    Ep132: Action hero? With Andrew Barrett

    Every episode of this podcast finishes with these same words: Until next time, what's the one thing you'll do to take positive, effective or rewarding action, to grow yourself, and drastically improve health and safety along the way?

    What does that action look like? Because there is a good action, and there is not so good action.

    Ep130: Reflect, with Andrew Barrett

    In that sense, I am not the flower flourishing but the gardener, carefully helping prepare soil, to sow new seeds of ideas and challenge, to water and fertilise the growth of others. But events can be a flash in the pan, superbly energising and flourishing in the moment, which often fades away quickly. I will be supercharging this hybrid combo approach to learning in 2020.

    For how long did you and your partner date? How long before you and your partner made some significant decisions, like meeting each other's family, going on holiday together, getting a dog, sharing bank details, moving in together, or maybe (call me old fashioned), getting married?

Andrew

Thank you so much for this podcast. With New Zealand moving to Australia’s model legislation we are also moving into the safety differently way of thinking. I have loved to listen from you and learn different perspectives. It has challenged me in looking at different perspectives and see how it could fit in my toolbox for work now or in the future. I have really enjoyed listening on wellbeing and the use of technology to import energy the safety environment.

I was able to binge listen over some old episodes and I have learnt so much by not only hearing new perspectives but also hearing challenges to my own beliefs. Keep up the good work.
