Welcome to the Culture Maker podcast, the podcast that's all about helping dads lead well at home.  Today is the third episode that I've done that's all about helping us see the things in our homes that need to change, so that we can create the homes that we all want to come home to.

Welcome to the Culture Maker podcast — the podcast that's all about helping dads lead well at home. And today I'd like you to meet shame. Not a guy called Shane, but a thing called Shame.

Today I am interviewing, a guy by the name of Paul Stanyer.  Paul is an incredible guy who runs an addiction recovery program called Recovery, and it's tremendously effective.

And we hear about Paul's, personal story as well as the story of others in recovery,  and the effective...

Being a dad is tricky, I know for the ladies listening, being a mum is tricky as well, in-fact, that's an understatement, there is no dad alive that wants your job.

But what does it mean to be a dad and why don't we talk about it more. What is a dads job description?

This stuff is tricky, because us dads need things kept simple - we don't like complicated. You know, we just want to know what to do.<...

What makes a good dad? My answer might surprise you. It’s not about being a masculine dad. It’s not about being the provider.  It’s not about the amount of time spent with your kids or even being in the same home. Rich dad, poor dad — the outcomes are the same. And being a good dad doesn’t necesarily end with divorce.

I’ve been deep diving into dozens of research papers on fatherhood and this weeks podcast is a quick summary of the ...

In this episode we look at why the Anti Smacking Law in NZ hasn’t worked — whilst digging into the real issues in our homes.

The main question I ask is: If the anti smacking law was meant to make our homes look brighter — then why do things feel so dark?

We all want our workplaces and homes to be safe - but we’re often too soft to make them that way.

We’re not prepared to say what needs to be said, too tired to lean into the mess, or too distracted to see our leadership missing.

But we tell ourselves it’s ok — because being soft is safe — forgetting that safe places have structure, limits and boundaries. They’re also lead by engaged and present leaders.

Safe places are led, not by sof...

Today I am with Conrad Wanoa, Production Manager at Flare Outdoor Fires.

Conrad would be the first person to say he's not perfect or that he's not a perfect dad — but today we are sharing his tips for how to make a blended family work.
