Authentic Masculinity Seminar

“Paul led our administrators and faculty through a day-long retreat on teaching, mentoring, and understanding boys and masculinity. Christ school has been in ‘the boy business’ for 118 years — but maintaining relevance is a primary focus of ours. Paul helped us identify what we do well and what we need to work on in mentoring today’s young men. Paul was so effective, we are scheduling him to work with our students in the near future.”

                 - Paul M. Krieger, Headmaster Christ School, NC



“In thirty years of working in the military, corporate industry, and education, this training was the best I’ve ever experienced.”

“Your presentation was the best professional development session I have been a part of in my time in education.”

“It was such a pleasure to move so smoothly — and for good reason — between neuroscience, Greek philosophy, sociology, and current examples.”

“It validated what we are doing and pointed the way for where we hope to go.”
