John C. Maxwell's Leadership Teaching Taking Dads And Their Families to New Heights 

John C. Maxwell, the #1 New York Times bestselling author, coach, and speaker has sold more than 30 million books.  He is identified as the #1 leader in business by the American Management Association® and the world’s most influential leadership expert by Business Insider and Inc. magazine. 

Connected Dads applies the learning systems from John C. Maxwell to connect, inspire, and equip dads for their most important leadership role - family!  Coming together with other dads who have a passion for breaking old patterns will fast-track your learning, application and results.

Simply put, this small group leadership program is an accountability accelerator. You'll never leave the same after experiencing the community, inspiration and encouragement shared with dads on the journey like you. Get connected today to become the dad you dreamed of having.


To be able to share and relate with other men who are striving to be their best but challenged to keep all the balls in the air was relieving. And the accountability that is naturally worked into each session is hugely important. Connected Dads has changed my life (and continues to do so) in many tangible ways - just ask my beautiful wife and two daughters.

The Accelerator Process

No matter what age or stage of dad, our proven small group facilitation process will enhance your ability to live intentionally, lead with purpose and create the family life you dream of having. Together with other like minded dads, you will assimilate John C. Maxwell's acclaimed teaching, share your struggles and challenges, while being supported to apply the principles and practices into your life as a dad. 

Stage 1


The starting point for growth is getting clear about the current state.  You also begin to identify what matters most to you as a dad. Through awareness you create clarity on your "5P's":

  • Purpose - role as a dad/husband

  • People - who is most important

  • Personality - strengths, weakness, values

  • Passion - what lights you up

  • Priorities - where do you commit time

Stage 2


Like a car in need of realignment, you may be drifting off course when your 5P's are out of order.  You're also likely causing undue wear and tear while not making progress to your intended goals. Through alignment we begin to put the right pieces in the right place for your family life.  Realignment brings the goals you have as a dad into focus and provides the road map to get there. Once properly aligned you're ready for activation.

Stage 3


Taking control of your thoughts requires intentionally feeding your mind the right inputs. Activation occurs when you consciously think about the right things, and start to reprogram your subconscious reactions. This is where you begin to break the patterns of old behaviour and create new ones. The new patterns put you on the right track to your destination. And you'll know you're making progress as you see yourself changing. The real momentum comes when others begin to see your changes.

Stage 4


This is the foundation of your success. The specific and regular evaluation built into the DNA of Connected Dads will drive your transformation. Here is why:

The American Society of Training and Development (ASTD) found that you have a 65% chance of completing a goal if you commit to someone. When you establish a specific accountability practice with this person, you increase your chance of success by up to 95%.

No matter what stage you're at, we've been where you are.

We've faced the struggles of feeling like we’re failing every day.  Like we’re losing the hearts of our children, or can’t get them to open up. 


We even struggled to connect with our wives and felt divided over everything – finances, housework, schedules, and yes, even sex.


But, we've learned the very simple approach to transforming our family life.  One that fulfills us every day, and helps us be our best for our families.


As a result, we relate better to our wife and kids, and they listen to, honour and respect us.  We’ve also become aware of how we show up, and the impact our mindset, mood, and attitude has on the entire family.  Ultimately we now make daily choices to fully embrace our fatherhood, faith, and fitness.


Yes, we still struggle.  Yes, we’re still learning.  Yes, we still make mistakes. But, the freedom and transformation comes from putting in the effort, supporting one another, and holding each other accountable. Will you join us?


Dads, you were made for this. It's your time to thrive!
