Enter into the world of men and masculinity. Today we’ll explore coaching with men. This includes how coaching with men may miss the mark due to assumptions and stereotypes as well as what works in coaching men.
Patrick Williams speaks with psychologist Ed Adams, recipient of the Practitioner of the Year Award of Division 51 (Men and Masculinity) of the American Psychological Association. Ed won this award in part because of his groundbreaking success as the founder of the non-profit organization Men Mentoring Men. We’ll explore the emotions, needs, perceptions, and language of men. Ed will report on his experiences doing therapy, coaching, and facilitating over a thousand men’s meetings. He’ll also explain why he has found that compassion is often the centerpiece of a man’s growth and happiness.
