January 1 marked the 160th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, a major step in a process of world historical importance, the abolition of slavery in the United States. Yet nowadays some historians argue that the proclamation was illegal, unconstitutional, or without important consequences for the enslaved. Others contend that the antislavery amendment that followed in 1865 was a betrayal of Black Americans, because it allowed for their "re-enslavement" in prisons. In this episode, historian James Oakes reminds us of the real meaning of Lincoln's proclamation, as it was part of a decades-long effort to rid the U.S. of human chattel slavery and fulfill the promise of our founding documents.
Hour 3: John Hines was in for Jason. He talked with Laura about an "itchy" story she's working on. Plus, more schools are moving to a 4-day week. Good idea? And finally political analyst Amy Koch talked about the Star Tribune's top 5 political stories of 2022.

Original aire date: S1 E29 Kevin Oakes, CEO i4CP DEC 1, 2022.I4cp does more HR research than any other research firm on the planet. After decades of research one thing is consistent: there is a direct correlation between companies that have a CHRO who reports to the CEO and high performance. Those that don't, are low performers. In this highlight, I cover some relatively new insights from a 2017 report by the National Association of Corporate Directors and other developments that will have a big impact on culture and leadership in the next 5-10 years.

One of the keys to happiness is reducing your stress. Professional stress coach, Andrew Oakes, teaches us the correlation between stress and happiness. Andrew explains that the higher your current stress, the harder it is to feel happy. And, when you are feeling relaxed and carefree, it's so much easier to feel happy. In this episode, Andrew joins Matt O'Neill to discuss how to think of stress as a game you get to play. Once you start to learn the game mechanics, you can begin to equip yourself with the necessary tools to navigate it. You can conquer stress in a fun, rewarding way. Here are some power takeaways from today's conversation: Learn what creates stress. Acknowledge little discomforts in your life and deal with them. Have the discipline to take on big mountains. Stress is a game you have to play. Record and reframe. [02:16] The Happiness and Stress Scale: On a scale of 1 to 10, how happy are you? From that same scale, how stressed are you? Happiness and stress are inversely correlated. Once stress compounds, it starts to move solely in that one direction. Often, what we do is assign all our problems to big mountains in our life. But in reality, what maxes out our capacity are the discomforts that then create stress. [15:00] The Natural Flow of Dopamine: Our body only has a certain capacity for taking on discomforts. We're hardwired for survival. The brain rewards us with feel-good feelings—dopamine—upon removing that discomfort. It's the same process when you urinate after holding your bladder for some time. However, the brain can't really tell the difference between a small and big discomfort. [19:32] Stress Management Toolbox: Having a hammer—anger or frustration—as your standard equipment in your toolbox only leads to more stress. Andrew has come up with re-tools to re-tool your toolbox: Record: Use cheat sheets, journals, organizers, etc. “5P's” means “Proper planning prevents poor performance”. Reframe: Reframe how you see things to stop the stressor from coming in as a discomfort. Practicing gratitude changes the way you see life. The tools you will put in your toolbox are going to be unique for you. Notable quotes: [27:15] “Stress plus time equals wisdom.” [27:17] — Andrew [27:35] “It's not the stressor that causes the stress, it's your reaction to the stressor. If you accept the stressor, you can be surrounded by stressors and not be stressed.” [27:46] — Andrew [30:15] "A setback is a setup for a comeback."
