What does it mean to be a

Contemporary Male Leader?

The contemporary male leader brings together all of the positives, the differences, the drivers and motivators that can create a “new” type of manager. In fact, it retires the term manager and describes the new model as a leader, a coach … someone who works with a team, not over a team.

This leader will be driven to have the following

Seven Competencies


The ability to be genuine, as in “real.”


He is comfortable with adversity, doesn’t allow it to stop him.


He is humble, e.g. respectful, open, modest, willing to look within his own reality of himself.

Sense of humor

He is playful, has a strong sense of enjoyment and is easily amused. He brings fun to his workplace.


The ability to feel for the hardship or difficulties of another person, and beyond that, a desire to see how he might be of help.

Involvement with others

He has a strong need and desire to be connected with others and to engage them in a powerful way.


He has very strong feelings and desires. He approaches his life with a sense of enthusiasm. People see the strength of his excitement and they see his “heart.”
