Effectively Communicating and Motivating Young Men
Young men are instinctually wired to succeed, but to do that, they need from guidance from adults. This presentation will help adults communicate to young men using “biological language” – not psychological processing. This is the key to motivating a young man to tap into his innate intelligence. This will lead him to do the “right” thing.
Leading Young Men in the RIGHT Direction
With unhealthy media messages and digital dominance, young men become confused about what's most important for their personal and family health. Adults learn how to become “mentors” – in order to lead young men into lives grounded with self-respect, motivation and happiness. The mentors learn how to nurture young men’s values and the positive behaviors that demonstrate them.
Challenging Young Men to Be Happier & More Independent
This workshop will show you why a large portion of the modern approaches to working with young men fall short of their goals. By combining the wisdom of ancestral rites of passage initiations and adolescent male biology, adults will learn how to activate the impulse for young men to become responsible for their lives and the challenges of the adult world.
