[episode 34] Sharing Your Health Beliefs with Patients

Jun 24, 2021

“I’m afraid that people will see me as weird, crazy, or a 'quack' if I say what I really think.” How many of us can relate to that sentiment?

As health professionals in a world where the mainstream population doesn’t align with our views, it sometimes feels easier to hide than to speak our truth. For fear of misunderstanding. For fear of rejection. For fear of discontinuation of care. 

Or maybe you’re loud and proud, sharing your truth to anyone who walks through your doors.

Either way you lean, there is a very delicate balance to be considered when sharing our views and thoughts. Effectively sparking their curiosity, but not overwhelming them nor coming from an angle of judgment.

I’ve definitely made many mistakes in this arena, but I believe I’ve fallen forward enough to have finally landed on a refined approach that has opened many patient minds, while protecting my own beliefs and integrity in the process.

[episode 33] 5 Proven Strategies to Rise Above Your Fears

Jun 17, 2021

On this week’s episode of Illuminate Your Practice, I share 5 of my go-to strategies to rise above our primary fears. 

These are just a taste of the confessions that women so vulnerably shared in the comments inside our free community group on Facebook.

“I'm afraid people will perceive me as a failure if I don’t strive for high volume PV.”

“I’m afraid people will perceive me as greedy if I ask for payment at time of service.”

“I'm afraid people will perceive me as a bad mom if I am too ambitious.”

Even though I live for overcoming limiting beliefs and mindsets that no longer serve us, I’m not going to lie and say that these perception fears can be overcome. 

That doesn’t mean they have to hold us back indefinitely! There are tools you can use to shorten that refractory period when there’s a fear flare-up.

It’s time to bring them to light so you can shine bright!

[episode 31] MINDSET MOMENT: Facing Your Primary Fear

Jun 03, 2021

I didn't even shower before I recorded this episode... if that's any indication of how anxious I was to get these words recorded before they escaped my brain.

Thanks to a quiet walk in the north woods of Wisconsin, (my favorite form of seeking catharsis) I was really able to reflect on how we usually default to one primary fear in our lives. 

And when I say "fear" I don't mean heights or spiders. I'm talking about those deep, decision-altering fears that really keep a grip on how we run our day-to-day lives. I've finally pinpointed mine and I'm working on dismantling the web it's built within me. 

This quick episode will help you identify yours so you can confront it head it on and begin surrendering to the flow.


Need help in going a little deeper? I’ve got just the thing for you:

[episode 28] Don't Push It Off

May 13, 2021

 As chiropractors, we have a tendency to prioritize our patient hours above all else. So much so, that we will decline events, training opportunities, or meaningful time of inflection if there is a schedule conflict. 

But how are we hindering our potential by missing these opportunities?

How is it possible to get ahead when we are convinced we don’t have the time to step away to set our goals and intentions?

Get ready to challenge this mentality in this week’s mindset moment episode.

[episode 27] The Boss/Friend Balance

May 06, 2021

When it comes to your employee(s), do you find yourself landing in the "friend" zone more often than "boss" zone? Or vice versa?

Let me explain...

Do you have a great goal setting and accountability system within your practice, but feel like you don't really know your team members on a personal level?

Or are you super in tune with what is going on in your team members lives and love the connections you've created, but have a hard time starting those difficult conversations when expectations aren't being met?

I'm here to say that there REALLY is a happy middle with this one! (And anyone who tells you otherwise is probably operating with a masculine leadership method.)

In this episode I outline some action steps you can take to stay centered as both a strong leader and welcoming friend to your team members.

[episode 25] MINDSET MOMENT: Is "Doing Your Best" Actually Harmful?

Apr 22, 2021

“Just do your best!”... right?

What could be wrong with that gentle little encouragement?

My therapist pressed me, “Krysti, what would happen if you DIDN’T do your best? Or if your team and family weren’t doing their best? Would their value change in your eyes?”

Um. Well.

Now that my eyes are open to it, I can’t seem to look away.

Are we not worthy if we’re not always giving our “best”?  How can we—humans—be expected to always be ON and perform as if that’s commonplace? What kind of message are we sending to our children and teams if we only want them in a conditional fashion?

Follow along in this Mindset Moment episode as I attempt to evolve this narrative.
