Welcome to another episode of "Inspire Change with Gunter."Lorin and I are thrilled to introduce you to the new edition of "Making Good Men Great: Surfing a New Masculinity." This edition is not just an update; it is a heartfelt call to action and a comprehensive guide for men striving to redefine their masculinity in a world that is constantly evolving.

For over four decades, we have dedicated our lives to helping people navigate the complexities of their emotional, psychological, and social worlds. Our journey began with a shared passion for understanding human behaviour and fostering positive change. Through countless sessions of therapy, coaching, and consulting, we have witnessed firsthand the transformative power of learning to be more self-aware, and understanding how to be more flexible, adaptable, and resilient.
In today's society, traditional notions of masculinity are being challenged and redefined. This book emerges as a beacon of insight and guidance, offering a framework for understanding and cultivating a new kind of masculinity—one that is authentic, empathetic, and accountable. Our journey in writing "Making Good Men Great" has been driven by a profound belief that men have the potential to be compassionate, courageous, and connected.

This book is not merely a theoretical exploration; it is a practical blueprint for personal growth and societal transformation. Through thought-provoking insights and actionable advice, we aim to empower men to transcend outdated stereotypes and embrace a more inclusive and holistic vision of manhood.

We use the metaphor of surfing as central to our narrative. Just as surfers attune themselves to the rhythms of the ocean, men must learn to navigate the ever-changing currents of gender dynamics with grace and adaptability. Masculinity, like the ocean, is vast, dynamic, and ever-shifting. Our hope is to guide men in riding these waves with skill and integrity.

"Making Good Men Great" addresses the core issues that impact both women and men: patriarchy and its pervasive influence. We explore how patriarchal values—territoriality, hierarchy, acquisition, competition, and combativeness—shape and often distort the male experience. By redefining these values, we can foster a masculinity that is more inclusive, compassionate, and supportive.
In this edition, we emphasise four core goals to enhance men's lives:
  1. Understand the difference between unhealthy masculinity and being healthy
  2. Being the best man you can be in a relationship with yourself.
  3. Being a great man in your relationships with others.
  4. Being a great leader in the company of men.

These goals are essential for men seeking to navigate the complexities of modern life. We delve into the psychological and social challenges men face today, from mental health struggles to evolving gender roles. By integrating knowledge from various disciplines such as psychology, anthropology, and history, we provide a comprehensive understanding of what it means to be a man in today's world.
"Making Good Men Great" is more than just a book; it's a call to action. It encourages men to embark on a journey of self-discovery and collective transformation, fostering a world where men are celebrated for their compassion, integrity, and dedication to positive change. As we stand at a cultural crossroads, "Making Good Men Great" offers a guiding light for men aspiring to contribute to a more equitable and compassionate society.

As you listen to today's episode, we invite you to reflect on the legacy you want to leave behind. Think about how you can become not just a good man but a great one. Join us on this journey from good to great, and let's ride the waves of a new masculinity towards a future brimming with hope, unity, and profound transformation.
