Meet Brad Leslie: The Man Who Inspired the Creation of YMUW This conversation is with Brad Leslie, the mentor who initiated Dr. Mark Schillinger into the world of “rite of passage” initiations for young men. Dr. Mark, the founder of the “Young Men’s Ultimate Weekend”, discusses with Brad how these transformational events help teen young men overcome their fear and anxiety about becoming independent. Based on his thirty years of experience leading adult men, Brad offers his perspective about what good male leadership looks like, and how these mentoring skills can help parents be more effective in leading their families to experience more harmony and happiness.
