Ep23 Developing Deep Leadership in Your Organization
In this episode, hosts Gary De Rodriguez and Jason Croft dive into the concept of "deep leadership", a topic rarely explored in today's leadership discussions.
Gary and Jason start by acknowledging the prevalence of superficial leadership training that focuses on behavioral changes without delving into the core drivers of behavior. They emphasize that real leadership transformation requires a profound understanding of what truly motivates human behavior: our emotions. To initiate sustainable change in leadership, it's essential to uncover the roots of emotional responses and perceptions that shape our actions.
Gary De Rodriguez shares his personal experiences and insights into why deep leadership is so critical. He highlights how unresolved emotional triggers from our past can sabotage our leadership effectiveness, leading to conflicts and disruptions within teams and organizations.
Jason Croft chimes in, emphasizing that deep leadership not only applies to those in leadership roles but also to those being led. It's a multi-layered approach that involves self-awareness, emotional resolution, and authentic communication.
The hosts introduce the "Trauma Memory Solution Technique," a content-free process for resolving deep-seated emotional issues without the need to disclose personal stories. This approach allows individuals to neutralize emotional triggers, which can otherwise erode trust and authenticity in the workplace.
Gary and Jason stress the importance of leaders cultivating self-awareness, mastering emotional responses, and owning their emotional states to become truly effective leaders. They highlight that this process not only enhances personal growth but also fosters a more humane, compassionate, and empathetic leadership style.
Join us on this enlightening journey into the world of deep leadership, where we explore the power of self-awareness, emotional resolution, and authentic transformation.

Ep19 How to Upgrade Your Language
Welcome to Episode 19 of Concentric.
Today we've got another quick-win episode for you around the idea of upgrading your language.
This applies to the language we use in our heads and in our everyday interactions.
We often don't think about it too deeply. We simply consider that it's just how we speak or what we would normally say in a given situation.
It's really important to analyze what we are saying to ourselves and to others on a regular basis. Those things are often reflections of what we think about ourselves at a deeper level and the beliefs that we hold about the world. Conversely, by changing and upgrading our language, we can be proactive in shaping new beliefs and developing new habits and outlooks on life.
Gary walks us through some quick and simple approaches to get started with this right away.
Ep18 Getting Your Relationship Back in Alignment
Welcome to Episode 18 of Concentric.
In today's "Quick Wins" episode, we're covering how to quickly get back in alignment in your relationship.

Gary walks us through some really powerful tools here so that we can get back into alignment quickly with ourselves first in terms of how we're framing everything and then working with our significant other or that friend and getting back into alignment with them by opening up that communication.
All right, let's jump in!
