I’m so glad you found this site.
If you’re like me, I know you have a burning desire to be a great dad. You also want to be great at your job. And you want to be the best husband at the same time as creating a great life for your family.
The problem is that most dads struggle to manage all these demands. Connected Dads' leadership coaching system helps you live intentionally, lead with purpose and keeps you accountable. The results: You show up at your best for the people who matter most.
Chances are you have great intentions, but struggle to manage it all too. Whether it’s balancing your time and energy, connecting with your wife and kids more, or juggling the many stresses of your job and career – you just can’t shake the feeling that you’re not doing enough.
I can especially relate if you've always felt a void when it came to the relationship with your own dad and desperately want to change that for your kids.
Maybe others have said, “That’s just like your dad,” but they didn’t mean it as a compliment. And while that hurt, it also caused you to question yourself:
Will I make the same mistakes he did?
Will his issues become my issues?
Do I have what it takes to break the cycle, and create the family, life and relationships I want?
Deep down, you want to break the cycle so bad…but you aren't sure how to get there.
I know what that's like, because I've been where you are.
Dads like you and I have a passion to be great dads and lead our families well. But we’ve stumbled along the way. Whether it’s repeating the mistakes our dads made; struggling to balance the demands of family, work, and our health; or simply losing the battle for our peace of mind – we often feel like its not enough. Like we are not enough.
Battling through the challenges, I looked for answers everywhere. I planned better. I committed to change old habits. I made promises to my wife and kids, but with every mistake and broken promise – I felt worse. Eventually, it became too much.
As time went by, things in my relationship got worse. Everything I tried seemed to blow up in my face. Instead of one-step forward, two steps back – I fell down 'the mountain'. I hit bottom. You know what bottom looks like? It’s when you almost lose your family.
That's when I finally realized my mistake.
From this place of clarity came the realization I couldn't do it alone. I needed the right people around me to make it happen. So I rebuilt my approach based on proven principles, connected regularly with dads ahead of me but on the same journey, and committed to being held accountable.
Immediately I saw my family life begin to change.
I became more aware and intentional in daily choices. I grew as a leader. My health and energy levels increased. My most important relationships improved, and the vision I had for my family and life started to become reality.
I learned the power of clarifying my purpose as a father, relying on faith for peace in any circumstance, and that fitness provided the energy and health I needed to thrive. Most importantly, the dads on a similar journey held me accountable. As the proverb states, “Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.”
But the best part? I see the difference in how I show up for the people that matter. I relate better with my kids. They respect and listen to, honour, and have so much fun with me now. I connect more often, and in deeper ways with my spouse. I am changing the negative patterns of my past and building a strong, faithful, and resilient family. I'm becoming the dad I dreamed of having.
Is it time for you to make a change?
At Connected Dads we bring dads together in community so they can thrive in their roles at home, and in the rest of their lives. We all know the challenges being a dad presents in addition to the great reward it provides.
I'm here to strengthen and guide you on the journey (so you don't make the same mistakes I did). Based on the proven methodology of John C. Maxwell (NY Time Best Selling Author, rated #1 leadership expert in the world by Inc. Magazine) the program format immediately gives you the tools needed to lead yourself and your family.
Through coaching, building communities of dads in Accelerator groups, or our podcast and online course (both coming soon), I'm helping dads overcome their past mistakes, break the negative cycle that's keeping them stuck and transform their relationships. Inside you’ll find a community that encourages, supports, and challenges you to become the dad you dreamed of having.
Every day, dads are trading pain for purpose. Will you join us?
Hi, I'm Drew Soleyn
As a certified Leadership Coach, Trainer, and Speaker I help struggling dads break the negative cycle of their past, overcome mistakes, and transform their family life.
But what I really want you to know is that I struggled as a dad, and often felt like I was failing. While I searched for answers, I realized many dads felt the same pain but had nowhere to turn for advice, encouragement or support. From this experience Connected Dads was born.
The transformational growth I experienced from being mentored by Dr. John C. Maxwell inspired our training. My personal story inspired who we serve.
Ultimately, that combination means that Connected Dads has a proven system to help men transform their family life and become the dads they dreamed of having.
