In Search of the New Compassionate Male
Join me on this journey!

Join Our Global Conversation 

I am in Search of the New Compassionate Male. I am convinced that amidst all the turmoil in the world a New Compassionate Male is emerging as the New Archetype. I am on a journey to every corner of the planet to give voice to compassionate thought leaders.

 I know there is a spark of compassion emerging within every man and within every woman. Regardless of gender, sexual orientation, nationality or religious tradition I am inviting all to join my conversation.

We never know where the gold will be when we tape our conversations. Sometimes it surfaces during the informal conversation after the taping. Here’s a clip that I decided not to toss. The complete conversation filed with more nuggets of gold will be out in a few days.

About Don Frick: On the day when he first read Greenleaf’s essay The Servant as Leader in 1986, Don Frick decided to dedicate the rest of his career to understanding and teaching Greenleaf’s ideas about servant leadership. Since then, he has written books and essays about servant leadership—including Greenleaf’s biography—made presentations, conducted workshops, taught graduate seminars, and consulted with corporations on the principles of servant leadership. He is currently working on another book that offers details about how various organizations have implemented (cont’d)


servant leadership. Before encountering Greenleaf’s work, Don engaged in multiple careers, including: managing departments at a university and museum of art; university teaching; television, radio, and film writing, production, and performance; trainer; specialist in advertising and marketing for Fortune 500 companies, plus an entrepreneur. His formal education includes a B.S. in Education, Master of Divinity, and PhD in Leadership and Organizational Studies.
Don is based in Indianapolis and can be contacted at:

Recent Testimonial:

Clays big heart and warm humor were present right from the beginning, which made it easy for me to trust him. Like the eagle he is a master of expansion (seeing the bigger picture) as well as of precision (seeing those “details“, which play a key role in the process). He listens deeply and captures the content as well as the information between the lines. In the right moments he shows his persistence – a persistence, which is rooted in compassion. And last but not least: His ability to mind map in real time is legendary – and the completed mind maps are a great support in the time after the consultation! Thank you for your help, compassionate man named Clay. – Andreas Pellegrini – Switzerland

 In Search of the New Compassionate Male is now a Centers for Partnership Studies – Partner.

The mission of the Center for Partnership Studies is to catalyze movement towards partnership systems on all levels of society through research, education, grassroots empowerment, and policy initiatives. CPS’s programs focus on promoting human rights and nonviolence, gender and racial equity, childhood development, and new metrics that demonstrate the financial contribution of the work of caregiving.

The Center for Partnership Studies was founded in 1987 in response to the demand of readers of Riane Eisler’s The Chalice and The Blade: Our History, Our Future, hailed by Princeton anthropologist Ashley Montagu as “the most important book since Darwin’s Origin of Species.” A U.S. bestseller, The Chalice and The Blade is now in 26 foreign editions (including Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Hebrew, Arabic, Urdu, and most European languages), and used in universities worldwide.
