    REPOST: From Mandela to Mars – Lessons From Isolation

    REPOST: From Mandela to Mars – Lessons From Isolation

    Returning to our normal lives still feels like a long way off for many of us facing lockdown extensions. So how can we learn from those who have coped in true isolation? Jeremy reflects over his conversations with anti-apartheid campaigners Ahmed Kathrada and Denis Goldberg, who were imprisoned alongside Nelson Mandela for over 20 years. We also hear key insights from Professor Gro Sandal, an expert in the psychology of extreme environments such as the International Space Station and the mindset needed for an 18-month round trip to Mars. Balancing realism and optimism is essential to navigating challenging times and as we continue the Covid-19 lockdown, these compelling insights foster our inner resilience and hope.
    Sadly Denis Goldberg passed away on 29th April 2020 aged 87. Both his and Ahmed Kathrada's story of optimism and resilience will live on.

Amazing Inspiration

I recently found this podcast and it’s my new source of inspiration. The format is very refreshing and the guests span business, sport and other high achievers. Jeremy packs every episode with practical take-aways. Thank you.

The art of conversation

Jeremy has a unique ability to get to the heart of a matter in a warm and friendly way. The insights gleaned from the experts are highly practical and thought provoking. A master of his art and subject knowledge.

Informative, Actionable and Entertaining

I’ve recently started binge-listening through the back catalogue of episodes and have picked up so many insightful and properly actionable takeaways that I’ve been able to put into play with my teams.

I joined the membership site with that free code and have actually started paying as the content on there is great to watch during a lunch break. Its like having Jeremy as my own personal coach encouraging me on and being the helpful advisor telling me what to do with either a difficult situation or team member.

So yeah, great site and podcast - and it’s entertaining too! There’s always a bit of a pun or something to raise a wry smile. Keep up the good work Jeremy - here’s to being number one in Barbados next!
