What's the most pressure you've ever been under? How did you react? Dane Jensen's book The Power of Pressure unpacks the different types of pressure and explains how we can use it to our advantage.

Dane Jensen is the CEO of Third Factor, an acclaimed speaker, an instructor at Queen’s University and the University of North Carolina, a regular contributor to the Harvard Business Review and author of The Power of Pressure.



In this episode of Chatter That Matters, Dane shares what he learned about pressure from discussions with Olympic athletes, Navy SEALS, overworked managers and busy parents. He walks listeners through the physiological responses to pressure and how it’s an essential input into high performance.

While not without its challenges, pressure can be used to your advantage when you understand its patterns and harness it as fuel to thrive.

Every week, Marketing Hall of Legends and Canadian Marketing and PR Hall of Fame inductee Tony Chapman hosts Chatter That Matters. In each episode, Tony chats with an inspiring person with the courage and conviction to overcome circumstances, chase their dreams, and change the world for the better.
