World Cup 2018 – the pressure of penalties

We’ve heard many times from football managers that “you can’t train for penalties” as they’re akin to a lottery, but the noises coming from Gareth Southgate and the team this year seem to be very different. Possibly Southgate’s past or the consistent pressure due to England’s penalty shoot-out record has made them take note.

How we gauge pressure has changed over the last 20 years: Professional sports people

When Gazing began in 1998, the world was very different; dial-up modems still screeched through phone lines, France were poised to win the World Cup and NASA found water on the moon. A less obvious change is in the attitudes to mental skills training; now everyone from professional athletes to sales departments know the benefits of the right mental approach on performance, but the core principles remain the same and we’ve been helping businesses see the upside for two decades! We’ve worked in incredibly diverse fields to help people perform under internal and external pressure and one of the most fascinating areas where these skills can make a difference is professional sports.

Performing under pressure in a rapidly changing world

It’s 2018 – which means we’re celebrating 20 years of Gazing Performance Systems! Back in 1998, our modern lives would’ve looked so futuristic, we’d never have believed they were just around the corner! Mobiles were bulky with tiny green LCD screens, ‘Googol’ was a mathematical feature and VHS was King, as DVDs were only just invented.

The simple value of a one page approach

We all know that feeling, when you buy something and the instruction manual is akin to War and Peace – who doesn’t just throw it down and try to work it out themselves? The same can be said for any plan or strategy, the longer it becomes the more complicated it gets and whilst complexity is often seen to make things look more important, it can lead to poor execution and increased pressure.

Businesses must innovate but technology isn’t enough

Businesses are spending millions on new software and digital technologies, transforming operations and bringing them into the 21st Century. Once the investment is made, achieving a solid return on your outlay and ensuring the wider rewards are reaped, requires company wide effort. Technology on its own won’t create a drastic shift in business, there are three key aspects to be realised first:
1. Tools – finding the right technology for your business
2. Training and skills – ensuring that your employees have the skills and training to use the tools effectively
3. Management and direction – focusing the management team to lead by example

England and the Ashes – don’t think about ‘pink elephants’

As the Ashes series gets going this year the spectre of the England team’s previous mental collapses has loomed large. There is little debate that the ashes series in Australia are close to the top of the sporting pile, at least in terms of pressure on performance and the white hot environment created by Australian media, crowds and their players, not to mention the high expectations that the England team travel with from home. But this year it seems a lot of media and pundit input has been focused on what England must not do IE. don’t give your wicket away, don’t be intimidated or don’t lose 4/5 wickets in a session! All seemingly good advice, however it feels like the comment has been overly focused on events and outcomes that the England team do not want to happen. Much like the age-old golfing advice ‘make sure you don’t hit your ball in the water’.

Generating sales excellence through sales enablement

Three common flaws in Sales Enablement efforts

The sales team is often viewed as the bedrock of a business, without them there is no revenue! So organisations nowadays often invest in their own sales enablement strategy and team to provide much needed support for their salespeople in terms of training, systems and tools and field support when appropriate. But it is often this sales enablement strategy and the department’s approach that has the most visible flaws. There are three issues which are we find are particularly common:

Red To Blue Image

"The techniques that we learnt from Gazing form the backbone to our department. The team believe in it and use it everyday. It has had a significant impact on the performance of the team, not only in terms of sales, where the numbers have gone up, but the team feels less stressed too".
Ian Roberts, Head of Avis Sales Direct, AVIS

“Gazing gives us a concise structure that we can always go back to; something we can refer to, in good times or when things are a little more difficult. In a multicultural business, the Gazing approach is invaluable because it gives us a common language, a shared understanding”
Andy Hurt, General Manager, Xerox Emirates

“The Gazing training our leadership team just completed is fantastic. By far the most relevant sales management training I have done”
Sales Director, OpenText

"My job as coach is not just to make them better at passing and tackling - as rugby players - but better people too. The red to blue training brought about a series of tactics which can transcend sport, it has given the boys a common-sense way of approaching things, whether they’re on the pitch, in an exam or just going about their everyday lives.”
Jim Kottler Richmond Rugby Club

"Gazing performance provided me with a simple set of tools that helped and continues to help me perform under pressure. Knowing what I can control in any given situation combined with situational planning and the control of attention to produce the right mind set has resulted in continued improvement in performance both in my professional and personal life.”
Dan Pollen, Teacher

"At Teligent we have used Gazing’s human performance model to align our people and our processes to the activities that really make a difference to our business performance. Our objectives are clear and measurable. The model is simple and workable”
Mark Pilgrim Managing Director, Teligent
