On the Bucket List Life Podcast today I chat to Graeme Cowan, international speaker and author. Graeme is one of Australia’s leading experts in building resilience and engagement in the workplace. He is the director of the R U OK? movement which is the national depression initiative to get people asking each other “Are You Ok?”

During this episode we discuss:

– How did you arrive to do what you do today?
– As a friend or work colleague, how can we recognise that someone may be on the slippery slope towards depression?
– Stress in the workplace…how bad is it?
– Just how big is the problem of depression today & the effects?
– Describe the “Red, Yellow & the Green Zone” & how we can stay in the “Green Zone?”
– How can we get back in the “Green Zone” & find our “Green Zone Tribe?”
– You’ve helped create the National Suicide Prevention movement R U OK Day. Describe the movement?
– 4 steps to asking R U OK? Ask, Listen, Encourage, Follow-up.
