Today’s episode is a bit of a shorter one from our usual format. We talk to Dr. Jason Selk. Jason one of the world’s top performance coaches. He has worked with professional and Olympic athletes as well as leaders of many of the world’s leading organisations. He was the sports psychologist for the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team when they won the World Series in 2006 and again in 2011.
Jason trains people and teams to develop mental toughness. He has written a number of books on the topic, including Executive Toughness and 10 Minute Toughness. If you have been a follower of our show, you will know that to manage, let alone embrace uncertainty, how we think is just as important as what we think. As you will hear, the ‘how’ of thinking is a skill. Just like any other skill, it can be trained. The more we do this, the better we get at it.
So, this episode can be perhaps thought of as a bit of a training session. Jason gives us his background and a bit of theory, and some wider thoughts on responding to the coronavirus pandemic, but the crux of the episode is the short mental workout Jason developed around mental performance that he uses with his clients. It’s incredibly useful, particularly now.
