Former Navy Ace Offers Unique Perspective on Decision Making Based on TOPGUN Experience

March 14, 2013

Triple Nickel Press has released Peak Performance Under Pressure, a book that describes how author Bill Driscoll’s own life-or-death aerial dogfights–and the preparation for them–can help guide high-risk corporate decisions in the modern workplace.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind., March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Leaders will discover similarities between a fighter pilot’s fierce mentality and the cutthroat world of contemporary business. With an exclusive foreword by Senator John McCain, Peak Performance Under Pressure reinforces the consistent patterns underlying exceptional performance under pressure, informed by interviews with over 200 senior executives and 26 Navy Aces. Leaders will be challenged to re-examine how to make critical decisions under intense pressure; build strong, dedicated teams; maintain steadfast focus on their mission; and model the integrity and constancy they expect from their staffs while facing rapidly changing problems.

Driscoll reveals his formula for success under pressure–the same formula that guided him through 170 combat missions, 5,200 jet dogfights, and 510 aircraft carrier landings as an Ace fighter pilot. From improving self-discipline to expanding one’s sphere of influence, the skills learned in Peak Performance Under Pressure help readers become more efficient decision makers, in any environment and under any level of pressure.

“All pilots know well the only rule in a dogfight: there are no rules. In Peak Performance Under Pressure, Bill allows readers a look inside the cockpit during his combat dogfights and offers a revealing set of guidelines for professional and personal success from one of the country’s finest Fighter Aces.” -John McCain, US Senator

Since 1995, Driscoll has served as a business consultant for many companies around the United States. He is in constant demand for his unique motivation and leadership presentations. Driscoll earned a bachelor of arts from Stonehill College and a master of science from the University of Southern California.
