Workshops & Speakers To Include:
Patrick Rhone - Who Are You?
The answer to that question for many of us is… Complicated. There’s the person you think you are, there’s the person others think you are, and there’s also the person you’d like to be. But who are You, really? Are any of those “Yous” an accurate reflection of who you are or who you’d like to be? If the things you are doing don’t align with who you think you are or who you would like to be, perhaps you need to change your tasks or adjust your aspirations. We will dig down deep into this and come up with some methods of how to bring all of the possible “Yous” into alignment with the real, singular, You.
Jesse Ross - Man in the 21st Century
What’s it like to be a man in an environment where the balance of power seems to be shifting in many different ways? Let’s talk about the importance of being an ally, how to support emerging voices -- both in the moment and behind the scenes -- without drowning them out, and how to maintain a seat at the table for life’s big conversations.
"(Not So) Great Expectations" with Nick Kesler
It’s tough being a man out there. We all carry the burden of expectations that have been placed on us since birth. Society, spouses, employers, kids, parents -- they all look to us to fill roles in their lives. But what are those roles? Do they tell us what they need from us, or are we just supposed to know? How do we acknowledge, ignore, or change these expectations to find balance in our lives?
“Shame on You” with Mark Meier
Rooted in many different places from throughout our life, shame is a prevalent and common emotion experienced by all people. For men, shame is often associated with money, career, parenting, partnering, and “fitting in” themes. When shame becomes toxic, it can destroy our sense of self, erode our ability to feel joy, and in the process make forming meaningful relationships nearly impossible. In this interactive session we will talk about where shame comes from, how it takes root, and just what to do about its noxious presence in our lives.
"Get a Grip... on your finances" with Art Lundgren
How do you determine your financial well-being? There are plenty of apps, advisors and media pundits willing to weigh in. There can be value in cutting through all this noise and assessing the situation for yourself.
This session will offer a few simple steps to gauge your financial situation. Once you know where you stand, you will be better able to think and talk about your position. This can offer powerful knowledge in making decisions and moving forward to a place of financial wellness.
"Authentic Vulnerability" with JC Lippold
Paul Simon said it best: I am a rock. I am an island. And yet … what happens when we let down our guard and allow others to see inside us? It’s easier than it may seem. Find out how being authentically vulnerable can help you get to know your strengths better and open yourself to a world of new possibilities. We’ll learn some simple tools that you can keep in your backpocket so whenever you need to feel #allthethings and share that with others.
"Leverage tension into strength" with Mark Schneider
Knowing how to build and use tension is key in building strength. This session will be physical as we learn and practice how to leverage the tensions we feel with anxiety, frustration, anger, and other mental states into a tool to become stronger and more resilient.Topics we will cover will include tension, strength, embodiment, power, eccentric loading, explosiveness and other ideas.
