Stress is directly linked to six of the leading causes of death in the U.S. today, and it seems obvious that environmental, economic and social stresses are not going away. In fact, they're predicted to get worse. For this reason, the vast majority of "stress less" books are concerned with the modern problem of too much stress and how to reduce it. Not this one! Confident Under Pressure is about the advantages of stress, clarifying the critical role that intentionally engaged stress plays in personal and professional development.

Author Rick Lewis makes his living by putting leaders, executives and organizational teams into challenging situations to help them see the habitual ways they respond to stress. He then offers unique guidance in the practice of "stress production," rather than stress reduction – revealing how to make a dynamic turnaround, an attitude of YES to stress.

Confident Under Pressure weaves colorful personal stories, recent neuroscience, the research of human performance experts, and the inspiration of leading business executives into a compelling and lucid argument for moving toward stress, conflict and change in order to become more creative, effective and happy in life, on the way to making our highest contribution in the world. The result is an eminently readable and practical book that anyone can use, at home, on the job, and in one-on-one relationships.
