    Breaking Through Fear-Based Decision-Making

    in Legal

    There are short-sighted, ego-based, anxiety-driven decisions made by leaders in business, community-service, faith-based, and government sectors all too often. The adverse, long-term impacts of such decisions, seen all too often at micro and macro levels, have led to: operational ineffectiveness, business failures, and economic crises; military aggressions, wars, and genocide; irresponsible contribution to climate changes; and a variety of civil rights and human rights violations.


    It is generally presumed that the best decisions leaders need to make are rational decisions. However, the truth is many decisions that are touted as “rational” are often intellectually-framed emotional decisions that undercut leaders’ ability to achieve the needed results. To counter this tendency, leaders must be equipped with the emotional skills to make competent, courageous and compassionate decisions that maximize the best interests for the greatest number of stakeholders.

    Science of Decision Making - Quantum Physics of Beliefs

    in Self Help

    Science of Decision Making

    Radio Talk on August 23, 2014 at 8PM CDT

    Here is how Decisions were made in historical times: Herodotus (450BC) wrote in The Histories:

    "If an important decision is to be made [the Persians] discuss the question when they are drunk and the following day the master of the house... submits their decision for reconsideration when they are sober. If they still approve it, it is adopted; if not, it is abandoned. Conversely, any decision they make when they are sober is reconsidered afterwards when they are drunk."

    What a strange way to make decisions! Perhaps it is, but there are even stranger methods of human choice.

    Everyone makes decisions differently and is motivated or driven by different things. Being aware of and understanding these differences are really important to be successful. 

    There are three distinct styles of decision-making. Each of us can make decisions in all three ways, but we tend to develop a preference for one more than the other two. This preference becomes a subconscious force, affecting the decisions we make on a daily basis.

    Quieting the Mind leads to great decision making...with Kimberly Jonas

    in Lifestyle

    Quieting the Mind leads to great decision making...with Kimberly Jonas. 

    Kimberly Jonas is a self-employed spiritual coach and inspirational author. After being steeped in the corporate world for nearly 10 years as a project manager and art director, she left that world in 2002 to teach yoga, meditation and other mindful practices. Her corporate and spiritual worlds have been entwined ever since – she has owned a 30-employee spa and studio, has her own line of healing essential oils, and recently self-published three volumes of poetry. All while helping others to access their full potential through practices designed to quiet the mind and ignite inner wisdom.

    Quality Decisions Start with Quieting the Mind

    1. In all of your business ventures over the years, do you feel like you’ve always worked from the place of a quiet mind?

    2. We’re talking about quieting the mind as a source of good decision making. Can you speak a little bit about how poor decisions come from an “unquiet mind” so that we have a little more context?

    3. With your experience in corporate America complimented by running your own enterprise, how have you used "quieting the mind" to make the best decisions?

    With your experience in corporate America complimented by running your own enterprise, when do you feel that “quieting the mind” served you the most?

    4. Can you help me to debunk this idea that you have to meditate for hours in order to have a quiet mind? I think the idea can turn people off because it feels like you have to undertake a bunch of major, involved practices to cultivate a quiet mind.

    5. Do you believe it’s possible to get to a point where the mind is always quiet?

    6. Give an example of a decision you made that was not preceded by "quieting?" Moving to Colorado to work for a family owned business?

    WIOA: Smart Decision Making

    in Jobs

    Thursday, March 12  |  1:00 PM EST

    Much has been said about smart decision-making in the development and implementation of national, state, and local public policy.  But what does that mean for workforce boards as they move towards WIOA implementation?  Scott Johnson, CEO of Social Solutions, says that WIOA creates the 'perfect storm' -- a time of significant change that delivers an opportunity for boards to rethink how they are managing performance and measuring outcomes.  You are invited to join host Ron Painter as he interviews Johnson how higher impacts can be achieved if boards 1) eliminate duplication of efforts, thereby conserving resources;  2) redirect efforts to activities that deliver measurable results; and 3) change the frequency and intensity of how we collect data and evidence. Don't miss this this discussion of how workforce organizations can take steps now to begin managing to outcomes in the new age of WIOA.
