"You can track everything especially into like the first seven years of your childhood so from the womb into your childhood um so yeah it's a lot it's a lot and sessions can take very long because we have a lot of stuff in there and um so basically hypnotherapy just boom dives in directly into your your core beliefs um and there's also you can cut me off at any time if you know keep going i'm running around um but uh usually hypnotherapy at least the one i practice uses parts work which is a framework that was um created by robert schwartz i believe is the name so it's um the framework is internal family systems ifs and it supposes that that we have different parts of us that live within us within our subconscious mind within our energetic field that are different aspects of our personality and they desire different things and they want to achieve different things so for example if you have an issue with anxiety there's a part of you that really wants to end it because it feels really uncomfortable and it feels really unsafe but then there's another part of you that's sending you in a way the anxiety because it's creating safety apparent for yourself for example protecting you from a fear of rejection or fear of neglect or fear of abandonment so it sends this alarm system like okay run away from this don't get into this you might be judged don't get into this you might be criticized and usually somatically these parts feel really intensely in the body you're just like it feels like you're sweating for me at least like my cheeks get all crazy and my temperature rises and i sweat and my heart beats and you're just like it's basically um why you're getting triggered by certain circumstances in your life you mean like when you're under hypnosis and you become aware of these things you can actually talk to these all of these parts you can have like a conversation with all of them so you can when you're in a state of hypnosis what happens is you are speaking to your subconscious mind which is holding all of your values your beliefs your identities your memories your childhood memories your emotions your nervous system how your the functions of your nervous system everything is in the subconscious mind and with hypnosis you kind of get your conscious mind so like the chattering and the criticism and the judgment and the ego you get it to sort of shut down for a while so that's why you are more receptive to suggestions that that's why you're more receptive to feeling your emotions in a very safe way and in a way where you really ask the person okay what is this anxiety telling you like and then you can start playing with this part so like this part of me is just like really scared to release anxiety and this part of me is just sending me this anxiety because i have a lot of fear of rejection and where does this fear of rejection come from and no it's because my parents and they always had to be perfect and blah blah perfectionism and then you just deep dive into all of these like little nuggets and insights that the person is telling you it's a like a beautiful holistic mix of childhood issues that are living in real life in your body and that

"So again, it's not specific to the zoom rooms like we try to invent that technology appropriate audio and video around all of our solutions. In this particular case, what we're what we're trying to do is make sure that the people in the meeting room have that same advantage of being heard equally as the evolution of the personal space has taken that has taken priority in the past two and a half years because of the situation that we've had with remote work, right? So it's just making sure that we're elevating both experiences. So they're seamless and they're equal. Now, my understanding is that the poly studios zooms room systems powered by each P and the poly TC ten controller work together but actually you can use the TC ten on its own. Yes, the polythene controller is a brand new device that is included within our poly studio systems for small medium and large rooms. That was an innovative product and we're very excited that it's included in all of our new zoom rooms on windows. But it does have the flexibility flexibility of being a zoom rooms controller or a zoom room scheduling display. So it is available as a accessory separately. But if you buy a zoom room, that's what you will get as a zoom room control is a TC ten. But for us, it is really important to highlight that it is an accessory that you can buy separately and it serves dual purpose. Natalia, when we were talking about our podcast today, you said the word secret sauce. What's the secret sauce here? Yeah, you know, like I said, all of our, all of our technology is equipped with very advanced AI and machine learning. And as we continue to evolve our OS to make sure that we're continuing to pick up the insight of what are the pain points from our customers and trying to make sure that we're embedding technology into our AI that falls from those problems like speaker framing like people framing and making sure that all of those things are

"I love that the found at my work is all around led, made by dyslexics, led by dyslexics, and maybe in time we will turn that into neurodiverse neurodivergence. But we've all, I've always had a strong philosophy that from our board down, we have people that work with us that are dyslexic or neurodiverse on our board, they have to be, we have to have a mix of both. Absolutely. Absolutely. It has to be a conversation on both. And it's okay to have that identity. And, you know, you may hear people say, Oh, we're all a little, you know, we're all a little neurodivergent, or we're all, you know, and just think about, you know, the language that you're saying. You know, usually when I talk or I do a podcast, I'll get some feedback afterwards to say, Oh, my second cousin's nephew is dyslexic. Sometimes I'm a little sassy and my answer is great. And my hairdresser is gay. I love that. Which is, you know, I wonder, I'm happy to talk about this. And I'm happy you could recognize that, but it really does nothing to the cause unless we're taking action and getting the voices of. That is a wonderful way to wrap up the conversation. But my final question, which is totally different, is before, yeah, sorry, my brain just slowed down for a minute then, is what gets you up in the morning? I would say I've always been a family of servant leaders. My dad was a first responder in military. Scouting is part of my life. I'm a third generation scout and still a scout leader. And it's seeing the seeds that I've sown, you know, really grow. It's seeing the people that I've mentored now mentoring others. And it's in, it's in seeing, seeing that progress. I try to keep that attitude. It doesn't always, doesn't always happen. And I'm a big proponent of spoon theory. So I try to balance my spoons and practice self-care when I should, or actually more call it like organized procrastination than anything. But there's so much work to do. And that can see that it's not a, why should we do this? It's a matter of how. Well, thank you so much. I've just learned so much from talking to you today. So I'm just so grateful that we were able to connect on LinkedIn. Thank you. Thank you for giving up your time right before the holiday season. And I hope you have a safe and wonderful holiday.

"Do you think that will help support the needs of neuro-diverse people in the workplace, now that COVID's come and we've had these different opportunities to work? I would hope so. You know, I think COVID has made everybody have to think about working differently, being more personally resilient, having to, you know, rally together and take care of each other, and think about the skill, and think about hiring not because, like, not in spite of somebody's being dyslexic, but because they are dyslexic. Listing it as a skill. I was, you know, on a job interview, and somebody had asked, you know, how are you multitasking? And I'm like, I'm neurodivergent, right? This is my wheelhouse. I thrive in a multitasking, constantly changing environment, because that's my life. And I think the answer was a little, they were just like, I've never heard that answer before. And I'm like, you know, this is what it is. I think we have to really work on this environment and this culture change. And I've said it, you know, kind of a key phrase that I use in that you can't sow seeds and sand. So, you know, as we do these targeted hirings, as we get in more apprenticeships and internships, and IBM through our new collar, NEW program, we no longer even require advanced degrees, because a lot of neurodivergence may drop out of school, or, you know, the unemployment rate and underemployment rate, you know, PhD in machine learning, working at a coffee shop. Why? Because they don't smile the right way during an interview, or they shake your hand like a weird dead fish. And what does that really have to do with anything? But it's about building that environment. When you put a new seed in, it can put down roots, and that's where you get your higher loyalty. But when you do that, when you're amending the soil and getting rid of the blockers, the rocks and sticks and adding manure in, then everyone could really blossom. I feel slightly emotional because I think, wow, it renews me with hope and makes me excited for the future of Australians that are neurodiverse. Because I think if we can, if organizations in Australia can look at the different models in the US, particularly your work, and, you know, I think it might help remove some of the fear they have. There's definitely a huge movement starting around employing people with autism, which is fantastic, and these specific programs to get people with autism in. There's a lot more TV programs in Australia around people with autism. And it's looking at how do we diversify that and grow it so that all of us are supported in the same way that the pilot for neurodivergent hiring, you know, was in Australia. And we do have a huge group there. Andrew Williams, Belinda Sheehan, all of us. And this is what's really beautiful about this project, that we have so many allies and so many people self-identifying. Every day we get more and more people to come out. We recently got our first endear in India to come out. We know they're all there. It's, you know, it's the same, you know, one in 50, one in 20, you know, and that we're out there. And, you know, breaking these stereotypes, like you said, you know, you see in social media, you see in the television programs, you know, the Sheldon Cooper of Big Bang, right? White, cisgender, male, really good in IT, kind of nerdy, kind of adorkable. But it could be a black trans Asian accountant, or it could be somebody in HR or an artist or a lawyer or an accountant. And to really, you know, embrace, embrace that difference. One interesting thought that I'll kind of have people or have you percolate on is that if we go back in time to the indigenous people of our countries, right, there were communities, you know, hunters and gatherers, they were in communities of 20 to 50 people. And usually there was one or two people in that community that saw the world a little differently. They knew which leaf could cure and which leaf could kill. They were able to read the signs of the season to know when the tribe should migrate. They had big thoughts. And they were revered for that. They were the shamans. They were the medicine people. And they weren't shamed for having, for being different. Their skill was embraced in the community. So what's interesting is that that same ratio that we see is that same one in 20, one in 50. So the neurodivergence were always on the planet. And now we have to come together to find our voice again. This has been such a positive, enlightening, educating conversation for myself. I've just loved every minute of talking with you today, Nat. And I'd love to have some more follow up questions. Is there anything you'd like to say to the neurodivergent community, or it could be employers or managers that are listening right now? I would just say, just start having the conversation. If you are neurodivergent, consider coming out, because you're going to help others. We've seen neurodivergence, you know, actually, you know, several that have been in the closet. And then they came out just to our safe space group. And then they started speaking, you know, their manager to get some success enablers or things to help them in their job. And now they're mentoring others. Now they're, you know, getting TEDx's or speaking at, you know, big conferences on this. So, you know, maybe just think to tell one person and see where you are. From a corporate standpoint, work to not be in sand, right? Build this environment, like where you can show your pronouns, where you're saying the word neurodiversity, where you're asking for questions, and ensure that the organizations that you're working with are neurodivergent led and have representation. I would say that's the biggest misstep is, you know, going to, you know, maybe an organization that says, you know, we're going to help you do this. And they don't have any neurodivergence on their board of directors or leadership, or they have that we can fix you, we can cure you, let's do, you know, genetic research to get rid of the gene, which can only lead to eugenics, but just start, start and have, have the hard conversations.

"And we partnered with Special Sterna to create a autism hiring friendly cohort. And we started that in Lansing, Michigan. And since then, we now have targeted neurodivergent hiring programs in 11 countries around the world. So that's one differentiator like to call out with our program is that we're global. And the other, which is really exciting, actually, too, I can't decide which is better. So two and 2.1 is that we are collaboratively managed by neurodivergence and neurotypicals. So our executive sponsor, Tony Horton, he's a VP, and he is openly dyslexic. And our head of PWD, PWDA, Diane Delaney, she is also neurodivergent and myself. So we're giving a voice to the actual programs. And while allies can be helpful, sometimes the well-intentioned ally, you know, may be harmful. But we do work very closely in synergy with our neurotypical allies, but we have to ensure representation. So we have an ERG. And we have what I'm really, really excited about and get a little emotional about, too, is that we've developed safe spaces for neurodivergence through virtual communities. So we have global Slack channels, one called Actually Autistic, one called Actually Neurodivergent. We have one for neurodivergent channel for all allies, all neurodivergence and all closeted neurodivergence who might be out in those safe space channels, but not out publicly. And the safe space channels, we actually call them task forces. The reason we call them task forces is not to have people think, oh, this is just the warm, fuzzy, oh, we're going to support each other, which is very important, right? Psychological safety is huge. You can ask for advice on your, you know, something happened with your manager or your partner at home and really be raw and honest and candid, which is so needed. You can have this community of peers to say, oh, this is what works for me. But it's not just that. This is a place where we have the community where we can rally, where we can say, what do we want to do for April? Or, hey, you know, with my liaison to benefits and HR, I can bring to that community and say, you know, IBM has been invited to partner with this organization. What do you think? Or this new benefits package. And we can get vetting from the community, which is huge, and to offer that safe space and that voice, which since it's safe space, people can be free to say yes or no, I don't like this or report in biases, whether it's, you know, in our tools, whatever it is to go through and no different than any other identity group. That representation is critical. If it was a woman's initiative, would the owners and main stakeholders be all men? No. Clearly. So if you're, you know, our motto is nothing about us without us. And we take that very, very seriously. How do you encourage other organizations? Like, that's amazing to have the Slack channels that create that psychological safety in the workplace. I mean, it's so important and it's And I think how do we encourage other workplaces to see the value in putting the time and effort in to set up those type of structures so that people feel safe and they feel like they're contributing. And you can't, from my research, people are so fearful of disclosing at the moment that, particularly in Australia, that then it's hard to build those safe spaces because people are just so scared to come out in the first place. So how do you support that within IBM? And then that broader question of how do you think? Yeah, I think there's one big blocker and that's imposter syndrome, where you have so many individuals, if you're not familiar with the term, you probably are, where people may have gone for that diagnosis and the doctor said, Oh, you're far too social or you just read slow. So it's that bias that we have in there, which is a whole separate piece. But how do you build culture and safe space for the neurodivergent community? I'm going to answer the question with another question, which I really hate when people do, but I'm going to do it anyway, which is how do you develop safe spaces for the black community, for the LGBT community, for any, you know, for the Pan Asian community? And it's the same answer, which is you have to start the conversations, you have to find allies, you have to build a culture where people are free to come out. It's kind of like showing your pronouns. If you're using the word neurodiversity, if you're talking about it, and then you have like we have an internal website with all of the resources and we have two or three gatekeepers. I'm one of them for the safe spaces to say, all you do is email me and say, I'm neurodivergent and I want it. And then when you get in, there's a whole honor system, like, you know, rules of what, you know, what is said here stays here unless you have permission. Obviously, if there's an issue like an H.R. issue that is reported, then I may take, you know, contact a person one on one and try to guide them through that to, you know, self-report as just as we would if anybody was, you know, in crisis or in any other thing. But it's just a start. And, you know, we only we we started with just, you know, 50 people in our ERG. And since then, we've had over 4,500 IBMers take our neurodiversity acceptance training and we've reached about 14,000 IBMers just in introducing the topic. So the big part of our program, we call it the three A's. And the first is awareness. So people need to be aware of the conversation, aware of It's a great place to start. It's like when you play the little board games as a kid, everybody started on the little box that said start. Or that's the start of your journey. But if you stay there, you fall into this trap that awareness can still breed discrimination. You can be aware that, say, a Muslim family moved on your street. I'm aware. And if you were not willing to take that next step, what are you doing? So we start with awareness. And we also understand from a cultural standpoint, whether you're in Japan or India or the US or Australia, there's also cultural stereotype or cultural biases that all tie into this, right? Because we're not just neurodivergent. We're So our next step after awareness is to focus on acceptance. And that's when people are being educated and then taking action. Asking questions and moving into that place, work on hiring, work on looking where there are And that's where you're trying to ensure the neurodivergence are being offered the same opportunities, whether a team leader or manager or a leadership position, or even asking their opinion, having them have a voice. And really moving through that. And we're trying to make changes along the way. So a few years ago, IBM for April, we celebrated autism over on this month like everybody else. And then we upped the game to autism acceptance month. And then we upped it again to neurodiversity acceptance month. We're still wordsmithing, but possibly may see other language coming in this April, like neurodiversity celebration month or pride. And the ND movement is really following the LGBT plus movement so much in which, you know, being a member of that LGBT plus community 30, 40, 50 years ago in the US, and obviously in different places, different countries, it was a medical diagnosis of gender dysphoria. And there were treatments and medicines and, you know, how to act normal. And now we've progressed, there's still work to do in that community. But from a corporate standpoint, it started grassroots, and then a couple of executive sponsors gotten in, and then working to work on middle management. And now you have corporations, you know, focusing on pronouns, and make building that safe space. And the neurodiversity movement is really following that far more than say, people with mobility impairments or the like. Wow, we've got so much to learn from overseas. And I just keep thinking about, we're just at the A. But I love the three awareness, acceptance and advancement, because I thought that the third A would be action. But you've included acceptance with action, which makes sense. No, it's such a good philosophy. And I see it in my research, and it's been hard to articulate. And that's really that's, that's what we're missing at the moment is that all three of them. But we're at a starting point of the awareness component of it. Thinking about neurodiversity as another chapter in your diversity story is, I think, when we're going to get that most progress, because we don't need a pity party, right, we don't just want this, oh, this is warm, fuzzy, this is corporate citizenship, this is something that is nice to do. The data is now proven to say, it's not a why you should do this, it's a matter of why not? Who doesn't like increased revenue and more loyal employees and more empathetic managers, and more candid feedback and more growth mindset, and skills. And all of these things can a company can access for very, very low cost, if not free in sometimes, it's a matter of being able to say, I work best here. And instead of asking that, you know, what accommodation Do you need to really change the language again, to just say, how can I help you succeed, and see where it goes. And maybe it's to help me succeed, I would rather sit in a quiet part of the office building, not by the elevator, or you know, where there's a lot of commotion, or I need noise cancelling headphones, or I would like to start my day 30 minutes later, so I'm not exhausted from the commute, and I could hit my desk with a full battery and then stay later in the day, or I work better at home, or, you know, I have adult parents that I need to tend to, or whatever it may be. And when you think about making things more neurodivergent friendly, you're just making things human friendly. And a lot of times the neurodivergence are kind of seen as the canary in the coal mine, that we're very, very sensitive these things, but it really can help everyone, kind of like the curb cuts we see on the sidewalk, right? They were meant for one thing, but can help people with strollers and carts. It's really around universal design principles, isn't it, that it's helpful for everyone, when you're able to work in those types of flexible environments, and when you feel safe to say, yeah, I do need, this will help me to be my best, and encouraging workplaces. How do you think we can start to make that shift, do you think, globally and in workplaces, to think more open-minded? And I think COVID has really helped in that sense around the, I mean, well, we were forced to work from home, which, you know, most employers would have had a pink fit about, I'm actually been a silver liner for many, for many working in maybe the smaller companies that had never embraced work from home, or never focusing on having honest conversations to say, this is what I need, my child has remote learning, and I can work two hours, and then I need to take a break, and everybody is being far more empathetic. So COVID's actually been a silver liner, or silver lining to a lot of people and a lot of companies to say, wow, my people can be productive, either working from home or working on a split shift, and, you know, seeing things in a different light.

"So do you find and I'm excited to talk about what IBM is doing. But do you find that by putting, and this is in the workplace, too, if we look at IBM as an example, do you find that by putting us all together, and when I say us, the neuro diverse community, that it waters down the individual needs of the person or the individual needs of the difference or difficulty, because we do have separate, you know, people with autism, they have skills differences, and we have writing difficulties or reading difficulties? Absolutely. Um, I don't think so. I think it goes to that sense of, of equity. You know, everybody in, you know, the PW people with disabilities also have different, you know, different flavors, you know, from vision impaired to hearing impaired to mobility issues, they're all different as well. And they're all clumped under the PWD PWDA. So I think having all of the neuro divergence under that same group, or like, saying the LGBT community, and while that may cover the L and the G and the B and the T, you know, they're all different. But they do have similar base core needs of understanding of acceptance. So I can understand how that can be the flip side of making a them versus us. And that's not what we want to do. But will we, by having an us, we can create psychological safety, which I think is the key. That's a great way of looking at it. Because I think in Australia at the moment, like dyslexia, is there's such a lack of awareness and understanding that the neuro diversity movement is coming in. And although it's been focused on autism, we're starting to work with more and more companies around trying to broaden our scope of work to encompass neuro diversity as a whole. And it's how do you ensure that all those needs are met, but I like what you bring it back to the core. I think that's a really nice way of explaining it. Thank you for listening to this podcast. The D hub is our digital learning space where you can access our first Australian e learning courses for those working in supporting dyslexic employees, as well as webisodes, online courses, communities of practice and much, much more. So head to the D hub today and start your learning journey. dhub.d dyslexic.com. You can, you know, be dyslexic and dyscalculic and be an ADHD leader, and possibly be formally recognised on those and be self recognised as autistic. And these are all of these things that may help you. And it really goes about, you know, this individual program, we can make a menu of and is some things that we know other companies that you know, and we try to collect to say, here's a menu of things that have helped people kind of like an a la carte menu to help bring, you know, to help go through your brain to say, Oh, that's a great idea that might help me or let me try that. And it's not that you have to take the full menu. But you can go through that as a guide, and even maybe find something that you can add to the menu to help the next. Yeah. Well, that's a nice way of looking at it. So can you explain your menu at IBM, and the wonderful work that you do? Oh, where to begin, we have a whole buffet. So our journey started in 2015, which actually is a little later than a lot of other companies, you know, some companies started, you know, 10 years ago, and we started five, and it did start with an autism focus. Autism usually gets the most oxygen in the room, you're talking about neurodiversity.

"Whereas if we change language to a high support needs son or a low support can be measured externally, how many hours of service the person gets, as opposed to saying, oh, can you read an analog clock and do your own taxes and tie your shoes? I can't do any of those. So does that make me not, you know, low functioning? So I think the language is very empowering. The same as if, you know, I say I'm a woman, I'm not a person with a uterus, although at my age, somebody could take it and I'll be happy with that. You know, it goes to, you know, identity and empowerment. Oh, I think I could have a whole separate podcast with you talking about language. And yeah, when I started the foundation, I didn't really know what I was getting myself into. I just wanted to help people like me. And on this journey, I really started to learn so much around disability and language and what people like it's constantly changing. So you mentioned how IBM has a big role around with supporting neuro diverse staff. And recently I heard the term neuro minority, and now we're called a neuro minority group. And I struggle to keep up with all the different terms. And sometimes I just say to my partner, I'm just a person. Like, why is there a new a new label to explain that? So why are we being grouped with all these different disorder, diversity, disability, whichever term you'd like to use. And so I think that's what I'm starting to get. And partly because I changed as a speech pathologist, I think I'm starting to think I really want to learn more about this, because it's constantly changing. And we're constantly being labeled. And we're just all humans at the end of the day. Absolutely. And when you make you do make things more neuro divergent friendly, you make things more human friendly. Although I agree, whether it's diversability, disability, you know, neuro, I've heard neuro plastic, I've heard neuro minority. I think there's power in identity. And I think having that identity lets us rally together. You know, I've heard a lot of people like, Oh, we're all a little neuro divergent. That's my answer to that is, you know, like, if somebody gets, you know, chronic migraine headaches, and you go, Oh, everybody gets headaches. Or if everybody can experience anxiety, whether it's a first date or a job interview, but if the anxiety affects you, at your base level to factor against, you know, how you work, how you leave the house, you know, all of the stigmas on, you know, mental health meds, which is probably a whole nother podcast, I think it's important to have that identity, and to be able to say, you know, I can help you and you can help me. And there's that sense of representation, which is critical, not only for the movement, but also critical and IBM's neuro diversity program.
"natalia" Discussed on Dear Dyslexic Podcast
"My own personal life, I grew up feeling that I was broken or what was wrong with me. And it wasn't until college that I was formally recognized as being dyslexic and a few other flavors of neurodiversity. And I specifically use formally recognized because I don't like that word dyslexic because it moves everything to that medical deficits model. You know, we don't go to the doctor to find out if we're gay or Asian or anything else. So you may hear me use some specific language language in there. And I think through that I developed an empathy and love for the underdog. And then as my life journey continued, I had a son who was formally recognized as autistic when he was six and was able to empower him to find his own strengths and to understand where his weaknesses might be and where to work that. And I learned I had to fight. I had to fight the schools. I have the scars on my back from working with, you know, teachers and other administrators. And it really, you know, going through the journey in his eyes, you know, seeing the difficulty in university and beyond really lit all of these fires for me. So there's two things I'd love to unpack with you. One, which we're going to talk about is neurodiversity and your work at IBM. But also, secondly, the language you just used then, because I love talking about language at the moment, part of my just happened to come out of the research is around language and labeling, but you use the word you didn't use diagnosed. No, I used formally recognized. Yes, which I've never heard that term before and very much moves away from that medical model of the labels. So that's a conscious choice. Is that something that's very common in the US or is that just conscious personal choice for how I think it's I think it's a conscious choice that I've heard one or a few others and I would just really run true to me. And it helps eliminate all of these systemic discrimination issues with individuals, especially adults trying to get that diagnosis, whether it's autism, dyslexia, you know, ADHD, because we don't fit the mold, right? So trying to find a provider, trying to find a medical provider that takes your insurance plan that you do in some countries, you have to pick and choose based upon what insurance plan they're under, trying to find one with experience in adults, and trying to go through all of those burdens. And even if you finally find the right provider, you may be faced with an unconscious bias, where they may, you know, in my case, I was given a booklet and a number two pencil. And they said, here, fill this out. And, you know, the very first question was like, you know, asking me about like my homework assignments. And it was obviously it was written in the early 90s. And obviously, as there's bias in there, probably for cisgender white eight year old affluent boys, and not, you know, an adult professional. So trying to move that burden off of the individual, we don't ask for such proof of who we are. You know, if you were a woman and needed to go have a break in the day to pump up breast milk, or if you needed a break in the day to go pray, we don't put these burdens on that individual to say, prove it, prove that you need to go do this. And neuro diversity should be accepted as any other factor there. And I love language too. The same things with like, you know, special needs. Well, are glasses a special need? Right? Or being left handed or right handed, you know, these aren't, you know, it's about equity, words like those labeling words like functioning, you know, oh, you have a high functioning son.

"Hello, everyone, and welcome to the Dear Dyslexic podcast series. I'm your host, Shaye Wiesel. Before we get started, I'd like to acknowledge the traditional owners of the lands on which I live and work, the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, and to pay my respects to IMC training. With more than 25 years experience, 12 international locations, and 350 employees, IMC is a leading full-service provider for digital training. Experts in the field of technology, e-learning content, and strategy work hand-in-hand to provide holistic and customized e-learning solutions worldwide. I was so delighted to come across today's panel. Natalia is a business transformation analyst, the global neurodiversity advancement leader and leader of global neurodiversity at IBM. Natalia is a proud neurodivergent and parent of an autistic IT professional. Nat enables businesses to see the value in embracing neurodiverse talent to attain highly skilled and dedicated professionals that may otherwise be overlooked. Natalie and I spoke about all things HR neurodiversity in the workplace and how IBM is making critical changes to ensure their neurodiverse staff work in an inclusive, supportive, strength-based environment. I hope you enjoy this podcast as much as I enjoyed speaking with Nat. I'm super excited to have on the show today, Nat, all the way from Pennsylvania. So I think this is mainly my second or third interview with someone in the United States. So welcome to the show, Nat. Thank you so much for having me. So for our listeners, I connected with Nat through LinkedIn, actually, when I was putting some posts out about our conference. And I saw her amazing job title and LinkedIn profile. And I thought, this looks like such an awesome lady to interview. And I think one of the amazing things about D-Dyslexic is the amount of generosity we get from people all around the world giving up their time to talk to us about dyslexia and neurodiversity. So thank you again for coming to chat to us today, Nat. Would you like to introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about who you are and what you do? Absolutely. So my name is Nat Lekowski, and I've been honored and blessed to be a part of the IBM family for over 27 years. And the past five years there or here, I've been focusing on neurodiversity advancement. And as of November 1st, I was honored to accept a brand new role as global neurodiversity advancement leader. And this is one thing that I feel sets IBM apart from some of the other wonderful companies out there working in neurodiversity in which we're focusing as much on our culture change and acceptance and development, as well as the hiring pilots, because they really need to be done together. So if you possibly have an organization that may be only focusing on hiring and not the culture change, you may not get the same result as if you're focusing on both.

"To six weeks you can you can kind of connections almost friendships that get developed. But the great thing is that the the effect of of kind of the hive. Mind of having all those brains around the same thinking about the same issue in in their different ways and and that's really enriching in my experience and i think people who take domestic lesser. Pc's will also there's also going to be an element like that now This is really a just a quick conversation to talk about this. About the anthology of value you are offering something special to the pg listeners. Can you just say what it is Just just before. We let people go back to to their lunch because this is a. It's now twelve. Forty six in montreal right right. Yes of course if you are you are if you're a follower of pd then of course you're most welcome to join us. And if you if you subscribe through the opportunity website and i will know that. It came from from david's channels. So you'll be given one extra test that you can use to because like all the participants of the training get access to to the test about you will get an extra access that you can give us a gift through your family member or friend so he will get extractive on the occasion. So that's a little incentive maybe to to take a look at a guy less. I want to tell you that the messages i it's really depends like where we fit in the job market. It depends too large extent on our mentality natural. So the whole point of what i do. Is i try to teach people to find their natural way of treating volume and the environment where they naturally fit. Because it was you can do is to try to force through the wall and Final in a place where you feel that you don't fit but you do nothing about it because you just don't know where to go otherwise so you know something is wrong. You waste the best years of your life feeling that something's missing but you just don't know what what is wrong and i had that in my grad school. I felt i didn't really fit as well like there was something more than just academia. I felt those. This is just not my tributes. There is nothing wrong about destroyed by these. Just look me in. It took me many many years. If i if i took the stand years ago i would be in a different place right now. And that's exactly what i want to achieve. I want to make you not lose your life doing things you shouldn't be doing and being in a place you should wish you shouldn't be ungodly if you ever meet me. A police think about it. Talk to people more. Try to understand the motivations to interact with people from different environments. And try to figure out where you fit best whom you shine sense of humor with you know. That's always a good indicator so like i laugh at davies jokes so so i can but alike and so now this is like a think about that because that will tell you a lot about where you should eventually steer yourself towards. Yeah i totally agree. I think introspection is very important. One thing that i wasn't expecting was that the test would make me think about my values might eat my core values and and it's it's it was interesting to to feel that challenged and and to have to reflect on that but definitely like natalia has been on the show i've seen her. You know evolve in published books in in crete trainings. And that's why i'm recommending int. That's why like for the first time in papa peachey. I'm considering a Natalia and anthology valley to become a sponsor of the show you didn't mention the date of the next cohort that starting at the end. Just before we finish our.

"Here you'll find everything to be a black belt at the phd and beyond. Welcome to the dough. Joel this is the first actually episode. One let's say of the beach. Dido joe and i'm super happy to have with me today. Someone who's been on pop. Each the natalia chelsea welcome natalia super happy to have you here because i'm eager to know to learn about the news that the i've shared on the podcast already that was published today. But i really really want to To hugh what to say about it thank you so much. Thank you so much. David is always great to see you and thank you so much for the detection. Yes actually Well festival. I would like to say a little bit about recent developments so i my. Name's talia i i since for years. I occupied fulltime with helping. Phd graduates spying find new careers and develop new career in the and also finding a new way in life of them as me. Actually it was a major leap for me to to to jump from kadena to entrepreneurship eventually. But i'm happy with my choice. I have to say so If i started with writing a book on the subject to learning about the subject for two years then i wrote a book entitled this day for me announce capable Career trucks and and then i started also training today the start trying actually. It was gradually growing in since two years and today known ontological volume masterclass and told you value means a principle the nature of value. Because it's also in the process of developing my company and learning about subject i felt that the essence of becoming successful professional is to discover what the natural way of producing value for others and because in the end volume is what is the to currency in the job market. Is we often look at where. Where can i make more money. But money is on your way of quantifying volume sometime highly suboptimal and not necessarily the same positions that created the most value our price the highest a so. It's like it's not. It doesn't work like one last one to one exchange but this approximation is only approximation for the value produce. Either indirect or indirect. Will eventually other people goes all of us in some way we serve others either. Dieting were indirectly. So i feel out. Ever since i personally discovered what my my way of creating value is My life got much easier. That's everyone that's That's every piece garage with every professional issue at some point in the live. Sit down and try to figure out. Okay what is the natural might not show altitude modest might not sure. Roll the wired cetera. And so i'm super happy that you mentioned that because and actually this is the the the reason so the doj oh the idea is to instead of the classical or the well. I'm saying classical just two years. But instead of the usual papa itchy interviews to bring actual. It's a dull joe so people come and learn skills and they go back home and they can use them break planks of wood. Metaphorically of course That's the concept. So i think this thing of this question of introspection is a really important one. I've mentioned it before. But what i really appreciate the work you've done with the book you've written is it's the systematic approach that you've had to this question so you had like you said this personal moment of aha. This is really changing. How i view myself in the job market. And how i present myself and the at least bring a hard to other people out there. My experience of going through the beach is i didn't zero introspection until close to the end and i'm i'm conversations with trainers with people who are in universities. Confirm to me that the earliest starts this introspection the better and Yeah My question to you is is twofold. I You know you create a test base. You know based on on your research which is called the The anthology of value tests. And i'd like you to share with the audience because there's you know there's different this out there. What's the value of Going through a test. Which is i did the test and it was really interesting to see what came out of it. And where i you know where the test kind of said i would fit well within an organization Because i i didn't suspect them where i didn't proceed them. Let's say but why did you. Why did you go through the exercise of creating a whole test for. Phd's these to help their their introspection. Actually i can tell you the origin story. Because i think it's quite unusual and it was two years ago. I i was already like my. Pc contact came to the end. I was thinking of what to do next with my life. And i was sitting in the solna and hearing the netherlands. We have these places where there's a whole complex of multiple sonars and Swimming pools together under syria restaurant in voice and everyone is sitting in Bathroom gowns in the restaurant. So you don't have those same visual cues as you normally have when you walk through the street and people addressing certain way so you can have like make some inference based on how they look but when everyone around you is sitting in the same dark blue gowns was can you tell about them but i actually a notice that i. I'm quite good at a guessing where they work given like just after shutting for a few minutes so corporations and entrepreneurs and people in public institutions had such a different mindset that i could i could have a good guess upset like five minutes of conversation so i thought to myself. There must be a way. There must be assigned some scientifically like he phoned way of Ultimate izing this by thinking. About what can i potentially ask to best couple on the differences in mentality between people working different working environment and then they took me another two years to develop the stool and indeed i myself. I studied psychometric. When i was on the ground in psychology so it was a long time ago but i wanting i really wanted disgust to be different. A was the way of asking questions so not only the results are supposed to be useful for you but like the questions are also supposed to be challenging so indistinct down on neutral answers because in many other tests there there's Scale which means that you have to rate yourself on certain scale for his from one to seven. So are you patience. While one means absolutely s. seven means not at all. You have to give yourself a great any test. You have four possible answers in.

Natalia has called on the international community to help. I said that. The person giving american president joe biden has called belarus's actions outrageous and i love. Underline president of the european commission said there would be new sanctions on belarus. This is an attack on democracy. This is an attack on freedom of expression and this is an attack on european sovereignity and this outrageous behavior needs a strong answer but putting meaningful pressure on. The regime won't be easy. It was very clear from the beginning that this was ordered by alexander lukashenko himself the president. The dictator of belarus ruled it for twenty.

Some people look at that shone like Oh, you know they do this and they do that. Can you imagine, if a, you know, I mean, they have a show, and they did the contracts and they produced two shows on the so forth. But can you imagine how most of us are all of us? Some of us?

"natalia" Discussed on The Stephen King Boo! Club
"I'm gonna go with comedy. So here's a fun fact. This was a trick one. So you're right regardless okay because while writing this description. I was writing it for escape room. Which is a recent horror movie in halfway through writing pot summary. I realized that this was also pretty much. The plot of rat race holy shit is just like oh well well here we are. Yeah that's it. Horace is comedy comedies. Horror is all about framing for sure about framing. And you see enough horror movies live you get into this where some audiences are going to be very quiet and subdued and very tense or whatever. Some audiences are going to be having a laugh riot the entire time. I prefer the second type personally. I like rowdy fine right like i want to go see it part one when it was in theaters Four or five times. Maybe i love that movie. It's almost like you should be the host of a podcast that talks about the writer of of it. Stephen i think you should hop on that. The bid has been made on has occurred. Anyway i remember seeing it with some pretty stern audiences and i remember seeing it the first for the first time i saw it. It was an pretty rowdy house which is great. I was there with a few friends and there was a very intense build up of of tension at some point. And there was like a misdirection. Scare where it's like the scare before the real scare and unconsciously. I made this sound and the entire.
"natalia" Discussed on The Stephen King Boo! Club
"Wendy wings. Yeah and i think. I did it threads a line for me successfully of of being campy but being so itself that it's actually it does get scary because you're like. Oh this is unhinged. You know and i i appreciate that in horror. Yeah and they're definitely like a lot of the scenes that like many aren't well. Once seen is particularly horror is when they tried to destroy weekly and it fails goes thraw quickly if those so wrong. And there's just this kind of gut wrenching moment when they realize oh like how badly things have just gone. And it's just like this. Yup you're fucked up fucked up fucked up. The thing with horror and theater for the stage is that it's very very difficult to to be as scary as say a movie or a novel is because there's always an element of live performance. Which is i don't know. I don't wanna say disconnected but like you know if someone's being stabbed in a in a play that the actors okay because you can see that they're fine if a character get stabbed in a novel or a book years. You're in that media in a very different way and you experience very differently so this this musical is not going to lake. Scare you in a way that like texas chainsaw massacre scares you but exactly ns because live performance especially like we know this from a hot experience it can be really hard to incorporate any kind of kind of gore horror yet Into live performance because ultimately you need to be able to clean that down in moving away scene. Yeah there's there's more of a kind of a cerebral on that pretentious about it but there's more like a fridge horror you think about it later and you're like oh that that's like the best part about them. See this is where stephen. differ in terms of horror tastes. 'cause he's you're more of lego. Might physical visceral scares. I'm much more of a psychological horror person..
"natalia" Discussed on The Stephen King Boo! Club
"I watched this. And i thought like wow. This is a very particular sense of humor. Sense of aesthetic like it knew exactly what it was and it did it. Did it a lot. And i respect that. Like i respect the game as someone who runs a queer theme stephen king podcast. Like if there's anyone who recognizes that not everything is going to be for everyone. It's your boy. So yeah but there's a song called. America is great again and guy so subtle man. Just you know. The guy didn't like musicals. Its invasion of the body snatchers but musical of the musical body. Snatchers a fun. Yeah it far more of a parody and less you know trying to stand on its own feet and say something powerful. And i think that's part of the reason why did so wellm first place in it's really minimalist to it's got like a very bones set especially compared to black friday. I believe because that song is general. Mcnamara's in that show it claes behind him as a late motif in black friday. Love that. so there's this really cool kind of musical consistency. There's also a a youtube. She series of episodes musical episodes. That came out last year. During during the heyday of the pandemic. That is god still still happen. Just should just a date. this down. it in a box headway for the box. Set it on fire. Don't even this is a no emotion. Podcast i have no feelings. Excellent the i appreciate. I think most honestly about this is that they've clearly cultivated a a community around their work and i think that that's really really important and really Like well done. It's it seems like the people that like. Their musicals love their musicals and iris our spec that. I think that that's a lot easier said than done to be consistent and be consistently good at what you're going for. Which is horror comedy. And yeah and i will say there musicals like that's not what they do. Normally the thing that. I think showing the most was the comedy. There are some very very funny lines in this piece. That will recur in my brain Perhaps i think the funniest for me personally was i can't be evil. I'm status quo democrat. That's funny joke. I have a lot of lines that i just kind of cycle in my head..
Russian Opposition Leader Navalny Moved to Prison Hospital
"Alexei navalny the jailed reason. Opposition leader has been transferred to what authorities are describing as a prison hospital. But what is supporters. Say is just a different jail with some medical staff onsite. Navalny has now been on. Hunger strike for three weeks after he was refused access to a civilian doctor for severe pain in his back a numbness in his arms and legs. His lawyer says he may be close to death. After blood tests from independent doctors showed dangerous levels of potassium could cause heart or kidney failure. Joining me is natalia. Vassily ever who is moscow correspondent for the telegraph the talia. Thanks for coming on the show. What do we know about navalny's conditioned. Today i give having me Will the most peaceful information we have is the blood tests that you have. These blood tests were taking Onsides at the prison where is serving his prison.

Is something shifting in Russia?
"It is no small thing for a russian citizen to challenge russia's government prominent critics risk of exile imprisonment own murder. Everyone else takes their chances with the tender mercies of russia's riot police but the challenges keep coming in recent weeks in particular. Large protests have been inspired by the latest persecutions of opposition figurehead alexei navalny. He's attempted assassination via poisoned underwear. He's medical evacuation to germany his return to russia and removal to a penal colony. This week navalny has been back in the dock in moscow on arcane charges of insulting a war veteran as is usually the case in such circumstances the very absurdity of the accusation is part of the lesson being taught which is that the powers that be can come for anybody for any reason this weekend. More protests are nevertheless scheduled a significant number of russians appear to have reached a perilous point for any authoritarian regime that of being passed caring about the consequences of dissent. These are not the first protests against president vladimir putin. But are they different. Are we on the verge of something seismic shifting in russia. This is the foreign desk. We have reached a point of no return and they felt that taken to the street was the only way to express their unhappiness with how things are going not just with aleksey navales jailing but also with the kremlin's foreign policy and declining living standards and declining incomes because this is not a genuine democracy. That doesn't mean that anything will change. Imminently the security forces at present a loyal the risks in coming out against the regime are just so vastly greater than anything to be gained but we are talking about the slow shabby decline rather than i would suggest at the moment. Any kind of dramatic cracking. It's only bolts the struggle between modernization and archaic way of life and put is a symbol of this archaic understanding of the universe and as we see as a socialist demonstrates that new generations are supporting navan the or not simply in the violence but he's way of understanding of the world. Hello and welcome to the foreign desk. I'm andrew miller on joint. First of all by natalya vasilyeva moscow correspondent for the daily telegraph natalia. First of all. Let's talk about this weekend. As i understand at the weather forecast is very very very much not encouraging for large-scale public protests. So what actually is planned. Hi andrew thank you for having me. Yes we're in the middle of a massive snowstorm bought. It's supposed to be over by sunday lunchtime. Which is when the protests are planned. The main opposition protests. This weekend's will be a sunday. Flash mob as the organizers called it they're asking on russians to come out of the houses and to stand yards for something as little as ten minutes and flash the torch on their phones. There's also going to be a couple of smaller. I would think rallies on sunday afternoon including a solas chain by women who want to express their support for the wife of alexey navalny. But that's pretty much all we have at the moment but you know i should also say that the two weekends of protests were also held pretty adverse weather conditions. As is you know it was cold and snowy so. I shouldn't think that the weather should be in the way on sunday. And it's not hard to discern the strategic thinking behind these decentralized protests. You can't very well send out riot. Police against people standing in their own front yards all over a city. The size of moscow wilson petersburg or any other russian city in fact. So do we have any idea how the authorities are likely to react to a protest of this sort. Well it's interesting that you ask because we did hear statements from the police and even prosecutors warning people against showing up for something that does not constitute a public assembly let alone a illegal public assembly. Obviously i don't expect right police to show up at every person's front door but if we see any source of flash mobs around town any gatherings and on central locations i think that might be a police response but i definitely don't expect anything as big violent as we saw two weeks ago. What's been your sense over. The past few weeks of where people are finding against the reserves of courage to participate in any demonstration against the russian state. Because it's not a small undertaking. Everybody who makes any kind of protesting. Russia will be aware of the risk. They are taking. What is it about this moment. That has led so many people to be able to get past that fear. It's interesting because when i interviewed people at the two rallies. I went to at the end of january. A lot of people i met were first-time protesters who had never been at any sort of political rallies. Even at the time when take into to the street didn't entail any physical or legal risks. A lot of those people told me that they have reached a point of no return and felt that take into the street was the only way to express their unhappiness with how things are

Biden's Catholicism Could Influence The Abortion Debate, Activists Say
"President Biden is only the second Catholic president of the United States. He's also a supporter of abortion rights. Ah, position at odds with official teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. During the first White House press briefing of the Biden administration, a reporter from a Catholic network asked Press Secretary Jen Psaki about Biden's abortion policies. I will just take the opportunity to remind all of you that he is a devout Catholic and somebody who attends church regularly. He started his day attending church with his family this morning. NPR's Sarah McCammon examines what binds Catholicism's could mean for the abortion debate for Catholic activists like Marjorie Dannenfelser. President Biden's high profile example of a Catholic who supports abortion rights is troubling. It's a negative example of a deep and important moral issue that is being debated in this country. Dannenfelser is president of the Susan B. Anthony list, which has worked for years to help confirm conservative Supreme Court justices. She's particularly disturbed by Biden's embrace of a broader push among Democrats to repeal the Hyde amendment, which prohibits federal funding for most abortions. Ah, position he took in 2019 while running for the Democratic presidential nomination. After decades of supporting hide. The church itself has not changed. And its view ever on the dignity of human life and the need for its protection. He can't bring the Catholic Church along with him because of his political needs. But for those who like to see the church take a more permissive stance on issues including abortion, Biden's election is an opportunity. Jamie Manson is president of Catholics for choice. There are many issues in which Catholics are descending from the bishops and seeing that these are complex moral issues, whether it's same sex marriage, whether it's contraception or whether it's abortion Holding suggests a majority of American Catholics support abortion rights in most or all cases, and most Catholic women say they've used contraception, which the church also opposes. With a conservative Supreme Court majority and Biden in the White House. Manson predicts continued battles over issues including conscience exemptions, for example, for pharmacists who object to dispensing the morning after pill or employers who oppose including contraceptive coverage in their health plans. What I hope one of the impacts on public policy will be is to say, Listen, that is not what religious freedom is about religious freedom is about No one being oppressed or having their civil rights loss because of individual religious beliefs. Conservative Catholics, meanwhile, worry Biden will roll back Trump administration policies that they've seen as a victories for religious liberty. Already, the administration has said Biden is preparing to reverse the Mexico City policy, which prohibits US funding for organizations that perform or refer patients for abortion and other countries. But a study in the journal The Lancet found that the policy actually increased the abortion rate in some countries, most likely because it also reduced access to contraception. Natalia Imperatori Lee is a progressive Catholic theologian and religious studies professor at Manhattan College in New York. So I think the biting from a policy perspective is going to do things that end up Reducing the number of abortions, however, divided the rank and file. The church's position remains the same. On Inauguration Day, The U. S conference of Catholic Bishops released a statement praising Biden's piety but expressing deep concern about several of his positions, including his support for abortion rights. Sarah McCammon.

The Basilisks Stare feat. Nabiyah Be & Evan Whitten
"Once upon a time there was an armourer named martin. Martin spent his days working with metal using it to create glistening swords sparkling shields and full suits of yes glittering armor and everyone agreed that of all the arms in the city. Martin was the greatest. Oh you should see. The sword mar made for me last week. It schumer's like moonlight on the water. Well you should see the shield he made for me. It glistened like the stars. I don't doubt it. The suit of armor he made for me is so shining so bright. It's reflects i chimera. Martin lived with his children natalia. And conrad in a tiny house at the edge of town. Martin's shop was in the basement talia and conrad loved traipsing down the steps to watch their father work i. He retired on his thick leather apron. Then he would heat up his medal into glow to fiery yellowish orange and grew soft and bendable after that he would use a heavy iron hammer to forge the metal into all different shapes. Then you would let the metal cool and he polished rubbing and scrubbing until indeed. It reflected like a mirror one summer morning. Martin told natalia conrad that he would be gone for the day on business. Listen you to. I need to deliver a full suit of armor to a customer who lives far off in the countryside. He turned to natalia natalia. You're the oldest. So i want you to look after your little brother. While i'm gone of course father i'd be happy to conrad rolled his eyes. Oh come on father. I don't need my older sister to babysit. I'm a big kid now. I know you're a big kid. Conrad and getting bigger every day. But for now you'll do. Your sister says hokey dokie. I have a long trip ahead of me. Need to skedaddle. Have fun today. My dears martin kissed his children goodbye and out the door as he disappeared down the street. Natalia turned to conrad with twinkling eyes. I have an idea little brother. The circus is in town. They're performing in the market square right in the middle of the city. Would you like to see it. Conrad's face broke into a grin. You bet i liked to see the circus. Let's go when natalia and conrad reached the market square. They were greeted by all sorts of enchanting sites. Agile walkers tiptoeing towering tightropes graceful acrobats swinging from flying trapezes plus nimble-fingered jugglers funny face clowns and hearted riders standing breath and tall on the backs of gleaming galloping horses during a break in the show. Natalia and conrad wandered around the square and saw vendors selling all sorts of goodies toys. Books candies but then. Hey natalia something else caught conrad's look over there. Look conrad pointed toward a jagged heap of stones in a shadowy narrow alley off the square. There's the old stone building to one worthy. Say the bacilus cliffs. Natalia felt her blood run. Cold everyone in town knew the legend of the basilisk. It was said that the bacilus kept the body of a dragon. The head of a rooster tail of a serpent down in the dink dark cellar of the old stone building. The bacilus stood guard over a magnificent treasure and if you stared into the bacilus glowing red eyes you would immediately turn to stone so sister conrad's mouth lifted into a mischievous smile. Are you thinking what i'm thinking. Natalia's is grew wide. Wait a minute brother. Your not thinking of actually going in there are you. What about the bassil. Ihsc bacilus sh- massa lisk don't be such a 'fraidy cat sys like dads said. I'm a big kid now. And i'm going to prove it

And when the president spoke on this radio show, giving his views was that a surprise It is absolutely because so far the message is coming from the government were absolutely of a different nature. We had the deputy prime minister of questions he who was also the leader of the Law and Justice Party, and he called on Christian Catholics to form self defense units to protect the churches and the traditional values, and there was immediately a reaction to this.

What does it mean now, though, I mean, where does it leave it, Especially given what the president said. Do you think this is going to have a change?

Do you feel there'll be a change of view within the government or within the opposition, bringing some fresher to bet? This is an incredibly difficult question that everyone is asking themselves right now in Poland, because you know this ruling has been issued by the Constitutional Tribunal in the theory is biting not be appealed. So there are so many legal questions like how can you proceed right now? And to the illness, the only solution that appears To be, you know, realistic right now. It's just not publish it.
