Those are all wonderful strategies (good job!!)Well.. that's a long list
Men is a specific one, but other that it's just anything new or big and loud. Brroms are terrifying, shadows on the ceiling, moving lamps, skateboards, trampolines, trucks backing up, garbage trucks, rakes, big trash cans, I tried making a low (2 inch) jump out of boxes and a broom, and I did get him to go over it after about half hour of treats.
He reacts by running away if he can. If he can't run, he will cower against my legs, brace backwords if you pull his collar at all, and refuse to get near the offending object.
I try to get him over it by playing with Katie around the object, lots of treats, ignoring him and praising Katie, and doing basic commands to distract him
