Dr Adam Fraser is one of the most lauded speakers because of his ability to weave research facts into easily understandable and applicable tools for daily living—both for individuals and organizations.
Check out Adam‘s showreel and list of presentations below:
- Have a bad day and not take it home with you?
- Have a stressful meeting and not let that mood infect the next meeting?
- Endure a de-motivating set back yet still be able to attack your next task with optimism and enthusiasm?
In outlining The Third Space, Adam will bring to life his leading edge research and you’ll learn:
How to use the Third Space to transition effectively between the different roles/environments and tasks that make up our day to get the maximum value from each.
How to access your own Third Space to be resilient to any challenges just encountered. To reset and get back in an optimal state for high performance to take on the next task with a freshly focused and optimistic mindset.
How to empower groups with tools to “Show up” at work fully responsible for the energy they bring to positively affect the behaviour and culture of the organisation.
It is often said that culture eats strategy for breakfast. A flourishing culture is the most important aspect of a high performing team. In the world of psychology, incredible breakthroughs have been made into understanding how cultures and groups work.
4. The Psychology of Innovation
We are living in a marketplace of dramatically increasing complexity, competition and commoditisation. Technology is increasing customer power and awareness, driving down prices and margins, and increasing convergence, making it harder and harder to differentiate. This is the world we live in!
5. Working in Flow: High performance in the zone
Right now your business is under the pump. Companies and individuals now more than ever need to out-create, out-innovate and out-market their competition. The narrative in business has shifted from “how do we keep doing the same thing but to more people”, to “how do we stand out and offer something unique”. This evolution in business puts pressure on the human capitol that exists within corporations to step up.
6. Spark: Staying in high performance mode
Everyday your business faces high-pressure demands. Your workforce has been cut in half. Your people are being asked to do twice as much as they use to. And you’re all expected to deliver 3 times the results. It’s a state that drains your workforce of its power and fills the workspace with mounting stress. Dr Adam’s innovative research has shown that the only way to overcome this is to get into, and stay in, high performance mode by effectively managing your physical wellbeing. It’s what he calls SPARK.
7. Shift: The science behind change
If you’ve tried to implement change in your business you may have felt that you were banging your head against a brick wall. Well, you’re not alone. 75% of all change efforts introduced into organisations fail to get traction. Compelled to investigate why, Dr Adam uncovered the 3 main reasons that cause change to fail. More importantly he can show you what your company can do to overcome these debilitating obstacles.
8. GRIT: Getting You To Thrive
The ability to view pressure as a challenge not a threat is a characteristic we refer to as GRIT.
The ones who lack GRIT breed a workforce that is allergic to change, a workforce that will never innovate and ultimately become irrelevant. This is why 75% of all change efforts FAIL – because organisations low on GRIT cower at the first sign of a struggle and retreat to a “why can’t things stay the same” mentality.
