Decisions, decisions!

Who wouldn’t want to learn from experts? That’s what I get to do every week on Your Life, Unlimited on CJOB and through the magic of podcasting even if you miss our live show, you can listen in here…

Kristin Arnold, author of Boring to Bravo and Extraordinary Teams joined us today to share some wisdom on Decision Making.  Her 4 step process includes Address the issue, Analyzing the problem or opportunity, Answering in a grand and non-judgemental way and Action – creating a plan and following up on your decisions.

What Were You Thinking? 5 Ways to Jumpstart Your Team’s Critical Thinking Skills from Kristin Arnold

I loved her thought that you don’t have to be the only one to take action, who else can you bring onto you team that can share the actioning with you?

Other ideas we talked about where the overconfidence bias (make space for other’s ideas and insights) and the confirmation bias (who’s going to poke holes in your idea, play the devil’s advocate and challenge the idea).

Kristin Arnold does some spontaneous coaching with us today!


Dr. Rachel Holden aka Rachel Sommer, the world funniest optometrist also joined us and she shared how taking one big risk, even though it scared the beegeebees out of her, changed her life. It’s a great and inspiring story, you can listen to the whole show here….
