His combination of deep intuition, organizational experience, and behavioral science expertise allows him to design powerful and customized development solutions for clients such as Slack, Snapchat, Change.org, Coursera, Tile, Eero, Collective Health, Dropbox, and Radiology Partners. Matt is also a founding partner at Evolution Ventures, an early-stage venture fund that combines coaching with investment for seed- and other early-stage companies.
Our conversation explores the development of the various strengths and leadership capacities that lead to maturity as a man.
We talk about how women can better understand the process men are in as they mature and how it intersects with men coming into their own power. We also touch upon emotional intelligence, connection, and men’s work and men’s groups.
As a woman who coaches a lot of men at midlife, these concepts have dramatically changed how I work with men.
