"No Man Is An Island"
This is a safe group for men wanting to become more effective in their pursuits.
Together we help each other identify and surmount the blocks that prevent us from living up to our full potential in our careers, relationships, physical and emotional health, and personal goals. We support, not advise, one another.
IMPROVE: Follow through
Sexual satisfaction (for you and them)
Diet and exercise
Gender role identity
Relationship to the masculine and feminine
This group works for 4 reasons:
1- shows men they aren't the only men with tough to solve problems
2- gives an outlet for men's inherent problem-solving obsession
3- is emotionally sensitive and inclusive but not emotionally-obsessed
4- teaches 2 effective methods to solving problems (SMART goals and social support)
Each man identifies one particular goal to tackle in a highly focused way for 8 consecutive weeks. We open every session with uninterrupted floor time for each member to share their progress, struggles, questions, and requests to the group. Group sharing and processing will follow. We close each session with a round of intention setting for the next week, using the "SMART" method (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-Bound). We report back to the group on our successes, failures, and discoveries the following week. We support and encourage one another by empathizing, sharing personal experiences, uncovering blind spots, raising accountability, brainstorming solutions, and building man-to-man connection. With humor, courage, and honesty, we bring our strengths as men to the aid of one another while also receiving the strength and guidance of other men. This group welcomes laughter, frustration, grief, hope, confusion, and every man's unique gifts.
