87. Building Relationships at Work with Gary De Rodriguez



My guest today is Gary De Rodriguez, CEO of Peopleistic. Recognized as an internationally acclaimed expert in the science of human excellence and known as the People Mechanic, Gary De Rodriguez has had over 35 years of experience in designing and integrating the most influential models of psychology-based systems of success in leadership, human behavior, relationships, communication, and team dynamics.

Gary has trained and studied with Indian mystics, a Lakota medicine woman, and the Aboriginal law keeper for all the tribes of Western Australia, the Kahunas of the Hawaiian Islands, and the Incan shamans of Peru. He has privately coached over 11,600 people worldwide and is internationally recognized as the go-to person for personal and professional breakthroughs. 

You’ll hear about Gary’s personal breakthrough after a Donovan concert, his own experiences with generational trauma, how trauma (and perceived trauma) manifests in the body and mind, and how leaders need to dig deep enough to resolve their own unconscious belief systems that may be holding them back from becoming respected, successful leaders of their organizations.
