Today, I’m chatting with Jayson Gaddis. Jayson is an author, speaker, coach, and relationship expert with a knack for understanding human behavior. Jayson is the creator of the Interpersonal Intelligence® and Present Centered Relationship Coaching® and the Founder of The Relationship School, and has trained over 200 coaches in 11 countries.

In our conversation, we dig into the wounds that are created from conflict in our relationships and how to repair them. We share some facepalm moments with our family, the times when we lost it with our partners or kids and ended up making things worse. Jayson shares thoughtful insights on why that might happen, pointing to those unresolved issues from the past that sneak up on us.

You’ll also walk away with some practical advice and strategies on how we can change those patterns, connect more deeply with loved ones, and do it all without sacrificing our self-respect.

A Wide-Ranging Conversation Through…

  • Trauma, triggers and the silent treatment

Want to hang out with other FRDs in Austin? Watch this 3-min video from our last Front Row Dads Live event. Tickets avaiable now for December’s event. 

Not able to travel?  We got you. Join our next online event, built just for kickass dads who know there’s more to learn. 

FRD is solving a huge problem for dads. Our culture has turned “Dad” into a joke. Go ahead, google Dad and you’ll find Dad Bod, Dad Jokes, Dad Weed, etc. Culturally, it’s a Homer Simpson mentality, and it’s BS.   

Our community is built for solid men. Men with range. Those who are badass, and know there’s still more to learn, together.  

Most guys find it hard to find “their crew.” Finding other committed men, who are successful in life, and want to put family first – these guys are rare. Is this you? 

In FRD, hundreds of men from all over the world show up for each other, to share resources and raise the bar of fatherhood (our core values.)

If you’re reading this, you want to grow.  Podcasts are great, but guys… when you’re ready to stop just listening to content, and want to JOIN the conversations – the FRD brotherhood is ready for you.
