Inside Out: Elite Performance from Within by Charlie Unwin
In any high-pressure environment, from special operations to the operating theatre, you can divide people into two groups – those who control their performance from the inside out, and those whose performance is controlled from the outside in. In Inside Out, Charlie Unwin, one of the world’s leading performance psychologists, explains the techniques that enable the elite to perform at their best under immense pressure. It reveals how they think, prepare and perform, taking you inside the highly unpredictable modern battlefield, the chaos of the catwalk, the operating theatre, the stadium, the maximum-security prison and the opera house. Whatever the challenge, whether life-or-death, or simply chasing a promotion at work, we are all susceptible to becoming ‘outside in’ – when you start paying more attention to the thought of not messing up than the process of doing something well. The ‘Inside Out’ method helps you gain control so that you can have a greater impact. It’s about mindset, learning new skills, maintaining confidence and sustaining great results over time.
