Welcome to Tiger Therapy, where we delve into the mental and emotional side of what it takes to be successful, and specifically how to identify and get over the self doubt and limiting beliefs that hold so many people back and stop them realizing their full potential.
Each week, join Pippa Woodhead, as she speaks to a new guest who has achieved success on their own terms - perhaps they’ve gone against the grain in some way, shattered a ceiling, done something unexpected, or they’ve broken generational patterns. She’ll be asking them to share their experiences with limiting beliefs and times where self doubt got in the way.

Learning From Failure, Coping With Self Doubt and Psychological Safety at Work - Amy Edmondson
36:02I don’t know about you, but whenever I’ve tried something new in life and it hasn’t gone well, the little voice inside my head that whispers “you’re not good enough” gets much louder. Failure can be painful and can be an incredibly strong fuel to our self-doubt.I am BEYOND excited to introduce this weeks Tiger Therapy episode with Amy Edmondson!!!Amy Edmondson is very modest, so allow me to blow her trumpet for her - she is a ROCKSTAR in academic circles. She is Professor of Leadership and Management at Harvard Business School, Thinkers50 #1 Ranked Thinker in the World and an award winning author. 'Psychological safety' - the term she coined in the 90’s is what truly put her name on the map. This term has become widely used in discussions about company culture and good leadership. In her Tiger Therapy episode, Amy talks about her new book ‘Right Kind of Wrong: The Science of Failing Well, where she outlines her research into failure. Spoiler: the popular Silicon Valley-style narrative of the benefits of failure isn’t quite right.She also opens up about how her own failures caused her profound self doubt and made her question everything.Thank you Amy for the brilliant conversation!_______Social media: Pippa Woodhead | @pippa.woodheadTigerhall Amy Edmondson Hosted on Acast.

Growing Up Around Fame and Life Lessons from Intellectual Disability - Tim Shriver
43:53We’re back with Season 2 of Tiger Therapy!!!What’s it like growing up in one of the most famous families in the world? How does this shape your sense of self worth, and the pressure you put on yourself to have an extraordinary career?I’m beyond excited to be kicking off S2 with a conversation with the amazing Dr. Timothy Shriver, disability rights activist and Chairman of Special Olympics. You may well already know who Tim is - he’s a disability rights activist, and Chairman of Special Olympics. Special Olympics is the world's largest sports organization for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.And if you recognise the name “Shriver” beyond Tim - then that may well be because of Tim’s family. While nobody wants to be defined by one’s relatives, it’s fair to say his family have shaped the world as we know it today - and have also shaped Tim’s life work.His mother, Eunice Kennedy Shriver, founded Special Olympics, and also happened to be sister to former U.S. President John F. Kennedy. His father Sargent Shriver, founded the Peace Corps. I’m so grateful to Tim for opening up with me and sharing what he’s learned about self doubt, why the comparison game is dangerous, and the life lessons and unexpected meaning he’s found from working with those with intellectual disabilities._______Social media: @pippa.woodhead@tigerhall@timothyshriver@specialolympics Hosted on Acast.

Being Both a Superstar Athlete & Oscar Winning Screenwriter - Lesley Paterson
31:47While most of us are focusing on making one career work, this weeks episode is with someone who has totally dominated two completely different industries.When Lesley Paterson, 5x World Champion professional triathlete retired from sports, she was asked “What’s next?” She replied she was moving around the world from Scotland to Los Angeles to write a screenplay and win an Oscar.If anyone doubted her, they might have felt justified as the years went by. It took 16 years for Lesley’s screenplay, an adaptation of “All Quiet on the Western Front"; to get made - it was eventually picked up by Netflix. Lesley not only succeeded in her goal to win an Oscar, she won four. And seven Bafta’s too. What an extraordinary story of the power of perseverance and believing in yourself.Lesley also has an amazing technique to overcome self doubt - which I’ll defiantly be trying!_____Social media:@pippa.woodheadTigerhall@lesleydoestri Hosted on Acast.

From Skipping School to NASA to Million Dollar Startup: A Story of Incredible Growth - Aisha Bowe
47:11“When I was growing up, I was heavily influenced by my circumstances at the time. I didn’t come from a rich family. I didn’t feel smart. I had never seen a woman do the things I do now.”Aisha Bowe’s growth story is nothing short of extraordinary. From believing she was “dumb” and bad at math whilst at school, an inspirational teacher changed the course of her life, leading her to study aerospace engineering - ultimately landing her at NASA as a bona fide rocket scientist. After NASA, she founded STEMBoard— recognized by Inc.5000 as one of the fastest-growing companies in America. Not bad for someone who regularly suffers from self doubt and imposter syndrome.Thank you Aisha for coming on Tiger Therapy - we’re so inspired by you!_____Social media:Social media:@pippa.woodhead@tigerhall@aishabowe Hosted on Acast.

Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, is an organizational psychologist who studies (among other things) confidence. Where he’s different from a lot of literature you may have read on the topic, is he isn’t trying to increase our confidence - rather, the opposite. If you want to listen to something who will make you feel your lack of confidence is a secret superpower - this is for you!Tomas has also written several books - the two most relevant for this topic are 'Confidence: How Much You Really Need and How to Get It' and 'Why Do So Many Incompetent Men Become Leaders.' His latest book, 'I, Human: AI, Automation, and the Quest to Reclaim What Makes Us Unique', is out now._____Social media:@pippa.woodhead@tigerhall@drtomaschamorro Hosted on Acast.
