COT: Everyone is familiar with Superman and his alter ego the mild mannered Clark Kent. Clark Kent is just an average guy punching the clock, not a bad guy, just nothing special. It is too easy for us as men to show up as superman in our work but at home and in our community to be Clark Kent. Not bad, but not engaged and not always present mentally and emotionally. I encouraged the PAX to be Superman at work and then go home, clock in and be superman at home. I gave the example of my older brother Caleb who was the best in his work as a Navy SEAL and when he came home or went out into his community he was equally present, engaged, and focused on making an impact on those around him.
Took the PAX out in a Ball of Man
