In this week’s podcast episode, Ashley Andersen and Adam Colette join Laura for Part 2 of their conversation on the role of the modern man in leadership. Plus, they deepen the discussion on Dare to Lead™ for Men, a joint program with 10X Leadership Lab and The Modern Man School, that teaches you how to live and lead with true courage. If you didn’t listen yet, be sure to catch up on Part 1 of our conversation here.

Adam Colette has dedicated his life to mastering the art of creating positive change. He 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 continue our conversation on the changing role of men as leaders. No longer about the traditional concepts of bravery and strength, real courage in leadership means learning to be vulnerable, living from your authentic values, creating trust with yourself and others, and learning to acknowledge and grow from failures.
