Graeme Cowan

Author, Team Care and Resilience Speaker

Graeme Cowan helps leaders and teams to be more caring and resilient – and enjoy growing together.

He is a Founding Board Director of R U OK? and host of The Caring CEO podcast, where interviews CEO’s who champion a culture of care AND high performance.

In his earlier career he worked in senior leadership positions with Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, and the management consulting company, Kearney.

In 2000 he went through a 5 year episode of depression that his psychiatrist described as the worst he had ever treated. He emerged from this crisis with a different view about how we can increase our resilience, mood, and performance.

He is the author of 4 books, including the internationally acclaimed BACK FROM THE BRINK, which has a testimonial from the former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, and which has become a best seller in China.

    In volatile times, it can be easy to forget self-care. Adopting tiny habits can help you enjoy the direct link between self-care, resilience, and growth. These small steps are the secret to being prepared for moments that matter at home and at work.
  • Growing psychologically safe and resilient teams – Building care AND high performance
    Are we connected? Do we have a shared future? Are we safe? These 3 qualities are central to better team performance in an uncertain world. Our #1 priority is to help build more caring and resilient teams, who enjoy growing together. We show how everyone can contribute to this.
  • Building an R U OK?365 culture – Mental health for all – by involving all
    The CSIRO has identified rising work stress as a mega risk to productivity for the next 20 years.Major disruptions like Covid-19 have amplified this. Setbacks can happen any day, so having a sustainable and caring culture is critical.
