Raising Strong Girls—A Dad’s Guide with Dr. Tim Jordan


It takes a special skillset to be a good dad to a daughter. We don’t have many shows about raising girls. If you have daughters between ages of five and twenty-five, this show is for you.

Today we are grateful to have Dr. Tim Jordan on the show to give us simple, sound advice on raising strong girls. He is the expert on parenting girls, a counselor, and the author of SHE LEADS: A Practical Guide for Raising Girls Who Advocate, Influence, and Lead.

Dr. Tim Jordan is going to tell us how we as fathers can best help our daughters become empowered and confident. He highlights the unique challenges girls face that dads might not be aware of. He also explains how to teach girls to navigate pressure, speak up for themselves, and discover their true gifts.

Dr. Tim Jordan

Dr. Tim’s love for working with kids began with caring for his five younger sisters. As he pursued a career as a Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrician, he discovered he had a magical connection with girls that was built on trust and care.

Dr. Tim has enjoyed 30 years of experience interacting with circles of girls during his personal growth retreats, summer camps, and school programs where girls share their deepest trials and triumphs.

He helps girls from ages 5 – 25 and provides guidance for parents raising daughters.

SHE LEADS: A Practical Guide for Raising Girls Who Advocate, Influence, and Lead

Girls globally aspire to be a leader in their country, community, and career. Parents hear of the importance of empowering their daughters. Yet they receive very little instruction on how to parent girls to that end…until now. “She Leads” describes leadership qualities that are most in need today and the practical strategies parents can immediately use to help girls develop these traits.

Get ready to be trained to communicate and negotiate by the most qualified man in the country.

Chris Voss is the former Chief Negotiating Officer of the FBI, the CEO & Founder of the Black Swan Group, and the author of Never Split The Difference: Negotiating As If Your Life Depended On It.

Chris is back on the show to tell us some surprising things about communication based on decades of experience, modern psychology, and neuroscience. He explains why we want to get people to say “no” instead of “yes” and teaches us advanced techniques for developing tactical empathy. Chris also reveals the skill set we need for communication mastery as fathers, arming us with the tools we need to be effective leaders in our households and communities.

“When you negotiate properly, you allow the other side to have your way.”—Chris Voss

A 24-year veteran of the FBI, Chris retired as the lead international kidnapping negotiator. Drawing on his experience in high-stakes negotiations, his company specializes in solving business communication problems using hostage negotiation solutions.

Never Split the Difference: Negotiating As If Your Life Depended On It

A former international hostage negotiator for the FBI offers a new, field-tested approach to high-stakes negotiations—whether in the boardroom or at home.

After a stint policing the rough streets of Kansas City, Missouri, Chris Voss joined the FBI, where his career as a hostage negotiator brought him face-to-face with a range of criminals, including bank robbers and terrorists. Reaching the pinnacle of his profession, he became the FBI’s lead international kidnapping negotiator. Never Split the Difference takes you inside the world of high-stakes negotiations and into Voss’s head, revealing the skills that helped him and his colleagues succeed where it mattered most: saving lives. In this practical guide, he shares the nine effective principles—counterintuitive tactics and strategies—you too can use to become more persuasive in both your professional and personal life.

Life is a series of negotiations you should be prepared for: buying a car, negotiating a salary, buying a home, renegotiating rent, deliberating with your partner. Taking emotional intelligence and intuition to the next level, Never Split the Difference gives you the competitive edge in any discussion.
