Master Your Internal Board Meeting (with Dr. Shannan Crawford)
Play • 37 min

Why is the success of an organization dependent on the health – not just physical health, but also mental and spiritual health - of the leader? When the microculture of a team is set by leadership, how can business owners refocus the parts of their own brains to help cultivate their employees’ most forward-thinking and creative efforts?   

Listen as our guest shares why some companies become plateaued due to leaders’ negative non-verbals having a trickle-down effect on their teams, how stressors can prevent leaders from being fully present at work or at home, how the “imposter syndrome” sabotages their confidence and balance, and how having a “Board Meeting with themselves” can help business owners achieve the self-cohesion necessary to be effective and exceptional leaders.  


As CEO of Dr. Crawford & Associates in Keller, Texas, Shannan continues a family tradition of successful business owners and uses her skills and knowledge to help not only her patients in their personal lives through individual, couples, and family counseling, she also empowers entrepreneurs with her unique strategies to enhance the effectiveness of their leadership. She innovated the Restoring-Self-Cohesion model, which assists leaders in navigating common obstacles including self-sabotage, procrastination, self-limiting behaviors, and lack of work-life balance found in themselves and in those they lead. Shannan is also a national and international speaker, is an adjunct professor at The King’s University in Texas, hosts her own popular podcast, “Unlock U with Dr. Shannan Crawford,” and is an author working on a fictional trilogy. She has served on the boards of philanthropic organizations such as 4Word and Kingdom Business Leaders, as well as lead groups that foster faith, community, and service. Shannan earned her Masters and Doctorate degrees in Clinical Psychology from Regent University in Virginia Beach, VA. A California native, Shannan now lives in Keller, Texas.
