When most of us think about leadership, we think about inspiring, motivating, and influencing others. But rarely do we think deeply about our vision for a business, organization, or family. Ironic considering vision is the foundation of inspiration, motivation, and influence.

Today, I am privileged to be joined by a man who has been a tremendous leader to me on my path to build and lead the Order of Man movement. We cover so much in this conversion including the importance of a “vision grid,” how to effectively respond to resistance, four characteristics of great leadership, the difference between your “circle of concern” and your “circle of influence,” and the power of vision-driven leadership.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The science of different things
  • The power of simplicity
  • Distilling information
  • Where all change begins
  • Casting vision
  • Hacking your belief system
  • Delusional vs. believable
  • The scope of possibilities
  • Vision vs. strategy
  • Adjusting your vision
  • Fear of missing out
  • Diagnosing your life 36:40
  • Finding inspiration
  • Being able to sell it
  • An inspirational-deficit world
  • Think of the end from the beginning

MICHAEL HYATT

My guest today is Michael Hyatt. He is an author, podcaster, speaker, and former chairman of Thomas Nelson publishing.

I came across Michael’s work years ago as I was launching the Order of Man podcast and for the last 5 years, I’ve been following his advice and implementing his strategies for growing and leading a movement, building effective organizational strategies, and taking charge of my business and personal life.

So, when his team reached out requesting to have Michael on our podcast, I jumped at the opportunity to have a conversation with a man who has been extremely influential in my life.

He is a New York Times Bestselling author and today, he is here to talk with us about his new book, The Vision Driven Leader.

IRON COUNCIL

This month (April 2020) in the Iron Council, we’re discussing and implementing strategies from our monthly conversation, A Life Examined.

In the midst of all this Coronavirus stuff, it’s likely that you have a bit more time on your hands than normal and, rather than waste this valuable time, you ought to consider using it as an opportunity to learn and grow.

And, that’s exactly where the Iron Council comes in. When you band with us, you’ll have access to our monthly assignments, challenges, accountability systems and tools, and brotherhood all designed to help you make the most of every day.

And, this is a great time to contemplate the purpose of your life and formulate a plan for becoming the man you have a desire to become.

Obviously, the world is entering unprecedented and unchartered territory. Every day, we’re hearing new information about the Coronavirus – some credible and some not so credible. It’s times like these that we need to turn to the experts to look for answers and solutions to the problems we face.

That’s why I’m honored to be joined by Dr. Gregory Poland, a professor of medicine at the Mayo Clinic and director of the Mayo Clinic’s Vaccine research group. Today, we talk about common misconceptions about the Coronavirus, the best approach to dealing with this threat, how vaccines are being developed, the eventuality of this disease, how this virus differs from others, and how we’ll win the war against Coronavirus.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Enforcing social distancing
  • This virus is unique
  • We don’t know the full extent
  • Flue strain circulations
  • Isolate vs. distance
  • It’ll hurt us economically
  • Shielding the most vulnerable
  • This is a war
  • Building up antibodies
  • Developing vaccines
  • How we’re reacting
  • Taking unnecessary risk
  • Sharing out of your plenty
  • Mental and spiritual health
  • Funding global health
  • Countries taking responsibilities
  • How to protect your family
  • Proper handwashing
  • Using the right-hand sanitizer

DR. GREGORY POLAND

Today, I am joined by Dr. Gregory Poland, Mary Lowell Leary professor of medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. He is also the director of the Mayo Clinic’s Vaccine Research Group and editor-in-chief of the medical journal, Vaccine.

In addition, he previously served as the president of the Health Defense Board and is the recipient of the Secretary of Defense Medal for Outstanding Public Service. With more than 30 years of work in the field of viruses and vaccines, his team is currently using immunological testing and other methods to develop a vaccine for COVID-19.

IRON COUNCIL

It’s likely that, in the wake of the Coronavirus fallout, you’ve been isolated to some degree. And, if that’s the case (even if it’s not), it’s crucial that you develop and maintain relationships with other men who are motivated and ambitious as you are.

That’s where the Iron Council comes in. We’ve created a network of over 500 men, all with their own unique perspectives and objectives, who are willing and able to accomplish big things in their lives and help you do the same.

And, although all of the men have differing goals, we’ve banded together in a common goal to become the most effective and capable men we can be (which, during these trying times, is crucial).

We have a time and battle-tested system for helping you accomplish big things on the home, personal, and business front and all you have to do is tap into the framework and network, and do the work required.

Most of you are familiar with Tucker Max. Regardless of what you think about him, there is no fence-sitting. You either love the guy or hate him. But that’s part of the reason I wanted to have a conversation with him – to find out what makes him so polarizing and how he feels about that.

That said, the biggest reason I wanted to talk with him is to learn about his ability to redefine himself from college frat boy to successful entrepreneur, husband, and father. I think we can all relate messing some things up along the path and many of us have or are working on our redemption story. Today, Tucker and I talk about speaking the truth, overcoming judgment, the reality of the “zero f’s” mentality, and, ultimately, how to redefine yourself.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The pain of staying the same
  • Fixing what’s inside
  • Going through therapy
  • Getting fired
  • Getting rejected
  • Writing a Best Seller
  • Scribe Media
  • Finding your personal truth
  • Negotiating reality
  • Tribal warfare
  • Consumerism culture
  • Plant medicine therapy
  • The best version of yourself
  • Separating from your ego
  • Breaking down barriers
  • Controlling the narrative
  • Masculine movement of feminism
  • How to uncover your story

TUCKER MAX

Most of you know my guest today, Tucker Max. If you’re like me, you ran across one of his New York Times Bestselling books in an airport or bookstore. That’s likely the case because he’s sold over 4,500,000 copies of them.

He’s been credited with starting the literary genre, “fratire” where he detailed and documented his college-day exploits. And, although, that’s what made him famous, his ability to redefine himself from those days to who he is today is what really had me interested in talking with him.

He’s now the founder of Scribe Media and is helping other people tell their own stories in their own unique way and give a voice to those who need it and for those who need to hear it.

IRON COUNCIL

Gents, you’ve heard about the Iron Council before but what I wanted to share with you today is something that we are working on starting next week.

We call it the Twelve-Week Battle Plan and it’s a system we’ve developed over the past five years to help you accomplish more in a 90-day span than you potentially have in an entire year. In fact, when I wrote my book, Sovereignty, I completed it in a Battle Planning cycle using the same system the members of the Iron Council are using.

Obviously, life has taken a very strange turn for most of you in 2020 but using the Battle Plan and the accountability found inside the Iron Council will ensure that you get back out ahead of things and make the most of a very strange situation.

In the midst of all the variables and uncertainties, it can be a real challenge to create victories for yourself on the home, business, or personal front. Fortunately, you have control over the one variable that makes the biggest difference – your mindset.

My guest today is retired Navy SEAL Command Master Chief, Jason Gardner. We talk about the laws of combat, transitioning from successful warrior to successful homesteader, overcoming social anxiety and PTSD, and ultimately how to embrace and execute the mindsets for victory.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Organic farming
  • Homesteading
  • Business agility
  • Transitioning from SEALS
  • Finding your mission
  • Striking-up conversation
  • Fight or flight response
  • PTSD
  • A paradigm shift
  • Coping with stress
  • Combat deployment
  • The Laws of Combat
  • Mindsets for victory
  • The disease of victory

JASON GARDNER

What a powerful conversation I have to share with you today with an absolutely incredible man. His name is Jason Gardner and he is a retired Navy SEAL Command Master Chief with over 30 years of military service under his belt with 9 deployments across the globe.

He’s served at every level of leadership from SEAL sniper to lead instructor for Naval Special Warfare Group One Training Detachment to SEAL Team Five Command Master Chief. He is also the recipient of the Silver Star, two Bronze Stars, and a purple heart.

He now serves as a leadership instructor, speaker, and strategic advisor at Echelon Front. Not only is he a badass on the battlefield but every other facet of life as well.

LEGACY

Men (specifically fathers), we are coming down to the wire on closing down registration for the LEGACY EXPERIENCE and I want you and your son to be there.

Check your calendars because it’s going to be held June 11th-14th, 2020 on my property here in Maine.

This is an experience unlike any other and it’s designed to be 3 ½ days of extensive physical and intellectual competition and camaraderie between you and 19 other fathers/sons. We’ve created an event that will quite literally transform the relationship that you and your boy have together and give you the tools, resources, and framework for you to usher your boy into manhood in a world that seems to be increasingly dismissive of it.

If you’re even the least bit interested, head to www.orderofman.com/legacy to watch a quick video of our last event and learn more about what the weekend entails. But do it quickly as we only have 3 spots remaining.

Today, we tackle a conversation we’ve never had on this podcast – biblical masculinity. As you men are well aware, Order of Man is a non-religious movement but that doesn’t mean we can’t or shouldn’t look at all available paths to the type of men we have a desire to be.

And, I can think of no better guest to have this type of conversation than Bishop Robert Barron, auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. During our conversation, we talk about David as an example of biblical masculinity, individual sovereignty vs. God’s sovereignty, literal and figurative interpretations of the bible, Jesus Christ as a fighter, and choosing to live the commandments.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The great narratives
  • How David emerges
  • Lessons of humility
  • A willingness to engage
  • Man’s capability to protect
  • Engaging through non-violence
  • After the resurrection
  • Listening to the Lord
  • The sovereignty of God
  • Governing your family
  • Discerning your mission
  • Twelve-year-old Jesus
  • Finding true power
  • Clinging to worldly power
  • The discipline of the gym
  • Respect for your freedom
  • Choosing your character
  • Building a moral wall
  • Legitimate self-care
  • Biblical literacy

BISHOP ROBERT BARRON

Gents, I’ve been looking forward to introducing my guest to you today. His name is Bishop Robert Barron. He currently serves as the auxiliary bishop to the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and is the founder of Word on Fire Catholic Ministries.

He’s been asked to speak at Facebook, Google, and Amazon on the subject of religion, discussed and debated with Jordan Peterson and Ben Shapiro, and serves as a religious correspondent for NBC, Fox News, and CNN.

In addition, he reaches nearly 2,000,000 people on his social media accounts and over 350,000 people receive his daily email reflections. Obviously, the man is very influential and, during our discussion today, I think you’ll hear why.

LEGACY

Men (specifically fathers), we are coming down to the wire on closing down registration for the LEGACY EXPERIENCE and I want you and your son to be there.

Check your calendars because it’s going to be held June 11th-14th, 2020 on my property here in Maine.

It’s easy to get distracted by everything that life has to offer us as men. Whether we’re attempting to live up to impossible standards, chasing other people’s dreams, or spinning around in circles being busy, but not productive, you’ve got to find a way to focus your attention and energy on the things that truly matter.

My guest today is Vincent “Rocco” Vargas. I’ll get into all that he is doing in his life in a bit but for now, let’s just say that he’s found a way to identify and pursue what really matters to him. We talk about becoming a “Ride or Die, Dad,” what it means to operate from your “Power Base,” evolving your inner circle, learning to lead and follow, and how to become a confident, grounded man.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • A renaissance man
  • Identifying success
  • Morals, values, and beliefs
  • Importance of being fit
  • Parallels to leadership
  • Communicating fairly
  • Maintaining respect
  • Ride or die
  • Fine-tuning mistakes
  • Self-accountability
  • Responding to failure
  • Establishing your pawer-base
  • Building future leaders
  • Striving to be more
  • Having the right motives
  • Working with veterans
  • The growth of an actor

VINCENT “ROCCO” VARGAS

My guest today is Vincent “Rocco” Vargas and if ever there was a Renaissance man, he is it.

He is a former Army Ranger and Drill Sergeant, husband, father, barber, entrepreneur, coach, actor, producer, and writer. In the couple of years that I’ve gotten to know him, I can tell that not only is he someone who is willing to pursue his interests and dreams, he’s also someone who knows exactly what he wants outside of notoriety, popularity, and accolades – to be a great family man.

Today, you’re going to hear what that looks like, how he found his path and the strategies he uses to pursue everything he wants.

LEGACY

Gents, we’re getting very close on closing up our 3rd inaugural Legacy Experience which is being held June 11th – 14th, 2020 on my property in Maine.

I just had a contractor come out last week for a couple of buildouts we’re taking care of prior to our fathers and sons who will be attending.

This is going to be an event unlike any other for you and your son between the ages of 8 – 15. The whole weekend is designed to be mentally, physically, and emotionally demanding so that you and your son will walk away with a new perspective on your relationship and a deeper bond between you two.

I have seen incredible transformations in father/son relationships through this 3 ½ experience and I want you guys to experience that for yourself. If you’re interested, head to www.orderofman.com/legacy to watch a quick video and lock in one of the last 2 remaining spots.

Again, head to www.orderofman.com/legacy to claim your seat.
