He has worked with the British Olympic Team, the English national football team, Harlequins RFC, Scotland rugby, the Command Group of NATO, the South African cricket team, the Royal Ballet School, and high performing corporate settings. Owen, a New Zealander based in the UK with roots from Ireland has a unique approach that looks to an evolutionary understanding of a team or organisation, leadership dynamics, cohesion, wisdom from our ancestors, and what contemporary institutions do very well. Today we start with the imagery on the front of the book and its origins, and why belonging is critical for reducing anxiety, improving confidence, and instilling trust. Owen unpacks the essence of the working environment and culture moving forward, psychological safety, and why a sense of connection and belonging is vital. We enquire about sustaining success with teams where there is staff and player turnover, emotional availability for young professionals, and the harmony between boundaries and autonomy - a profound concept called tapu noa.

In July of this year, my Dad almost carked it.He went tramping alone in the bush in winter. He got lost. He fell.He smashed up his body and fractured a vertabrae. He was hallucinating, hypothermic, severely-dehydrated, suffering serious muscle wastage and close to kidney failure, when the Nelson Marlborough Rescue Helicopter answered his emergency locator beacon and winched him out of the bush, alive. A few days later, his new granddaughter was born.When the two of them sit down at Christmas lunch next week, there will be plenty of reasons for the Tame family to feel grateful.I've been thinking a lot about gratitude, this week. I've been reflecting on all the stresses and challenges we've faced. 2021, maybe even more than 2020, has been dominated by the pandemic. For our last show together this year, I've been trying to put our experience in context.The truth is, despite everything, I'm still grateful to have spent the majority of the last two years in New Zealand. Of course, there have been significant errors in our Covid response. I think we were woefully unprepared for Delta in New Zealand, despite all the warning signs. Sir John Key said ‘Smug hermit kingdom.' I'd say complacent, or naive. We didn't properly plan for a scenario where lockdowns weren't enough to knock out the virus. It took community spread for us to inject urgency into the response. It took community spread for us to go to the secondary vaccine market, to introduce vaccine certificates and mandates.I think, at times, we've treated New Zealanders overseas like second-class citizens. History will show, despite all the warnings from public health experts, we stuffed up elements of the response for Māori. We weren't ready for at-home isolation monitoring. We didn't increase ICU capacity. It took forever for saliva and Rapid Antigen tests to become available.And yet... and yet... and YET. I still think, if you had to pick any major country in which to have spent the last two years, New Zealand would have to be near the top of the list. Sure, at certain moments it would have been nicer to be living in New York or the U.K or Spain or wherever else. When Auckland was locked down and the Northern Hemisphere was living large? Sure. I felt envious, too. But compare us, now. The U.S just passed 800,000 recorded deaths. New Zealand is still in double figures. We have a 90% eligible vaccination rate. Any way you look at it, that's an extraordinary achievement.I appreciate this view might put me in the minority amongst my Newstalk ZB colleagues. But you know, we are capable of a little bit of complexity in our thinking. We can hold two seemingly contradictory thoughts in our heads. We can acknowledge our leaders and bureacracy have made significant errors - errors which deserve hard critiques and political consequences – but that the totality of our response has still made New Zealand a much better place to be for the last two years than most other places in the World. I'm grateful for that.I don't know how easy it's going to be to escape the pandemic, this summer. Omicron probably has its own plans, but at the very least, I'm going to try.On Monday I'll fly to Nelson. I'll drive home to Golden Bay. And if the weather's clear next week, I'll head out on the overnight tramp on which my Dad almost died six months ago. My brother, my sister, and my old man will climb up to Boulder Lake. The plan is to start early, and go slowly. If all goes well, we'll reach the hut hours before sunset. We'll make a brew. We'll have a feed. We'll bunk down for another family Christmas, bruised, weary, and grateful.LISTEN ABOVE

Let's get one thing straight: It would be fantastic if New Zealanders didn't smoke.Our Smokefree 2025 aspirations, although perhaps a smidgen optimistic, are excellent. The steps we've taken over the last few decades, from advertising restrictions to plain packaging laws, excise tax hikes to the recent ban on smoking in cars, have made a massive difference to the number of New Zealanders who smoke cigarettes. I look back to the childhood evenings I spent in rugby clubrooms, heavy with a fog of cigarette smoke, and it feels like a different life.But I do have some reservations about the phased-in ban on cigarette sales. Restricting drug access can have unintended consequences. Would we have seen the surge in dairies being robbed in violent robberies if we hadn't massively increased excise taxes? Of course not. And more broadly, does banning drug use ever work? In my experience, human-beings will always find a way to get an illicit fix. If you ban anything, you automatically create illegal demand. And the black market for cigarettes might not end up being too big, you can be sure it will exist. It already does!The thing that tilts me in favour of the proposal is that the drug which makes cigarettes so addicitive – nicotine – isn't actually being banned at all. I've got heaps of mates who have moved off the lungas' and onto vaping instead. I'm almost 35, I've never smoked a cigarette and I'm confident I never will. But I have had a hoon on a few vape pens in my time. With watermelon or mango or cool mint flavours, I can see why the kids like them so much. Banning cigarettes simply wouldn't be possible if we didn't have something like vaping as an alternative. But that has its own issues. There will be many young New Zealanders – tens or hundreds of thousands, even – who might never have smoked a cigarette, but become addicted to vaping instead. I suppose this is a cost of progress.I have to say though, I prickle when I compare our politicians' proactive work with tobacco to that of other drugs. If we were to step back and consider what drug harm needed priorisiting in New Zealand, cigarettes and tobacco wouldn't be top of the list.It'd be booze. Booze is the number one cause of death for young New Zealanders aged between 15 and 49. Booze kills almost three times as many New Zealanders every year as smoking. And that's not to mention all of the crime, violence, and societal problems it causes.For tobacco, we've gone hard. We've banned advertising and sponsorship. We've cranked up excise taxes. We've introduced plain packaging laws and banned smoking indoors. We've heavily subsidised programmes to help Kiwis quit.With booze? ... Nothing.I'm not suggesting we ban alcohol. Of course not. But it looks increasingly likely New Zealand will move to ban the sale of cigarettes before it gets anywhere near introducing the simplest advertising or marketing restrictions for our most harmful drug.I'm open to the phased-in ban on cigarettes. I hope it'll work. The Cancer Society reckons it's courageous. But if you want real courage, find me a government that'll do something meaningful about alcohol.LISTEN ABOVE

The ADHD community says it's in crisis with more than 80% struggling to get support. Long waits at District Health Boards, most of which won't see adults at all, is forcing most patients to seek help privately or give up entirely. An estimated one in 20 New Zealanders have the condition and some are now resorting to Tik Tok for medical advice. The Ministry of Health says it's always concerning to hear some are struggling to access the support they need, and it recognises inconsistencies across DHBs in how they treat adults with ADHD and mental health issues. It says its response to the Mental Health and Addiction Inquiry and wider health reforms will create a more unified approach across public and private health providers, and it's also working to put more counsellors in schools to help children and young people.

[00:30] Weakness in America and Britain (27 minutes)In a recent interview, Tucker Carlson lamented the weakness of Americans, Canadians, New Zealanders, Australians and the British when it comes to standing up to tyranny. He said our once powerful peoples are now cowering in fear because of a virus. Carlson is spot on in his assessment, but what he doesn't realize is that the Bible prophesied of our nations' decline in these last days. [27:30] Roe v. Wade (12 minutes)Yesterday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments over the Mississippi ban on abortion after 15 weeks. If the Supreme Court sides with the state of Mississippi, it may finally undo the unconstitutional ruling of Roe v. Wade. Democrats are apoplectic about the idea of Roe being overturned. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor said judges need to consider the public's perception of the Court, implying that this was more important than ruling in accordance with the Constitution. New Hampshire Senator Cynthia Shaheen says she expects to “see a revolution” if Roe v. Wade is overturned. This court ruling, expected to be published next summer, could be another spark to set off a firestorm of violence in America. [39:25] Bible Study: Man's Godlike Mind (15 minutes)Mankind was not only made in God's likeness, after His form and shape, but also in His image—His mind and character! Unlike animals, mankind has a spirit that imparts the power of intellect. This makes possible a spiritual connection with God! You could say the human spirit bridges the gap between God and man. Upon the receipt of the Holy Spirit, the human mind can understand the “things of God,” as 1 Corinthians 2:11 says. That is what makes possible our conversion and, ultimately, our birth into the divine Family of God.

New Zealanders are paying too much for house and contents insurance, according to a new survey. Consumer NZ's price comparison survey shows climate and natural hazard risk is being factored in, and is more expensive than ever. Quotes for a large house differed by more than $3,000 across Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch, and Dunedin, and there's a more than $2,000 difference between the cheapest and most expensive policies on offer for a standard-sized house. If you live somewhere with a higher chance of earthquakes - such as Wellington or Christchurch - you'll be charged more for insurance. The cost of house and contents insurance has risen by 5.6% this year, over the past ten years it's gone up 150%.

Each week the New Zealand Herald and Newstalk ZB's Cooking The Books podcast tackles a different money problem. Today, it's how to get through the notoriously expensive Christmas season without blowing the budget. Hosted by Frances Cook.You don't need me to tell you it's an expensive time of year.I start to feel the dread of Christmas around October, reminding me I need to buy people presents, stock up on food, and prepare for the social calendar to be flooded.All of the Christmas festivities are fun, don't get me wrong, but they can definitely leave you with a fiscal hangover.So in the spirit of Christmas, I got the Cooking the Books community together to share their best tips with each other.I asked those who follow my pages on Facebook and Twitter how they got through Christmas without totally blowing the budget.We're a bunch of frugally minded people, and the last time we did a community episode I was impressed at the great advice people had to offer.Listen to the podcast for the full quotes of how people use these tips and tricks in their own life, but for those of you who just want a quick list, here are the main points.Be picky about who actually gets a present.Now this might sound a little scrooge-ish, but I think it's a great tip.It's easy to feel like you need to be santa and buy something expensive and thoughtful for everyone from your boss's first cousin, to the mailman's dog. But there are better ways to go about it.Secret santas for the adults and a price limit on presents for the kids were a popular solution.Taking the focus off a mountain of presents lets everyone relax a bit , and spend their time and money on being together instead.Go second hand for presents.From the people who messaged me, this seems to be particularly useful for kids.The local second hand shops can be a treasure trove of high quality toys, and particularly while they're young, kids won't notice or care.Others didn't even pop down to the local Sallies for second hand gifts; they regifted things they'd received the year before.Regifting is all about diplomacy and thought. Don't do it in front of the person who gave you it originally, and make sure the person you're regifting to is likely to actually enjoy it.Get craftyThis is for the skilled people amongst us, but there are some great things you can give that are more meaningful than an expensive present.Homemade chutneys or preserves were popular gifts for adults, or a voucher book of treats for your significant other.While yes, the point of this episode is to save money, I think these ideas actually bring us back to what Christmas is about.By spending time together and doing something thoughtful to help another person out, it forces you to think about things a bit more.Plan aheadWhile this isn't much help for this year, you can start thinking about next Christmas right now.People messaged me with clever tips including paying into a special presents bank account all year, paying extra on their bills from September so they could coast through Christmas for free, and the best Christmas supermarket clubs that give you bang for your buck.Spreading it over the year like this makes it so much easier to deal with.Spread the loadChristmas is a time when you might feel the pressure to be the perfect host by feeding your entire extended family a five course meal.Overeating is one of my favourite parts of the holiday season, but there are ways to do it with less stress and cost.Lots of people messaged me with the idea to bring a plate. This not only cuts down on the time and stress of producing a mountain of food, but also makes sure you get lots of different types of food.Then you get to relax and eat together, and enjoy your time more.Saving money is actually the least of the benefits here.Just take the pressure off.

Today, someone in the wealthiest 1 per cent of adults – a club of some 40,000 people – has a net worth 68 times that of the average New Zealander. Too Much Money: How Wealth Disparities are Unbalancing Aotearoa New Zealand (Bridget Williams Books, 2021) is the story of how wealth inequality is changing Aotearoa New Zealand. Possessing wealth opens up opportunities to live in certain areas, get certain kinds of education, make certain kinds of social connections, exert certain kinds of power. And when access to these opportunities becomes alarmingly uneven, the implications are profound. This ground-breaking book provides a far-reaching and compelling account of the way that wealth – and its absence – is transforming our lives. Drawing on the latest research, personal interviews and previously unexplored data, Too Much Money reveals the way wealth is distributed across the peoples of Aotearoa. Max Rashbrooke's analysis arrives at a time of heightened concern for the division of wealth and what this means for our country's future. Max Rashbrooke is a journalist, author and academic based in Wellington. His books, led by the best-selling Inequality: A New Zealand Crisis (new edition 2018), have helped transform national understanding of income and wealth inequality.
