LOS ANGELES – Aug. 19, 2015 – PRLog — Watts Riot. Junior High Student. Father/Son Night. A Fatherless Son. The swirl of these painful events hurled a fatherless son towards a decision: To be a present and intentional father to his future children. But how? With limited knowledge of what it takes to BE that kind of father, the author went on a search for answers.
Admired Man Why? The Making of an Admired Man was birthed from the author’s experiences and thousands of hours of research, interviews and surveys, asking ‘What man do you admire?” and “Why?” Through these surveys, interviews and research, Dr. Hickey discovered consistent traits weaved through the emotion-packed stories told by the interview subjects. The men people admired embodied specific Qualities, Behaviors and Characteristics (QBC).
Through Admired Man Leadership Institute, Dr. Hickey conducts a number of lectures and workshops regarding his research into what it takes to be an admired man. Through this book, Dr. Hickey hopes to inspire men everywhere with the findings of his research and promoting the skills and strategies that can be used to promote leadership skills and admirable qualities that readers can use to become admired men.
What People Are Saying….
“A Unique and Powerful Look at the Importance of Male Relationships in Contemporary American Society: Amid the range of father/son literature currently available, the author casts a uniquely universal, deep, positive, and personal lens on the status of this important relationship in American society today. This is a courageous exploration of the many intersections of gender, emotional well-being, and citizenship in the father/son or elder/youth relationship, in which the author himself unveils his own vulnerability as a source of strength and inspiration for others, and chronicles his own path as a mentor and a leader of young men. Finally, more than a fascinating read as a memoir and a social study, the book offers practical advice for organizations, parents, leaders, and educators, with tools for implementing some of the author’s proven techniques in varied environments.”- Shannon Kenny
