Timothy Gallwey burst upon the scene twenty years ago with his revolutionary approach to excellence in sports. His bestselling books The Inner Game of Tennis and The Inner Game of Golf, with over one million copies in print, changed the way we think about learning and coaching. But the Inner Game that Gallwey discovered on the tennis court is about more than learning a better backhand; it is about learning how to learn, a critical skill that, in this case, separates the productive, satisfied employee from the rest of the pack. For the past twenty years Gallwey has taken his Inner Game expertise to many of America's top companies, including AT&T, Coca-Cola, Apple, and IBM, to teach their managers and employees how to gain better access to their own internal resources.
What inner obstacles is Gallwey talking about? Fear of failure, resistance to change, procrastination, stagnation, doubt, and boredom, to name a few. Gallwey shows you how to tap into your natural potential for learning, performance, and enjoyment so that any job, no matter how long you've been doing it or how little you think there is to learn about it, can become an opportunity to sharpen skills, increase pleasure, and heighten awareness. And if your work environment has been turned on its ear by Internet technology, reorganization, and rapidly accelerating change, this book offers a way to steer a confident course while navigating your way toward personal and professional goals.
The Inner Game of Work teaches you the difference between a rote performance and a rewarding one. It teaches you how to stop working in the conformity mode and start working in the mobility mode. It shows how having a great coach can make as much difference in the boardroom as on the basketball court-- and Gallwey teaches you how to find that coach and, equally important, how to become one. The Inner Game of Work challenges you to reexamine your fundamental motivations for going to work in the morning and your definitions of work once you're there. It will ask you to reassess the way you make changes and teach you to look at work in a radically new way.
"Ever since The Inner Game of Tennis, I've been fascinated and have personally benefitted by the incredibly empowering insights flowing out of Gallwey's self-one/self-two analysis. This latest book applies this liberating analogy to work inspiring all of us to relax and trust our true self."
--Stephen R. Covey, author of 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
In precise, easy to understand language, Green and Gallwey explain how natural skills can be nurtured and enhanced, and through a series of special exercises they demonstrate the ways in which musicians can achieve exact intonation, artistic phrasing, and improved technique.

A methodology with a proven track record, The Inner Game of Music will be invaluable to anyone seriously interested in music, whether professional or amateur, composer,performer, or simply an appreciative listener.
Stress attacks every aspect of our well-being. Gallwey explains how negative self-talk undermines us, making us believe that pressure is inevitable and that other people’s expectations are paramount–which leaves us feeling helpless and unhappy. But as Gallwey shows, we have the means to build a shield against stress with our abilities to take childlike pleasure in learning new skills, to properly and healthily rest and relax, and to trust in our own good judgment. With his trademark mix of case histories and interactive worksheets, Gallwey helps us to tap into these inner strengths, giving us these invaluable tools:
• the STOP technique: Learn how to Step back, Think, Organize, and Proceed with a more conscious choice process, even in the most chaotic circumstances.
• the Attitude tool: If you’re feeling resentment, try gratitude.
• the Magic Pen: Develop the ability to open up your intuition and wisdom.
• the Transpose exercise: Imagine what the other person thinks, feels, wants–and develop empathy, kindness, and better relationship skills.
• the PLE triangle: Use your goals for Performance, Learning, and Experience to redefine success and enhance enjoyment.
Now you don’t have to be a champion athlete–or an athlete at all–to keep your life in perspective and your performance at its peak. A one-of-a kind guide, The Inner Game of Stress allows anyone to get in the game and win.

"Li e reli O Jogo Interior por quase quatro décadas. Essencialmente, ele trata de preencher a lacuna existente entre o Potencial e o Desempenho de um indivíduo..."
– Atul Gawande – The New York Times
"O livro já vendeu mais de um milhão de cópias e foi o responsável por impulsionar o estilo que hoje conhecemos popularmente por 'Jogo Mental'. Ele oferece um método revolucionário de aprender e refletir sobre o jogo."
– Harvard Tennis News
Em vez de propor técnicas de jogo, este livro se concentra no fato de que todo jogo é composto por duas partes: exterior e interior.
O jogo exterior é disputado contra os oponentes e é repleto de eventos inesperados; já o interior acontece dentro da mente do jogador, sendo seus principais obstáculos: a insegurança e a ansiedade.
Com o elevado nível técnico e preparo físico dos jogadores da atualidade, o Jogo Interior é muitas vezes o fator decisivo para colocar o troféu de um Grand Slam nas mãos de um jogador. Trata-se de psicologia esportiva.
Este brilhante livro, chamado por Billie Jean King (detentora de 39 títulos de Grand Slams) de a Bíblia Do Tênis, traz as teorias de Gallwey sobre concentração, eliminação de vícios de jogo, autoconfiança dentro da quadra e consciência individual.
A filosofia aqui apresentada transcende o mundo esportivo e se estende para os negócios, para melhoria de performance, para um novo estilo de vida.
Neste livro você verá como é possível:
- concentrar a mente para dominar o nervosismo, a insegurança e as distrações;
- descobrir o estado de "concentração relaxada", que proporciona o seu melhor desempenho;
- aprimorar sua técnica por meio da prática inteligente, e utilizar os conhecimentos adquiridos durante um jogo e assim, vencer dentro e fora das quadras.
