MTW GUEST Banner Jayson Gaddis e71

What did your father teach you about conflict?

What does conflict look like in healthy relationships?

Do healthy couples regularly experience conflict? And if so, how do they do it?

In this episode, my guest, relationship expert Jayson Gaddis, and I mine these questions and more for useful insights to make a meaningful difference in your life.

This is the second time I’ve had Jayson on Men, This Way, and I love having Jayson on because he brings such practical insight and wisdom, actionable practices you can begin to start working with immediately in your life, and he does not disappoint in this episode as well, particularly if you’re experiencing, or ever experienced, conflict in an important relationship. Jayson just released his new book titled, “Getting To Zero: How to Work Through Conflict in your High Stakes Relationships.”

Some of the topics we dive into are, The 5 types of conflict that emerge in relationships, the basic building blocks of resolving conflict, what it can look like for a (strong-willed) couple to navigate the routine disagreements and differences that arise in the course of living together, as well as what our fathers taught us about conflict, whether they spoke it directly or just modeled it through their being. We talk about all that and more ,,, 

But first, I want you to know that ELEVATE 2022 – My year-long coaching journey for men committed to thriving in every domain of life – is now open for enrollment. I’m only inviting 12 men to go through all of 2022 with me, personally, on this adventure of a lifetime.

Who is this for?

It is for you … IF … you have achieved some level of success … yet still feel unfulfilled.

Or you’re simply seeking a greater level of fulfillment than you now have.

This is for you If you’re committed to rising above the distractions & compulsions that are sabotaging you from living your fullness as a man

If you’re done trying to lone-wolf it through life … this is for you.

If you’re stuck in some critical area … and ready for a breakthrough, or you know you need to be challenged and supported by other men, to help move you along on the journey of becoming the Man you were born to be … this is for you.

I mean, essentially, this is for you if you are committed to thriving in every area of your life. If you are a man who knows there is more beauty, more depth, more satisfaction, more fulfillment, more truth, to be experienced, than what you are currently experiencing, ELEVATE 2022 is for you.

It includes personal coaching with me throughout the entire year. And alongside a select group of solid men, your soon-to-be brothers, we’ll go on a deep-dive into the insights, distinctions, and practices that allow you to step into your deepest life purpose, create and support a thriving intimate relationship, tap into real, authentic power to truly serve your life, your loved ones, your professional aspirations, your community, and more. We’ll also have an epic in-person experience on a 5-day retreat in a beautiful nature location.

Through this experience these men, and I, will become your brothers for life. You will be challenged to go beyond your comfort zone, and you will be celebrated when you succeed, or even when you fail but you did the thing you were afraid of. Because this experience isn’t just about making more money or having more sex or achieving more of anything, only to still feel that void that just haunts us men … it’s about each of us stepping more deeply into our courageously authentic selves, and more fully offering our gifts to the world.

If this intrigues you, get the details and apply at

This isn’t for everyone.

But if you have an inkling it might be for you … apply now. Just take the next step. This could be the one of the greatest gifts you ever give yourself. The gift of brotherhood with extraordinary men.

Go to for details and to apply.

Alright, back to my conversation with Jayson Gaddis .

Take a deep breath, and stay present with us, all the way through to the end of this episode of Men, This Way …

Alright …

Let’s dive …
