Pursuing functional innovation in performance psychology.
Geir Jordet, PhD, is Professor at the Norwegian School of Sport Sciences where he conducts research and teaches psychology and elite football (soccer) performance. His most extensive research interests involve performing under extreme pressure, cognitive and perceptual underpinnings of decision making, and talent development/effective learning. A principal aim in all projects is to identify the primary, psychologically related, on-pitch behaviors that drive football match performance.
Jordet’s work is published in leading sport science and psychology journals, and his research regularly appears in major media outlets such as New York Times, Wall street journal, London Times, the Guardian, BBC, and Spiegel.
In addition, Jordet operates as a performance psychology consultant in professional football. Over the past 20 years, he has advised many of the leading football organizations and clubs all over Europe.
