1. January 18, 2011 presentation at Northern Illinois University, Naperville, IL. Hosted by Chicago Booth School of Business Entrepreneurial Roundtable. Video by Stone Cliff Productions, Inc.

    Sian Beilock, one of the foremost experts on the brain science behind performance under stress, explains why we "choke" under pressure as well as how we make the perfect golf swing, difficult math calculation, or business presentation look easy.

    Beilock will give an overview of what psychological and brain science says about how we get to be the best and will then detail how and why our performance sometimes goes awry when there is the utmost pressure to succeed. She unpacks the science behind why some people excel and others fail to perform at a high level when the stakes are high in activities ranging from making that elusive 6-foot putt when everyone is watching, to taking the SAT, to pitching to a room full of clients.

    Linking body and mind closer than ever before, Beilock provides counter-intuitive revelations about intelligence and performance. She also gives practical advice about ways to not choke in high-pressure situations, and how to succeed brilliantly when it matters most.

    Her first book, "CHOKE: What the Secrets of the Brain Reveal about Getting it Right When You Have to" (Free Press) was published in the Fall of 2010.

    Sian Beilock is a tenured psychology professor at the University of Chicago. Sian's research is routinely covered in media (including CNN, The New York Times, NPR, Wall Street Journal) and she was highlighted as one of four "Rising Stars" across all academic disciplines by the Chronicle of Higher Education in 2005 and chosen as on of twenty-five "Women to Watch" by Crain's Chicago Business Magazine in 2007.

    Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD, is internationally known for his work as a scientist, writer, and mindfulness meditation teacher engaged in bringing mindfulness practices, especially mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), into the mainstream of medicine and society. He is professor of medicine emeritus at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, where he was founding executive director of the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society, and founder (in 1979) and former director of its world-renowned Stress Reduction Clinic. Prominently featured in the Bill Moyer’s PBS special Healing and the Mind in 1993, the clinic and its research has continually demonstrated that most participants in its programs achieve long-lasting improvements in both physical and psychological symptoms, as well as major positive changes in health attitudes and behaviors. More than 200 medical institutions nationwide and abroad now use the clinic’s mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) model to teach mindfulness meditation.

    Jon Kabat-Zinn received his doctorate in molecular biology from MIT in 1971 with the Nobel Laureate in physiology and medicine, Salvador Luria. Kabat-Zinn’s research between 1979 and 2002 focused on mind/body interactions for healing; on various clinical applications of mindfulness meditation training for people with chronic pain and/or stress-related disorders; on the effects of mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) on the brain and how it processes emotions, particularly under stress, and on the immune system; and on the use and effects of mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) and mindfulness meditation with women with breast cancer and men with prostate cancer; on patients undergoing bone marrow transplant; with prison inmates and staff; in multicultural settings; and on stress in various corporate settings and work environments.

    Jon Kabat-Zinn is a Founding Fellow of the Fetzer Institute, a Fellow of the Society of Behavioral Medicine, and the founding convener of the Consortium of Academic Health Centers for Integrative Medicine, a network of deans, chancellors, and faculty at major United States medical schools engaged at the creative edges of mind/body and integrative medicine. He also serves on the board of the Mind and Life Institute, a group that organizes dialogues between the Dalai Lama and Western scientists and scholars to promote deeper understanding and harnessing, for beneficial purposes, different ways of knowing and probing the nature of the mind, emotions, and reality.

    Jon Kabat-Zinn is author of Full Catastrophe Living; Wherever You Go, There You Are; and Coming to Our Senses. He is also coauthor, with his wife Myla, of Everyday Blessings.
