S4 Ep 15: Mental Toughness

Gaj Ravichandra

This week on the WarriorU Podcast Bram Connolly talks to Gaj Ravichandra, an Organisational Psychologist and co-founder of Kompass Consultancy.

Gaj works with organisations to enhance talent management initiatives and leadership capability. They discuss mental toughness and resilience and how these influence one’s reactions, views, and especially leadership strategies.

Gaj poses lots of interesting questions that are aligned with human optimization, like having a critical mindset, managing strengths and weaknesses, and improving leadership. There is also an entire discussion on regaining control from situations where it seems like there is no control.
