From the President

I recently came upon an Instagram post from world-class track sprinter Tianna Bartoletta (@tianna.bartoletta). She was preparing for her first track meet in quite a while. To tune up, she went to see her mental skills expert, Josh Lifrak, M.S., and he asked her what her goal was. She said, “to execute under pressure.” He corrected her and said, “There is no pressure, though. What you want is to execute under judgement.”

Ever since seeing this post, I haven’t been able to get this quote out of my mind. If, as marketing and business development professionals, we can help our internal teams minimize the pressure they put on themselves and instead help them perform their best while under judgement, we should be able to help them overcome whatever professional hurdles they may be facing.

I hope you, too, are inspired by this idea to continue to improve your performance...but without the pressure. 

GCSMPS is here to help you improve and grow. The CPSM study group kicks off tonight. If you haven’t already, investigate what it takes to earn this invaluable certification. Also, I hope you'll join us for our upcoming Leadership Workshop with Glenn Sharp, and for our annual Infrastructure Panel. Everything is happening in the first half of the month, so make sure you've reserved your spots! More info can be found below and on the GCSMPS website

Here's to a pressure-free February full of growth and new hope. 


Melanie Pliskin, CPSM
GCSMPS President
