on the relationship between emotional intelligence and high performance.
