This is the Taming Tigers podcast - with Jim Lawless and Stuart Williams.


In this exciting time to be alive, we must adapt to changes all around us if we are to thrive. We also 
want to create our own changes: from getting healthy to achieving a new job or property. 


Adaptation and resilience building are not mysterious arts. They are learnable skills that should be 
taught at school!


Jim tested his Taming Tigers framework for radical adaptation personally. Twice. He transitioned 
from non-riding, unfit consultant to televised jockey within 12 months of starting learning to ride. He 
became the first Briton to freedive deeper than 100m in 8 months of training. Both transitions were 
achieved whilst working and parenting (the reality of adaptation at work).


Jim’s Taming Tigers presentation have inspired over 500,000 business people across 5 continents. 
Countless more have been inspired by his book Taming Tigers (Random House). 


The framework has changed the futures of young people going through tough times and CEOs 
looking to change their - and their organisation’s - performance. It has played a key role in many 
organisational transformations in major businesses across the world.

    Coronavirus Mental Skills Part 1: Getting To Sleep

    Coronavirus Mental Skills Part 1: Getting To Sleep

    If you don’t already know Jim Lawless, his expertise is elite human and team performance, transformation and wellbeing.

    For two decades, Jim has worked internationally with people who choose to - or have to - enter a period of rapid disruption where the outcome is not guaranteed.

    Performance under stress and in situations of uncertainty, risk, fear and anxiety is a key part of that work. And being able to access high quality rest and sleep is a vital skill - whether or not the day went well.

    The following mental skills for sleeping were developed during a disruptive time in Jim’s own life and then used to help him train for his UK freediving record.

    He has taught the skills to many high performers since that time.

    We hope you find them useful in getting a good night’s sleep.

    And, obviously, only listen to this when it is safe for you to sleep.
