For a few years now, it's really stuck with me that we expect directors and executives to walk into boardrooms and just be awesome. But we don't really tell them what awesome looks like, and we certainly don't give them any time to figure it out. Back in episode 70 I talked about the fact that thinking strategically takes practice. And it's true! Making matters worse, we don't really give boards any time to practice – every moment is like game time. More than that, they only get to “play the game” once a month at most – often way less than that. I get it. Boards are serious business, and we recruit people who are SUPPOSED to understand how to get the job done well, even under sub-optimal circumstances. If we're lucky, we get some great stuff done under those conditions. But who wants to leave governance to luck, when we could build and maintain our skills through intentional practice? So, what does practice look like? The most important thing is to take away the stakes. In other words, we're not making a consequential decision or learning about a complex part of the business or assessing a critical situation. We're just practicing! The next most important thing is to decide what you need to practice. Struggling to “be strategic”? Not asking great questions? Presentations too boring? Whatever it is, identify something you could stand to get better at, remove the stakes, and give your board and management team some space to play around and try some stuff. Whatever you learn, good or bad, take note and do things a little bit better when the stakes are back on the table.

The many pressures squeezing health care providers have all served to make the role of hospital trustees, or governing board members, more important than ever. These boards have been charged with making sure that quality metrics are met and that strategic priorities guide the missions. In this conversation, John Haupert, president and CEO of Grady Health System and the 2023 Chair of AHA's Board, and Greg Bentz, board chair of Saint Luke's Health and chair of AHA's Committee on Governance, discuss the thin margin of error that hospitals and health systems are facing, and how Saint Luke's is focusing on governance to help achieve the highest levels of excellence in providing health care.
Environmental, social, and governance, or ESG, has been in the news a lot lately—particularly the “E” when it comes to new and evolving regulations. There's been a greater push in the United States for transparency and disclosure of data regarding businesses' environmental impact, driven largely by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the National Advertising Division of the Better Business Bureau. In fact, California is expected to soon be the first US state to require company reporting related to environmental impact. So, what does this all mean for companies that are working to become more sustainable? How do you even begin to report on emissions and environmental impact? In this episode of LRN's Principled Podcast host Eric Morehead explores how transparency plays a crucial role in corporate sustainability with Andrea Peters, the senior counsel of Interface. For a full transcript of this podcast, visit the episode page at LRN.com.

Andrea earned her J.D. from the Vanderbilt University School of Law and her Bachelor of Arts degree in Advertising from the Pennsylvania State University, where she was the student marshall (valedictorian) for the College of Communications. Andrea resides in Atlanta with her 10-year-old daughter. She has gone sky diving twice, bungee jumping once, and ziplining once. She enjoys cooking, wine and travel. When she retires, Andrea plans to go back to college to audit all of the hard but interesting classes without worrying about writing papers or taking exams.

Full Text of ReadingsFriday of the Twenty-fourth Week in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 447The Saint of the day is Saint Lorenzo Ruiz and CompanionsSaint Lorenzo Ruiz and Companions’ Story Lorenzo was born in Manila of a Chinese father and a Filipino mother, both Christians. Thus he learned Chinese and Tagalog from them, and Spanish from the Dominicans whom he served as altar boy and sacristan. He became a professional calligrapher, transcribing documents in beautiful penmanship. He was a full member of the Confraternity of the Holy Rosary under Dominican auspices. He married and had two sons and a daughter. Lorenzo’s life took an abrupt turn when he was accused of murder. Nothing further is known except the statement of two Dominicans that “he was sought by the authorities on account of a homicide to which he was present or which was attributed to him.” At that time, three Dominican priests, Antonio Gonzalez, Guillermo Courtet, and Miguel de Aozaraza, were about to sail to Japan in spite of a violent persecution there. With them was a Japanese priest, Vicente Shiwozuka de la Cruz, and a layman named Lazaro, a leper. Lorenzo, having taken asylum with them, was allowed to accompany them. But only when they were at sea did he learn that they were going to Japan. They landed at Okinawa. Lorenzo could have gone on to Formosa, but, he reported, “I decided to stay with the Fathers, because the Spaniards would hang me there.” In Japan they were soon found out, arrested, and taken to Nagasaki. The site of wholesale bloodshed when the atomic bomb was dropped had known tragedy before. The 50,000 Catholics who once lived there were dispersed or killed by persecution. They were subjected to an unspeakable kind of torture: After huge quantities of water were forced down their throats, they were made to lie down. Long boards were placed on their stomachs and guards then stepped on the ends of the boards, forcing the water to spurt violently from mouth, nose and ears. The superior, Fr. Gonzalez, died after some days. Both Fr. Shiwozuka and Lazaro broke under torture, which included the insertion of bamboo needles under their fingernails. But both were brought back to courage by their companions. In Lorenzo's moment of crisis, he asked the interpreter, “I would like to know if, by apostatizing, they will spare my life.” The interpreter was noncommittal, but in the ensuing hours Lorenzo felt his faith grow strong. He became bold, even audacious, with his interrogators. The five were put to death by being hanged upside down in pits. Boards fitted with semi-circular holes were fitted around their waists and stones put on top to increase the pressure. They were tightly bound, to slow circulation and prevent a speedy death. They were allowed to hang for three days. By that time Lorenzo and Lazaro were dead. Still alive, the three priests were then beheaded. In 1987, Pope John Paul II canonized these six and 10 others: Asians and Europeans, men and women, who spread the faith in the Philippines, Formosa, and Japan. Lorenzo Ruiz is the first canonized Filipino martyr. The liturgical feast of Saint Lorenzo Ruiz and Companions is celebrated on September 28. Reflection We ordinary Christians of today—how would we stand up in the circumstances these martyrs faced? We sympathize with the two who temporarily denied the faith. We understand Lorenzo's terrible moment of temptation. But we see also the courage—inexplainable in human terms—which surged from their store of faith. Martyrdom, like ordinary life, is a miracle of grace. Saint of the Day, Copyright Franciscan Media

Ham is an active long-time member of the Boston entrepreneurial community, a seasoned board members, a prolific author on the subject of boards/governance and the founder of the Launchpad Venture Group, one of the driving forces behind organized angel investing in the United States. In this episode Ham, we discuss many areas of board practice with someone that for many years has helped and written about how to make boards better. We love our listeners! Drop us a line or give us guest suggestions here. Big Ideas/Thoughts/Quotes: Board questions around AI: What are the strategic objectives of the company, what are the business problems and the opportunities that that company should be going after. Three questions to begin: 1. What specific business problems or opportunities do you plan to address with AI? And how do you anticipate that AI is going to help the company achieve its strategic objectives? It's all great to have tools like AI, but if they're not fundamentally driving the business in a direction that helps you achieve those strategic objectives, why bother? 2. How will you manage the ethical and legal implications of using AI, such as bias, discrimination, and compliance with regulations and industry standards? AI tools where they haven't been trained on a wide enough data sets, they haven't had enough experience, nor have the users of it have enough experience to understand whether they're going down a path that might lead to issues down the road. 3. How will you communicate the use of AI to your stakeholders, and that includes employees, customers, investors, and regulators. And how will you address the concerns about the use of AI? “There's not time for this in every board meeting, but a board should have at least one or two strategic sessions a year that are focused on technology.” “When you think about a financial institution, a healthcare institution, they have a lot of data that is extremely sensitive; personal data, healthcare data, financial data. You don't want that escaping out into the world by using one of these tools that you don't necessarily know what it's going to do with that data.” One of the biggest concerns is that sort of bias and discrimination that can occur with AI tools where they haven't been trained on a wide enough data sets, they haven't had enough experience, nor have the users of it have enough experience to understand whether they're going down a path that might lead to issues down the road. even if you don't get the full effect, it's important to get it right so that as you go forward, you've identified any issues that might exist, whether it's bias, discrimination, or something else before it's everywhere, which will make it more difficult to control at that point. Whether you need to explain that AI is, for example, reading your medical scan, your MRI or your CT, or whether you need to explain to your customers that an AI is either giving you a thumbs up or a thumbs down on we're giving you a mortgage or whatever. I think that's going to be a more challenging question about how you communicate that- I don't think there's necessarily a good answer for that today I do want to say one thing about all three of these questions that I've asked, they are questions that you should be asking of the chief technology people in the organization, not just the CTO because the CTO may or may not be the one who is most expert in these particular areas Raza, what do you think about having an AI board member? I think a copilot, an assistive technology, is definitely a very interesting thing for boards. It can make them more effective. It is possible that you have a large set of materials and going through those, you do miss things as a human, but an automated process and AI could definitely come up with more. This is a really great idea for a startup, and I think somebody will do it. Note: All of the board questions generated by ChatGPT about AI are listed below Board of Cambridge Trust I was brought onto the board specifically to address one of the new strategic areas that Cambridge Trust wanted to go in. Massachusetts has a very high concentration of companies in sort of the innovation economy, startup tech, and life science companies. It was seen by corporate management at Cambridge Trust that this would be a good area for growth within the bank. Most tech startups are losing money and most banks don't like to loan money to organizations that are losing money, so I had to explain what kinds of companies that, even though they might be losing money, would have good solid financials that would make it so that they could be the type of institution that you would give a loan to. Lead Director In our case, the lead director has several key roles. One, the lead director speaks to the CEO at least on a weekly basis. It's sort of a sounding board for the CEO to update on what's going on that may need the board to hear more detail about. I also work closely with the CEO to determine what the agenda for the next board meeting is going to be. During board meetings, the lead director leads executive sessions, whether those executive sessions include CEO or whether they're just the independent directors. Term Limits “Up until last year, we had age-type of term limit and that was the age of 72. That was the mandatory retirement age. There are two shareholder services out there, ISS, Institutional Shareholder Services and Glass Lewis, and both of them are not proponents of age-based term limits so we've removed our age-based term limits.” Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution For those who don't know anything about Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution…it is the pre-eminent oceanographic research institute in the world. It's based in Woods Hole, Massachusetts and I spend a lot of time down here in the summer. I was brought on to help the institute with issues around technology transfer, so research institute, lots of great scientists and engineers, sometimes they come up with ideas and products that could potentially be commercialized, so the goal was to figure out what's the best way to do that. Model Startup Board There are three key attributes that I look at for building sort of a model board. First of all, diversity, and we've talked about that a little bit already, but great boards are comprised of individuals with diverse talents, background, instincts, and expertise. Next, you need relevance. Diverse backgrounds and experience are only useful to the company if they're relevant to where the company is going, not where the company was, where it's going. And then aligned, great boards are focused on a common long-term goal, and they ensure that senior management buys into that future.

Key Takeaways The community of the future adopts the best of senior living and aging in place and provides new ways of building connections. Lifestyle communities are more than a building—they create a lifestyle that is consistent with where you have been and where you are trying to go. The loneliest you can be is around a group of people where you don't belong. Hospitalization brings a host of negative health consequences, increasing the risk of dementia by 50%, a 30% increased risk of heart and stroke, and up to a four times higher risk of death. Nutrition and exercise are the cornerstones of health. There is no way to be healthy without daily movement, ideally 150 minutes of moderate intensity a week that gets the heart up. The pandemic brought more options to successfully age in place, including telemedicine and options for food delivery and home maintenance.

Joining us for a wide-ranging interview on how a more than 100 year old retailer stays relevant is Greg Hicks, CEO of Canadian Tire. We start with some history, tracing the evolution of one of North America's most successful retailers from its modest beginnings as a tire shop to today's diverse portfolio of store formats, powerful private brands, and financial services, comprising over 1,700 locations. While Canadian Tire is rather unique in its iconic position in Canadian culture and dealer-based business model, their embrace of "connected retail" and how they stay customer-centric through an intense local focus contains incredibly valuable lessons for all retailers regardless of product focus or wherever they might be located. Greg, who was named the "Canadian Retailer of the Year" by the Retail Council of Canada earlier this year, also shares some of his key leadership principles, including how to balance pursuing short and long-term priorities. But first, as usual, we kick-off with a fast-paced review of the week in retail news, including mostly depressing earnings reports from a diverse set of retailers including Dollars General, American Eagle, Saks, and the brand formerly known as Restoration Hardware. In stark contrast to last week's episode, Tractor Supply escalates its commitment to a winning course of action by picking up the pace of its store openings. We close wth more disruption in the disruptor space as Draper James, the Reese Witherspoon founded clothing brand, gets acquired. Our interview with TSC's Hal Lawton.

Matt Stanislao just wanted to be a cop. His father warned him, and after serving 27 years himself, he knew exactly what the problems Matt would face, which had nothing to do with the public or criminals. After two wrongful terminations rooted in discrimination for being gay, Matt fought back and won. However, he's not the same officer or the same person. In his near 3 year separation from the police department, he was accepted into Columbia University to earn a Masters in advanced clinical social work. After graduating and passing the Boards, he is now also a licensed social worker and chairs the Bergen County Board of a Mental Health. His workshops and film shorts reduce the stigma of asking for help and shows officers that psychotherapy isn't just for those with mental illness, arguably more for those that are suffering in silence.

We're entering a busy half of the year for the label, and while we don't always use the isolatedmix series to help tee up what's in store, Alex Albrecht also happens to be a brilliant selector and curator of many great mixes over the years. Yes, you did read that right, Alex will soon be gracing ASIP with a new release, to be announced in full very shortly and available at the end of September. We had hoped to get this mix out a little earlier in the year but life got in the way for us both, and after a small trip to Japan recently, Alex was able to get some answers down to a few of my questions in anticipation for his awaited release here on ASIP. ~It's been interesting to see how you've created a very unique style and approach between your own project, with Sean as Albrecht La'Brooy and under the Melquíades guise. How would you describe the differences between them all?I originally created the Melquiades alias as a way to separate club/dancefloor music from more downtempo/ambient productions under my own name. The music I now produce under Alex Albrecht incorporates all sorts of sounds and influences and in my development, I don't now see a reason to differentiate. Campfire Stories by Alex Albrecht Campfire Stories was quite the debut album, and received such a great reception it seems. It combined lovely atmospheres and house elements, with downtempo and instrumental (even jazz). How are your albums born usually? My albums are usually created through my field recordings and recent experiences. I generally take recordings and loop/manipulate them to create a canvas and use that as the inspiration for each new track. When I see a larger album coming together I try to identify gaps in the concept and fill it with new productions. Your own label imprint, Analogue Attic was home to much of your early work and continues to host some of your music alongside others. How did the label aspect come about? The label was definitely created as a way to release our own music but very quickly became a medium to put out music from our friends and influences. The ambition has always been to showcase ambient music specifically made in Australia. We also hope to showcase music that does not generally conform to current trends in the global electronic scene. Healesville by Albrecht La'Brooy As mentioned already, your music is rich with field recordings and vivid instrumentation. What does your studio setup consist of usually? And what elements have remained a constant? My studio has been very consistent throughout the last 6 or 7 years. It has a Nord A1R, A Blofeld, a few Yamaha digital pianos, and some eventide effect pedals. Of course, there is also the Sony PCM A10 recorder which is really an incredible piece of tech. If your label (Analogue Attic) is any indication, the output and potential of producers in Australia seem very rich and fertile - is this true? How would you describe the "scene" for this type of music where you are? I'd have to agree – it is certainly a fertile scene in Aus with amazing music being produced around the country. There are many artists blending strong musical themes and elements with electronic elements and many gigs/shows aim to push boundaries and do something out of the ordinary. Your isolated mix captures your sound very well and includes a variety of styles and influences, what was your approach? I am often commuting to work by bike and love an interesting, hypnotic mix to push me along. I have been listening to ASIP mixes for years and was compelled to dive deep into my old libraries to capture some of the nostalgia that I feel with the earliest memories of ASIP. I brought a few of these into the picture with Dousk, John Beltran, BOC and Jesse Somfay (among others) and was also really happy with how well they've stood the test of time.Other than ahem, a pretty special record dropping here on ASIP soon, what can we expect from you for the remainder of 2023?It's unclear for now but I'm always making music and searching for inspiration. I have a huge collection of field recordings from Japan so will be surely using these in the short term to see what it inspires. ~Stay tuned for news of Alex's album on ASIP set to be announced very soon, and available at the end of the month. astrangelyisolatedplace · isolatedmix 123 - Alex Albrecht Listen on Soundcloud the ASIP Podcast or the (new!) 9128.live appDownload MP3Tracklist:01.

There are many benefits to sending a cheese board instead of flowers. Cheese boards are more thoughtful and personal. When you send someone a cheese board, you're showing that you've taken the time to choose the perfect cheeses, meats, and accompaniments for their taste. This is a much more thoughtful gesture than sending a generic bouquet of flowers. Cheese boards are more versatile. Flowers are typically associated with special occasions, such as birthdays, anniversaries, and Valentine's Day. Cheese boards, on the other hand, can be enjoyed on any occasion. Whether you're celebrating a special event or just want to show someone you're thinking of them, a cheese board is always a welcome gift. Cheese boards are more delicious. Let's face it, flowers are pretty but they don't taste very good. Cheese boards, on the other hand, are packed with flavor. With a cheese board, you can enjoy a variety of different cheeses, meats, and accompaniments. This is a much more satisfying way to show someone you care. Here are some additional benefits of sending a cheese board: Cheese boards are more affordable. Flowers can be expensive, especially if you're buying them from a florist. Cheese boards, on the other hand, are much more affordable. You can find a cheese board and all the necessary accompaniments at your local grocery store. Cheese boards are more sustainable. Flowers are often grown in greenhouses, which can be harmful to the environment. Cheese boards, on the other hand, are made with natural ingredients and can be enjoyed without any waste. Cheese boards are more fun. Who doesn't love a good cheese board? It's a great way to enjoy a variety of different flavors and textures. Cheese boards are also a great way to get people together and have a conversation. So next time you're looking for a thoughtful and delicious gift, consider sending a cheese board instead of flowers. Your recipient is sure to appreciate it!
