Modern Survival for Dads

Modern Survival for Dads with Mike Glover

For many of us, it’s a challenge just to get through the day. We’re stuck on the hamster wheel, running as fast as we can to nowhere. Not only do we lack clarity around our paths in life, but we also lack situational awareness when it comes to the daily environment around us. The world is not always a safe place, and complacency is deadly.

Today we have Mike Glover on the show. He’s an ex-Special Forces soldier, the host of the Modern Mindset 365 Podcast, and the founder of Fieldcraft Survival, where he teaches everyday people how to be prepared for any catastrophic event, accident, or natural disaster.

Mike teaches us modern survival for dads, which includes being empathetic, resilient, and deliberate in our actions. He also talks about how to protect our families and teach our kids what to do when their lives are in danger.

“Small victories accumulate into success.”—Mike Glover

Mike Glover

Mike Glover spent most of his life in the Army serving as an infantryman and Special Forces soldier. He started his career as a Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier where he learned Honor and Respect. After September 11th he tried out for US Special Forces where he served the remainder of his career in multiple positions including: Sniper, JTAC, Recon NCO, Team Sgt, Sgm, Breacher. He developed his mindset and the practice that he teaches today during his combat rotations in austere environments all over the world.

After being promoted to Sergeant Major in Special Forces, he began contracting with the US Government operating overseas, protecting government officials in dangerous environments. After his service and contracting days, he started a successful business called Fieldcraft Survival dedicated to training civilians, Law Enforcement, and Military personnel for the worst case scenario.

Mindset is Mike’s passion. He believes that it’s a tangible tactic that can be taught and made more resilient with training and an open mind.

debrief to win accountable leadership

Debrief to Win with former Top Gun Instructor Robert “Cujo” Teschner

Who knows how to rapidly assess, respond, and adapt under extreme pressure better than a Top Gun fighter pilot? Today we are super-psyched to have Top Gun instructor Robert “Cujo” Teschner on the show! He’s releasing his book called Debrief to Win: How High-Performing Leaders Practice Accountable Leadership. He is also a husband, a father of five children, and a cancer survivor.

You don’t get to Cujo’s level without doing the work and prepping yourself to win at all costs. He reveals that even though his military career was taking off, he was failing in other dimensions of his life. One day he realized that if he applied his elite training to his health and family, he would dominate across the board.

Listen to his Debrief to Win system to set yourself up for a successful mission no matter what the dogfight of life throws at you.

Robert “Cujo” Teschner

Robert “Cujo” Teschner is a retired, multiple award-winning United States Air Force fighter pilot. He was the 125th F-15C Instructor at the Air Force Weapons School – the Air Force “TOP GUN” Program. He commanded the 7th Fighter Squadron “Screamin’ Demons,” one of America’s only front-line operational F-22 squadrons. He won multiple awards for flying excellence and was promoted to the rank of full-Colonel. He has multiple advanced degrees and also spent his entire career leading high-performance teams to success. This earned him the callsign “Cujo,” the warrior that flew combat missions over the skies of Iraq.

He’s proud to be a dad and believes his number one job is to raise his kids.

“I don’t lose. That’s my culture. We’re going to be facing adversity every day. It’s not a question of if it’s going to happen, it’s how you’re going to react to it.”—Robert “Cujo” Teschner
