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 59: Start to Retreat
Periods of seclusion, intentional rest, and focused attention on the “internal world” are well known to boost our physical, social and emotional well-being. Today, Chris and Krystal discuss why many successful individuals, especially men, still struggle to “retreat.” Although we want more space and time to reflect, concentrate our own energy and focus on ourselves, actually taking it does not come naturally. We offer guidance for making retreats more accessible at the psychological and relational
Episode 58: Start to Think for Yourself
Many times, we go with the group when it is goes against our truth, or it impedes the group's well-being. By the time we are adults, we have had many experiences of conforming to social convention and reverting to cultural traditions. We don't have relationships that challenge us, or encourage us to think for ourselves. Kristy and I converse about the discipline of "thinking for yourself." Be aware...consistent use WILL transform every relationship you are in. Mostly, the one you have with yourself.
Episode 57: Stop Faking It
Sometimes we deceive others, and sometimes we decision ourselves. Often we become so used to "this is how it is" or to how things look that we forget who we are, what we stand for, and what our bodies are telling us. This discipline isn't easy to adopt. You will upset others. And, following your truth TAKES ENERGY. Yet, if you only committed to one discipline this entire year, this might be the one that produces the most benefit for your SOUL.
Can I Slow Down & Grow Up?
Many of us have resisted slowness and being at home for a long time. Without question, this is the time where we are being forced to slow down. Will we fight against it? Numb ourselves out? Or mindfully, lovingly, use it to remember to tend to our" homes." This short podcast offers some guidance on what obstacles you may expect, and some encouragement to persist in the name of our collective growth.
Episode 56: Start to Stand Up for Something
Life gives us a lot of opportunity to grow & learn. This season of uncertainty and confusion will trigger us to react. It also will invite us to slow down. To reflect and re-identify with what we stand for. From this place, responsible action is more efficient. We are ready and capable to rise together---create the places, programs, politics, people and ways of being that are aligned with our own heartful, intentional visions. What do you stand for? How can you consciously stand for it?
Reflection and rewards
Each time I listen to Dr. White’s podcasts, it promotes and provides moments of reflection. She gets me to dig deep, listen and make positive change. Every time a reward is revealed. I am thankful.
I love this podcast. The variety, perspective, and insight teach me something every time I listen!
Asking the right questions
The first time I met Krystal was on a phone call intended to discuss business. She was actually thousands of miles away in Europe. Regardless of the distance, within the first two minutes of the conversation, there was a connection. Business was never even discussed. You can’t explain it or even define it. I felt instant trust and understanding. As our conversation continued, her questions were deep and unique. The one that made me pause, “What lie are you living?” The purpose of the question, is to find your truth. Let the journey begin.
