Mastering the Winds of Change: Peak Performers Reveal How to Stay on Top in Times of Turmoil
“An engaging and delightful treatment of the serious challenges of mastering change. Prescriptive without being clinical, and packed with illustrative cases from proven peak performers; a book that can help enable anyone to successfully ride the winds of change.”
– Fred A. Gorden, Major General, U.S. Army; Former Commander of U.S. Military Academy – West Point
Drawing on his years of experience in guiding organizations and individuals through times of stress and change, corporate consultant and psychotherapist Erik Olesen interviewed 40 peak performers and surveyed 120 others. Now he reveals their secrets in this fascinating book.
These peak performers discuss their strategies for mastering pressure-packed change, and they illustrate a proven, step-by-step system for transforming tough situations into the raw material for increased success and happiness.

The Little Sailboat and The Big Storm offers a positive, contemporary message to children (and parents) about meeting challenges in a rapidly changing world. It presents proven, positive psychological principles in an exciting story. The self-help strategies are drawn from ground-breaking research on optimism and self-confidence, and the author’s research on peak performers during times of stressful change.
