    · Desert Island Discs: Archive 2005-2011

    Kirsty Young's castaway this week is Ricky Gervais. In just twelve episodes, his show The Office changed the face of British television comedy. At its centre was the comic monster, David Brent, a middle-manager being filmed for a mock-documentary who saw the ever-present cameras as his route to popularity and fame. Ricky Gervais's performance was both excruciating and unmissable - one critic called the programme "among the most affecting and invigorating works of fiction since the turn of the century". As he discusses with Kirsty Young, comedy was the language he grew up with - the youngest of four children, being able to come up with a gag or a smart rejoinder was the linguistic currency of his home. That, he says, is where the 'show-off performer' was born. Now with seven Baftas, two Golden Globes and an Emmy to his name, Ricky Gervais is gratified that his work is recognised and says his aim has always been to bring art into comedy.

  • The Psychology That Unlocks Your Full Potential... with Dr. Michael Gervais

    · 00:52:27 · Self Made Man

    Is there a common thread connecting how the greatest performers in the world, use their minds to pursue the boundaries of human potential? This is the question that has driven Dr. Michael Gervais throughout his career as one of the most successful performance coaches in the world. His clients include world record holders, Olympians, internationally acclaimed artists and musicians, MVPs from every major sport and Fortune 100 companies, including Microsoft, Boeing, and Zynga. Michael is a psychologist who specializes in working with professionals in high-stakes environments when it counts the most. He helped Felix Baumgartner become the first person in the world to make a free-fall jump from space in 2012 when he lept from the Red Bull Stratos platform and fell to earth faster than the speed of sound. Last year millions of people across the globe held their breath as American skydiver Luke Aikins jumped out of a plane without a parachute or wingsuit in a dramatic live or die moment. He fell for 2.5 minutes, eventually safely landing in a 100ft x 100ft net that he and his team built. Aikins is now in the history books as the first complete skydive without a parachute, and Dr. Gervais’ training was critical to his success. And Dr. Gervai was brought in by the Seattle Seahawks to provide the team with the mental edge they needed to win the Super Bowl in 2013. Today here joins us here at Self Made Man to give us some insights into his process, and how we can unlock our full potential in life.

    · 00:57:04 · Unmistakable Creative

    When we study people that are exceptional at risk taking, there are some clear functions that take part. There’s two phrases that guide many of them.  One is you’ll do whatever it takes. When something matters to you you’ll do whatever it takes. If you think about being a mother or husband or father, or someone you deeply love in your family structure, and there’s a car coming, you would be willing to do whatever it took to save that person that you love. And that level of conviction starts with great clarity.  That clarity is the statement that “I love you” as much as you can articulate in words and I will do in my action whatever it takes. - Michael GervaisSponsorsThe Great Courses Plus is a video learning services with access to thousands of lectures.
