Father & Son

Father & Son

I only started to really learn what being a Dad was when I took the uniform off in 2011 at the age of 45 & started the inner journey of what it was like to grow up without my Dad after I lost my Dad at the age of 12. 👪

During the last 2 years I facilitated the “Be A Great Dad” workshop and learned so much more about myself when I listened to the Dads present. 👂

Here are “5 Things Great Dads Do” to be more involved with the special people in our life, things I personally try to work on every day:

1. Be There

2. Be You

3. Show Love & Respect 💘

4. Be An Example

5. Be A Life Coach & Teacher

My journey as a Dad continues, so do the struggles, but I have a target-goal I am aiming for. 🎯

I feel very blessed to have been invited to facilitate a 2nd keynote during the last 2 weeks.

The success of the keynotes would not have been possible without the generous support of others.

I would like to offer the following points for consideration in the event that you have an upcoming message to share:

1. Collaborate with the person who invited you to do the keynote & collectively work together to put the keynote together 💑

2. Be vulnerable, share your personal story in the introduction 🎤

3. Share stories about the audience, great way to recognize the amazing things your audience is doing 📖

4. Use the elements of humour & surprise. I used the acronym POT (Purpose-Opportunity-Time)

5. Engage the audience, have them participate. I used “But Wait” with the audience replying “There’s More” ⏰

6. Always make it about the audience.

I would like to thank my mentor Joe Grondin, Lisa Smith from Eastern College, Younes Bouida from Soccer NB as well as fellow Toastmasters for the opportunity to learn & grow as a speaker. ⚽

Get out and share your stories-gifts, the world is waiting to hear them. 🎁

Delightful News – Senator Hartling

Delightful News – Senator Hartling




The most delightful news this week was the announcement of Nancy Hartling’s appointment to the Senate. To those of us who know Nancy, this won’t come as a surprise since we know that nobody is more worthy and deserving of this honor. Nancy will certainly bring a breath of much needed fresh air into one of the democratic world’s greatest institutions.

My delight is more specific. I first met Nancy when she signed up for an Emotional Fitness Coach Training course – the first (and only) one I taught in New Brunswick. At the same time, I discovered that Nancy had imported the “Be a Great Dad” program I had developed in Calgary, so we had a connection even before we met.

So now Canada has a Senator who is a trained Emotional Fitness Coach. Imagine how that can change the way decision-makers communicate! When the leaders of our, and every country, can share the tools of Emotional Fitness, we shall be well on our way to world peace.

Well done, Senator Nancy, and we wish you the greatest of success and fulfillment in your new position.
