The Art of Insubordination: How to Dissent and Defy Effectively With Todd Kashdan
When I first received the book The Art of Insubordination: How to Dissent and Defy Effectively by my guest on today's show, Todd Kashdan, I thought it was going to be some fringe rebel handbook or something like TheAlchemist's Cookbook, or a title that was meant to incite riots and violence.
I was dead wrong.
Instead, this book is a research-based toolbox for anyone who wants to create a world with more justice, creativity, and courage.
For ideas to evolve and for societies to progress, we desperately need rebels to challenge conventional wisdom and improve on it. Unfortunately, most of us fear nonconformists, perceiving them as disloyal, reckless, destructive, or just plain weird. Because most would-be rebels lack the strength and skills to overcome hostile audiences, principled insubordination remains an underleveraged asset in the workplace and public square.
Based on cutting-edge research, The Art of Insubordination is the essential guidebook for anyone seeking to be heard, make a change, and rebel against an unhealthy, stagnant status quo. The book also gives the rest of us the evidence-based strategies we need to become better allies of our leaders in change, ensuring that the best ideas, products, and solutions survive and win the day. Inside this book lie answers to several questions, including:
• What are the most effective ways to express unpopular, important ideas?
• How can we help principled rebels be heard and influential?
• How can we better manage the discomfort when trying to rebel or interacting with a rebel?
Filled with fresh and engaging stories about dissenters in the trenches as well as science that will make you see the world in a different way, The Art of Insubordination is for anyone who wants to see more justice, creativity, inclusion, cultural dynamism, and innovation in the world.
As a Professor of Psychology and a leading educator to the public, Todd Kashdan translates state-of-the-art science for practical application to improve our everyday lives. He is well-known for his energetic and disarming communication style. Todd received the 2010 Distinguished Faculty Member of the Year Award at George Mason University for his teaching and mentoring. He gave a TEDx talk on psychological flexibility and writes the “Curious?” blog for Psychology Today, which is enjoyed by more than four million readers.
After receiving a Ph.D. in clinical psychology (2004), Todd founded the Well-Being Lab at George Mason University which has produced over 210 peer-reviewed journal articles on well-being and resilience, psychological flexibility, meaning and purpose in life, curiosity, and managing social anxiety.

Sacred Hunting, Convict Conditioning, Rites Of Passage, Plant Medicines, Rekindling Ancient Spiritual Practices & More With Mansal Denton.
My guest on this podcast, Mansal Denton, also known as "Little Beaver", is the founder of Sacred Hunting, host of the Mansal Denton Podcast, and the subject of an upcoming documentary BELOW THE DROP, which explores our relationship to life and death through hunting.
Feeling insecure in early life, he chased a woman to Europe, which led him to prison. Struggling with shame and confusion of what it meant to be a man, he found his calling with the sacred art of hunting. He now desires to share this practice with more men.
His indigenous name comes from a Crow Sun Dance chief. His spiritual lineage is derived from six years of mentorship from a Muskogee/Creek medicine man named Will "Star Heart".
What is Sacred Hunting? A practice that leads us back to our origins. A reminder that, for our ancestors, obtaining the food that sustains life was a spiritual act involving bloodshed. A reconnection to nature and the earth that gave us birth. An opportunity for connection and tribal brotherhood. A transformative encounter with death.
Mansal Denton, like the men he leads on wilderness quests, was raised in a culture alienated from its sources of nourishment and sustenance. A youthful indiscretion that led to a prison cell fundamentally altered his life’s trajectory. Here, he shows the power and vitality that the hunt can bring into men’s lives in this perilous time, when rites of passage are notably absent. Sacred Hunting brings the richness of his hunting experience, and that of the men whose journeys he facilitates, into inspirational focus.
During our discussion, you'll discover:
-How a stint in the clink became a rite of passage for Mansal...
-Ben's preferred style of hunting and why...
-When the hunt took on its sacred form for Mansal...
-An insider's look at the sacred hunting experience...
-Why it's especially empowering that sacred hunts occur with men only...
-How plant medicines can enhance the hunt...
-What occurs after the animal is killed...
-And much more...

This culminated for Ben with a scholarship offer to Boston University for basketball, but due to NCAA eligibility rules, Ben turned it down and began training athletes.
Many people have been recommending Ben’s methods as completely transformative in their knee pain, and recently I've begun experimenting with his programs, so though I would have Ben on the show to discuss his very unique approach to healing the knees.

How To Build Your Legacy, Bond Your Family With Traditions, Rituals & Routines, Rites Of Passage & Much More With Rich Christiansen of Legado Family Founder.
When it comes to passing on important family values and beliefs to future generations, I firmly believe that family traditions are the powerful legacy-building tool in a parent’s toolbox. Traditions, habits, rituals and routines are the glue that stick, the threads that bind and the clasps that hold a family together through the best and worst of times.
As our family discussed in the recent podcast “The Official Greenfield Family Q&A Podcast: Parenting, Cooking, Traditions, Legacy-Building, Family Game Nights & More!,” we recently worked with the wonderful Rich Christiansen of Legado Family Founder, who specializes in helping families identify their core values, then create memorabilia, traditions, rituals, routines, comings and goings all based around those values.
As a result, our family not only now has a “Greenfield Family Playbook” which is a guide that we can pass on to future generations in which all our values and traditions are listed, but we also have a family mission statement, a family crest being designed to hang above our fireplace, a family logo we can print on hats, shirts, mugs, and stickers, and even individual spirit animals and colors for each member of our family.
If you're not already weaving traditions, rituals, routines and an emphasis on legacy into your own family, I encourage you to do so, with or without the help of a professional. It's been a transformative process that will impact the Greenfield family for generations. For more on the Greenfield family's comings and goings, you can also check out GoGreenfields.com here!
To explore this topic even more, I decided to interview Rich for my podcast.
Rich helps families upgrade their relationships through a program consisting of five different modules that include detailed lessons and structures crafted carefully to enhance lasting ties and strengthen bonds. His Legado product revolutionizes the way families reconnect through sharing proven models, real-world experiences, valuable insight, and giving your family engaging activities for all age groups. Build Family Legacies provides the ultimate roadmap to building the best family legacy your family could ever imagine and no other brand can do it better.
Rich and his wife Gaye are the parents of five sons and a daughter they sponsor from Nepal. Together, they also share eight beautiful grandchildren. As a family, they enjoy exploring the outdoors together and always have their eyes set on big adventures.
During our discussion, you'll discover: -How the Legato business has evolved to its current form... -"Dark investments" and how wealth can decimate a family... -How to begin identifying family values... -The basic model of the Legado platform... -Rites of passage and assisting children to "come of age" when they're ready... -How to foster an entrepreneurial and self-sufficient spirit in children... -An apology blended with a charter... -Key traditions Rich recommends... -And much more...

Heard about Ben at a Cryotherapy center
One of his books “Beyond Training” was on the bookshelf and the owner said, “he’s is a beast” so I read the book and have been following him ever since. Thanks Ben,

Disappointed in the hunting episode, not for the reasons you think
I love the podcast. However, I was very disappointed in the hunting episode where you spoke very demeaning of “rednecks who dump corn and sit in a tree and kill a deer with a huge weapon.” (I am paraphrasing a bit). Not everyone has the time or the means to participate in these hunting practices that you speak of. My family hunts every year for meat. Yes, we use corn and shoot the deer from a stand, with rifles. But we thank God and the deer, process it ourselves, and feel so thankful throughout the year when we eat it. As far as the pig hunting from helicopters. Please research how much of an exponential problem wild pigs are in Texas and Oklahoma. Hunting them one by one would make it absolutely impossible to control the population. Even with the helicopters, the numbers are insane and uncontrollable which is terrible for the pigs and many other types of animals. I understand that there are some people who hunt only for the trophy, and do just sit on their phones, drinking a beer, not thinking about the significance of what they are doing when they kill an animal. So yes, I understand what you are saying to an extent, but please see another side to this for us normal folks.
