Large Group Leader's Guide

A step-by-step how-to manual for organizing, launching, and leading a successful BetterMan experience. It describes how a core leadership team is put together, key job descriptions, Table Leader recruitment and training, important timelines, and much more. This logistics planner is essential for conducting a well-run Large Group BetterMan experience that wins big with your men.

Table Leader’s Guide

Table Leaders are at the heart of BetterMan. That’s because BetterMan is much more than weekly instruction. At the core, it is about personal, face-to-face, honest interaction between men. Table Leaders recruit, coach, and mentor the young men who sit at their table throughout the BetterMan journey. This Leader’s Guide gives Table Leaders the clarity and confidence they need to lead.

BetterMan Workbooks

These 75-page, high-quality workbooks were created to help guide you and your men over the 11-week BetterMan journey.

Instructional Video

Early in the 11-week BetterMan journey, there is one, special “outside” storytelling meeting that is extremely important to the overall BetterMan experience. This meeting will be scheduled and organized by the BetterMan Table Leaders and best takes place in the relaxed setting of someone’s home. This meeting is called the “My Life Story” gathering and occurs in the days after Session 2 but before Session 3. Instruction for conducting this meeting and for how men share their life stories with one another is found in the video below.
Please note, it is extremely important that you as a leader watch this helpful training for leading this outside storytelling meeting at least 48 hours before Session 2 so that you are prepared to invite and discuss this outside meeting with your table group members.

Profiles & Video Sessions

If you have decided to use video teaching rather than live teaching then here are our four featured speakers you can select from to teach your BetterMan 11-week experience. Each man instructs from the same curriculum and workbook. Our recommendation is that you sample one or two video sessions from each speaker before deciding which one you will use to teach your men.
