What Is NATO?
"What is NATO? NATO is the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. NATO was formed post World War II, and it was formed with the idea of trying to hedge against the Soviet Union. Now there are some good reasons for that in the Soviet Union was an evil empire in more ways than one. Albeit, I don't think we're quite honest with some of our relationship with the Soviet Union. We did partner with the Soviet Union to defeat the Nazis. After that there was this mad dash of who will control Europe and NATO was formed. NATO has 30 member countries. These countries, Albania, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia Lithuania, Luxembourg, Montenegro, the Netherlands, North Macedonia, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, turkey, which I never quite understood. United Kingdom and the United States. These are 30 independent member countries. And there is what is called article 6. The article 5 article 6 of NATO, which is the mutual defense clause of NATO, which is an attack on one, is an attack on all.

"So if there is going to be a time where perhaps the hybrid box might get knocked about a bit. That could be the telling. There could be some issues there, but I obviously touch wood that I hope there isn't. One of the big incidents that you want to talk about from rally Croatia that we haven't covered off yet. Yeah, I guess we'll start with a lot of it's all about and I feel sorry for him because he had a really good rally. He'd never been to crystal before, so this was completely new to him. And he drove really, really well. And up until that moment, which was on stage 9, he was sitting in 5th position, had been very smart about it because the conditions remember were extremely challenging wet, foggy, to be honest, I don't know how they do it. It's genuinely impossible. I think Craig breen actually said, these are the worst conditions I've ever faced. You could only see ten meters in front of you. And when you're going through rows like that with trees, either side of stuff at speed, that's quite frightening, but although he actually said, I quite enjoyed it, which is just a classic rally driver response. Anyways, this is the worst conditions ever. But yeah, I quite enjoyed it. But anyway, go back to Oliver. He had a big lose coming into a left hander, just got a little bit caught out when the over a crest and the car had gone a bit light. And is spun the car around quite fast and gone reverse into a grass bank. The crew absolutely fine, they got out of the car, fine, and then suddenly the car ignited the exhaust on the car had caught caught the rear of the car a light. So it's nothing to do with the hybrid or anything like that. It was just a classic case of hot exhaust. Catching a car on fire eventually did get put out, but Oliver was like, yeah, it was quite hard watching the car. Up in flames and there's nothing you can do about it until the fire truck arrives is quite hard to watch, so they didn't rejoin. So that was the end of their rally. Moving on, I guess, then to perhaps the most bizarre accident was actually in full mode on stage three on Friday where he ended up in someone's garden, which is not a sentence or ever written before. What happened was he caught out, got caught out on a wet patch just that complained the rear of the car sort of spun round and he fired through a hedge. And then landed in a sort of farmer's garden and the car pulled up just avoiding a statue of a concrete duck. Which was just you sitting there at the media room and I'm watching this and I'm like, is this real? Yeah, it's real. So yeah, the cars pulled up completely, yeah, big damage to it. Luckily, the crew okay, we can laugh about it, but it would have been a pretty scary incident and the crew were okay. But yet a car chassis damage to they couldn't repair it. So that was the end of his rally, but again massive disappointment because that's three retirements in a row now and you just you do have to wonder what is going to happen there because he really needs a result, but I don't know what how you get over some other that's quite tough, tough character building sort of situation he's in at the moment. But yeah, so it was just to sort of end that story the owner of the property that the car ended up in. Some sort of local farmer who actually understand found it all quite hilarious, really. But an offer, I think he offered them some cheese to have before they went back. As you do, Assad Assad incident, we can make light of it, but it's actually for the team that prepare that car. It's a lot of work that goes in there that's gone up quite quickly and ended quite quickly. So yeah, you feel for the team and the driver because it's just one of those ones. Thierry actually had a moment at the same corner but saved it. But Adrian didn't. And that's interesting. So it's just one of those ones like a bit of experience, but again, if there's a river of water run across the road, I'm not quite sure how you meant to react to that without it's just one of those ones. It's quite difficult. And let's talk about neuville. Where do you start with Thierry? He had another event or rally. It just seems as though everything that could possibly happen to him happened to him. It just seemed like this happens quite a lot, which is quite an interesting one, but I guess we'll start off with the fact that he was on the pace and on Friday, second fastest to rob from pere. He was, in fact, the closest until what talent did on the final day he was the closest to Robin pair at any point, I think he was 12 seconds, 12 and a half seconds behind after stage four. So he was genuinely on Callie's pace. But then, as I said, stage forward, all unraveled for him because the alternate filed on his I 20. And it meant that the car stopped on a road section outside the service park and pull Thierry and Martin Vida ger the co driver had to push the car by hand. 800 meters to get it into the service park on a road. I was actually in the media zone when they came in and we could hear the noise and kerfuffle..

Because everyone's on the beach all day and i set it up in the square mind square at night and i actually had an official interpreter. And we zoomed in survey. I would've loved to been resumed in. It was four thirty in the morning and australia. And if i'd like put lipstick on because they sent photos later of launch. And i had this huge crane in the middle of this square with my face on it.

Lucky they weren't on the big screen and people all ever ustralia my siblings my my nephews and my cousins on the mainland in croatia zoomed in and it was it was a big thing it they the book is like even i followed the library Facebook page and yesterday. I did a book reading club in the nursing. Home at blotto and the people in their remember my mother. So you know this is. This isn't so long ago and it's a story with two sides isn't it. That's the story of the people who left but also of the people who stayed. And i guess your book and your visit is a way to to bring those two sides together again exactly exactly you. You mentioned that when your mother and father had this proxy wedding and your mom was still on bladder won. The all and you'll father sent over some beautiful material. Make the wedding dress. What ended up happening to that twice while she left it there for her younger sister. Because at that stage her older sister was married. A lot of there was no material. A lot of people made wedding dresses from parachutes things like that. That left over from the war so she left for her sister to use system married. I think one or two years later and then a couple of years ago on one of my trips over my anti actually told me that the wedding dress was worn by twenty four women in the village idea. They must've been the same shape because it was quite a fitted dress. This beautiful australian fabric. It's just a beautiful story. Thank you so much for telling us on conversations.

"Well they all tried to marry me off because especially one of my cousin said you need to marry a man from blatko. Keep the bloodline pure and went back with my daughter's years later they tried to marry them off. You can take their advice. I've got a wonderful wonderful husband. Who's half arush. But having said that i would have been lovely to have one hundred percent pure croatian children but now i'm happy with michael. It's good for the the genetic pool to be a bit diverse. I get to visit her home again in croatia. Yes yes so. She sadly got diagnosed with cancer. In ninety ninety four. She was a young she was spout sixty two. She was always positive she. You would never know she was unwell. She was just this wonderful woman who had exist for life and so we said to her. Look why don't we send you back in. You can see your family again search. We sent her back one more time and it was nineteen ninety-five and it was the homeland war. Another war had erupted. Yugoslavia was basically falling apart. Everyone was wanting independence in. Croatia was wondering independence and the croatian war went on for quite a while. Went on for about five. Years was a nasty nasty war and we basically thought it was over us. That's why we thought it was safe for them to god but it wasn't. She landed in split and stayed with my uncle. I he lived on the mainland. And she'd only there about two or three days when the final push for independence happened. It was called operation storm. One of my cousins call. Jackets lives on the island rang. My uncle and said look this fighting happening again. I don't think it cypher. Her to stay on the mainland. Let's get over to the island where it's safer. And so they all bundled into a car and and my mother told me that they pulled aside in the tanks rumbling past and she she was horrified. She said actually. I'm getting goosebumps talking about it. She said she left because of more and she was worried at what would happen again and here it was. Her country was at war again. And all these young men that were soldiers but were part of this army defending their country trying to get independent so we actually ended up pulling her home.

When she'd get letters from her her family she would often run run to the toilet because she be crying because it was all too much for her she would have been very homesick. But you know my mother was such a positive woman. And she had a great husband and she loved her family and she loved She really actually was very grateful for what australia gave her the freedom the opportunities she she was never regretful. When did you first go to this family island. When i was twenty two i graduated from unique work two year and saved up enough money and myself and another friend put our backpacks on and off.

Debbie debbie dunk in your little short shorts. You'll look like a hobo. Yeah carry a backpack. Yeah shame so. I actually had to buy a backpack that could convert into a suitcase. Which was not what i wanted to do. And i had to pack good close high heels and a nice outfit which was which i tossed afterwards and before actually before we even got the island. We were stayed in broth nick and that was quite interesting. 'cause we come up from the greek islands and my friend and i we went to the. We're staying in some little pantheon and we went to one of their little dancing clubs and my friend. Lynn turned around and said to me she goes. Oh my gosh they all look like you and and it is. We have got a look. Dalmatian men and women were tall. We've got high cheekbones and it was the sense of. Oh my gosh.

Trials like bet very pretty green houses and cobbled. And and i've got high heels. I'm lucky i didn't sprain. An ankle fracture an ankle. And i'm struggling with this very heavy backpack week and there was no. My mother knew through letters i.

"So deborah wayne new mom finally arrived in cassowaries valley outside of mosman. She would have had so much to adapt to so much to learn. How did she go with the language. I mean she was spot.

He was here since he was five. And my aunt who was born here and so they wanted to learn english quickly so they would do terrible things like teller rude words and make a go into the butcher shop asking for route thing. It says she learned pretty quickly how to speak english. Did you think of the tropics. Was that a a kind of frightening environment to suddenly land in the middle of from the adriatic sea. Oh yes and as my auntie said. They gave her weight to settle in and then she had to help with the chores. So one of the chores was they had horses and one of the jobs yet to get up three o'clock in the morning to feed the horses and so mom had to do that. So you you get chop chop which is the tops of the sugar cane in a bucket and you walk down the creek at the back of our house and up to where the stables were and and you'd have to swing around all the kind toads were hopping everywhere and you'd have to feed the horses at three o'clock in the morning and that was one particular job on e.

"She said there were five of them from the village coming over his proxy brides so it probably was not something she would have aspired to but i think she saw that as an opportunity. You mom had sisters who i guess. Were also considering whether that throw their hats in the ring in response to this proposal from a cane farmer in north queensland. What did your mom sisters think about this letter. Proposing marriage headed shova. Her words. Her exact words were i will sti- i am not bright enough. I will stay poor. But i will stay here. Younger sisters words was that she not be brave enough to make such a steep. As you mentioned. Deborah you'll mom's village was of course court opping world war two. What happened on her. All in nineteen forty one. The world war two is in full force. Yugoslavia surrended at that stage. There was six states pulled called yugoslavia. As i had a king and the king fled to england and the part of yugoslavia was given to germany. Germany took it and the lower part was given to easily and the italians invited her island and were there for about two years so the island was under occupation. And what did that mean for. The people's daily lives having italians in charge. Well mum never really talked a lot about it. I've interviewed quite a lot of people but like they took over houses obviously good houses. My parents house wasn't good enough so my mother's house lucky for them. They took their food. There was no food. The school stayed open while the italians were occupying the village but the teachers had to learn how to speak. Italian and the lessons were conducted in italian And a lot of the young people ran off to the hills and joined the partisan forces which was under general tito and that was the communist forces but di basically were attacking the italians and trying to sabotage the italians because they were occupying their all are fighting but there were like gorillas or rebels. And i i didn't. They would hide in the hills and coming attack if there was a solitary italian soldier or something like that and a lot of young people joined the partisans and my mom's sister eldest sister was one of them. You mom was only a child. Was she involved in in any of those actions. Yes absolutely and i. She never told us this. This is information. I've received from going back to croatia and talking to my cousins and they children as children they were. They were burnt suspected so they would twist messages in their hair and they would walk up to the fields to weigh..

"Which is their main industry and the wine industry collapsed so there was a lot of unemployment so at that stage a lot of people from my parents. Village emigrated like one day. A boat left carrying a thousand people and this is a town that at one stage had ten thousand and then went to five. I think it's under three thousand. So a lot of people left mainly for ustralia in america and some lift to work like my mother's father went to broken hill and worked and came back but a lot left to stay and my grandfather on my father's side. He came over. I cut kind made money enough money to bring out his wife and his children. Then it was for a bit a life. I guess and so you you. Dad grew up in in on this kind farm in north queensland and i have to ask debra on behalf of all the eligible girls mosman. Why did he want to go back from croatia. Now that's a really interesting question. And you think growing up knowing. Our parents had a proxy marriage. One of us would have asked them and for the life of us. We never really. We never said dad. Why did you do that. And i'm so sad we didn't. It was really hard to research and find out. Why did that do that. And i ask my anti his sister. Aunty mary and she's ninety and lives in mosman and she said she doesn't really know because he was good looking he was sporty. He was a lovely fellow he he was had lots of girlfriends and she said in her words he could have married anyone but he wanted someone from the old town so few years ago. I said to my mother's sister. Who was over then. She speaks knowing leash. Why did my father look for a bride. And her answer was quite funny. I thought could. She said well according to what she heard that the most in girls just wanted to shop none of them would want to work on a farm and live on a farm. I would have known how hard it was to work on a farm. I guess yes and it was isolated and he thought like if he brought someone from the old country that would be satisfied to live on an isolated farm and also to work hard. I asked i interviewed one of our neighbors last year. Woman in error. It's who lived on the farm next door to us. And i said her. Did you ever work on the farm. And she said she wasn't. Croatian she was a strange said. No and i thought my mother was always at stripping cane and helping with the tractors. He got someone who was happy to help him on the farm and satisfied with this. This is my presumption feel and was this sort of marriage. Something that your mom had considered beforehand or would it have come as as something completely out of the blue for hoover's a young woman still a teenager. I don't think she would have considered it. I mean she loved her family. She loved her island but you have to think she lived as a child through world war two in an occupied village. She she you hunger. She knew hardship. And i think this was an opportunity. It wasn't there weren't a lot of women that did it. But they were a few from her village and she'd say the men.

It was mocked by war great risk to photographic studios and a shotgun especially for snakes. Mudan known as laddy left blotter as a child for australia. He grew up on a sugar cane farm in north queensland when he was twenty eight years old he wrote an urgent letter back to the old country saying he was looking for a bride. And this is where our story begins. I'm joined by maria and ladies daughter. Deborah gather niche. Who's written a book about her parents. Cold the goal who left. Hi deborah. Hi sarah how would reach the island in in the adriatic sea that a cane cutter in far north queensland was looking for a bride well i guess it would have been by mile. I think they would have written a letter back to the all country address to who just sort of the women of bladder wants to why we don't have the exact details because a lot of these people are passed on but from what i can get that. I think it was my father's father. The grandfather did out wrote to someone he knew in the village saying my son wants a wife. Do you know anyone. And it's a small village. Yeah everyone knows everyone else. So they i think the family that it went to the head daughters but one of them was. They thought might be good but she had had boyfriends or had. A boyfriend wasn't appropriate but she had a friend call. Maria who she thought would be perfect so the word got to maria that this man and australia wants a wife and what head your father and his family left the island in the first place in the nineteen twenties it was after world war one.

"Yes this year. I wrote and i just edited. It's called your first post. Cova trip should beat croatia. Okay and make the here. Why croatia because originally wrote it in early two thousand before. It was certain that they would open for this year. But i felt that they would because they did open to americans last year as well they are open to americans. They have low cova numbers but more than anything. Croatia is a destination where you can do everything. outside distance and me i'm i'm fully vaccinated and most people i know who are traveling. There would be fully vaccinated even with that. I feel like your first destination after the last year and a half we have. You need something. That's a little easier a little bit friendlier a little bit more low keyed like i'm not ready to hong kong and be packed like jeans and a can anywhere know. Our our troops are outside too. Yeah exactly croatia's a place where you do everything outside. Those two months. That i was in croatia. I think i ate indoors twice and one was because i was there during the annual dalmatia downpour. That happens once a year and is really intense. And that's it yeah. no. I think you're right that this year is a great year for well. We're seeing record numbers of people at national parks just doing road trips and things like that. It's not probably the best year to go to someplace where you're spending all the times in the museum's order downtown or certainly places. I have eaten inside once. Even though i've traveled doing the pandemic mostly locally and only recently now getting back on planes and it's going to be a while 'til comfortable doing indoor and the and the urban kind of destinations whether that's scientific or not it. It's certainly the case that a lot of people are going to feel much more comfortable eating out at piazza eating out in doing camping. Where doing sailing where something else. It's outdoors excellent. I'm so glad..

"So it's very salt of the earth very country very casual. That happens to be serving up some of the best red wine and some of the most spectacular beaches you've seen as well Interesting one thing that makes you laugh and say only in croatia. Only in croatia do people from dubrovnik. Stay way out of the city people in dubrovnik who live in the old city. Nobody actually lives in the old city during the summer months because they can make way too much money renting them out airbnb. Yes so it's kind of weird that it's the most beautiful city in the country and there's a mass exodus of locals every single year and that's not unrelated to my feeling that split us a city where you live in the city dubrovnik's city that you visit. Well i mean there are plenty all of my friends in dubrovnik. They don't live in the old city. There's plenty of city. That isn't the old city itself breaks up in the hills and all that interesting and if i had you summarize croatia in just three words three words are you gonna use beaches sunshine stone stone. Okay yeah there's a really famous whitestone that comes from branche an one of the other islands and they like to they really to show it off stone buildings. I think we're we're has at.

"Are we ready to get into some wrap up questions or are there other things that we should know before we go to croatia. I think that it already but definitely bring water shoes. You don't think you need them. But trust me as soon as you get onto your first pebble beach or should i say the first time that you crawl out of the ocean looking like sandra bullock at the end of gravity crash down to earth. I mean you're you're gonna wish that you had water shoes on you this time of year to go to croatia. You mentioned perfect. Summer destination yes. Croatia is such a summer destination. I think september is the sweet spot or perhaps even early october. If you're going to dubrovnik or the far south. I think that early october is the absolute best because you. It's still swimming weather for most people and it doesn't have the crowds at all. of course. september has fewer crowds than the main summer months to july and august are very very very busy. Once september starts the kids start going back to school and that gets rid of most of the family travelers. So i think that late september is really nice or possibly early october. If you are going to the far south june which was also lovely. We weren't doing as much swimming but the weather was great. There weren't as many cruise ships in port and things like that. Yeah may may june. They have similar weather to september and early october. But the main difference is the water isn't as warm right swimming's priority. You might want to aim a little later. But if swimming isn't a priority you might be really happy with may or june as well excellent and you talked a little bit about food. Are there any other food destinations. You want to mention or dishes you to order. Well there are a couple of places that i really recommend going to. There's a place in court. Shula called lola wine bar l. o. L. e..

Who come to just do a lot of drinking and all that so see split. Check it out towards. Stay two nights even if you want to. Don't make it the center of your trip. I have great memories of their. Remember as we're going down to dilute cliches palace running into one of the croatian men's singing groups that does a lot of acapella songs and we. I think my son actually bought their cd was just even though we didn't understand a word they were singing. It was just haunting beautiful music and they were just down by a declarations palace singing and there was a great ice cream shop as well. I don't remember the name of it in split so we had a good trip. We'll talk a little more about split and some of the coastal destinations in the last episode.

"Is that a lot of people underestimate just how steep. It is and a lot of areas like for example on another island branch. We stayed not too far from the town of bowl like ten. Minute walk from bullet. Didn't look far on the map for them. We realized it was basically a ten minute walk. Almost vertical and fell liquor about to climbing every night and a lot of the islands are like that you have to be conscious about how steep they are and if you want something that's less steep. I just recommend staying close to the water. Return me yet. Which is a very fabulous island. Miette is a nature island and it's To me at national park and you can stay there overnight. If you'd like. But i think it works very well as a day trip. You do it from dubrovnik if you wanted to. But i actually recommend doing it from coachella because it's closer and the boat drops you off on the side that is actually closer to court. Shula's where the national park is and all that and me. It is standing beautiful. They've got these dayglo saltwater lakes that you can swim in you can hike to the top of monte coach which is a mountain get incredible views all over the place. And it's just a wonderful nature island to explore. Do a little bit of biking do a little bit of swimming. You can rent a bike there if you'd like so that makes a very nice little day trip excellent. I have not been to me at all. You should go. i haven't been to the islands. Actually that's the reason why there is a lot to see croatia that we we're giving you a one week itinerary or one to two temporary. But you spend two months there and i'm imagining. You did not run out of things to see. Oh not entirely. I'm already planning how.

"Are we ready to move on from dubrovnik share. Let's talk about kortua okay. Now there are so many islands in croatian and people always want to know what is the best island in croatia. I think that coachella is one of the most solid options that you could possibly pick. It's has a lot of really really cool things to do and it's also pretty close by. It's not that far from dubrovnik. You can take a ferry right from dubrovnik. If you don't have a car and korchnoi is most famous for being the purported home of marco polo and i say perpet- because people don't really know for sure but it's something that the whole island is running with and really enjoying and we think of him as being venetian but a lot of this coast was ruled by venus. So that makes that makes sense and if you walk through a lot of towns not not to call but a lot of the other towns you can see the winged lions of saint mark that you would see an ebony shen city so this was apparently of an eastern city. Yes it was back in the day. Their empire extended pretty far mostly along the coast because they were traitors. And what are we going to do in korcula. Well kortua has some interesting wine varietals. That you can't find anywhere else in the world. My favorite is called gerke g. r. k. And sounds like a drink or something. Please try the girls and my favorite activity that i did in all of courtship maybe even all of croatia was going on a bike wind tour.

What are Frontier Markets?
"As i was doing the research. I was fascinated by the sheer size of frontier markets in terms of population. Two point two billion people. A third of the world's population yet the economic impact at this point is still small only about three and a half percent of the world's gross domestic product the monetary value of goods and services produced a third of the world's population produces less than five percent of economic output. This size of the stock market's even smaller frontier markets. Make up less than one percent of global stock market capitalization that's the size of the equity market as determined by the price of a particular company times the shares outstanding less than one percent. And there aren't even that many stocks there are three thousand stocks that comprise the msi all country world index which is both developed and emerging markets. There are fourteen hundred emerging market stocks yet in the mci frontiers market and xers only eighty one stocks the countries that comprise that in. And i'll just go through the list. Because i think it's helpful and instructive to know what's there is croatia estonia iceland lithuania kazakhstan romania serbia's slovenia other countries include kenya morocco. Area bahrain jordan oman bangladesh lanka vietnam the largest country within the index as measured by market capitalization or sizes vietnam. It comprises thirty percent of the frontier market index. Morocco is twelve percent. Iceland's eight percent. Kenya seven percent. Kazakhstan is seven percent in looking at ways to invest the primary. Etf i found for us based investors is the i shares mci frontier and select emerging market. Etf i'm not sure exactly when i shares renamed it but the largest wait in that. Etf is kuwait at nineteen percent. And as i mentioned kuwait was upgraded from my frontier market to an emerging market.

Global Sting Began by Creating Message Service for Crooks
"Also it was a sting on a global level. The FBI helped create a fake app that tricked hundreds of crooks. ABC is Alex Stone explains how they did it. Well, Kitty. I mean, what the FBI did here was really ingenious. And they decided, you know what if criminals globally are communicating on encrypted, secure messaging apps? Why not just create our own? And that's what the FBI did. They built their own app on devices that criminals would use. They deployed it globally. It got popular around the world and Australia was one of the countries that really a lot of people began using it Croatia and elsewhere and nobody using it knew that the FBI was able to see every message the criminals were sending to one another the entire time that It was the FBI's own app that they were using. Here's a big announcement today in San Diego. The amount of intelligence that we received was staggering from seizing drugs, guns and millions of dollars in multiple currencies. To addressing more than 150 threats to life more than 300. People were arrested in advance of the worldwide take down and then 500 more in the past two days, so 800 people that Suzanne Turner with the FBI and San Diego agents say in San Diego, they were the ones who orchestrated this whole plan, and they took down other encrypted platforms they indicted and then Arrested or got them indicted and arrested. Other platform folks that had criminals using their platforms so the criminals will be a vacuum and criminals would have to go to the FBI's platform, not knowing it was the FBI's platform. It was called an, um and the whole time criminal groups had no idea. The FBI was watching every message. 27 million messages were sent in 45 different languages. FBI received a copy of each and every message originating outside the United States that crossed our platform. Similar to a blind copy of an email

Her great grandparents to learn what they would have taught her about life. Jennifer makes sense of her family's adventures in her book called running away to home. She joins us right now from the iowa public radio studio in des moines to tell us what she and her family gained from living in croatia. And how it's changed them now that they're back in america jennifer. Thanks for being with us. Thank you so much for having me. So you took your family from iowa to croatia. Set up the story here. When did this happen. Why did you do it. How long you stay well. It was in two thousand eight when the economy was melting down here in america we were really feeling a lot of restlessness at the time. So we sort of collectively decided as a family to take a big risk. We decided to get rid of all of our sort of consumerist lifestyle stuff and we took our young family to the ancient croatian mountain village of my ancestors in it was. It was a pretty amazing. Right how long did you stay in. Croatia trump. We were in the country itself for about seven months. The majority of that in the village itself is your husband croatian. Also he's norwegian alsacien but he sort of adopted my ancestors for the time we were in the village. It was really like hitting the reset button for our family. They're in what way. Well jim and i have a fairly modest lifestyle here in the midwest but even a family like us sort of in our american culture tends to super size everything and we were just ready to kind of get away from the american buzz and we went back to the most basic way of living. We were living in a small pen sione in this very small village that felt like it was suspended in amber since my great grandparents left and it really gave us the time and space to connect as a family we wanted less business in our world and we thought there can be no better way of doing that than going to a place where there was really nothing going on We had heard a few things about mirka pie research and a scouting trip and indeed. It was sort of this quiet time outland. It felt like to us

How Being Yourself Makes You a Better Leader with author Minter Dial
"I want. say congrats on your latest book. You lead how being yourself makes you a better leader. What was the motivation for this book. So just like in the same idea. Be yourself how do you do that. And how much of you should you bring into work. We talk about authenticity transparency. But is it about being radically transparent. Radically empathic and radically you totally you. So that was the question. Mark ahead in my mind as i launched intas but actually i started writing this book in two thousand and fourteen and at the time i wanted to be like the book of my life like everything full out work personal and everything in between and it took me a long time to Stu and come up with this line which is hopefully to change the way we lead a not just in business but ourselves because in the end of the day. If there's is huge lack of engagement oversee the previously to books haven't exactly figure that out and then to understand how we can bring more of ourselves feel engaged fulfilled and up bullshitting ourselves at work. Which hopefully has knock on effective leading everybody else to want to be with you. Yeah i mean. Starting in two dozen fourteen. Roughly six years was their their moment where it accelerated for. You does seem like a long time. But i know other books. People have written not you but other people could take ten years fifteen years sometimes so. I'm just curious if there is an unlock moment for you. Well it's great. You know like those more academic papers need lottery such things like that. No this was the actually. The thing that happened here was sort of blocking moments Blocking tackle i had. I went off to croatia. At thirty thousand words. I was like all excited came back wife about it. I've really got a big slug of all of us. Had something happened. And i had actually three big loud bazooka moment blocking me or changing the course of my direction which included a call from the television station. Pbs saying hey mental. Your story so great. Let's put on television and clearly. That wasn't part of what i was thinking and and i'm busy doing something else. Meaning internet this actually takes preference so i then put on hold when off that one and then a friend of mine killed himself and that kind of took on another path and then so i've had these different things that have happened anyway. I would say that the walk. In kensington park with a friend of mine who had been published kogan page was the catalyst to getting contact with them and they said awesome. Great idea really. Love it and next thing you know. I had a publisher and that happened of course before the old pandemic started. We'll let's get into started down this path. And i stopped you apologised for the rabbit hole but i wanna to talk about what you mean by you lead. You talked about authenticity radically being yourself. Tell us a little bit more about what you mean by. You lied so i. I generally feel that everybody has leadership potential and but a lot of times. You sort of like won't take away the responsibility and this listen to orders. And i feel like if there's such disengagement at work something is not happening so the of initial premise. Is you lead you and you need to be master of you. Which essentially means at its heart getting to know who you are and what matters to you and so often we go through life. Allan where we're doing what we're supposed to do getting the title on the business card getting extrinsic ideas doing following in my father's footsteps or not as man whatever and we're not actually in touch with ourselves and this is a particular challenge when you're successful often mail. You just think that this is the thing and so the one. I'm trying to really griffin to is to be in check with who we are as an individual and then once we have that established we get rid of some of the chips in the shoulders. Were more cognizant when we're being emotional and irascible and disagreeable and and potentially more vulnerable and then we can definitely model a behavior that the rest of the team might follow through with got it and i mean those sound like great things to do like just a better know myself to be more aware of my own tics and talks. Yeah why is this important for leaders. Do you think well on one hand. My feeling is that leadership is still wonky. If not a terribly wrong and the other hand i think that is much as some people want to be authentic. It's they're not sure what they're being authentic about and why they're doing it so very quickly you can be put off the course you can be doing something because you think it's good to do because it's like there's the narrative being sustainable development is great. Let's do it but there's no real hook anchor back into who you are as we end up doing so many things because it's good to do. Oh that sounds like a really smart idea let's do that and by justifying rationalizing all these smart ideas. We actually ended up frustrating ourselves. Because we're going to not get to want to get too so i feel like the issue is. We've all been to university a lot of us or you know educated and were reading even if you haven't gone university it's fine but with intellectual curiosity we we kind of think we know ourselves because we have that arrogance may be pretension says i want of course i know myself. I'm fifty six allen. God dammit you crack question me on who i am but i think we have this sort of absolute ability gloss over the details. I'm an executive powerful. And i'm excited. I'm confident on curious. I'd fine but that kind of describes everybody at some level to sort of leggings generic concepts that you want to project but who are you deeply inside and if you're excited about sustainable development can you not attach it to something that's more relevant to you for example or hopefully i'll have one day grandkids. Well i'd like for them to live in an environment where okay well. That's at least a more personal hook as opposed to the intellectual size that it was going to help our customers think that we're better people.
Minter Dial talks about his new book "You Lead: How Being Yourself Makes You a Better Leader
"My first guest of the year and i'm so excited because he's also very good friend of mine is meant to dial into how i i a sam. How are you happy new year and my friend. Now minter is a successful author. Filmography speaker podcast. And he's also multi-linguistic. I've practiced that word several times. Because it's not easy for me to say minter. We're here today because you've got a fantastic. New book came out only yesterday. What's it called. What's it about name of the book. Thank you for having me on. Science is called you lead. How being yourself makes you a better leader. And it did. Indeed launched yesterday around the world except for north america which takes three more weeks Gotta do things differently and the books about leadership so the issue at some level is just another book on leadership but said the central premise is about leadership. Starting with how you lead yourself at home with your friends family and at work. 'cause real leadership has to start with leading yourself being ceo of your life. Why did you write this booklet. Where was the inspiration. What's trophies who write this so there's a little bit of a long answer on that one time. So just indulge me a second. I began writing this book in two thousand and fourteen and the premise was. It was going to be the book that i write. i like. We all say we have a book with us. This was going to be that book and such the thesis really was a wanted to talk about my life's learnings up until the age of fifty and naturally those learnings had to be both at work and out of work and so i. I started writing this book. I went off to croatia and thirty thousand words. And then all of a sudden bang big piece of news drops and i had to put the book aside and if you can imagine. I had that specific type of process where i went into the book. Big thing happens as in someone dies or her major event. And i keep on having to put the book. Aside in the interim i've done three other books and a documentary film and finally having heart official empathy out of the way. I said i got this went in. And i got the publisher. We got moving on. Its on on this leadership principle. And then i had it in my manuscript sam on the seventh of march seventh amounts twenty twenty twenty twenty which basically was a week before we all went down into lock dumb and god another big event because that was a pretty big event and they are. My gosh is not going to happen again. But fortunately i had. The team was on fellow. I got a chance to laron some pieces. That made it even more pertinent yet. Do i feel that. The concept of leadership needed to be dramatically addressed before the pandemic. And i'm delighted to feel that sort of satisfaction that the pandemic has revealed even more the need for new type of leadership in the future. And that's why. I wrote the book so you talk about a new type of leadership. What is this new type of leadership leading so unbalanced the real difference between any other type of leadership where we're also talking about performance and getting people everyone motivated. The real design here is to think about leadership being you and your personal and professional life so absolutely taking away. The wall between what usually is just where you have to go to work. You're a strictly professional here. I really am opening up the komo no to the idea of bringing your whole personality to work now. The challenge is just finding about how much of you do. You want to bring to work to provide that authentic sense of self and yet retain the privacy that is absolutely normal the intimate highly confidential elements of you that you don't need to have and the and the challenges inevitably is finding that cursor along the scale that allows you to be you yet. Keep some secret garden that we all have private more on the basis that we are now working from home here on a zoom cool with you. I can see part of your study going. Glimpse into your personal life just through this small portal view. The are half which of course if we were in an office together. I would never know that i would never know that. Was your talk box meat. And i'd never was on new shelf so all of those things that little snippets. Is that why you think we have to not be more authentic imelda to you. Personal public personas. Let's say that's the pandemic's version and there's another bigger piece to that. Which is that. Finally people are taking stock of mental health and generally whether it's in the army as or in business there's an element of bravado to the leadership. Suck it up. let's go get it. All done and fire up the team and yet seventy percent of employees systematically score themselves being disengaged from work so were now in a situation where when you see me in my home you might hear my kids. The cat might pop up on the desk. There's also behind the screen behind the mosque. Some realities that this pandemic has changed whether or not you have a personal issue with regards to someone being sick or dying. There's just a an overall menez that's out here and whereas before we Happens at home. Keep it at home. That's died on that selfish shit happening at work. actually now. my work is at home. I can't extract myself from that whether it's my tuck box or my surroundings but more importantly my personal wellbeing and whereas before we talk about efficiencies and effectiveness by can actually see my bed from where. I'm speaking the way you sleep absolutely has an impact on your productivity. So why aren't we at work creating environments where people sleep better for example having naps. Why is it that we just have to have the google pods. Just a few of those illuminated type of companies allowing for that whereas we should actually be training people where you're learning for development departments aren't just about how do you do a pl better. How do you make a product more efficient. But how do you sleep better because that energy that you gain. That's off the ball. I like to say. I use the in sports. We say on the ball where you're at work but off. The ball counts dramatically in any sport. How you play off the ball. And i think of time away from work as off the ball and that counts absolutely how you are as a person how you show up the energy you have and that sense of discretionary energy that you bring to work and that becomes a competitive advantage. I read the book why we sleep last summer. Brilliant book and change my productivity. I was dots. Bravado person up early three hour sleep for i sleep in i can do. I've been doing that since my army days. It's easy pa. And of course i then read the book about why we sleep in the house you need and then i read the book about kadian rhythms and wire naps quite useful in when we all pick women up.
