Igniting desire, courage and confidence in trailblazing companies

In the shift from the Industrial Age to the Knowledge Economy, the enterprises that reach the top - and those that successfully defend that position - are those that understand how to encourage their people to dare to try. To take the astute risks required to innovate, grow and succeed. These businesses understand that true transformation isn’t imposed from on high, but unleashed from within. Every single day.

Your colleagues will gain the courage, confidence and tools to seize opportunity when faced with change, and your enterprise will harness the full value of transformation.

The Book

Every time I feel doubt or negativity I read this book. The first time I read it I was just bored in work & picked it up to read, and am I thankful that I did. It's changed my life for the better and I tell everyone about this book.

Kayl, Amazon Reviewer

A very readable book which inspires you to act, not just be. It reminds us that our life stories are ours to write, something we often fail to appreciate. It is easy to identify the 'tiger' in so many day-to-day situations, roaring in the shadows, justifying the don't, can't, shouldn't, couldn't possibly, what would others think?, better not, what if'' trains of thought. Even if the tiger has its desired effect sometimes, and I listen to its warning roar, I am at least aware of its presence and my choice not to act, not to write my own next chapter. As a family, we often refer to the tiger and by simply identifying it, we are able to confront it and take some of those scary big decisions in life, which are often the most exciting and enriching. Once read, even if at times it makes for uncomfortable reflections on our life's course to date, Taming Tigers forces you to 'own' your life story - your script. The tiger is ever-present, but our belief in our own ability to disempower it grows each time we decide to face it.

Vyveanne Francis, Amazon Reviewer

If, like me, you're cycnical about books by so-called motivational speakers, then you might approach this book with some suspicion - I certainly did. Within one chapter, all such doubts are dispelled and this book really does make you focus on what you really can achieve.

Geoffrey Barnes, Amazon Reviewer

I saw Jim speak at a conference a few years ago. This book provides even more insight than would have been possible during a 60 minute keynote. What he shares is a no nonsense and grounded assessment without pretending that it is easy. It is hugely refreshing and so different from a lot of other books. The 10 rules are presented in a highly engaging and entertaining way. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is or aspires to be successful.

Duncan Brodie, Amazon Reviewer

Jim's book is many things: part story, part philosophy, part autobiography. Above all it is readable and inspiring from the first page. Jim writes in a way that is unpatronising; it is his perspective from the other side of the fence, his story of one's potential if one has the courage to pursue it. A structured, beautifully written and heartfelt book.

Georgina, Amazon Reviewer

Stumbled across this book by accident and ordered out of curiosity. Wasn't expecting much so was totally blown away by the direct, funny and motivating coaching. This is brilliant: written by someone who has actually achieved greatness - and is happy to explain how they did it. This is NOT a self help book: this may change your attitude to life forever. Months on I'm still using Jim's ten rules to amazing effect - wow!

Richillie, Amazon Reviewer

Jim Lawless has been there and done it. He's tested his principles in 2 major challenges. I've read tons of so called inspirational books but this one goes the extra mile (if not 1000 miles). Sometimes, I have read a good book and thought that I'd like to re-read it again a few years later. With this one, as soon as I finished it, I went right back to page 1 and started again as there was so much great stuff to take in. This book should be compulsory reading in every high school.

MR GP LYON, Amazon Reviewer

I have read many books to do with changing the way you think, dealing with depression and how to deal with problems. This book is very honest and pragmatic and does not promise the world. It teaches you how to deal with your fears (those tigers) and how to get out of the mental rut that so many of us are in. This book explains that even if you do not achieve your dreams, by following its ten rules, you will have moved on and will be able to deal with life in a much more positive and effective way. I feel as if a 'cranial cataract' has been removed from my brain. I thoroughly recommend it.
