The High Performance Mindset at Work, Home and Life

Michael Bernard’s new book is based on his many years of consulting and coaching at sporting clubs (Michael was the first sport psychologist for Collingwood Football Club), financial organisations (AMP), schools (Founder, You Can Do It! Education) and with many, many parents, teachers and students. Michael reveals what has been learnt about how people operate at their best and why and when they do not.

For the first time, he shows what the latest research from positive psychology, social emotional learning, Rational Emotive and Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy says about the psychological architecture of the high performing mindset. Michael discusses and illustrates with case studies the limits and benefits of positivity including the need to become aware of and address our internal blocks that hinder our desire to be a high performer. Full of practical suggestions (and advice), the book is a must read for those wanting to take the next step and cope in today’s world.

Michael's knowledge and skills in the areas of adult learning and development, particularly in psychology, provided invaluable input into the shaping of targeted professional development at the Bastow Institute of Educational Leadership. In my role as a learning designer, I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated Michael's insights and expertise, as well as his well thought out and sequenced learning, as we worked on ensuring the success of the course. I would highly recommend Michael for any work involving the development of leaders leading to improved organisational outcomes.
