Show Notes

There is a very simple, easy way to differentiate yourself in this highly competitive world, whatever industry you work in: incorporate strict ethical standards into every aspect of your business (and personal) relationships.  Are you trustworthy, loyal, and fair? Do you reveal conflicts of interest? Do independent research? Do you continually learn and improve?  These are some of the ten components of ethical business and leadership that Dr. Andrew Stotz tells us about in today’s episode.

Andrew Stotz is a former president of the Chartered Financial Analyst Society of Thailand and is one of Thailand’s award-winning equity analysts. He’s also the founder and CEO of A.Stotz Investment Research. He's an author, a university lecturer, and co-founder of CoffeeWORKS, Thailand’s specialty coffee roaster. Andrew is the host of ‘My Worst Investment Ever’ podcast, with 555 episodes and counting. He is also now the new host of the Deming Institute podcast called, “In Their Own Words.”

Join us for a discussion around the ten ethics that Andrew stands for, and how you can easily adopt them in your own life – in order to become a rare and valuable member of any team, family, group, or society.  We’ll also discuss some of the major differences in Eastern vs. Western culture, with regard to ethics, corruption, and general business practices.

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 ...

82. The Centred Tradie (Mental Health Challenges)

Daniel Gaebler has an ambitious five-year goal – to reduce the number of suicides in Australia to zero. Dan is a Sydney plumber and has written a book “The Centred Tradie” about facing his inner demons and mental illness. Dan writes about confronting life events, and his mental health journey, and exposes his own extreme vulnerability in order to “help just one person”.  The book will speak loudest to men, especially in the trades (like plumbing), and encourage them to reach out to their friends and family, or different modalities of therapists, to help them get back on track and make life better for themselves and their loved ones.  I speak with Dan about how he recognized that he needed help, where trauma originates and how it can manifest later in life, the impact that poor mental health and suicide have on loved ones and communities in general, and the many people - therapists, coaches, mentors, and his wife -  that helped Dan along his journey. Discussion Points Dan’s first signs that he needed help Rage, trauma, and frustration as a teen Connecting with others, taking the first step to getting help Writing a book had tremendous healing power Love languages, Dan’s wife, and overcoming trauma Mental health in business - examples of helping team members Things you can do to improve your mental health Simple things we can do right now? Notice, listen, and ask, “Are you okay?” ...
