What is Healthy Masculinities?

Although this is a subjective cultural term, these are the general pillars we employ:

  1. Respect and empathy for others (this covers gender, sexuality, race, age, general “otherness”)
  2. Peaceful communication, interaction, and relationships with others
  3. Commitment to some form of consistent self-awareness and self-mastery
  4. Acceptance of the responsibility of leadership and teamwork

Why is “Masculinities” plural?

This simply acknowledges that there are multiple definitions of “what it means to be masculine” and therefore it frees us up to culturally redefine masculinity for a modern era.

- Dale Thomas Vaughn

What is healthy masculinity? On this show we talk a lot about what isn’t healthy, behavior like the alpha male syndrome or the opposite: acting like a doormat.

5 Reasons Why 6-Week Goals Are Better


The shininess of the new calendar will wane once we get closer to February… and all of those feelings of positive momentum can wear off as well if you’re not still motivated this time next month.

Most people don’t even write down their resolutions anywhere meaningful, so looking back on 12 months in late December always feels hollow. In my experience with coaching professionals on goal-setting, the best way to shift your habits is to set out consecutive 6-8 week projects that feel motivating. Basically at the beginning and end of each quarter, you’ll set project goals and then measure them respectively.
