Admired Man Why?: The Making of an Admired Man

Admired Man Why?: The Making of an Admired Man



Name a man that you admire in your life. Maybe it’s a hard-working father, a loving husband, or a family friend. But admired men aren’t simply born that way. They’re crafted from a set of traits and values that motivate others to look up to them—behaviors and characteristics that facilitate leadership skills and draw admiration from their peers and loved ones.

Inspired by the admirable men he has encountered in his own life, Dr. Chris L. Hickey Sr. set out to discover the specific qualities that cause a man to be respected, through thousands of questionnaires, personal surveys, and interviews. And the results were overwhelming, showing clear trends in the characteristics of those men—a collection of behaviors that create near-universal admiration among family, friends, students, and colleagues.

The results of this research can be found in Admired Man—Why?, a must-read for boys, men, fathers, and anyone who has ever wondered what it takes to truly be an admired man. Learn the QBCs (quality, behavior, and characteristics) of being the best man you can be, and get started on L(ife)eadership Skills that will last a lifetime, with this helpful and encouraging guide.
