"Know you're GonNa love it just as much as I, can she? Okay I could not be more excited to be introducing Laura Anderson to the show welcome Laura. Hello so good to be here. We're just going to have the best most interesting conversation I know it I am a fan. I love your work. I love your instagram. Thing it all. You're so welcome. US about you how you arrived to this work and what you're studying and what your purposes here in within this sphere. Yeah well I arrived to the instagram world via kind of the platform of INSTA-. Therapist which is kind of thing that's taken off in the last probably year or so I, am a licensed marriage and family therapists, but call myself a licensed psychotherapist, because most people are like Ooh, marriage and family that means you see couples and kids, and I don't. I actually don't like seeing couples or kids. Or family is. Not that I'm against those things I just I don't like that much energy in my office so it when I say therapists like Oh, physical therapists massage therapists no I. Call Myself a psychotherapist, which is just a psychological therapist. And so I specialize in complex trauma, but within complex trauma I work almost exclusively with domestic violence, sexual assault and religious trauma mostly because all three of those are part of my own back story and my journey through that in, so I I see clients currently online exclusively because of everything that we're going through right now. but I. recently also started a the religious. Religious Trauma Institute wit with another colleague and our focus is on looking at the trauma and or abuse that is caused from religious systems. We've been developing different vocabulary and hopefully research down the road in terms of helping people understand that religion actually can cause quite a bit of harm and subsequently trauma, which maybe we can get into what the differences there if you want to. unfought through that that there's a difference. Lena but A. Distinction so. A lot of people correlate. If I've been in a harmful or abusive situation relationship system that automatically means I'm going to have trauma and well. They're very closely linked. It doesn't automatically one lead to the other. traumas very subjective again we can get into that later and what that actually looks like in our body but because of all the research that's coming out which is right where we need to be and it's it's good for people to understand those differences as well as how that can live inside their body, because then it can allow for the healing to happen in a way. That feels really meaningful, ineffective and being able to proceed with life in a way that. Is kind of living in this space of healing. So, that's part of the work I. DO I'm also in school to get. My Ph D. I'm currently writing my dissertation. full-time and my research is on the experience of living in a healing body after sexual trauma, and that also includes sexual trauma from religious messaging when we talk about like abstinence, culture, virginity, culture parody culture. Those messages that can really live inside your body just like other sexual trauma can, so it's been this really interesting road. I'm hoping to be done by the end of this calendar year and then move on to other things. Who knows what those are? All my God I love. This is just life changing for people. To you privately like what we're experiencing in our relationships becomes very illuminating through someone else story, but. INC RELIGIOUS TRAUMA WE'RE SO brainwashed in conditioned to adore religion to give it reverence that it never earned doesn't deserve in my opinion, and so I think religious trauma is a little bit more obscured. You hear these phrases like Catholic guilt more just different things in there almost so trite that we can't get to the heart of the matter..

"Guest is Laura Anderson. She's a therapist specializing in trauma including religious trauma. She is a PhD candidate and the CO founder of the Religious Trauma Institute now. This is a very long episode already, so I won't take so much of your time. I so appreciate you being here wherever you are sitting. If you are an active believer in your religion, thank you for being here with open hearts. Hearts and opening years. If you have been harmed by religion like me, thank you so much forgetting something out of this episode feeling resonance feeling. Seen feeling heard witnessed understood. If you're someone who is not in neither of those camps, thank you so much for being here to understand this very real phenomenon, that is very difficult to personally discuss and acknowledge for the realness that it. It's very very real, but also you know that. Is As always very difficult for me? Between my family, different people are still active believers, and it's also in our culture. Religion is so has so much unchecked power, and is so revered, and the narratives are so triggering, because we give it something in my opinion, it didn't earn, but it just demanded, and and really is part of the trauma is how much you're not supposed to be talking about it and. I've mentioned this several times. How harmful this is to me personally to feel like okay well. You're twenty nine years old. He left the church, but if you could just leave it alone that it'd be great, and what is that saying? To people. It saying. It's a continuation of the trauma. Stay small for love. Fit In this box for love. Do This for love. Behave this way for love, and it is not right, and an a trope that is very common within mormonism that I am guessing is in others. You can leave the church, but you can't leave it alone no, it will never leave us alone. I was born into it I. Do not get to just leave it and say goodbye when my whole family is a member, and there are events like temple, marriages and baptisms that I cannot separate myself from. I'm angry at the tithing I'm angry at the things that I discussed in this interview so I don't like seeing it. Continue to abuse more people I am angry when I know the last time check I wrote out for seven thousand dollars, and the church just comes out with just one fund alone. They have horrid hundred thirty billion dollars. So you know someone needs to. To speak truth to power to that, frankly, because if believers are unable to hold their religion accountable, who will you know? These are all the kinds of questions and difficult challenging topics and more that we're going to explore within this episode and I hope that wherever you land on the spectrum. This is of interest in that you will learn something about religion, religious trauma, yourself and many other things that these topics can be applied to you know in life in general, because I think we're tapping into some really universal themes while talking this various specific topic in any case, I loved this interview so much with Laura. She is so fun and funny. We are to have a lot of laughs. So I. Hope you laugh along with us if you would. And this is why this is also important to me. I usually say it at the end, maybe might not make it to the end especially, if the interview just ends, you don't listen to the out Tro, but I always thank you for listening and I. Always think you for leaving a review and a rating in a subscription passing it on with the friend and let me tell you why when you have chosen of very triggering. Set of topics you have basically just stuck. Your needle tapped it right into the vein. You know of something people really care about, and that's polarizing, and this podcast does not necessarily re deserve five stars, but it is on its way to being a Five-star podcasts, and where we could be in two years for me so exciting and yet reviews that are left today. Were reflective of where this podcast is. Actually at they'll, they'll go forward in the years to come. When I hope, it will be a five star podcast that said being an advocate here, tiktok anywhere else leaving comments instagram your setting yourself up, especially as a woman for misogynistic or other trolls who go I don't like you I. Don't like what you're saying. Where can I hurt you and the two one starve? ratings that I do have were actually born of that. I was on a group for podcast movement, which is a group of over thirty thousand members and. Someone came on and said that they got a one star. Review their first, because there was a trio of three men that the episode that they had released was misogynistic, and they basically came to podcast movements group to get some validation that it wasn't and there was some people going well was getting pushed back and I was very outspoken on that thread about the episode because it was. Talk Szekely and disgustingly misogynistic, and I knew I was Kinda Kit. retribution for this I. Did I left some comments? I got banned or a blocked by a few people. It turned so ugly and then I came back the next morning, and there were two one star ratings on my podcast. which I know was from this, and so this is why I'm so interested in eager to get some help, not only for the show to grow, but so that I don't always have to leave in fear that when someone's GonNa come leave me a one star, not for my podcast dating and listening to a podcast so That was that was not very fun to go through and I hope I never go through it again, but that is why I mentioned that at the end of the show and it's why. In line with this very polarizing topic, I'm going to mention it at the beginning of the show today. In any case I said I wasn't going to be long, and then now six minutes, and I apologize. Here is Laura enjoy this interview. It is so beautiful and wonderful, and I.

"I wanted then. Yeah and so. I kind of a- because of that really didn't have a lot of educational aspirations. I I was very intelligent and graduated at the top of my class and had a lot of scholarships for places to go to school but just For various reasons because I wasn't allowed to and also what I thought were my own personal reasons decided. No. It's not going to be necessary to get an education. If if all I'm going to do is be a wife and a mother so I went to a community college to pass the time and I ended up starting to work at the Church that I grew up in. I worked in the US Department. I is a volunteer and then was hired on as a ministry coordinator and then Unofficially director so I was doing the work of the director not being paid for it but also because I was a woman was not allowed to really actually hold that title And through a series of very abusive socially abusive religiously abusive circumstances ended up quitting my job there and I would say that was the beginning of my deconstruction There was a lot that went on that. I didn't didn't sit right with me but I wasn't able to really label it couldn't it couldn't totally understand what was going on. I just knew that it wasn't right but I also is not in a position to question anything in. I had a four year degree from a Christian college and so I was like I. I don't even have any skills to do anything. So after I quit my position at the Church I had actually hoped to move to Minneapolis which is in northern Minnesota when to move to the twin cities and was actually kinda stopped from moving. The pastors of the Church called all of the places that had been applying for jobs in schools and basically blacklisted. Me and said Oh my gosh yeah it was. It was really crazy figured out at the time I was like. Why did I not get into these schools or not? Get into get second and third interviews with these places and come to find out that they had contacted the places in yeah. Yeah that that I wasn't fit to work there for various reasons or fit to go to school so I was stuck in northern Minnesota and so I ended up taking a position at a Community College But gave me enough space away from like being really really heavy in the chart to be able to Realize they wanted to go back to school. Which is what got me looking at master's degree programs and I knew I wanted to do something with therapy. It was something that came very naturally to me. So I picked Liberty University to go to. You know really really solid choice. Actually I have nothing against the educational experience. I have there but it was actually through that that process that I really did. Start to deconstruct my faith Quite literally the first day of class there was something that one of the professors said and it just hit me in such a way where I understood that things that I had been taught there was maybe more to the story and so through that process. I I continued to start asking questions but knowing that I wasn't able to fully explore that until I would move out of the community There just wasn't Capacity to do that and so I waited until after I graduated from liberty and made a decision to move to Nashville Tennessee. Which is where I'm at right now and That is what allowed me the space to both deconstruct De Converts and figure out kind of who as a person and then also getting further into therapy with my own private practice and eventually specialising in complex drama with religious trauma. Being one of my specialties. Underneath that so that's the tip of the iceberg story. Yeah and I think just picking up on a couple of items from that. I mean to the things that that stood out like not having the vocabulary at the time when you're experiencing these things and also not having both of which are really really valuable necessary right and I'm just sort of processing this just individually let alone from a professional yeah it you know. It feels really cliche to say oh. We moved away from home. And that's where I started questioning my faith but in fact that's exactly what needed to happen. Even though when I moved from home I started going to his southern Baptist Church and got heavily involved in the worship team and and those are the things. There was enough departure from the familiarity and the lifestyle of everything. I had grown up in that. At least I was able to start asking questions and interestingly enough I was In a relationship at the time that was actually quite abusive but at that very beginning stage he allowed me space to ask questions that nobody had ever let me ask before they would say you're not allowed to ask questions or you're not all alleged. Think about those things. That's dangerous that sinful in and as much as there's a lot of bad stuff that happened in that relationship. I will always be so thankful for that brief period of time where those questions were allowed and that really starts to open my eyes to be able to see that. I think that the things that I've grown up with are not necessarily the things that are are completely true. Like I was told. Yeah thank you Laurin for for sharing that bit about Your Life Brian. How did that part of your your journey start for you? Yeah so Similar to Laura Story I I actually do have an early childhood memory of not being in a Christian family because my father had backslid in when I was born right before before it was born then when about three or four he committed his life to Christ and my mom had never been part of the church and so this was a big shift in our family so I remember a day when we had. Tv in the house. So that was like Yeah an early memory. And then after that it was it was all church and so I guess I come from a long line of Church. Splints and splinters within the Conservative Holiness Movement My Grandmother My dad's mom left the The free methodist when they began to allow members to wear wedding rings and jewelry was forbidden. And not okay and so The left that and then My kind of experience in church was within the allegheny Wesleyan Methodist Methodist Church Yeah then also spent some time with the Pilgrim Holiness missionary went to one year. Bible College at Penn View Bible Institute which is a small Bible College in Pennsylvania. Wesleyan college or is that affiliated. So Yeah Yeah. So it's part of the God's Missionary Church But Yacht Conservative holiness. And I think what these groups had in common for folks who aren't as familiar with these small splinter groups Is that there. Was this in a second blessing where they claim that you know you'd have the second work of grace subsequent to salvation where you died to self in the sinful nature near sanctified and you became holy than so there was just a really strong emphasis on kind of out doing each other in terms of Indiana. I went to Indiana Wesleyan. So get your doctorate you all to be a bit too liberal for us you know wearing you know. I wasn't permitted to wear a short sleeve shirts as a kid. You know. Women had to wear their hair up not cut their hair where dresses So yeah it was an interesting kind of mix of Wesleyan theology about with very very strict moral codes. I guess is what they were trying to achieve. And so yes so I I went to You Know Christian School k through twelve and made it. Through one year Bible College it started to kind of unravel for me Between High School I think the thing that was probably most formative and Kind of colored. My experience with inside religion was After high school I just didn't think I could do college. Because you know you go very small Christian school and you feel unprepared and so it's kind of foundering a bit. My family at that time moved from Ohio to central Pennsylvania and I I met this really charismatic pastor of a very small church it was going to change the world and he said all the right things to engage a kind of a bit aimless teenager and and so I was really taken in by what he was saying and what he was going to do and so then actually I That was before I went to college but I started to travel the world with this person. went to China the Philippines Honduras and just doing various always smuggle bibles into China because that was a very scary thing to do and Looking back it silly because you just put bibles in your suitcase customs but But it was like it's very you know Courageous thing to do and Looking back now it. It's it's really obvious to me that I was being groomed by this person and Found out later that several young men were exploited by him throughout his ministry. Well and so so. Yeah that that really Made me question. Think about the no the role of religion in my life. After one year Bible College I started to ask questions and doubts through that experience I started going to Penn state part time just like one class this semester evenings and I met some nonbelievers in. They weren't the scary in moral wicked humans that I thought they would be an ranks so then the question Like what's what's going on here If a church has lied to me about this you know what else are. They withholding from me and honestly I think one of the last straw for me was In a protest literature class as I was beginning to kind of confront how my religious and political beliefs were harming my fellow classmates who were most of whom were from marginalized groups and I came to understand that I could Really double down beliefs in maintain my religious beliefs. Were could be easy compassionate human that I wanted to be in the world and But I couldn't do both and so That really Was a crossroads for me and unfortunately in my experience compassion. One out but yeah. That's kind of the journey that I that I've been on From there there was several years after that where I was. You know finally coming to a place where I was. Okay I'm not being part of the church And then a move really gave me the space to begin to process my own experience without the added pressure of a local community and so Yeah I think that really gave me the space to explore who I wanted to be as well and did either of you try other expressions of Christianity might either more progressive ones are more mainline. Ones like having had so many of these conversations. It seems like it's very very individual choice but some people have a very clean sort of act clean but at a very decisive break and some people have other things shift. Or what have you into a different type of religiosity or connection to a different type of their faith of origin so to speak. Did either of you have any of that sort of experience for me? Personally I I credit the fundamentalism that I grew up in For my kind of inability at that point who transitioned to a progressive form of Christianity. I went to a few different churches. I tried a few things out But I grew up believing that if you know where Progressive Christian you might as well as you know. You're all going to hang right. Yeah so and so I think in some ways that made it difficult for me to explore in an often wonder what might experience would have been like. There was more gradual transition and and I was able to find a form of Christianity that that allowed me to be the compassionate person I wanted to. For instance You know how long I would have maintained my faith. I mean there are some big questions that I think probably would have gone unanswered in which would still end up where I'm at today But I think that the process would have been a bit more attractive if I had not grown up in such a rigid black and white way of viewing Christianity right. And what about you? It's an interesting question and something. Actually I've been thinking about quite frequently lately I'm in school to get my PhD. And I'm writing my dissertation currently and so one of the things that I'm doing is reviewing my old journals from the last several years As they are part of my data I think what I what I thought was happening is not what was actually happening. Thought that I had a pretty clean break and as I've read my journals As like oh no. They're actually was quite a long period of time where I was really trying to make. Things fits into piece things together into a very progressive liberal view of God but I do remember very specific moment that I came to and I like it to being in a relationship with a domestically violent partner. Where this this moment comes and you go. Oh my gosh. I have tried and tried and tried and tried all of these times. And you've never shown up for me and you've never changed and you're never going to and now I'm done and and there was that moment that happened to me and I I work with a lot of intimate partner..

"I remember there was a point where I was struggling with working him. Being motivated and every day would be in my car on the way to work going. I Love My job and I'm great at what I do this over and over over and over again. It's amazing how it starts to shift you isn't it. I agree completely. Yeah you know one of the things the as I hear about about your story and I get to know you more and more the I think he's absolutely phenomenal. Is your ability to connect people and build this incredible network now. That doesn't come easy to everybody. So how do you actually go about that. Or how do you advise others as you. Yes yeah it's interesting. How do you advise others? It's something I always get surprised. Even now you've asked me but yes I'm asked that all all the time and when people say Laura Your network is amazing you know. I almost feel uncomfortable with that because I I find it almost cheapens relationships that I have because it's not it's never been for me about building networks even though we talk about the importance of networks right so would it comes comes back to. Is this concept of opting in and you'll hear I use that a lot that concept of often and I love people genuinely sincerely I love people. I love learning from people. I love delivering outcomes. I advise again be true to yourself and understand your audience understand the outcome that they want want help them to be successful but just do it with authenticity and passion and you know some people might have a greater affinity with people. Oh than others you know. Some people are preferred to be quiet into themselves others are extroverts and versus introverts and. I don't know what I am. Actually 'cause I I'm I'm very private in an of myself like I love my personal time and I love my privacy but I also don't mind anyone asking me anything so I'm happy to be transparent and share that and I think perhaps that's what creates that environment of Safety Maslow's triangle safety and trust first. And that's probably what's led to my global network and it's also the volume of work done and the velocity with which I'm done it so sixty years is a long time to be around you know and I've worked really hard and probably that work life balance adage as well. I don't know what that means. I I believe my life is my life and so my network is my network. They're my friends and so I don't necessarily draw a line between personal friendships ships and people. I do business with. I just have amazing people in my life and I really believe that and that's kind of how I run my life Nia. It's it's it's really interesting the way that you think about it though because it comes from a very generous place it sounds to me in our experience that you alight agree Greta. Is that the way that you are focused on outcomes. It's not your outcome. It's actually the other person's outcome and you're always curious areas and looking for connections. I'm wiser you can connect to you know and what you know which I think is again. It's a mindset and maybe that's part of the reason that you have such incredibly pather relationships yeah maybe it is is unique in some way to me not unique but you know. Is it a special attribute. Maybe I don't know to me I just it's kind of how I am. I'd love to transition because you have a number number of chairman roles and wrecked arose but particularly it seems fascinating viewpoint on stops and entrepreneurialism. What are your views on what it takes aches to succeed as an entrepreneur given the perspective? You've got internationally I think you know it starts with a vision in a belief a belief in in something greater than who you you are and wanting to really contribute to make a difference at starts with that second thing it starts with the ability to back yourself without a doubt but that in doing that you know people talk about bootstrapping so that means you give it everything you have all your capital all your time all your passions and and so you you wanna see that grit in that commitment before you invest I think is an investor best. What I look for is how much people are willing to opt-in and really back themselves? And that's really key we're Catholic. It's full-on commitment right. It doesn't the harder I work. The luckier I get the other. Things are obviously the ability to communicate effectively so so to be able to understand. What is your value proposition? Is that something that has a market or there's emerging trends that they'll be a new newmarket especially in today's Day and age as an entrepreneur. Are you able to touch people's not just their head but their heart. Are you able to elicit the emotions that take them on the journey with you because we the people down in setting up a startup yep sometimes underestimating their own skills you know they they have to sometimes be able to in the olden days we called it delegation. Yeah but they have to be able to understand what is their true true true core capability and where air can they supplement that with people who have skills greater than their skills and not be afraid to let go. I think that's courage yet. The founder's syndrome isn't it yeah yeah interesting. From startups and launch pads and back to the space theme. And you've talked about mission to Mars is is your purpose. So how literal is that various general. The do you see yourself going lutely absolutely. I Would Amsterdam tickets booked yet but I may be invited. Yeah I probably have to go orbital to go sub orbital and that'll probably be one of those first flights that they're doing electric lights exactly you know maybe say between the US and Australia to start creating a storyline and an imagination for the masses. That say except safe. Yeah well say it's possible now what's next always say maximize potential raise the bar a you subscribing to the view that it's absolutely essential that we earthlings established established an outpost on Mars as we're going to need a place to escape to or at least having parallel because of the earth sustainability is kind of running out is. Is that the sort of drive behind your purpose. Knows a great question. The driver isn't because of Earth's demise for me the driver is about about. How do we maximize the environment that we're within earth in all its forms but then also we have to continue to think? Broadly may maybe it is part of you know another planet another destination and other habitat and may be it may be required. What is that movie the hundred you know? Maybe we have have to do that in the future. But that's not what's driving me. What's driving me is about? What is the future water future food because even here on earth there are so many people who who are without and there's so many through the application of technologies and creative thinking and design thinking all the things? Is it going to be a successful entrepreneur right through all of those capabilities we can start solving some of the world's greatest problems now. I'm are in space exactly right. So why Mars so to me. Mars is part of the storyline in the journey and literally marsh. Absolutely you know. Maybe my DNA does. I'm not oh sure. Hopefully I'll be able to go stay intact by the time I'm invited that I find my ticket but I think Mars is. There is potential. Obviously we know that. Did you know to establish a community Mars. But there's also moons of Jupiter and other places and who knows what else will be possible in the future so it's kind of an analogy for the day. She I love that definitely analogy for the audacious so if we just cost your mind back now if you could give advice to your thirty year old self what do you. I think that would be go for it. You know in every way with purity of heart with a purpose for your life. Don't hold back. Don't stop us now definitely. Don't hold back. It sounds to me like you've done that. I have but I have so much more I want to do. And we'll do. Maybe you in closing what I'd love to do. Is I have my big birthday party. This year and a theme is forever young and I believe very strongly in this and nets nets to always have your potential outweigh your experience. So if you really reflect on Nash and I believed in that my whole life the more experience experience you gain the more potential you have but to maximize that potential. You have to be healthy right so you have to be well within yourself. Physically Mentally Salihi emotionally side from that. It's amazing it's amazing. What we can do amazing what we can contribute and again the collective imagined the synergy that's GonNa come from the movement that you're facilitating incubating you know? Women are fifty percent of the population so date. Yeah so comprehensive workforce participation everyone. Everyone has to opt in. We have to embrace all forms of diversity and I wish you guys all the best. It's amazing such an honour. Well thank you Laura so much. It's I've been an absolute joy talking to hearing about your journey. We can't wait to see the potential that you bring to the world in the future and just just before we go. I'm sure our listeners. Would maybe like to know a little bit more about you will get in contact with you. How would they do that? I have probably three. He weighs every once in a while. I'm not a big social media user I do some posts on instagram. So Laura Anderson Global I do. Who is some tweets Laura Anderson? Gl is my twitter account. And then I have a website called Laura Anderson global that was developed with my niece. It's not one hundred percent current but it tells you who I am and what I think and you can see there's themes there and I linked through to organizations and people that I really love and respect and I also share different things that are part of my journey now starting to tie together some videos and and other things wonderful so we'll make sure we put those links onto the episode page on our website. Greeley it just leaves me to say again. Thank you so much. It's been so so wonderful talking to Claire Greta. You guys are amazing thank you. I love dot conversation with Laura didn't you. I'm certainly did not really enjoyed the the even though she's so ridiculously accomplished that she still struggles as with some of the same insecurities that many of us face absolutely.

So it's very exciting fantastic so then you. You met your husband times to come to Australia I did. I didn't come to Australia because of him in the first place. Yeah so I was here. I was had a place in Hong Kong and Repulse Bay and place in Milton. Keynes outside of London so I did little to the world. I had a pretty fabulous lifestyle. You know so I was thirty three years old and just doing this nice little figure eights by left New Zealand and I almost moved there before And takes us well it really. Yeah Yeah and I you know. A variety of things led to my ending up in Australia but one of the projects I was working on was with Telekom the time so I had a team working on optimizing the spare parts that support telecommunications nations in Australia so they did that through Ericsson with telecom when they were going through privatization of the telecommunication industry here. So I've kind of travel through Australia once every eight weeks and then through that I gave a talk. There was The first Master's program in logistics was at arm. Mit so they knew about me. I guess and they asked if I'd speak at the first graduating class in logistics management in Australia so first masters awesome logistics. So I came in. I spoke at that. The class had two components to one. Was Coles Myer So. It was the largest retailer in Australia so they were half of the class. The the other half was department of Defense so that point in time I gave my talk and someone said would you come back and help. KPMG had written a report report on technology's impact on defense logistics. So they said would you come back and do an independent review of that report. It was interesting I thought about it and I thought Oh should I and I happened. Sitting next to my husband very go little happenstance here but on a plane flight between Melbourne and Hobart Tasmania and this was three days before I was leaving the country and I'm not impulsive but it just seems so right and so kind of looked around and I thought Why why not and so? I came back for six weeks which became six months. which now has become twenty-eight years? That's incredible what a story so I love to Segue. I'd love to take you back to gains systems and there you are. You know. This sounds still very male dominated industry. What do you think a relatively young woman charting the course for this business? What do you think one or two of the key lessons would have been fearing to my success awesome? That sounds like that you learn in actually being there because there must have been some really w t F moments like. What do I fix or how? How do I get these people to listen to me? Yeah I'm a big believer in planning and focusing on outcomes. So what did I learn. So what I during that. It gains era but it transcends into today in my life both personally and professionally is I always try and understand the outcome and then the the four different kinds of buyers so in order to make something happen I just said what outcome do we want now. WHO's the economic buyer right? WHO's the person who has to sign off on on the financial investment required? Then who are the user buyers the people will be impacted by whatever decision needs to be made and then the technical buyers those those are the ones who can derail it right just by saying no you know either. It doesn't fit our technology platform or doesn't fit our culture. Whatever it might be and again I was always thinking about how to optimize around those constraints via the fourth buyers the coach and that coach ideally is someone? Good good good thing. The coach ideally is someone who's one of those buyers ideally the economic buyer. But it could be any of them so I would always identify curate curate that group of people and try and understand and and it was through open dialogue and communication and I found the more prepared. You were the more you presold. So I'd make sure I would touch base with people and you know phone interviews whatever it took before I got to the meeting. So it's almost curing the outcome before you got everyone in the same room and then again people got to know you that trusted you so. It's at trust agenda. Do you have any tips for young women who might feel. They're struggling ogling to be taken seriously around the table particularly because then maybe more waymo men around that table than women and they may be younger. Do you have any tips to how they can earn that trust more effectively. Yeah interesting earned the trust. It'd be more effective and be heard. Yeah exactly so earned the trust on one hand. What does that mean right? So you're there but be more effective. Yes and and for me that more effective I think is believe in yourself be prepared without a doubt out and back yourself through competence. You know and make sure if you're prepared. If you know your stuff don't doubt yourself I love that you know the adage. What would you do if you weren't afraid? And I find whenever I get the Nichols are a bit too loud and too deep I try and say what am I really afraid love and I'll step back just for a minute and pause and say It's really not that bad is it. And then I can walk through any door now. I do that and let Sam giving a speech showroom going into really important meeting I usually. This is a bit of a funny thing. I'll go into the ladies room because usually it's a male dominated environment arment so I can be by myself like good. That's the Nice thing about ladies rooms and I'll just go in and I do I'll center myself and I just I visualize this the outcome so I'd recommend to listeners. That what they do is they again. You can hear I keep using the word outcome but you. Yeah you visualize what outcome do you want from a meeting or from an engagement or Y- from whatever initiative you're working on and you keep that front of mind and then you understand Dan what your role is and that and you really believe it and you know you don't doubt yourself when you back yourself and then when you go into that tactical engagement you make sure that you're sure you understand what's the worst thing that can happen and you just let go of those little niggles you know and you just go into a meeting as the individual who's extremely competent incapable and you let go of men women you let go of Blonde Brunette you let go of white black. It doesn't matter it Muslim Christian Jewish whatever it might be you let go of any stereotypes and you just go in. Is this human being whose incredibly capable and you just deliver on the outcome. I imagine that you see quite a lot of young people. Working in your capacity for example as chair of launch vehicle which is the government organisation organization to encourage entrepreneurialism and innovation in this state. What do you observe that? You wish. Only young women could do a little a little bit more of x or be a little bit more. Why what would you say you know is common advice that you find yourself giving or wanting to give to young women you observed today and back yourself self and have fun? It's really as simple as that. You know if you go at something with passion and you believe in yourself but you're having fun on the journey I mean. Isn't that what life's about and work with amazing people who inspire you but know that you have to bring a variety of people with you on that journey so again some of the things we talked about earlier. It's all about that journey. And how do you. You can only move as fast as the Weakest Link so always understand your your audience and make sure that you're clear on the outcome but also on the audiences capability to move as quick as you might want to move but yeah I I just find as women and sometimes we apologized too much and I know I fall into that category A lot. Sometimes I think Do Do I deserve it. The impostor syndrome. We've all heard before without a doubt it's alive and well in me almost every day and you just start thinking God let it go just let it county it go. I do my little meditations. I try and practice what I've said here on the program and take a deep breath and then you know I guess. The thing that that I do visualizes I visualized the end outcome but with every betty together on the same team. And if it's a speech everyone's smiling and satisfied with coutcome and that kind of drives me forward. Yeah a lot of it sounds to me. I kits mindset. Yeah without a doubt mindset. It's a visualization you can hear I'm really rely on that a lot and do that. Little head space meditation every day and I find. It's really nice centering for me and because for me there's values user such a fundamental part of my life so I believe strongly and few believe in what you're doing and it's aligned with your value system then you now everything else just follows so what advice for someone who speaking about myself full disclosure here content to worry too much and probably if I think about in hindsight on-site probably frittered and waste time worrying versus being in the moment having fun you know what's your advice to someone who can worry too much now. Isn't it true. Oh I think I do too even though I care about security and all those things. Sorry to interrupt you but now greed and it's that Maslow's triangle Angle let go of what we fearful. What would you do if you weren't afraid in back to that? Ask yourself that question all the time and and do we waste time time worrying. Yes I I know I do and got just Laura let it go let it go and so it's that self talk and I think we do need to work on that self talk and when I've gone through challenging times I try and work on my fitness so I walk most mornings and I try. I'll go and I say say these little mantras and I don't know if it's of interest but you know what what's your mantra walk along. I always start out with some depress and I. I just start art every day in every way. I'm getting fitter and stronger you know and I say that over and over and over and as I'm doing this little funny our movements and people on the street or probably are what is she. Do I do that and then I just say I love my life so those are the two things it sounds really simple but they empower me and inspire me and and then come back and I usually walk the my ten thousand steps so I have my pedometer and I'm ready to start the day and yeah my mind's reset into to a really good space and that's what I do. I think those mantras are just so important..

Welcome to office is now amazing. Hello Greta hello clear. It's so great to have you here. Thank you and thank you for hosting us in your beautiful home here in Melbourne Australia. Oh I love the name of this program. Don't stop. It's all about the power of momentum but anyway thank you for having me. I'd love to kick off and as a way of helping listeners. Stand a little bit about you. How would would you describe the different hats or rose that you have today? 'cause it seems you have an amazingly diverse menu of things that you do know probably three key things you know one is. I'm a mother and a family member of friends. So it's personal aspect to my life so there's a lot of elements that go with that. The second is is what I do locally so I try and do what I can to give back to the community. So that's where different boards that I'm on whether it's Epworth. Healthcare so hospital system to launch thick so developing the entrepreneurial ecosystem to major events which is kind of global trade and investment. So that's what I do on the local level level but that then sky hooks to kind of that global agenda so I also do a lot on the global stage whether it's in the creative sector so the world conference conference for the creative economy through the UN or different things that I'm doing now again around the space program and what that means on both the supply and demand side and you had to summarize your passions because it's such a diverse range even there. What are your your true passions passions really simpler? I call it my mission. The Mars it's about creating sustainable ecosystems. So I'm very focused on the future of so what it means is for me. It's the future of water. The Future of energy the future food the future of textiles and the wearable environment and what it takes to get people to Mars and if we can stretch our way of thinking to say what does it mean to create sustainable ecosystems therefore what kind of transformation must happen here locally and globally on earth to enable that to happen happen to me. That's the future of industries that's a future of sectors and that is what inspires me. That's so fascinating. I love that big picture. So thinking and convoys sort of love being in that space so I can relate to that where did that come from. What was the root of you? Know your big thinking and your desire desire to make the impact on the world. That's an really interesting question. If I try and go back to the root of that I think you know I talk so often about my father's impact on me and my life and he was always a why not person. I was the eldest of four and he always said that Laurie you know. What are you gonNa be when you grow up? You'RE GONNA present United States. You're going to be an astronaut. You know and it was always anything's possible and I love that way of thinking so I'd probably say maybe that was one of the first scenes that was planted in my mind and my psyche and it helped me think broadly and think that anything is possible. And so maybe that's where it started and then over time I think I listen I try and learn and try and imagine and even though I'm a mathematician Titian I think I have a creative mindset and that's I think probably how I weaved together my diverse portfolio. So you know for me. It's probably it's rude is is in an interest in learning and interested in exploring an interest in innovating. Yeah no I can hear that through everything that you do but going back to your childhood altered where did you grow up. I grew up in this beautiful town called Naperville Illinois in the US and the US yes thank you. It was kind of this middle class pass hard working environment of people who had great aspirations for their children and their children's children. My family was the same way and so they moved there and I grew up and we basically created the community together. So when you were a kid what did you want to do with your life or it's interesting. I always wanted to be an astronaut. There's no question about that. And I purposely wanted to find the cure for cancer because my grandfather went through a really challenging time. So what did you she go and do after school. I had a scholarship to medical school but then over the course of the I just inducting myself into that. I got heavily heavily heavily involved in technology. I always said okay. I'll go back to Caltech is where I was heading nuclear medicine and I'll go into research search but right now I wanNA understand tech a bit more and I was immersing myself with what I call big brains. You know people who really think differently and I I had this wonderful opportunity to work with John. Young and Hewlett Packard. Were you aware at that time. Just how transformative take was going to become in all of our lives and society and the way we worked no idea new tech was no one knew what the valley was back. Then it was. Just you know Cupertino and Menlo Park and you know San Francisco and San Jose and so not really but what I love about it. What I loved lumped about it was that why not thinking that industry sector and it was about constant transformation and it was around the time went centralized computer systems systems went to decentralized there was constant innovation so you were never bored and I always had a passion for learning and travel early in my career? I ended up. You know. I was in China deepen China's nineteen eighty-four. You know way before Westerns really did a lot of business there so many funny stories about on and you know so went into Asia early on Japan negotiated huge contracts but you know I had to be culturally sensitive incentive but I was young. I was a woman but I was there. Structuring all these big contracts like with the Tachi and others but I knew when to exit the room you know the contracts were signed and how did unite. It's quite difficult. I imagine the early days of experience they did research. You know I asked questions Sion's I wasn't too precious about my role in it. You know I was focused on the outcome versus just myself and being an advocate for myself. So we've heard that before I'm one of our guests. Based in Latin America moderator had earthy. She says that sometimes even though she of the company Sheila her team do the negotiation because they're men and she can tell that the other party is not going to engage with her as well. They're not doing the I.. Contacting her deputies these so she will happily do that. If it's the best outcome for the business it sounds like there were times that has happened to. You is definitely subscribe to that now. That doesn't mean that. That behavior is acceptable optimal. But it's focusing on outcomes and then through your program. How amazing and the work that you guys do? It's incredible that we're we're working on the transformation but we also don't want to break the links you know to bring everyone with us on that journey so you know I think if you're able to lead by example. Oh by driving outcomes and focus on those outcomes and being inclusive but never letting go of the behavioral changes that need to happen then I think you know the world will be a better place and we'll be more effective in our agenda. I'm becomes a women's advocate. More the older I get the further. Go on in life. I'm really never thought of myself itself a woman or just a person. I'm just Laura but as gone in my career and I don't know if it's the country I'm living in I don't know what it might be I I I find that now there without a doubt as an unconscious bias which plays out in so many ways for example a bank that I worked with. Whenever I'd call my banker to ask for information or alone they would call my husband and let him know that I asked for that? It was amazing. So frustrating amazing. Yeah and not telling me they were doing that and that was just their process whenever he called them. They'd never call me and ask me. It was amazing so it's so subtle things and they didn't even realize they were doing it. was that recent very the recent. Yeah so very interesting actually. So that's one example and I think that unconscious bias plays out in so many ways we hear about it in a I. Artificial intelligence and the way computer systems are designed now in the rules base. Absolutely and that's why girls who code. I think this whole stem agenda as you know as passionate as well and making sure that women are at the table. They're coding their OP Teen Dan. Because otherwise the autonomous systems will be driven by exactly coders who are men. And it's a different way of thinking so I think the more we can have an all inclusive society but have more women opt in on Coding Engineering Science Mathematics and then how that then translates into to the new world order of big data you know looking at again analytical systems absolutely we could be more aligned podcast exists exactly we do not want a single segment of society and at the moment it's predominantly white men riding the rules in the code that will determine all these autonomous onuma systems. That's not going to be good for anybody not absolutely now. I just want to rewind bit because we've got to HP. Yeah I. I went and I worked on a project with Ross Perot and pro systems at the time that he was merging. EDS with General Motors. And he had to. It's not make a profit for three years right so he invested time and money in entity so I worked with Ross for about a year and a half off on that and during that time. That's where I met Steve Jobs that's when they invested in and I was just one of the team members but in next which became Pixar so always abe. I was at the table and I was listening. I was in all the meetings like you know. Super deep on the inside and I learned so much at that point in time and and I helped helped my father who had a business and it was a product called gains which stands for general adaptive inventory system so I helped helped him commercialize it you know. He was a purist engineer and he didn't really understand the front end gooey interfaces and marketing and so I worked worked with him on that and from that my entity was built and launched and developed and it was called gain system southwest at the time and what it was is is and I had it for ten years and two parts to the business tactical global supply chain automation was one side of the business. The other side was the operationalizing strategy. And those are my specialties. If you will leading transformation so how'd that for ten years and then you know around the time when I moved Telstra evolved my operationalizing strategy into a more local context here in Australia..
