Ted Talk: Justin Baldoni
In this TED Talk, Justin Baldoni talks about starting a dialogue with men about redefining masculinity to figure out ways to be not just good men, but good humans. In a warm, personal talk, he shares his effort to reconcile who he is with who the world tells him a man should be. And he has a challenge for men: "See if you can use the same qualities that you feel make you a man to go deeper," Baldoni says. "Your strength, your bravery, your toughness: Are you brave enough to be vulnerable? Are you strong enough to be sensitive? Are you confident enough to listen to the women in your life?"
Promote integrity, non-violence and respect on and off the court
Some of the most important goals for the Red Riots basketball team are off the court. The coach and players emphasize that as men they will not be defined by the strength of their physical attributes, but by the strength of their character, attitudes, beliefs and their actions.
“Our wins and losses may matter today, but the lives we lead as students, sons, brothers, friends and in the future as professionals partners and fathers – t ese lives will transform our communities for years to come.”
By promoting integrity, non-violence and respect you will take your team’s leadership and sportsmanship to the next level. You and your team can help build safer and stronger communities through athletics.
