Jan  Mayer - When It Really Matters


Insights from elite sports

Summoning supreme performance when needed, recognising and actualising opportunities – and this under stress and at the highest tension. What applies to success in top-level athletics is just as applicable to the challenges of work and everyday life.

Jan Mayer is the sports psychologist of the Bundesliga football team TSG Hoffenheim. His concept for achieving top performances in competitive sports has over many years been well proven. He explains how not only athletes but anyone can acquire the art of the moment, so that we can depend on ourselves and our competence at any time. And he shows how his strategy functions in everyday life. Thanks to this science-based method, we can overcome self-doubt and remain confident and convincing even under high stress. Here is a book for those who want to achieve their best performance when it matters most!

• Refreshingly innovative: the sports psychologist reveals how to deal with stress and optimise our performance

• Complex psychological perspectives finely and simply presented

• Findings from professional sports

• Overcoming fear of examinations and giving speeches, and getting the best out of oneself

"Mayer gives valuable tips on how we can effectively develop our thinking and behaviour in order to perform optimally."
