TNT ESQ – Doing More Good: with Dennis Pitocco

co-hosted with Teresa Quinlan

Rhys Thomas and Teresa Quinlan are bringing you guests to challenge the status quo. Explode the Status Quo. The only way to DO differently is to THINK differently. And business needs us to think differently, as leaders, so that we can explode through the barriers that keep us stuck. We welcome Dennis Pitocco to this episode of TNT!

In our conversation, we cover so much!

  • Work isn’t always an occupation…it can be an ‘occupassion’ which fires up the motivation and desire
  • The desire to help others and create impact comes from a lifelong lesson to always do good, always do the right thing even when no one’s looking
  • Action trumps knowledge and it’s about the doing; when you do, you get more than you give – call it good karma or serendipity
  • You look at the world differently once you see the world. We have to get outside of our bubbles to experience people and cultures that aren’t our own
  • Doing good stuff comes from being blessed and using that to uplift others
  • A degree in life is more valuable than the degrees/certificates on the walls; not to say that education isn’t important. It is. It just isn’t everything


During our conversation, Dennis mentioned a document on BizCatalyst 360° for Taking Action now – The Do More RoadMap. Here it is!

I work with individuals who have suffered a traumatic experience in their lifetime, who no longer wish to have it impact their mental health, their relationships with others and dictate how they show up in this world. When you show up as your #truself you’re empowered by that inner voice, you let go of attachment and judgement, are free to move beyond fear and expectation, to truly manifest your dreams into reality. There remains a taboo around the word trauma and many people when asked might assume the defensive and say, “not me”, for fear of how this may be perceived by others, but every single one of us has faced adversity at some time which has either built us up or broken us down. Personality traits, behaviour patterns, belief structures all stem from our past experiences but coping mechanisms forged in the fire only ever weigh us down, lead to more pain and deny our #truself from returning. The truth is it’s not the incident itself which is the real trauma it is the response to it and the resulting impact you allow it to have on your life and those around you, from that point forward, which does the real harm. Choosing curiosity over fear, self-compassion over self-judgement and acceptance over denial are the first steps we use to break down the protective walls which were once built up for protection, but which ultimately keep us stuck living out familiar storylines and conforming to a pale imitation of our #truself. Having studied many different modalities and practices during my own journey including kundalini yoga, breathwork, meditation, indigenous ancient wisdoms, emotional intelligence, mindfulness and loving awareness, Buddhist psychology, Vedic scripture and astrology, Zen practices and Taoist philosophy, I am uniquely blessed to help guide you along this path of your awakening and reconnecting you with your #truself.
