The Role of The Modern Man in Leadership: Part 1 with Adam Colette

by | Leadership, Podcast

The role of the modern man in leadership and in the world is changing.

In this week’s podcast episode Laura and Ashley are joined by Adam Colette. Adam has dedicated his life to mastering the art of creating positive change. His work to protect the environment and advance social justice has led to policy changes spanning from international arenas to local governments. He’s been featured in media outlets around the globe, including the BBC, New York Times, and Politico. He is also an experienced river guide and wilderness trip leader. Adam is the Program Director for the Dogwood Alliance, Owner and Lead Trainer at The Modern Man School and co-creator of the popular relationship podcast, Reading Aloud, with his wife Marisol. Adam lives in Asheville, NC with Marisol, their one year old son Neo Luther, and puppy Pleat.

Today, we talk with Adam about the changing role of men as leaders. For years, there has been a growing acknowledgement that with men at the center of power and decision-making, we’ve seen an increase in oppression and systemic injustice. Despite all of this, Adam believes that men have a place in creating a more healthy, just, and beautiful world. So, how do you find the tools to create change? Through his work with The Modern Man School, Adam is working to create a healthy community where men can come together to educate, build community, and redefine how they show up in the world.
