Last week I spoke about the need for the sisterhood to unite, this week, let’s talk about manbassadors. What’s a manbassador? They are men with a particularly powerful attitude and a whole lot of integrity.
In his discussion of 25 Characteristics of an Alpha Male, Chad Howse really nailed it:
“The alpha male doesn’t try to be an alpha male. That’s where so many fail. He is interested in life, in living. He’s fascinated by the world around him, in becoming the best man he can possibly become. He genuinely cares about people.”
That, to me, is a #Manbassador. A manbassador isn’t frightened of women or other men, or even LGBTIQ people, because he doesn’t need to manipulate or put people down to feel powerful. These men are role models in business and in life. They are examples to other men of what it means to be a great man.
A manbassador is comfortable in his own skin and comfortable in the role he takes on in his life — even if it is not a traditional male role. He steps in for boys and younger men lacking a role model of what it means to be a man today. He shows them how to respect themselves, others, and the world.
Manbassadors are a beautiful gift in any community, and with the on-going number of marriage breakdowns, resulting in so many children being raised without a father figure, he is an incredibly important and valuable member of society.
If you are a manbassador, speak up, show up, raise your voice, set the example, step in when needed to help raise the next generation of men, and let’s overcome the growing divide we are creating in the world today.
Honour the manbassadors in your life. Help them understand the role they could play in having a bigger impact in the world. Let’s put the voice of manbassadors on a bigger platform. Let’s all work together and take the conversation in a positive #WeToo direction. The world needs to move forward, united, with grace, love, and integrity at the centre.
So fellas, are you happy to be a manbassador? Happy to step up and change the current, negative, rhetoric? Think of the change we could create in the world if great men understood and acted on this idea?
