Finding My Voice in the Land of Crazy Horse with Author Kevin Hancock

In this episode my guest Kevin Hancock, an award winning author and the CEO of one of the oldest family businesses in the U.S., reflects on his recovery from a thought to be ‘incurable’ neurological voice disorder, as well as his time on the remote Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. He now is an advocate of strengthening the voices of all individuals—within a company or a community —through listening, empowering, and shared leadership.
I think this quote from Kevin Hancock’s book Not For Sale: Finding Center in the Land of Crazy Horse pretty much captures the spirit of his message and his journey: “You can learn a lot by losing your voice.”

In this powerful episode Kevin shares:
  • How a rare speech disorder led him to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation 
  • How his time in South Dakota became an unintended spiritual quest
  • What he learned from spending time with members of the Oglala Sioux Tribe
  • The power of awareness and connectivity
  • His thoughts on cultural appropriation
  • The wisdom he witnessed
  • The importance of our relationship with the natural world
  • How he brought what he learned and experienced to his workplace 
  • The gift of losing his voice
  • How to make the seemingly impossible possible
  • The process of creating his photojournal book 48 Whispers
  • Rebuilding your world from within
  • His philosophy regarding leadership
  • How he works with other companies
  • How his speech disorder changed him
  • His thoughts on how to make the planet and humanity better
