A Recipe for High Performance Under Pressure with Dr. Jonathan Fader


This episode marks a proud milestone for our team. It’s our 100th episode! We deeply appreciate our incredible guests who have trusted us to tell their stories and showcase their lifelong work, to include our guest in this episode, Dr. Jonathan Fader.

Dr. Fader was featured in episode two of this podcast, but was in fact our first recorded interview for this show. So, we thought it would be fitting to bring him back for the 100th episode. In our last conversation, we explored mental skills, risk aversion, and process over outcomes. In this conversation, we’re building on those themes and also unpacking some of the things that Dr. Fader has learned about performance in the past four years, particularly working with the Leadership Under Fire team.
