PODCAST

EXECUTIVE SHAMAN

“Dark moments often spark bright ideas. It’s time for us to be willing to look beyond the superficial. It’s time to explore further. It’s time to deeply listen.

Welcome to The Executive Shaman Podcast

Welcome to The Executive Shaman Podcast. Here, Executive Shaman Dr. Krystal White and other Thought Leaders chat for 30-minute about all things related to transformational leadership.

Listen in to be entertained, educated and engaged by the real-life (often imperfect) application of leadership models, evidence-based research, and innovative ideas.

This is a time in human history that demands more of us. We need to bring more of our true selves into every aspect of our lives. In particular, our professions need our souls present.

We’re on a journey, and invite you along.

Episode 35: Enhancing Personal Courage

What was the last thing that you did that required personal courage in a professional setting? Research shows that more than HALF of managers feel uncomfortable in their role. It’s not the discomfort that creates leadership failures, it’s the lack of personal courage employed either consequetively or in a key moment. Eric and Krystal’s conversation today provides insight and guidance on how to lead others to demonstrate personal courage.

Episode 34: Please, Just Say No

In a time of “yes” saying “no” often is a courageous step in the direction of productivity, energy management, and conscious growth. Today Julie and Krystal talk about how to say no in a way that inspires team optimization and how to handle a no in a way that manages your own ego.

 

Episode 33: How an A Works

The Letter Code is a book that guides people to discover their real needs in love. Many professionals love their work, and therefore their code is expressed in many of their automatic behaviors, common conflicts and ways of communicating. Today we discuss how As nautrally seek their teams to be caring, mutually giving and understanding of one anothers needs. Hear More episodes: Hs (#26) Ws (#18) and Ys (#2) or read The Letter Code.

Episode 32: The Unconscious Roles We Play

It is a common experience for others to type-cast you. Sometimes that works to our advantage, but in seasons where you need to transition or grow, it often hinders us.  We also unconsciously put ourselves in a position to play certain “roles” in relationships. Understanding the common ways you are triggered to play these roles will help break patterns of repetitive conflict, stagnation, and a lack of innovation.

Episode 31: Strategic Management Development

Organizations that function well set professional development goals for their managers. This is a strategic way to achieve greater productivity and quantifiable results. Organizations that THRIVE have managers that help their employees ACHIEVE professional development goals for themselves. Adam and I review the framework he uses to inspire growth in those he leads. Those that work for and around him quickly move from being a “manager” to being a “leader” because he helps them get the real-life SKILLs to be ready for that role. 

Episode 30: Noise

Good Managers give great answers. Amazing leaders give good questions. This podcast uses great questions to provoke enhanced performance and effective improvement. What noise are YOU ignoring in your life? What is so loud you can’t deny? What needs more volume or more filtering? Tune into this episode and use the process in your own self reflection or to develop your team. 

Episode 29: Polarity

Two ends of a spectrum. Ying and Yang. These forces are known as POLARITY, and we all express them.

We all want balance. The easiest way to achieve it is to quickly assess your own polarity. Then you can implement supportive realtionships, daily routines and frequent habits to motivate you to adopt a more balance way. Intuitive coach Amiel and I light-heartedly discuss three main areas where polarity shows up in people and offer guidance in the pursuit of balance.

Episode 28: Conscious Use of Self

You can develop someone by giving them new skills, habits and disciplines. Or you develop somone by giving them new insights and responsibilities. I tend to work first by giving people more awareness into who they are, increase their capacity to lead (aka take responsibility) and THEN give them how-to-skills. This top down approach, called Conscious Use of Self, is a thought-leadership method to organizational success. Today Dr. Michael Broom and I discuss real world applicability and why we adopt it’s tenants in our own lives.

Episode 27: Three Reactions to Chaos

All of us experience moments of uncertainty, stress, and chaos. Most of us have a season that are characteristically “chaotic.” If you’re a leader where you are faced with “dramas on the daily” developing skills to RESPOND in the moment that leads to growth rather than survival. Today we discuss the 3 reactions to chaos, and provide 3 key ways to start learning responsive habits.
