4 Ways To Check In With Your Friends & Colleagues (RUOK?)

In today's episode we've been inspired by R U OK? Day to talk about how we check-in with our friends.

In today's episode we've been inspired by R U OK? Day to talk about how we check-in with our friends.

(You may notice a new show format: We're shedding the 'business' style podcast name so we can get more personal. We hope these conversations between two father, business men and friends are valuable in your own lives as a parent, business owner and human being.)

Before we hit record, we were talking about that fact that R U OK? Day is great for spreading awareness about mental health, but what if we practiced it every week?

What are you currently doing to check-in with those around you?

Dale has four different ways to check-in for you to try, plus a little gift for you too.

Here they are for your reference:
  1. The Emoji Check-In – Message: Can you send me 3 emojis and explain them? I will do it back.
  2. 1 to 10 Scale – Message: On a scale of 1-10, how are you feeling? I just want a number back. Then: How can I take that 6 and turn it into an 8?
  3. The PAL Message – Each morning pick one person and send the message: I’m proud of you because… I admire this about you… I love this about you…
  4. Handwritten Note in a Book – Buy a book, write a note in the cover and mail it to someone.
Gift:
If you need help with number 4, perhaps you can't afford doing this right now, you're in luck. Simply email Dale the name of a person and why you are grateful for them and he’ll send a copy of his book book to someone on your behalf (limited to the first 5 people).
