1. Support a man to discover his mission and purpose.
2. Support a man to take space in ways that are effective for him.
Specific skills to support another man to find his silence and spaciousness, from where he can be more creative and effective in the world. This includes not only how to support a man in meditation, but also ways of centering himself through the body.
3. Supporting a man to open his heart to love deeply,in a way that is not only felt by him, but also by everyone close to him.

More and more, listening is being understood as the key not only to harmonious relationship, but also to effective leadership. Learn specific skills you can teach another man on how to become a powerful listener.
5. Learn how to support clients to feel their emotional wounds, but not be run by them.
Learn ways to support coaching clients to develop greater degrees of emotional literacy and maturity, to be able to feel their feelings in such a way that they dissipate and don’t turn into actions that later lead to regret.
6. Support another man to transform his anger into powerful leadership.
Many men today feel that they are faced with an impossible choice: either to act out their anger in ways that are destructive, or to become a wuss, a man who no longer has testicles.Learn how to support a man to transform anger into presence, so as to be an authoritative and trustworthy leader.
7. Support another man to develop deep, lasting
and nurturing friendships with other men.
Perhaps the most neglected area of conscious masculinity is the way that men can be supportive to one another. Various factors including homophobia and the feminization of men has led to diminishing the value of friendships between men. Learn how to coach your client to either develop or join a men’s group.
8. Learn specific coaching techniques to support another man to develop accountability and to keep his word.
9. Support your clients to develop a sense of humor about themselves,and so, to become a gift of lightness to the world.
10. Coach other men to develop conscious sexuality.
Most men were not raised in a way to talk openly about their sexuality or to understand either the way their own bodies work or the way a woman’s body works. Learn a number of coaching techniques to transform sexuality into a gift of love.
11. Support other men to develop a rich and deeply respectful relationship to the feminine.
For thousands of years men have been dominant in society and it’s only in the last few decades that we have seen the re-emergence of the feminine standing in her own right. Coach your clients to re-invent their relationship to the feminine based in mutual respect and cooperation.
12. Support a man to become aware of our history.
Very often men feel isolated in their understanding of their situation and lose insight of the tremendous momentum the past plays in the way we experience ourselves as men. Coach your clients to develop awareness of how both masculinity and femininity lives within a historical context.
