The Art of Masculinity

Aug 11, 2022

On this episode, we talked about:

How Chris started as a policeman
Starting to lose who I was
Not knowing who I really am
Disconnecting from work
Taking time for myself
Putting myself first to show up fully
Embracing your masculinity
Being brutally honest
Being vulnerable and having the ability to open up
Knowing what I want to do
Identifying who you really are

"When I'm off duty, I don't want to be around people, I don't want to look at anyone, because they are all threats"


"Talk: tell everyone what's going on and don't hold back, be brutally honest"


"When you're false and you're not honest then people don't see you"


About Chris:

Chris is an American-Kiwi, who arrived in NZ in 2004. He joined the NZ Police in 2011 and after a seven-year career, during which time he protected The Rt Hon Sir John Key (New Zealand's Prime Minister), he
experienced severe burnout that caused him to leave the job he once loved.
After a journey of self-care, recovery, and personal development, he's now hyper passionate about helping officers take charge of their mental health and significantly reduce the chance of burnout.
He lives to ensure others learn to see themselves so they don't go through the pain he once experienced.
