Interview with Adam Fridman

Adam Fridman believes that everyone should seek purpose in their life – personal and professional. A good and engaging company culture stems from people pursuing their purpose together. Through his keynotes, Adam inspires organizations to think about their purpose and company culture and how they can inspire their teams and employees. Read his interview and learn more about him and his speaking career.

 

How did you begin your speaking career?

We begun writing a book, Science of Story two years ago. In the process, we set a goal, to interview 1,000 companies. In the process, as I conducted interviews, leaders of organizations begun to ask for interviews to be expanded and include their leadership teams. Next thing I know, what we believe is shared with larger and larger audiences.

 

What types of results do clients experience after your programmes & keynotes?

Through my speaking and my platform Prohabits, individuals are reporting leaps in personal achievements while others report that they have changed the way they interact with one another at work. We are even seeing the first stages of improvement in individual focus, resilience, and interpersonal empowerment. As our collaborating organizations move into the next phase of our research, we will be tracking this individual growth along side key business outcomes and cultural metrics.

 

What is your favorite topic to speak about?

I believe that in a world full of distractions, people seek deeper meaning in their lives and work. A culture centered on purpose is the key to attracting a tribe of customers and employees that are invested and engaged in your organization’s success. I speak to organizations to have them make the conscious choice to pursue purpose. Topics that I speak about are the importance of positive psychology and how this can connect to the workplace to employees all the way to talking about connecting people to company purpose and values with habits.

 

Do you have a favorite experience from your speaking career?

Recently I went to Finland to speak at Slush conference, which brought together the leading actors of the global tech scene to Helsinki. I spoke with a company and showed the audience how habits and being purpose driven is important.

 

What are your biggest goals in your career currently?

I recently started a company ProHabits. ProHabits is on a mission to examine the connection between personal growth and organizational success. Our human-centric tech aligns personal development with organizational growth by delivering opportunities for living core values on a daily basis. We adopt the perspective of ubiquitously appreciated psychologist Abraham Maslow to explain the logic behind ProHabits. We believe that as individuals grow towards self actualization, they become more engaged and inspired at work.

The ultimate goal of ProHabits is to make living your values a habit. To achieve this goal, our platform measures and promotes personal growth via positive contributions to organizational culture. Ultimately, our research will determine how people’s daily micro-interactions can have a macro-impact for organizations.

 

What got you interested in company culture and purpose?

Three years ago, I was fortunate enough to come across a TED Talk by Simon Sinek; a speaker and author that has focused his attention on leadership and sparking change within organizations. Between his talk, and his book, titled “Start With Why”, Sinek has had more of an influential and monumental role in my professional and personal development than any of my other experiences combined.

After finding his talk and reading his book, I had the opportunity to interview Simon Sinek in which I was able to dive deeper into his world of professional development and leadership. Through our interview, I was able to fully grasp the concept of “why” which ultimately sparked the creation of Science of Story. Sinek discussed the process of discovering one’s “why” and how it has become a sort of personal awakening that causes an individual, organization, or even community to just click.
