Cognitive process resulting in choosing a course of action
Jeff grew up on a 100-acre farm in north central Ohio. His Papaw bought that farm with his life savings, and it was on this very farm that he learned most of the lessons that have guided him through his personal and professional journey. His Papaw believed that problem solvers ruled the world and that with enough creativity, ingenuity and in our case, a little duct tape, that you could solve any problem and likely help anyone else solve theirs as well. Today, Jeff calls that the “Platinum rule”. That you should treat others better than they expect to be treated. In this episode, Brad and Jeff discuss Jeff's story and what it means to problem solve with critical thinking. 00:00 Intro 01:11 Jeff's story 02:01 “Hard work and perseverance is what gets you ahead in life.” - Jeff Bloomfield 06:01 Braintrust 08:37 “All human decision making happens emotionally first.”- Jeff Bloomfield 12:47 Bomb: When the human brain is under pressure it always communicates from its highest level of training, knowledge, and belief. 14:16 Neuroselling on Amazon 15:30 Reading 17:45 Join Brad's closer school https://www.closerschoollive.com 19:05 Beliefs drive behaviors 21:31 There are two types of trust: personal and professional 24:09 The formula 30:00 How to tell the story 37:30 Ask questions that matter 42:00 Leadership 44:18 “You can't manage people, you can manage processes, but you have to lead people.” - Jeff Bloomfield 49:17 For businesses go to https://www.braintrustgrowth.com and for individuals go to https://www.braintrustacademy.com 53:57 Bomb: Without repetition, the habit never forms
Technology is under the microscope, as are the behaviors of the people who develop and deploy it. As technology impacts virtually every aspect of society, it's use within the life sciences goes beyond traditional bioethical topics. This creates a host of questions for people and businesses working at the forefront of health innovation. In this episode, hear Nick Bott, Global Head, Bioethics and Technology Ethics at Takeda as we discuss: What is being done to ensure that the decisions around the use of technology for our health and wellbeing are carefully considered and applied? Whose job is it to address the ethical questions in the development of AI and ML algorithms? How can life science companies lead the way in setting standards for ethical development? What can we learn from Tony Stark - otherwise known as Iron Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? What is a 'consequence scanning workshop'? What is the role of regulation in setting standards and principles?

We originally had researcher and author Emily Oster on the show to chat about her book, The Family Firm, which is a helpful guidebook for parents that offers a smart method for making decisions (because as parents, we make a lot of them). However, we couldn't have her on and not chat about some of the research she has done about opening the schools in the pandemic, and most recently, the effectiveness of masks, which has made her reviled and revered. What you'll hear is a lively chat about lots of important things that we know lots of parents are thinking about right now. And, as always, we share our cool picks of the week.

Certain things are immediately recognizable—McDonalds, the Marlboro Man, the Coca-Cola logo. The power of brand memory and recognition keeps these at the forefront of our minds, and it's often the same for politicians and other known personalities who have built their brands. So, how does recognizing a brand change how we respond? In this episode, Bill Stierle and Tom discuss and analyze how brand recognition works and how it affects our conflict resolution and decision-making skills.

Whether you're an empty nester or a newlywed; Whether you're a mom or littles or teens; or whether you're a single adult going home for the holidays, this episode is for you because we break down how to love people well and navigate family dynamics into four different categories: How to navigate differences What to do when you feel unsafe How to hold hard conversations well And making plans with love. In this interview, Wendy gives guidance about: How to navigate conversations about gift-giving when families have different budgets and mindsets about gifts, What grace looks like when your family is unkind How to start hard conversations when you know the other party won't like your answer And how to balance family personalities, when one side plans way ahead and the other makes last-minute plans. Remember that Wendy is offering general advice that isn't specific to your family or situation, so if you'd like further clarification or support, please seek out wise Christian counseling. Question breakdown by timing: 15:05: How do we navigate conversations about gift-giving and budgets? 18:25: How do we handle it when a distant, older family member gives the opposite parenting instruction then we might give at a family gathering? 21:05: What do we do when Uncle Buster goes off on his latest political beliefs; ones we do not hold? 25:51: What does grace look like during the holidays when family members are unkind toward us and we don't feel safe around them? 37:50: When a member of our family is navigating a hard situation but she doesn't talk about it, should we bring it up if only to say we're here to love and serve OR do we keep quiet until that family member brings it up? 42:30: What do you do when a family member monopolizes and dominates a conversation? 45:55: What do you do when a family member tells us all our faults? 54:25: How can we say “no” to an event that feels life-draining to us, but is super-important to the host? 59:50: How do we handle balancing both families: one side of the family plans months in advance while the other side does not? 1:03:45: For empty-nesters who want to spend time with their adult kids, but those kids make plans at the last minute, and the last-minute-ness stresses them out, how can they approach their adult kids in love?

Welcome to the '5th Thing' with Amy & Kat!! Today they discussed this email about “signs” (when it comes to decision making) that was sent in by a listener: “One way to think about the ‘sign' is - if your decision is ‘no,' take a minute to pretend that ‘no' is your decision. How does that make you feel? Do you feel relieved, at peace, happy? Or, do you feel sad, doubtful, regretful? If you can't decipher how you feel, you could also try to picture your life 1 year (or however long) after making your ‘no' decision. Do you imagine yourself better off, or not? I thought Kat with her background as a therapist might also have some advice!” Thank you licensed therapist, Kat Defatta, for joining us with her wisdom.

Risk and intelligence are two factors that define the success of any organization. Information is everywhere, and yet companies and organizations are still faced with data-related challenges that hinder their development. Is information-gathering all there is to running an operation? In this episode, Leo Tilman joins Alexander McCaig to discuss risk and its relevance to finance, strategy, and more. Leo Tilman is a leading authority on strategy and risk, who predicted the financial crisis between 2007-2008. He also authored Agility: How to Navigate the Unknown and Seize Opportunity in a World of Disruption, which is featured in this podcast. Definition of Agility Within Risk Intelligence To adapt to the everchanging uncertainties that organizations, governments, and even individuals face, agility is a must. This seven-letter word is often defined as the ability to assess and respond to changes, while making it distinct from flexibility or adaptability. What sets agility apart is that it calls for an individual to be purposefully decisive, while still grounded in the will to succeed in whatever endeavor an individual or group is facing. Regardless of an entity's position in the world, they are always within the environment that surrounds them. To understand what defines an individual's or a group's agility, we must first define the environment they are in. This is important because it helps provide insight into how agility can be expressed in those specific circumstances. An environment consists of two components: first, the dominant trends that shape the world around us. These are the specifics of an environment, and illustrate how the environment is a dynamic entity that is capable of changing over time. The second component refers to the fundamental nature of environments, described through theories. An example is Clausewitz's theory on war and its accurate description of competitive environments. The Portfolio of Risks and Risk Assessment An organization must be proactive in assessing the risks that it will face. Here comes the portfolio of risks, which is a set of risks that an organization must make to meet its objective. This involves multiple facets within the organization, like financial risks, strategic risks, and so on. However, the executives of an organization need to come together and discuss the risks they face, as well as the environment they are in. By discussing and analyzing their circumstance, they're able to determine what factors they have control over, and what they don't. Because of the vast amounts of data that companies and organizations have access to, it becomes a challenge to try and filter through all the data. Furthermore, companies soon realize that truly valuable information, like data about their clients or competitors, isn't available all the time. And so, being proactive about data-gathering is essential. By dedicating time and resources towards gathering valuable data, one can understand not only the situation but also the necessary risks needed to be taken. With that in mind, the portfolio of risks is then created. The Human Element Within an Organization Regardless of the amount of information that an organization has, and regardless of the strategies put in place, nothing can succeed without the human element. It is the flexibility of human beings that allows groups to move towards their goals. It is the ability for human beings to adapt through the uncertainty of an environment, and process information that may change the status quo of their situation. Because of the complexity of the environment that anyone is in, it is up to the agility of human beings to formulate responses towards these changes. For that reason, cultural assessments within an organization are important to move through the internal fog of data that organizations have access to. Because no matter how well we know our circumstances, our clients, or our competition, none of it matters until we first know ourselves.

Research tells us that it is estimated that the average adult makes more than 35,000 decisions on an average day. That is a lot of decisions...! Decision-making is not only about the act of making a decision, but there is a process. If you are not using a process to help you decide on things, trust me your decision-making will be a whole lot harder. Tune in and learn about one process that may help you tremendously. Thanks, and enjoy...!
When making strategic decisions, who's supreme? Shareholders or employees? On today's podcast, Andy Alsop, CEO of The Receptionist, shares his enthusiasm for building a truly hybrid company where the focus and attention is on prioritizing employees over shareholders. What is Employee Supremacy?Shareholder supremacy, a term coined by Milton Friedman in the 70's and 80's, was basically about decision making. Under shareholder supremacy, leaders are responsible for increasing the value of shares to each one of the company's investors, and every decision is based around that mission.For example, under shareholder supremacy, if you're trying to determine how much to invest in employee benefits (an expense that is seen as primarily negatively impacting the bottom line) you naturally want to drive the cost of benefits down to the lowest possible amount. You would choose the bare minimum necessary to continue to attract employees so that you can increase profits and thus shareholder value.Alternatively, with an Employee Supremacy mindset, you want to increase the amount of benefits that your employees have. Doing this helps your employees feel secure, feel that thecompany trusts them, and gives them a sense of ease knowing that they aren't going to have to worry about whether they can make ends meet in the case of an emergency because those benefits are there for them.The result: your employees feel valued, safe and have greater trust in the company they work for. And when employees feel trusted and trust the company, they make decisions that are in the best interest of the company, allowing them to better serve their customers. Under the employee supremacy mindset, when leaders make decisions, they increase productivity with their company, give better service to their customers, and create trusting teams that help achieve their company's mission and goals. In the end both methods drive shareholder value but focusing on employee supremacy drives shareholder value more quickly.Decision Making Examples from an “Employee Supremacy” MindsetWhen COVID hit, Andy and his leadership team did three things:Implemented a COVID Family Travel Program--The company paid to send young, single workers to fly home to their families, Improved Health Benefits--They eliminated insurance premium contributions for employees, and increased the contribution towards families. Instituted the company's Just Cause--Focusing on the company's employees and its community, they have changed how the leaders make decisions.Because of these three decisions based on “Employee Supremacy,” they learned that making all of these decisions during a pandemic the team knew they were with a company that was focused, not on short-term results, but on the “long game.” They created what Simon Sinek describes as “Trusting Teams.”The Role of Company Values and a Just Cause in Employee SupremacyAt The Receptionist, their values are an acronym called FABRIC (Fun, Authentic, Bold, Respectful, Innovative and Collaborative). Andy says the important part of core values is you actually have to live them. Could potential candidates who are seeking a position at your company actually see those values being lived out? During the pandemic their company chose to fall back on those values and really focused on making sure that these values became a part of daily-life working at their company.

The contemporary world is saturated with ways in which we can experience rewards that were historically much more difficult to access. Although this idea of a world filled with dopamine fixes is not new, it can be continually surprising just how extreme this reality has become. Here on the show today to talk about this issue and her most recent book, Dopamine Nation, is Dr. Anna Lembke, and we have a fascinating and important conversation in which she unpacks the human body and mind in relation to the world around us at present.

In this episode, I talk about being in the best state to make good decisions.
The building blocks of facilitation can be considered as quite practical, tangible things: workshops, agendas, exercises, timing, and tools. Underpinning these facilitation essentials, though, are intricate psychological and behavioural phenomena.This week's episode is the perfect testament to that truth.Karen Schmidt – the founder of the international innovation community, ‘Over the Fence' – joins me in this episode to discuss decision-making.In many organisations, decision-making can be more of a routine than a process. Stakeholders might be left out, partners might be disenfranchised, and the best decision might not be made. Easing the friction in and reliance on management routines to improve decision-making is Karen's fascination.There can't be many workshops work listeners who don't feel the same way!Find out about:● Exploring the integral role of alignment in any decision-making process● How to democratise our language and create alignment and unity● Why established routines can harm decision-making● How to identify and understand what decision-making ‘role' we are occupying● Why it's healthy to flex decision-making between detail-orientation and bigger picture ideas● Why decision-making, leadership, and ownership all tie in to the idea of taking and making spaceDon't miss the next show: Subscribe to the show with your favourite podcast player.

Our lives are endlessly complicated and our decisions are almost always laced with layers of nuance which is why it's always a challenge (one I love!) to create episodes about decision-making.

What does a husband's headship mean when it comes to decision-making? Scripture teaches that God the Father is the head of God the Son, but his headship wasn't exercised independently of the Son because the Father and the Son are one. The same should be true of decisions made in a marriage. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
When discussing The J.U.S.T. Philosophy, the term "for the overall good of everyone involved" has come up multiple times when discussing conscious decision making or being considerate to others. If our intention is to make the world a better place, then doesn't it make sense to consider the energetic effect that our decisions have on others?Other Relevant Episodes:Tips to Help You with Discernment and Conscious Decision Makinghttps://wisewhyspodcast.simplecast.com/episodes/tips-to-help-you-with-discernment-and-conscious-descision-makingHow to Utilize the Concept of Karma for Self Growthhttps://wisewhyspodcast.simplecast.com/episodes/how-to-utilize-the-concept-of-karma-for-self-growthPolarity vs. Duality and the Role of Acceptance when Judging What is 'Right' or 'Wrong'https://wisewhyspodcast.simplecast.com/episodes/polarity-vs-duality-and-the-role-ofRedefining Freedom: We May Not Be As Free As We Thinkhttps://wisewhyspodcast.simplecast.com/episodes/redefining-freedom-we-may-not-be-as-free-as-we-thinkHow to Identify and Manage Situations When Emotions Are Presenthttps://wisewhyspodcast.simplecast.com/episodes/how-to-identify-and-manage-situations-when-emotions-are-present
Bestselling author and happiness guru Gretchen Rubin isn't Type A. She's Type A+, so she knows her way around a well-ordered pros and cons list. But when she and her family were deciding whether or not get a dog, that kind of hyperlogical thinking didn't feel quite right, and ultimately had her going around in circles. Instead, she asked herself, ‘What's the bigger life?' When it comes to major life decisions, breaking things down into tiny details doesn't reflect the bigness of the decision. So with that in mind, Gretchen shares a number of questions she asks herself in order to make better decisions.

Some key areas of the adult decision making capacity law have been standing for decades and the Law Commission says it's time for a refresh. This aspect of law affects tens of thousands of New Zealanders, whose decision making capacity is compromised and is particularly relevant for people with acquired brain injuries, mental health needs, neurodisabilities and also for an increasingly ageing population. Law Commission/Te Aka Matua o te Ture Commissioner/ Kaikomihana Geof Shirtcliffe says core areas of the current law are out of step with international expectation, and the review will also focus on te ao Maori perspectives.
