Adams led his side to two victories and a draw from three matches during the period which was cut short by the winter break.
County began 2013 with a stunning 4-1 victory at League Cup finalists St Mirren before following that up with a 1-1 draw against Dundee United at Tannadice.
The final match of the month saw them return home to Dingwall where they beat Hibernian 1-0 to move out of the bottom two.
During the period, Adams was active in the transfer window with former Hibs winger Ivan Sproule among his January captures.
And the Northern Irishman paid immediate dividends with three goals for the Staggies during his first three matches with the club.
Adams was chosen by a panel of Scottish football experts from a shortlist which included the top three fans' nominations from Clydesdale Bank's football website.
