THE POWER OF PRESSURE

On this episode of the Inspiring Great Leaders Podcast, Craig Johns speaks with Dane Jensen about The Power of Pressure, why pressure isn’t the problem it’s the solution, high stakes pressure moments and being pressure ambidextrous. 

We also delve into leading ourselves before others, how to navigate pressure for the long-haul, what happens when pressure builds, the discipline of active awareness of pressure and the unconscious competency of being in a flow state.

He is an instructor at the Smith School of Business at Queen’s University and is affiliate faculty with the UNC Executive Development at the Kenan-Flagler Business School at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In his work at Third Factor he has had exposure to thousands of high performers—from Olympic gold medallists to Navy SEALs, politicians, executives and busy parents, which has led to his newly released book, The Power of Pressure. 

Dane talks about: 

  • The high-pressure parent moment that made his heart stop. 
  • Why pressure isn’t the problem it’s the solution. 
  • The pressure equation and how to use them for a positive outcome.  
  • Is pressure just an internal thing?

  • What happens to our body under pressure? 
  • The Power Of Pressure.
  • Differences in short term peak pressure vs long-term pressure. 
  • Flow and unconscious competence. 
  • The differences in pressure between business leaders, NAVY Seals and Olympic athletes in how they utilise pressure to increase their performance. 
  • Pressure follows patterns and develops in predictable ways. 
  • How we can power through “peak pressure moments”? 
  • Nailing the peak pressure moments that can make or break a big sale, a crucial meeting, or define a career. 
  • The importance of collaboration and communication in successful leadership.
  • The ability to be less like a thermometer and more like a thermostat.
