Episode 20 - Emotion at Work in Competitive Contexts

In this episode of the podcast, I chat with an athlete that has competed at the highest level in his class. As a Visually Impaired (VI) judo fighter Jonathan (Jono) Drane has represented team GB at the Paralympic Games in Rio 2016 finishing 5th in the 81kg weight category while having a torn Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL).  Prior to Rio, he won gold in this first competitive VI championship in the US and won a Bronze medal in the 2014 IBSA world championships.  
During the podcast, we explore how he personally experienced emotion in the ring, how it affected him, what he did before, during, and after his bouts to work with emotion.  We also explore how, in one of his current roles in coaching judo, he explores emotions with those he coaches.  We also discuss strategies that Jono has (or still does) use to work with emotion(s) and his view of how his life and neurodiversity (ADHD) impact his ability to effectively work with emotion(s).
