This is why men are attracted to things like training, coaching and professional development – these programs are developed to appeal to a man’s empirical nature. And the popularity of these services shows us that guys have no problem working on themselves and evolving, as long as it’s goal oriented. So what’s stopping men from thinking the same way about counselling?
Guys like to know that they’re working towards goals but given the subjective nature of counselling it’s hard to measure results. Plus, traditional counselling doesn’t incorporate progress measurement or reporting, instead they expect the efficacy to speak for itself. To most guys, counselling appears open-ended and waffly, without precise inputs or outputs and with no goal orientation. So how can someone know if they’re moving in the right direction if they’re not mapping their efforts? It’s no surprise to us that men are killing themselves at four times the rate of women, taking 11 years to diagnose a mental issue, or relying on stimulants and anger to get them through daily life.
Without a structure to direct and organize effort, it’s unlikely that any actions will ‘somehow’ self organize into anything meaningful. Plus, we’ll never know when we’ve arrived at a solution because we’ll never know what problem we’re working on. We’re tackling this problem head-on with the creation of a male-oriented framework.
The Manifest Method works exceptionally well for men by providing them with a clear chronology, accountability and metrics tracking. We’ve blended the best aspects of coaching, personal development, and professional training to create a high performing program that provides measurable and successful outcomes.
