There are conversations I bring you on the podcast which have a specific focus, topic or slant.  There are others, which are simply conversations that I want to have, and I thought I would invite you in to listen.  I love exploring my own curiosity about people, their stories and experiences and insights.  This is one of those conversations, which is why this episode is called, Thinking Out Loud, with Adam Johns. 

Hey, it’s Andrew, and this is Safety on Tap.

Since you’re listening in, you must be a leader wanting to grow yourself and drastically improve health and safety along the way. Welcome to you, you’re in the right place. If this is your first time listening in, thanks for joining us and well done for trying something different to improve! And of course welcome back to all of you wonderful regular listeners.

This is a long episode too.  You’ll hear a fair bit about Adam’s background and where he is now, so without further ado,

Here’s Adam Johns: 


You know I’m all about better learning which drives better performance.  You should also know that passive learning, like a podcast, is nowhere near as impactful as learning in which you can engage more actively. 

And, regular listeners will know that I have had feedback in the past that my takeaways at the end of each conversation can be both really helpful, or might unnecessarily constrain a listener to not explore their own insights and takeaways. 

So I hope you will engage in an experiment with me.  I won’t share any takeaways from me this week, instead I invite you all to share one takeaway.  The thing is that the stats show me how many hundred of you listen, even within a day of a new episode coming out, so how amazing would it be if even just some of you, shared one insight publically, for the rest of us to see?

The way to do this is simple: add a comment below, to share your insight.  A sentence or two.  20-30 seconds is all it will take. 

I know it’s really easy to smash through podcasts while on the train or at the gym or at work.  Listen, finish, next one.  I’m inviting you to pause just a little, and do this one thing, share one insight, because it will help you, and it will help all of us. 

Let’s see if we can’t leverage this amazing technology to crowdsource learning insights, so you aren’t just limited to your own thoughts and mine, we can tap into an exponential amount of insight from each other.  Take half a minute and share your takeaway in a comment below.  I can’t wait to read what you share.  And I will update you next episode on how it went, so you have a feedback loop. 

Thanks so much for listening.  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? Seeya!
