Dr Adam Fraser has spent his life researching the habits of high performers. He also happens to be one; he’s a keynote speaker, researcher, best-selling author, husband and father of two young girls.
Dr Adam Fraser is a human performance researcher and consultant. He specialises in how organisations can adopt a culture of high performance. As a result, he’s worked with elite level athletes, the armed forces and business professionals of all levels.
While other speakers can only talk about research, he carries out the research himself, partnering with Universities through Asia Pacific to uncover the habits of high performers. He even holds the distinction of being the only keynote speaker in the world to have the impact of his keynote presentation measured in a University study!
It was a real treat to have Dr Adam Fraser on the show. I am a huge fan of his work, having attended a Business Chicks Masterclass of his, and geeked out over his research.
I was blown away by the compassion, empathy, and authenticity he brought to our conversation. He didn’t shy away from talking about the difficulties and sacrifices a lot of high performers make. He also didn’t shy away from emphasising the importance of self care and building habits to avoid burnout.
During our chat we dive deep into the habits of high performers and some great ideas to help maintain work life balance while being trapped at home. I have no doubt you will get SO MUCH out of our chat, I know I did.
In this episode we cover:
- Dr Adam Fraser’s career journey to human performance researcher, author and consultant
- Adam shares his definition of a high performer, and the characteristics that separate high performers from everyone else

- Some of the habits of high performers that help them slow down

- And so much more!
