How do you flip the script on a really tough childhood? Shawn Medina had the type of childhood where both his parents were no help to his sister and him. They were shipped around in and out of foster care because his mom was strung out on drugs and his dad wasn't any better living 1000's of miles away with his own personal issues. Shawn is very open and honest about his own struggles that landed him in prison and then a return to prison on a violation of his probation. He leads us through his struggles and how he found his way. He finally found his passion... met a woman that he loves, and operates Steel and Ink Tattoo Studio with his wife. This famed ink shop is not just doing award winning tattoos. Shawn and his wife have a passion for giving to the underserved communities and charities such as the Shriners, women's safe houses, Missouri Network and Opiate Reform, local school fundraisers, as well as, volunteering his time to help feed the homeless. Steel and Ink offers a financial scholarship program for graduating high school seniors from the area called, "Good Decisions." All the things that Shawn knew he needed growing up he tries to give back now using his success to elevate people in need.

Are We Managing Our Lives, or Really Changing Them?Our last good decision for September is to commit to real change, instead of just managing things over and over!I see people in my office every week who are hurting, and often times I can offer them a fix for their problem. But some folks just want to manage their pain, take a pill, or do something that's quicker and less scary than having surgery.This episode was inspired by Tommy Walker's song Water Into Wine, which was written out of the story in John 2:1-5 .In the story, Jesus changed water into wine. This wasn't just a little change of the water. He didn't add some powder to it and stir it up. He actually transformed it into the best wine the people had ever tasted.Take a few minutes and look into this question with me: are you tired of just trying to manage the issues and problems you're dealing with in your life, or do you have the courage to actually change them for good? Scriptures mentioned: John 2:1-5 , Isaiah 51:1-2, Isaiah 61:1-3(Music shared on The Dr. Lee Warren Podcast is authorized under BMI license #61063253 and ASCAP license #400010513 )Links: Water Into Wine by Tommy Walker videoThe Book of John in Song by Tommy WalkerMy appearance at First Presbyterian Church Bonita Springs Florida This is a public episode.

I greet you in Jesus' precious name. It is Monday morning, 12th of September and it is the year 2022. This is your friend, Angus Buchan, with a thought for today. If we turn straight in the word of God to the Book of Psalms... Now, this is an interesting Psalm because it is a Psalm that was written by Solomon, not by David. Psalm 72, I am reading from verse 1:“Give the king Your judgments, O God,And Your righteousness to the king's Son.He will judge Your people with righteousness,And Your poor with justice.”And then we go to Matthew, the Lord says:“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”Matthew 7:7The wisest man who ever lived, Solomon, why was he so wise we may ask? Quite simply because he sought counsel from God and not from man. You and I are living in perilous times and we need to start seeking the counsel of God, if we are to succeed - especially in our working environment. We carry cellphones around with us and can google anything at any time we want but there are a hundred different answers for every question. The same thing applies in our home situation... There are so many theories on how to bring up your children, how to manage your home, the role of the mother in the home and position of the father in the home. A lot of it is good stuff but remember, a good idea is not always a God idea. You know, when people invite me to speak with preaching appointments and I get a lot, I do not just receive them and acknowledge them because it seems to be a good opportunity, no. The only invites I accept are the ones that I believe the Lord Jesus Christ would have me accept. I always go into prayer and ask the Lord. I have also got some very trusted people around me and I ask them about each invitation. We really need to seek God's counsel in every decision we make, then we will find that things will go well in the workplace, in the home and in the ministry.May Jesus bless you today as you start to put Him first, just like Solomon did, and then you will be surprised with the good decisions that you make.Jesus bless you and goodbye.
It's Throwback Thursday!In September, we're making 30 good decisions. One of them is to learn to settle Hobson's Choices.Life is a Series of Hobson's ChoicesHobson's choiceA Hobson's choice is a free choice in which only one thing is offered. Because a person may refuse to accept what is offered, the two options are taking it or taking nothing. In other words, one may "take it or leave it". WikipediaThere are some things you need to settle if you're going to be happy. What are those for you? Write them down. Start praying for peace around them. Start clarifying the true things in your life, and disavow yourself from the notion that you need to have a pain-free life in order to be happy. The degree to which you couple emotion and circumstance in your life is inversely proportional to your ability to be happy.And what kills us, is the unwillingness to accept the quantum duality that life is hard and we can be happy anyway. We focus on the but and the and and the woe and the oh no and we forget the tho and yet.Scriptures MentionedJohn 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.Mark 9:28-29 After Jesus had gone indoors, his disciples asked him privately, “Why couldn't we drive it out?” 29 He replied, “This kind can come out only by prayer.Luke 18:1 Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.Matthew 5:30 And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.Hebrews 12:1-4Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. 4 In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.Psalm 34:18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

When it comes to good governance, the conditions for great decision-making will never be perfect. But the journey is what counts. Background music is Of the Stars by KC Roberts & the Live Revolution SCRIPT One thing I noticed when I first read chapter 1 of the Heath Brothers' Decisive is that I fall victim to the four villains of decision making basically every time I make any decision. I bet you felt the same. And it gets even worse when you're trying to make decisions as a group. Everyone brings their own “flavour” of the four villains to the table, making it super difficult to manage everything perfectly. Decisive offers some cool ideas, which you should review and test out yourself. I want to suggest that the status quo of boards of directors specifically, and corporate governance in general, create basically the perfect conditions for the four villains to thrive: time scarcity + information asymmetry + expertise asymmetry + rule-driven norms and so on, so on, so on. So here's the thing: if you buy into my definition of good governance even a little bit, the definition being actively creating conditions that maximize the likelihood that effective decisions will get made, then the status quo of boards – from the rules of order, to the structure of meetings, to the layout of the boardroom to the flow of conversations – all of it has the significant potential to work AGAINST good governance. So, to the extent that you see a bit of the four villains of decision-making in yourself, your organization, and your boardroom…what you're seeing is NORMAL, but it's also bad governance. The next time you craft an agenda, prepare a board presentation, frame a key decision, kick off a conversation, read your pre-read materials, etc. Keep the four villains in mind and ask how you can set yourself, your board, your management team up to create the conditions for effective decisions. It won't be perfect, but the effort itself is, in my opinion, the key to good governance.
George Estrada, Principal Strategic Advisor for Credit Unions at AWS, emphasizes that listening to the needs of your accountholders and community members is very important to retain them. In this episode of the Digital Banking Podcast, Estrada and host Josh DeTar considered the relationship between a credit union (CU) and its members. They discussed the importance of user experience, the positive impact of innovative external sources, and how to develop a data strategy that protects your data as a CU.
Overconfidence is my "favourite" of the Heath Brothers' four villains of decision making. It's simultaneously super obnoxious and super universal. And boardrooms provide the perfect environment for overconfidence to thrive and get in the way of your decisions. Background music is Of the Stars by KC Roberts & the Live Revolution ADDITIONAL RESOURCES: Freakonomics Radio Season 9, Episode 46 Gender Differences in Overconfidence and Decision-Making in High-Stakes Competitions Gender Differences in Performance Predictions: Evidence from the Cognitive Reflection Test The Power of Precise Predictions SCRIPT Maybe “favourite” isn't the perfect word here, but I'll say it anyway: overconfidence is my favourite of the Heath Brothers' four villains of decision-making. It's so complex, insidious, unconscious, and nearly ubiquitous. Overconfidence even FEELS good, so…well, it's pretty hard to steer completely around it in group decision environments like boardrooms. Take some time to scan the academic literature on overconfidence, including awesome recent stuff by Philip Tetlock from University of Pennsylvania, and the amazing book “Range” by David Epstein. Basically, it turns out that the more expertise you have in a specific field, the worse you get at making predictions about that field…and the more confident are at making those bad predictions. Another messed up thing about overconfidence? It's deeply gendered. Men, unsurprisingly, fall victim to overconfidence far more readily than women – hence the tendency to “mansplain.” Women, on the other hand, are more likely to be victims of UNDERconfidence, which as you can imagine also impedes effective decision-making. I've put some interesting links in the episode description for you to check out if you want to see more of the research in this area. People usually become corporate directors specifically because they have deep expertise in some area or another. So, as experts, how can we be useful in the boardroom without inviting the villains into the mix? My best advice is to lean on your expertise to ask big questions, tell cool stories, start interesting conversations…instead of just telling people what you think the future holds. No matter how confident you feel.
Boardrooms might seem like emotionless environments, but they *really* aren't. Even though we can't stop ourselves from feeling emotions, we can definitely acknowledge and manage the influence our emotions have on our decisions. In this episode, I refer to a recent episode of the No Stupid Questions podcast. Listen to it here: Background music is Of the Stars by KC Roberts & the Live Revolution SCRIPT Another of the Heath Brothers' villains of decision-making is short-term emotion. Many of us think of corporate decisions, especially those that happen in boardrooms, as being predictable, regulated, structured, even somber. In my experience, that tends to be a pretty accurate description, but that absolutely does not mean that the process is devoid of emotion. Is embarrassment an emotion? According to the recent episode 109 of the awesome podcast “No Stupid Questions,” it definitely is. I talk to *a lot* of corporate directors…like a lot a lot…and there are as many as not who've confided in me that they've found themselves at one point or another unwilling to ask a question or raise a concern because they were for all intents and purposes EMBARRASSED. To admit they don't know, to disagree with a respected colleague, to push against the status quo, or whatever. And if someone – likely several someones – in your boardroom are too embarrassed to express themselves, then that somber boardroom vibe is clearly working at cross purposes to good governance. And that's not even addressing the times that directors might spontaneously feel anger, frustration, pride, elation…all in ways that could negatively impact their ability to be impartial participants in making decisions. In your homework, the Heath Brothers offer some good advice here. I think I would boil my own advice down to something pretty simple: sllllooowwww doowwwwnnn. Good decisions take time. Most decisions aren't emergencies, and if they are, you're even more likely to get tripped up by short-term emotion!
Next up on the list of the "villains" of decision-making is narrow framing. It's basically what we do to make decisions look and feel simpler than they are. And it's a major problem! Background music is Of the Stars by KC Roberts & the Live Revolution SCRIPT: Another one of the Heath Brothers' villains of decision making is what they call “narrow framing.” Here's my take. I always felt like the expression “don't bring me problems; bring me solutions” was just about the stupidest thing a leader could say. First off, isn't it a leader's job to help to, y'know…lead people through solutions to difficult problems? Maybe more importantly, it feels like an attempt to force people to expedite a decision. What's the easiest and most defensible way to expedite a decision? Probably to artificially frame it as a go/no-go scenario. “Are we gonna do X or not do X?” Or maybe if we're lucky it's a slightly more creative “are we gonna do X, or are we gonna do Y?” And in my experience, the conditions for decision-making in boardrooms are so bad that to a senior manager the idea of bringing multiple options to the board – as opposed to a done-deal ready for approval – is like a living nightmare. But what's the point of a board? For my take, listen back to episodes 3 and 51. I don't think any of us would answer that the point of a board is just to be an approving machine. In fact, even when managers bring go/no-go decisions to the board, they're usually only doing it because it's really hard to figure out how to engage the board in an efficient AND useful discussion about multiple paths or options. But the fact is that virtually every decision truly does have multiple paths or options beyond “yes” and “no”. The best way to start building better habits is to just rip off the band-aid and TRY bringing a decision to the board earlier, before management has digested it into a go/no-go binary. Give them a chance to help you narrow it down and provide varied perspectives. Whatever part of the discussion goes well, say out loud that it was good, and try to recreate those conditions again in the future. Whatever goes poorly, say THAT out loud and try to avoid those conditions in the future. Whatever you do, don't just relapse back into your old, narrow framing habits.
By now, we've all heard about confirmation bias, and if you did your homework from the last episode, it'll be really clear to you how it gets in the way of effective decision-making. So, what are we supposed to do about it? Background music is Of the Stars by KC Roberts & the Live Revolution SCRIPT: Now that you've read chapter 1 of Decisive by the Heath Brothers, let's take some time to talk through what they call the four villains of decision making, starting with confirmation bias. Since you're interested in corporate governance, chances are this isn't the first time you've heard or read about confirmation bias. The unconscious compulsion to embrace information that supports what you already believe to be true, and to reject information that contradicts what you already believe to be true. Let's be super, extra, ultra clear here: YOU, no matter who you are or what your perception of yourself might be, DO THOSE THINGS! *YOU* embrace information that supports what you already believe – regardless of whether you are correct – while rejecting information that contradicts what you believe. You aren't broken. It's just how people work. And you can already picture how this messes things up when groups – like boards of directors, for example – are trying to make decisions on short timelines and with incomplete information. Add on the fact that even that incomplete information sometimes gets delivered to boards in vast quantities – maybe hundreds and hundreds of pages. How else can we expect directors to synthesize all of it in the process of preparing for a meeting or decision? Confirmation bias gives us a shortcut – pay attention only to the stuff that tells us we're probably right. If you want advice on managing confirmation bias beyond what you learned in Decisive, a google rabbit hole awaits you. For now, try just re-framing board meetings as an opportunity to try to prove yourself WRONG. It's way more fun than loudly trying to convince people you're right, and you're WAY more likely to learn something from your peers.
Since we've established good governance as actively creating conditions to maximize the likelihood that effective decisions will get made, let's start exploring what it means to make good decisions. Over the next five episodes, we'll use the first chapter of Decisive by the Heath Brothers as our textbook. Download a free copy here: https://heathbrothers.com/member-content/decisive-chapter-1/ As always, the background music is Of the Stars by KC Roberts & the Live Revolution. SCRIPT: I've spent the last 114 episodes talking about corporate governance as the way decisions get made in a corporation, and the first chunk of this season talking about good governance as creating the conditions for effective decisions to get made, but what does that even mean? Well, this is one question where we – meaning YOU – have access a rich trove of scientific research and real-world evidence, so you won't have to just trust me and OMG to get you there. And lots of organizations apply what we've learned from all those insights to empower MANAGERS to make good decisions. Think of all the cool ways that meetings have changed over the years, or workspaces, or onboarding, or offsites. The thing is, no matter how well these new approaches work, they basically never find their way into boardrooms. Board processes, structures, rules of order, agendas, boardroom layouts…they all just basically stay the same, or close enough to the same that the impact on decisions is essentially nothing. And you know what? The moment you start paying attention, I bet you'll basically see and feel boardroom decisions suffering as a result. Over the next few episodes, we'll go over a few important elements of good – and bad – decision conditions. Our textbook, so to speak, will be the first chapter of the book Decisive by Chip and Dan Heath. Your homework is to read it before the next episode comes out in a few days. You can download a free copy by following the link in the episode description. I'll also put some links to some other cool articles on decision making in case you're interested. Have fun!

Make a donation to Unity Center of Norwalk "Changing My World" Rev. Shawn Moninger @ Unity Center of Norwalk CT (7/24/22) You can see this talk and others on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/c/UnityCenterNorwalk Last week's message from Rev. Shawn Hey U-nity, Living From the Super-consciousness “Make Decisions Based on Love and Wisdom” So many of our decisions are based on fear rather than Love or True Wisdom. We decide what we decide to keep from losing rather than because we already have everything. Decide now that you already have everything Good. Decide now that all beings already have everything Good. In these decisions there is no reason to “get even” or punish. There is no reason to steal or lie. There is every reason to be honest without being unkind. There is every reason to behave generously.

Make a donation to Unity Center of Norwalk "The Mental Cure" Rev. Shawn Moninger @ Unity Center of Norwalk CT (5/08/22) You can see this talk and others on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/c/UnityCenterNorwalk Last week's message from Rev. Shawn Hey U-nity, Living From the Super-consciousness “Make Decisions Based on Love and Wisdom” So many of our decisions are based on fear rather than Love or True Wisdom. We decide what we decide to keep from losing rather than because we already have everything. Decide now that you already have everything Good. Decide now that all beings already have everything Good. In these decisions there is no reason to “get even” or punish. There is no reason to steal or lie. There is every reason to be honest without being unkind. There is every reason to behave generously. There is every reason to look further than behaviors for our judgments. In your decisions this week, the large ones and the smallish ones, look at why you are leaning towards the decision you are making. Does it glorify Spirit within you. Does it enhance your sense of joy? Will it make someone else's life better? Decide with God and then pay attention. Here's to GOOD Decisions, Rev. Shawn

Everyday when I leave my gym, Marc Zalmanoff sends everyone out personally by saying to each of us, "Make Good Choices." That's the name of his book and podcast. By the way, you should check them both out. The reason Marc says this is because he knows we all suffer from decision fatique. From the moment we wake up in the morning, we're having to decide if we'll go to the bathroom, drink a glass of water, and the decision train doesn't stop until we go to sleep. As the day progresses, we experience decision-fatique. When we're tired from making decisions, we make poor choices. Fast food Watching TV instead of working Slacking on our health regimen Being lazy in our relationships The list goes on. But here's what I know..........

Education leaders, school business officials and practitioners continue to confront a full plate of difficult and time-sensitive decisions. How can we reflect on and improve practices and approaches for making those decisions to better serve students? In this episode, host Jason Willis and special guest Alex Jacobson from WestEd explore how good decisions in our school systems that lead to successful outcomes for all students are in part contingent on the ways in which people make those decisions. As part of this exploration, we'll look through the frame of what's known as System 1 and System 2 thinking – and discuss how education leaders can begin to apply some of what the research tells us to strengthen approaches to decision making, both individually and organizationally.ABOUT OUR GUESTAlex Jacobson is a Senior Research Associate with the Comprehensive School Assistance Program at WestEd. In this role, he serves on research projects related to education finance, strategic resource allocation, and cost modeling. Alex also provides collaborative, research-based capacity building to education practitioners, including direct organizational improvement assistance and facilitating stakeholder engagements. He also supports state education agencies across the U.S. through Regional Comprehensive Centers at WestEd. Prior to joining WestEd, Alex served as a researcher and technical assistance provider for the American Institutes for Research (AIR). He has a Masters of Public Policy from Georgetown University. RESOURCESJason and Alex refer to some key studies in this episode:Estimating the Costs Associated with Reaching Student Achievement Expectations for Kansas Public Education Students: A Cost Function Approach: This adequacy cost study examines the structure of the Kansas school finance formula as well as estimates the potential costs associated with reaching student achievement expectations for K-12 students in Kansas.Individual differences in reasoning: Implications for the rationality debate? In a series of experiments involving most of the classic tasks in the heuristics and biases literature, authors Keith E. Stanovich and Richard F. West examine the implications of individual differences in performance and introduce the concepts of System 1 and System 2 processing.ABOUT OUR HOSTJason Willis serves as the Director of Strategic Resource Planning and Implementation for WestEd, where he oversees and guides the agency's school finance, governance, and accountability efforts.
