As a high-performance psychologist, Michael Gervais, Ph.D. works in the trenches of high-stakes environments, where there is no luxury for mistakes, hesitation or failure to respond. He works individually and with groups of high-profile people from every major sport, Olympians, Fortune 100 CEOs, as well as internationally acclaimed artists and musicians.

Michael is the co-founder of Compete to Create, a joint venture with Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll, which has built a framework to enhance high-performance cultures by focusing on mindset training for individuals.

Ultimately, Mike’s goal is to unpack, then decode how the greatest performers in the world use their minds to pursue the boundaries of human potential. To accelerate that aim, he has curated conversations with those who have dedicated their lives to becoming the best in his podcast Finding Mastery.

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, we talk about how mindset influences performance, why Mike considers himself a “curious Adventurepreneur” and why he disagrees with “hacking.”
