"John Baldoni has done the world a favor by introducing the language of grace into our conversation about leadership. I was a huge fan of his wonderful book Grace, and Grace Under Pressure continues this tradition, showing why grace is most effective in times of maximum pressure. The ability to exhibit courage and calm in our most challenging moments is precisely what inspires others to trust us, giving them the confidence to stay engaged when the going gets rough.

Garry Ridge, the Culture Coach and retired CEO of the WD-40 Company
"With the spotlight shined on modern-day business leaders, there's a greater demand to do more than be savvy and apply business acumen. Today's leaders are expected to care and act out of concern not just for the company and its employees but to grasp how their role affects the greater welfare of all. Grace Under Pressure by John Baldoni shows us how to lead with courage, conviction, and compassion, especially in times of stress and urgency."
Donald Altman, author of The Mindfulness Toolbox, Simply Mindful, and Clearing Emotional Clutter
"John Baldoni's new book is a beautiful example of combining science, practice, real-life examples, and deep humanity to offer ways for a modern leader to lead. I particularly like John’s combining “taking care of self” with the aspects of taking care of people and preparing for the future. The Considerations that anchor each chapter are great coaching questions and wonderful ones to ponder and resolve. Grace Under Pressure is an easy read and yet leaves you with great reflections and practical tools to move forward."
