Paul Sullivan explains ‘clutch,’ the ability to thrive in high-stress conditions
What do Mark Stevens, Bernie Marcus, and Jamie Dimon have in common besides wads of cash and crazy success? In his new book, Clutch: Why Some People Excel Under Pressure and Others Don’t, New York Times columnist Paul Sullivan argues that under extreme pressure, these business titans didn’t crack. In fact, they excelled. Drawing on years of research and recent examples like the financial crisis, Sullivan takes a look at the traits that make people across various fields succeed under high-stress conditions, which he refers to as “clutch,” while others choke. He spoke to NEWSWEEK’s Nayeli Rodriguez about what separates the two.
Paul Sullivan will present as a part of Linkage’s Thought Leader Series on Why Some People Excel under Pressure and Some Don’t on December 8. This presentation will be recorded and made available on-demand after the live event.
Clutch is the ultimate guide to understanding high achievement and to stepping up your own game.
