How to be Clutch (and Avoid Choking)


This week marks the conclusion of the NHL Stanley Cup Finals and the start of the NBA Finals and MLB playoffs. We’ve seen (and are sure to see more) spectacular performances and unfortunate collapses. On this episode of The Growth Equation Podcast, Brad and Steve discuss what we can do to be clutch and avoid choking when the stakes are high. The pair discuss what it means to be clutch and how to prepare for high-pressure events — whether on the track, behind the microphone or in the boardroom. Brad and Steve also share strategies to rescue ourselves when we do choke and what sports psychology gets wrong on this topic.
