McGraw-Hill authors represent the leading experts in their fields and are dedicated to improving the lives, careers, and interests of readers worldwideFrom Booklist:
Popular management literature is replete with analogies to sports and competition, but Perry and Jamison go for the gold. Perry is founder and president of a company that conducts "adventure training" seminars to foster corporate teambuilding; Jamison is a journalist and coauthor of Winning Ugly: Mental Warfare in Tennis (1993). The "zone" used here is a commonly referred to sports phenomenon--a state of peak performance that is more mental than physical--and the authors argue that those in business can also enter the zone to achieve success. In a section titled "The Opponent," they identify mental management techniques to overcome "performance-inhibiting thought processes," and in a section called "Your Team," they examine the internal resources all individuals possess but tend to neglect over time. Finally, in "Your Game Plan," they lay out steps (ritualize, visualize, optimize, and capitalize) to take to attain the zone. David Rouse
