EP42. How to Design a Kindness Culture

Randy McNeely lives and breathes kindness and he has dedicated his life to sharing ways to be kind and getting a culture of kindness engrained into organisations. Randy has written a book on the topic of kindness called “The Kindness Givers Formula” and in it, he shares how acts of kindness have the powerful ability to change people’s day (and even change lives in some instances).  In this episode, Brendan chats to Randy about his journey into teaching individuals and organisations to leverage kindness to improve their world and the world of people around them. They go into how being kind, actually has the power to make the person being kind, feel good. Yes, scientific evidence that shows that kindness literally goes both ways. Being kind is easier than it may seem in the moment and the more you look for opportunities to be kind, the more such opportunities will tend to arise. This will, in turn, mean cultivating a Circle of Kindness and positivity all around you. So whether it’s in your business or personal life, Randy reminds us about the BIG impact a small act of kindness can have.  Randy is truly passionate about his mission to get the world to become a kinder place - and boy, we can all do with a kinder world, right?

EP41. The Art of Self-Mastery

In today’s episode, Brendan dives into an inspiring discussion with RJ Singh - founder of Ultra Habits, an ultra-endurance athlete, self-mastery mentor and a proud husband and father of two. He is the director of Cora Group - an integrated business to business freight and logistics management company. He is a natural leader - through leading by example. He has taken it upon himself to focus on always striving to be better, and helping other men do the same. He had a rocky start, falling in with the wrong crowd and becoming dependent on drugs and alcohol at a young age. However, at the age of 25, with the help of mentors and friends, RJ got sober and decided that it was important for him to “pay it forward” and help mentor and inspire other young men into making smarter decisions and realising the impact they can have on the world.  A powerful life lesson he embodies is that any change you wanted to see in the world needs to come from inside yourself first. This realisation has become a major driving force in his life and it determines how he makes decisions and the activities he spends his time on. He explains the deep value of regular introspection and making time to build good habits.  RJ is humble and charismatic and one cannot help but be inspired by the way he has found a way to rise above all the adversity he has faced in his lifetime.    Resources Cora Group RJ Singh LinkedIn  RJ Singh Instagram Ultra Habits Facebook Page Brendan Rogers Website ...

38. The Leadership Journey of School Captains

38. The Leadership Journey of School Captains

    Robert & Taylem were the 2020 School Captains at Central Coast Grammar School. I have had the privilege of working with both Robert & Taylem over this past year. We have talked about so many things related to their leadership journey and their experiences as School Captains of one of the most prestigious schools on the Central Coast. We wanted to bring this journey to life in a podcast episode to help other current and aspiring young school leaders, but also people working with young leaders to reflect on how we can work together to achieve great outcomes. In saying that, I know through first hand experience of working with Robert & Taylem, how much our young people can open up our minds and help us older generations to view the world through a different lens. The focus of our conversation today is learning from Robert and Taylem about their school leadership experience.     If you have any questions for Brendan around this episode or generally around culture, leadership or teamwork, feel free to contact him here. ...
