“Be happy and healthy, be respectful, responsible, resilient, and be kind.” - Rob Glazer, Rob Glazer is a very successful business owner who built a $20 million global business recognised as a best place to work by Inc, Fortune, Forbes, Entrepreneur, the Boston Globe and Glassdoor. He is also a father to 3 and avid outdoors family man. We discuss among other things how incorporating a value based system of doing family life is really not that different from running a successful organisation. We talk about the incredible value of creating vision boards, setting goals and being accountable to those goals. We also talk about what it means to let your child find their independence and push past their fear of the unknown. The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad were: The value of family meetings is often underestimated. Giving yourself the permission not to do things that you’re not good at and to focus on the things that you are good at is immensely powerful. Do things that push yourself and your children out of their comfort zone can teach them that anything you desire can be realised as long as you do the work that is required.

“I think we make the business of parenting disproportionally difficult - if we assume that everything is within our control.” Rory Sutherland on Rory Sutherland is one of the most influential men in the advertising world, a charismatic speaker and Dad of twins. He’s the former Vice Chairman of Ogilvy Group, has served as Chair of the Judges in Cannes and is a best-selling author. He is very intelligent, fun and will get your brain and heart to fire up. Do yourself a favour and listen to this lighthearted discussion around the sheer disruption that parenting brings to an otherwise tidy, domesticated life. The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad were: It’s important in a multi-child household to keep the rules the same for everyone That there are some things that parenting cannot change so there is really no upside in getting too upset about that. Our job as parents is to prevent catastrophe.

“Children need equal amounts of unconditional love and unequivocal authority.” Dr. John Rosemond on John is 72, married for 52 years, 2 children and 7 grandchildren between the ages of 13 to 25. John is an American columnist, highly sought after public speaker, and author of 11 best-selling parenting books and often seen as controversial in today’s popular parenting views. He has worked in family psychology since 1971 and refers to himself as an “opposing voice to psychological correctness”. In this session John shares his views on child-centered vs. adult-centered parenting, natural authority and discipline, building your child’s self-esteem, teaching humanity, and being a husband and wife first and a father and mother second. We cover speech characteristics, codependency and his concept of the parenting “hump”. The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad were: Be a husband and wife first and a mother and father second. I must not add “OK” at the end of a request to my child. One of the greatest gifts I can give my children is the understanding that they are capable human beings – not solving every problem in life, but being capable of dealing with it To book Philipp as a keynote speaker on “Empowering Dads & Facilitating Family Success” visit GUEST (John Rosemond): LinkedIn: Website: Books: Philipp Hartmann (host): Web: LinkedIn: To book Philipp as a keynote speaker on “Empowering Dads & Facilitating Family Success” visit --- Send in a voice message:

“The best advice I can give myself as a dad is to spend one-on-one quality time with each son,” Hao Lam on Hao Lam’s story as a dad is powerful and super inspirational. Hao Lam is a refugee and dad of two sons (23 AND 20) from Vietnam, now living in Seattle. He has been married to his wife Lisa, for 27 years.

Hao shares openly about fatherhood during hardship, his mistakes, his regrets and his learnings as a father. The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad were: If I’m not going to die, it’s probably not such a big deal. Am I treating my parents as well as I am treating my children? The more you push your children, the less they will want to come. Always tell your children that you love them & do make time for them.

“Stay humble and accept the humility that comes as a parent. There is so much we want to do for our children and there is so much we try to do, and in the end, they have their lives that they will lead and there is only so much we can do.”  Mark Cronin, on Mark lives in Long Island and has been married for 38 years. He has 3 boys, Patrick (29), James (26), and John (24), who has down syndrome. Mark and John are the co-founders of John’s Crazy Socks, which was John’s idea. They sell crazy socks and employ dozens of employees with special needs. Their mission? To spread happiness! The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad were: I truly found Mark inspiring because he is humble and real. Be positive, no matter what. I’ll think twice before I “soften” things for my kids who might struggle with something. If your children tell you they want something, be sure they understand what it takes to achieve it “You want to set goals that people have to reach to attain. If they’re too easy, it is uninteresting, and if it is too far out there, you're going to quit, but if they make you stretch, and get outside your comfort zone and reach for something, that is the sweet spot, for all of us and for our kids.” Mark Cronin on GUEST (guest): Mark Cronin on LinkedIn: JohnsCrazySocks: JohnsCrazySocks on Twitter: Facebook: Instagram: Links: Hope Story: Brittany's Baskets of Hope: Special Fathers Network: Philipp Hartmann (host): Web: LinkedIn: #dads #downsyndrome #family #crazysocks #fatherhood #specialneedsdads #specialneedsfamily --- Send in a voice message:

I don’t have to have all the answers as a dad. “I don’t have to have all the answers and be everything to my children. What has changed is I view my role with my kids to teach them respect for themselves and others and imbue in them a sense of joy and awe and marvel astonishment about the world. That’s it. If I can do that, I think they will have pretty good lives!” Jeff Neufeld on GUEST (Jeff Neufeld): LinkedIn: Books: Why We Sleep, by Matthew Walker Philipp Hartmann (host): Web: LinkedIn: --- Send in a voice message:
“I am 100% responsible for how I choose to walk through the door at the end of a day and parent my kids.” Craig Rodney, on Craig Rodney sold his agency and committed himself to being a full-time dad. He’s the primary parent to his boys (4 & 6), a situation which challenges the parenting narrative of our society.

Craig is very funny and the session was super fun, enjoy & thanks for listening! The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad were: Being responsible for your children is not the same as being responsible to your children. Consequences only feel like a punishment to your kids if you do not explain them upfront. I’ll make sure I am in alignment with my wife around parenting issues.

He is 59 today and married to his second wife Ronda. In the session Don tells us how he managed to deal with the pressure of losing his wife and bringing up his daughters together with truly inspirational learnings he made along the way. I learned a lot from his shares. The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where: Vet your kids’ friends. Do not focus on your mistakes. Don’t ever feel sorry for yourself. Be careful with your words: Things you say will haunt you. Find something you and your child both love and do that together to gain an opening into her life. Have frank conversations with your girls and teach them how men think. “When you think they are too young to hear something, they are probably not.” Don Lamont on GUEST (guest): LinkedIn: Books: “Raising Daughters” by Steve Biddulph Philipp Hartmann (host): Web: LinkedIn: “Lead when you don’t know how.” Don Lamont on --- Send in a voice message:

You can tell someone's priority by where they spend their time. Easiest value rule for all: if everyone in the world knew I am doing this right now, would I feel comfortable to still do this? If not, don’t do it. “It is so easy in life to live small. Always be asking yourself: am I living a big enough life right now?” Michel Kripalani on Michel Kripalani (guest): Twitter: Instagram: LinkedIn: Email: Web: Marshall Goldsmith 100 group: Philipp Hartmann (host): Web: LinkedIn: --- Send in a voice message:
“My best advice to myself as a dad is to realise how valuable I am to my children and how much my presence is needed in their lives and just be present and engaged.” Craig Wilkinson on Craig Wilkinson from South Africa is a powerful dad who has truly applied himself to his cause of being a dad and empowering other fathers.

He believes that if we can heal men we can heal the world. Craig shares his own journey as a dad and his parenting views. We discuss his divorce, what is means to be a man in todays world and how we can empower our sons and daugthers. Craig explains how woundedness manifests in children when there is no father figure around, we talk about Craig’s work sibling-led families in the townships, what surrogate fathers are and our own impact as men on other men around us. “It’s much easier to bring up a healthy child than to heal a broken adult.” Craig Wilkinson on The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad where: Pursue your daughters heart and set the standard this way. Make sure your sons know they are real men and have what it takes. Constant communication is key. The four lies of masculinity are sex, power, money and big boys don’t cry As a male use the strength you were given well. It’s about serving. “Sometimes the poorest man leaves behind the most valuable legacy because it’s not what you leave behind for someone but all about what you leave in someone.” Craig Wilkinson on Craig Wilkinson (guest): Craig on LinkedIn: Craig’s Website: Dad Coach: Craig on Twitter: Craig’s facebook: Books: Craig’s book: Raising Boys ( by Steve Biddulph The Boy Crisis ( by Dr. Warren Farrel Philipp Hartmann (host): Web: LinkedIn: --- Send in a voice message:
