In Non-Compliant Episode 42, Host Jay Edelson, nationally recognized plaintiff's attorney, and Founder of Edelson PC, is joined by Trevor Hughes, the CEO of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP). Trevor is a leading privacy expert who routinely testifies on issues of privacy, surveillance and privacy-sensitive technologies before the U.S. Congress, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, and the British Parliament.To start the show, Jay and Trevor discuss the beginnings of their careers, and the privacy legal landscape in the early 2000s (4:35). Next, Jay and Trevor discuss pivotal moments for privacy in the last twenty years (20:00). For Jay, a major paradigm shift was the Edward Snowden leaks. After Snowden leaked classified information to the world, courts started viewing privacy different, and were much more receptive to privacy concerns. For Trevor, one of the first crucial moments was in 2003, when California SB1386 passed. To end the show, Trevor and Jay gives their predictions on what the next five years look like for privacy (36:14).

Gabrielle Dolan's work spans from personal leadership communication to organizational communication. The bridge that unites these two domains is story. Her new book, Magnetic Stories, helps companies craft stories that connect and engage. From the stories we tell at work to the stories that build iconic brands, we discussed it all this week on the On Brand podcast About Gabrielle Dolan Gabrielle Dolan is considered a global expert in business storytelling and real communication. She is a highly sought-after keynote speaker and best-selling author of seven books including her latest Magnetic Stories. Her client list is extensive including the likes of Visa, Amazon, EY, Uber, Accenture, Telstra, Australia Post, and the Obama Foundation. The professional highlight of her career so far is meeting Barack Obama while delivering storytelling training for the Obama Foundation. Gabrielle is the founder of Jargon Free Fridays and her dedication to the industry was recognized when she was awarded Communicator of the Year for 2020 by the International Association of Business Communicators. Episode Highlights Sorry, Jeff. Amazon Founder Jeff Bezos is often quoted as saying your brand is “what people say about you when you're not in the room.” I like Gabrielle's edit of this idea a lot better. Your brand is made up of, “the stories people share about you.” Barbie: Master Storyteller. Or, rather, Ruth Handler, master storyteller. Most are quick to judge Barbie dolls but Gabrielle sets the record straight on the creation story of this iconic brand. The five types of stories that every business needs. The creation story is just one of the five types of stories Gabrielle writes about in her new book Magnetic Stories. Organizations also need: Creation stories about how your company, product, or service started, Culture stories about the values of your company and its people, Customer stories—more than just testimonials, Community stories about your good deeds, and Challenge stories about how you've responded to obstacles along the way. What are the common mistakes companies make when it comes to storytelling? “They think they only need one story. You need lots of stories!” What brand has made Gabrielle smile recently?

These complaints have been happening since 2017-2018 but World Athletics did not give a more clear answer until January 2020.[5] The major changes of these guidelines state that the "sole must be no thicker than 40mm" and that "the shoe must not contain more than one rigid embedded plate or blade (of any material) that runs either the full length or only part of the length of the shoe. The plate may be in more than one part but those parts must be located sequentially in one plane (not stacked or in parallel) and must not overlap".[4] The components of the shoes are not the only thing that had major changes; starting April 30, 2020, "any shoe must have been available for purchase by any athlete on the open retail market (online or in store) for a period of four months before it can be used in competition".     1/1/2020 - The Nike Vaporfly Just Survived a Potential Ban World Athletics (track and field's governing body, formerly the International Association of Athletics Federations) made its highly anticipated announcement on the regulation of running shoe technology. Although there had been rumors in recent weeks—aggravated by several bogus news stories—that the organization was planning on making Nike's coveted Vaporfly Next% racing shoe illegal in elite competition, this does not appear to be the case.   Rather, World Athletics will be prohibiting the use of shoe prototypes in competition. (This is a good idea.) The new rule states: “From 30 April 2020, any shoe must have been available for purchase by any athlete on the open retail market (online or in store) for a period of four months before it can be used in competition. If a shoe is not openly available to all then it will be deemed a prototype and use of it in competition will not be permitted.”   Additionally, World Athletics has issued an “immediate moratorium” on any shoe that has a heel stack height of more than 40 millimeters and more than “one rigid embedded plate or blade (of any material).”   Placing a limit on sole thickness has been one of the proposed solutions on how to best regulate shoe technology going forward. The breakthrough innovation of Nike's original Vaporfly 4% shoe, released in 2017, was that it combined a carbon fiber plate with an unusually thick (over 30 millimeters) super lightweight Pebax foam midsole. Some fear that if this design development goes unchecked, racing shoes might veer towards the farcical; imagine future runners bounding along in airy platform shoes.   Make no mistake, the new 40-millimeter limit is not arbitrary. The maximum stack height of Nike's Vaporfly Next% is usually reported at around 36 millimeters, and therefore sneaks under the new threshold. However, the shoes that Eliud Kipchoge wore when he became the first man to run a marathon in under two hours last year in Vienna (code name: “AlphaFly”) are potentially well over the limit, although Nike has not provided any data since the shoe hasn't been released.    12/23/21 - World Athletics has approved new shoe rules and regulations for competition. The new rules have brought a major update to the future of the sport, as athletes will not be allowed to wear shoes that have over a 20mm stack height during competition. This rule is set to be implemented in November 2024, which is after the Paris Summer Olympics and the 2024 Diamond League season.   The previous rule was 20mm stack height for sprint and hurdle events up to 400m and 25mm for events 800m and above.

Everyone in our community – race directors, coaches, clubs, officials, volunteers and athletes – continuing to work tirelessly to bring our sport back from the depths of 2020. The Olympics and Paralympics were historic with US athletes taking home the most medals of any country. Such awe-inspiring performances, in the face of so much adversity and uncertainty. Together, We Thrive. This year was full of incredible people doing equally incredible things to make our sport and community more diverse, equitable, inclusive and accessible.

These complaints have been happening since 2017-2018 but World Athletics did not give a more clear answer until January 2020.[5] The major changes of these guidelines state that the "sole must be no thicker than 40mm" and that "the shoe must not contain more than one rigid embedded plate or blade (of any material) that runs either the full length or only part of the length of the shoe. The plate may be in more than one part but those parts must be located sequentially in one plane (not stacked or in parallel) and must not overlap".[4] The components of the shoes are not the only thing that had major changes; starting April 30, 2020, "any shoe must have been available for purchase by any athlete on the open retail market (online or in store) for a period of four months before it can be used in competition".     1/1/2020 - The Nike Vaporfly Just Survived a Potential Ban World Athletics (track and field's governing body, formerly the International Association of Athletics Federations) made its highly anticipated announcement on the regulation of running shoe technology. Although there had been rumors in recent weeks—aggravated by several bogus news stories—that the organization was planning on making Nike's coveted Vaporfly Next% racing shoe illegal in elite competition, this does not appear to be the case.   Rather, World Athletics will be prohibiting the use of shoe prototypes in competition. (This is a good idea.) The new rule states: “From 30 April 2020, any shoe must have been available for purchase by any athlete on the open retail market (online or in store) for a period of four months before it can be used in competition. If a shoe is not openly available to all then it will be deemed a prototype and use of it in competition will not be permitted.”   Additionally, World Athletics has issued an “immediate moratorium” on any shoe that has a heel stack height of more than 40 millimeters and more than “one rigid embedded plate or blade (of any material).”   Placing a limit on sole thickness has been one of the proposed solutions on how to best regulate shoe technology going forward. The breakthrough innovation of Nike's original Vaporfly 4% shoe, released in 2017, was that it combined a carbon fiber plate with an unusually thick (over 30 millimeters) super lightweight Pebax foam midsole. Some fear that if this design development goes unchecked, racing shoes might veer towards the farcical; imagine future runners bounding along in airy platform shoes.   Make no mistake, the new 40-millimeter limit is not arbitrary. The maximum stack height of Nike's Vaporfly Next% is usually reported at around 36 millimeters, and therefore sneaks under the new threshold. However, the shoes that Eliud Kipchoge wore when he became the first man to run a marathon in under two hours last year in Vienna (code name: “AlphaFly”) are potentially well over the limit, although Nike has not provided any data since the shoe hasn't been released.    12/23/21 - World Athletics has approved new shoe rules and regulations for competition.

Although over the past thirty years Stephen has penned a few television scripts and could always be found working somewhere inside the entertainment/media industry, Living With Ghosts is his first feature film. It features Amit Goswami, David Hufford, Paul Selig, Dr. Jeffrey Kripal, Dr. Jan Holden, and Graham Maxey. The story idea was inspired by the death of Stephen's father when shortly afterwards his mother began reporting interactions with whom she believed to be dad's ghost — a real-life Mrs. Muir situation. Which naturally begged the question: Are ghosts a real phenomenon or are they merely symptomatic of profound grief? Living With Ghosts is the culmination of a seven-year investigation into the nature of love, loss, and ghosts and features three survivors on their quest for answers. JAN HOLDEN, EDD, LPC-S, ACMHP After 31 years on the University of North Texas (UNT) Counseling Program faculty, Jan Holden retired in 2019 as Professor Emerita of Counseling. Beginning in 1988 with her doctoral dissertation, her primary research focus has been counseling implications of near-death and related experiences. In this research area she has over 50 refereed journal publications and over 100 national and international presentations and has received numerous awards and honors. Since 2008 she has served as editor-in-chief of the International Association for Near-Death Studies's scholarly Journal of Near-Death Studies, and she serves currently as that association's President.

In this episode, Specialist Sports Physiotherapist, Morten Hoegh, talks about pain and injury management and research. Today, Morten talks about his workshop on pain, the problems in the research around pain and injuries, and embracing the patient as the expert. What is nociplastic pain? Hear about the injury versus pain narrative, treating the perception of injury during pain, the problem of over-treating pain, and get Morten's advice to his younger self, all on today's episode of The Healthy, Wealthy & Smart Podcast.   Key Takeaways “There is a difference between having an injury and being in pain.” “You will have injury and pain on one end, but you will have pain without injury on the other end.” “Just because we know something doesn't mean we know everything.” “Pain prevention is well-intentioned, sometimes unrealistic, and possibly unhelpful.” “All pain is real. It's always experienced as pain.” “People who live their life with pain, they are experts.” “We have different aspects and different competences, and we should bring them together.” “We should definitely try and cure pain from the planet, but maybe not by opioids.” “Things take time to cope with.” “Make sure you stick to good ideas if you think they're good, but also leave them if they're not.”   More about Morten Hoegh After qualifying as a clinical physiotherapist (1999) and completing several clinical exams, Morten was granted the title of specialist physiotherapist in musculoskeletal physiotherapy (2005) and sports physiotherapy (2006). It was not until 2010-12 he made an entry to academia when he joined the multidisciplinary Master-of-Science in Pain: Science & Society at King's College London (UK). From 2015-19 Morten did his PhD in Medicine/pain at Center for Neuroplasticity and Pain (CNAP), Aalborg University. He is now an assistant professor. Having spent more than a decade as clinician, teacher, and business developer, he decided to focus on improving national and international pain education based on the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP). Morten was vice-chair of the European Pain Federation's Educational Committee from 2018-20 and has been involved in the development of the Diploma in Pain Physiotherapy and underlying curriculum, as well as the curricula in nursing and psychology. At a national level, Morten has been appointed to several chairs and committees, including the Danish Medicine and Health Authorities and the Danish Council of Ethics. He has co-authored a textbook on pain, and written several book chapters, clinical commentaries, and peer-reviewed basic science articles on pain and pain modulation. Morten's first book on pain in layman's terms will be published in January 2021. Morten is regarded as a skilled and inspiring speaker, and he has been invited to present in Europe and on the American continent. He is also a prolific debater and advocate of evidence-based and patient-centred approaches to treatment in general. Morten is motivated by his desire to improve management of chronic pain, reduce stigmatisation of people with ‘invisible diseases', and to bridge the gap between clinical practice and neuroscience research in relation to pain.   Suggested Keywords Healthy, Wealthy, Smart, Physiotherapy, Neuroscience, Pain, Injury, Rehabilitation, Research, Experience, Treatment, Management,   Resources: #IOCprev2021 on Twitter.   To learn more, follow Morten at: Website:          http://www.videnomsmerter.dk                         https://p4work.com Twitter:            @MH_DK Instagram:       @mhdk_drmortenhoegh LinkedIn:         Morten Hoegh   Subscribe to Healthy, Wealthy & Smart: Website:                      https://podcast.healthywealthysmart.com Apple Podcasts:          https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/healthy-wealthy-smart/id532717264 Spotify:                        https://open.spotify.com/show/6ELmKwE4mSZXBB8TiQvp73 SoundCloud:               https://soundcloud.com/healthywealthysmart Stitcher:                       https://www.stitcher.com/show/healthy-wealthy-smart iHeart Radio:                https://www.iheart.com/podcast/263-healthy-wealthy-smart-27628927   Read the Full Transcript Here:  00:02 Hi, Morten, welcome to the podcast. I'm very excited to have you on. So thanks so much. Thank you for having me, Karen. It's a pleasure to be here. Yeah. And today, we're going to talk about your really wonderful, wonderful workshop at the IOC conference in Monaco. That was just a couple of weeks ago. And you did a great workshop on pain, which is one of my passions.   00:27 But I would, I think   00:30 the best thing for us to do here is to just throw it over to you. And let you give a little background on the talk. And then we'll dive into the talk itself. So go ahead.   00:43 Thank you. And, you know, I'm really happy that you liked it. It was a great pleasure to present that the IRC was my first time there as well. A lovely place to be and very lovely people. And he really well organized conference as well. Well, back to the background. So the tool was, the workshop, as it were, was actually originally something I planned with Dr. Kieran or Sullivan, who is now in Ireland. Unfortunately, he couldn't come due to turn restrictions and all of that for COVID. So we had to change it slightly. But over the period of the last sort of year or so I've been working with colleagues at all university where I'm affiliated and test Denton and Steven George of Adelaide and, and to university respectively. And together with them, we sort of have written up this idea that there is a difference between having an injury and being in pain. And the reason we came about that was because we wanted to try and look into what is actually the sort of narrative definition of a sports injury. And and some one of my colleagues are actually two of my colleagues Kosta, Luke, and Sabine Avista. We're looking into this and trying to sort of find out what the consensus what they came up with, when they were looking at the last 10 years of of sports related research is that the same articles could use injury and pain for the same thing. So it was being used almost as well, not almost, but as sentiment synonymously throughout the program, or the manuscript, and others will stick to pain and others will stick to injury. But if you then try to go down into the methods and find out what is an injury, really, some would have definitions, but there weren't really anything. And definitely, there wasn't a clear distinction between when is the tissue injured. And when is the athlete suffering from pain that is keeping them from not doing what they want to do.   02:50 So we came up with this idea to write an editorial for the BDSM. We couldn't get it accepted as an editorial, we were under the impression that maybe the topic was a bit too narrow. So it really wouldn't have any impact. But we had a we had some some help from from   03:12 sorry, you can cut that bit out. I was just losing her name. Let me just get it here.   03:21 Oh, that's she was such a great help. I'm really sorry for not being able to I definitely think we should put her name in there.   03:32 Oh, here we go.   03:35 So we wanted to do the editorial first. But we were under the impression that we couldn't get the editorial through because the topic, you know, is probably a bit too narrow. But fortunately, Madeline Thorpe, who is working with TAs in Adelaide, she helped us create this infographic that sort of conveyed the message of the difference between what we call a sports related injury and a sports related pain. So after a few revisions, the BJs took it in as an infographic with a short text to describe what we mean. And and it's been. It's been, you know, quite well cited afterwards. So we're very happy with the the attention that this idea has got. And then of course, what we really are trying to do here is to create two new semantic entities as we say, Where where it's clear when we do research, but also when we talk to athletes, are you really injured? Is the tissue injury that needs healing and where you might need you know, specific treatment for that injury versus Are you having pain as a consequence of an injury or even without an injury, which is what we call sports related pain. So that's sort of the broader concept and and I hope I've I've done right with my co authors.   05:00 because they've Of course, been been a huge part of both the development and the writing of these, these, this infographic.   05:09 Yeah. And can we now sort of dive in a little bit deeper? So, injury versus pain? Right. I think a lot of people will think that every time you have an injury, there's pain. So used a really nice example in your talk. So does tendon tissue damage lead to pain? Yeah. But is the pain in the area of the tendon equal to damage to the tendon?   05:38 Maybe not. Yeah. Right. Oh, so yeah. So let's, let's have you kind of dive into this injury versus pain narrative. And if you want to go into those pain mechanisms that you spoke about, we can dive into that as well, because I know that that people had some questions on that on social media. So let's first talk injury versus pain. Yeah, again, my my perspective on this with my background, being a physio and, and sort of a neuroscientist is that I come from it, I would say from a pain, scientist pain mechanistic approach. And what I try to do is to understand what goes on in the human that could explain why they feel pain. And in some instances, and for instance, in low back pain, we we think, in about maybe 80 to 95% of the cases, we don't know what's going on. So we're pretty sure that the risks are mechanism, perhaps are quite complicated. One there has multiple factors that are interrelated, but there's probably something. So that's really difficult to study. Again, consider consider, you know, if you were tasked to, to come up with a, you know, a model where you could study this model would be, for instance, an animal model. So not that I would encourage people to go out and, you know, do bad things to other animals. But just, you know, for the sake of the example, let's imagine that you wanted to do an animal model of low back pain, or even a herniated sorry, a groin injury, you could say, in sports.   07:20 If you know, the most basic thing to do would be to create an injury. If you don't want to create an injury injury, what you could do is induce inflammation, you know, inject capsaicin, or put something under the skin or down into the tissues, and that makes your immune system go, you know, make inflammation. And that inflammation makes your nervous system respond more powerful. We call it sensitization, I think many people have heard of that word by now.   07:49 And that's a really good way to create that sensation of pain in humans as well. So we can inject capsaicin again, and people will usually feel pain.   08:00 In that case, that's what happens or that's how we understand what happens in the case of a tissue injury. So when there's a tissue injury, there's inflammation, and we understand that pain. So when the tissue hit healing period, is sort of crossing from what you could say, the inflammatory phase, into the prolific face, pain should go down. And in most cases, that's what happened. But what when the pain persists after the inflammatory phase. You know, from the science perspective, we don't know that. But we still know that this person is in pain. So whether that be an athlete or non athletes, they're still in pain. And in this in sort of the pain research world, we have a definition of pain that doesn't necessitate any type of injury, not even any activation of those, we call them nociceptors. But nociceptive system you could say.   08:53 So we acknowledge that people can have pain and not be Do not be damaged, not be injured, not have pathology. And that's sort of the idea that we are trying to bring into sports medicine as well, which has been over the you know, many last decades I've you know, I've been in in sports medicine or as a sports physio, for 20 odd years and sort of dominating belief. And also perhaps, trajectory has always been sort of the orthopedic sports related and to some extent, also pharmacological approach, combined with and that's important, combined with a non pharmacological physio, perhaps approach. So there's been this interrelationship collaboration between doctors and physios and other health professionals, which is quite unique. As I see it in the musculoskeletal system. We don't see that to the same extent, for instance, for low back pain or neck pain, but sports has done that. But maybe there has also kept people within the realms of sort of orthopedic approaches trying to understand what goes on. It's   10:00 tissues, and why did they hurt, and then when you couldn't find out why they hurt, we've just looked deeper into the tissues, which is, of course, a good idea from a scientistic or scientists perspective, because there are definitely things in the tissues that we don't know today, which will, you know, make us become more aware of what goes on, you know, as, as late as in the beginning of October, wasn't it where the Nobel Prizes were given out, there was given a Nobel Prize out for the person, I might do violence to his name, but it's part of Putin, I think he's last name it.   10:36 I didn't, I suppose a Putin or something like that. I do apologize for not being able to pronounce it. But he got the Nobel Prize was shared the Nobel Prize for his work on a peer to two receptors, which is a quite new phenomenon and sort of the longer perspective, but it might learn us over time, why could movement hurt? Which is something we don't know today? So if there's no sensitization, why does it hurt to be moving? And that's really interesting. But again, coming out in the clinic, we don't know enough. So we will have patients in the clinic where we simply do not know why they hurt.   11:14 And you could say that doesn't matter. We can call it anything. But then if you take a clinical look at what goes on what happens again, if you look at the signs, what does it mean, when people are hurting, and they think they're injured? They This is what a percentage again, they seem to be thinking that they're being in pain is the same as being weak. If you're weak, you're not, you know, you're not allowed to be in on the team, you might lose your position. So it has a lot of negative connotations. And I mean, that in itself is wrong. But what if it's based on a misconception that just because you're hurting, you are also injured? And couldn't we help people who are hurting with their pain,   11:59 just as well as we could if they are injured with a tissue injury. So what we are saying is that the two are different. They're both real, they should both be addressed. And they're not, they're not opposite ends of a dichotomy, you will have injury and pain in one end, but you will have pain without injury on the other end. So we need to pay attention to both of them separately. Yeah, it's because sometimes a person has a pain problem   12:29 may not be a specific tissue problem, but they have a pain problem. And so this pain problem may, like you said, cause certainly a an athlete to catastrophize. And to really play out to the point where maybe now they're fearful to get on the pitch or the court or the field. And so where does that leave us as physio therapists when it comes to their care? How do we help manage someone, or I should say, help someone manage their pain in order to play their sport, knowing that their every time they go out and play, they're not compounding, quote, unquote, tissue damage?   13:14 Yeah, and interesting, let's say someone has the perception that their tissues are injured, and every time they move, that's a sign of their tissue injury, or even when they hurt more, the injury is bigger, then that person, I mean, if that's a person like me, I would think that I should do something about that injury so that I don't hurt. But pain is always a symptom of something underlying it. Whereas we know from pain research in for instance, low back pain, that pain can in itself, be the disease, what the ICD 11 is now describing as chronic primary pain. So you can have that in your body, you can have it in your tendons, you can have it all way where your tendons are, you can have it where you know, where the bones are, where the where you feel the muscles are. And it's the pain itself is the problem. So rather than looking specifically at a tissue, which needs strengthening or some sort of treatment, then we can look at the person and say, What is it really that you need? A very, very simple example here, which is unlikely to be, you know, the case for everyone. But let's imagine we have someone with knee pain. And the thing that happens is that when they start running, their knee pain gets worse. But if they've been running for a kilometer, or two kilometer or miles, whatever, you know, whatever metric you use,   14:40 then the pain might be the same. So it sort of comes from nothing to let's say, five in the first mile, and then it stays at five, maybe six, and that person wants to run two miles perhaps. But what's the problem in that? I mean, the problem of course, is if pain in this case is a sign of an injury   15:00 that we should attend to. So we need to understand that it's not an injury.   15:06 Once we've done that, why not help this person, deal with the pain and maybe deal with it when they run, just like we would say to someone, if they have, again, back pain, for instance, and they have pain when they work, but their pain is not necessarily worse when they work, should they not be working? I mean, of course, if, if your pain can go away by two days of rest, and graded exposure, that's fine. But in some cases, and they're not as rare as I think most people believe they are, that we just need to work with that person and help them do what they need or want to do with that pain. And why is that, you know, of course, it's not the optimal it would be much nicer is if we would just kill the pain. Or if they could kill their own pain. But we're not there yet, we are still working to get it. And we're not giving up, there's a lot to do. But currently today, and tomorrow, we need to help people work with their pain, that's the best thing we can do now, and and, you know, giving people that agency to actually manage their pain. So in the case of the runner before, maybe the best thing we can help them do is share with them ideas and make them take agency over their pain by you know, using perhaps a cold pack or heat pack or a rest regime or watching you know, something that takes off their mind of their pain for a minute look at you know, watching dope sick on Disney, whatever they need to do to get their mind off, you know, the pain that they have, so that they can recharge, and they can be as you know, their normal again, before they go out for another run. So all of these things would make absolutely no sense if we didn't acknowledge that pain in itself is the problem, because it's not helping anyone's tissue injury, if there was a such to become better. So again, that's the infographic in its essence is that on one end, you use those inspiration to how to manage pain, what that means and how pain is influenced. And on the other side, you will have tissue injuries, and how to manage that, for instance, loading. In sports medicine loading is a big issue. It's probably the one thing that you know, everyone is doing when you're rehabilitating some someone after an injury or pain. But pain doesn't necessarily necessarily sorry, pain doesn't necessarily respond to loading. So you can have the same pain, whether or not you're loading. But there could be tons of other things such as the way you think about your pain, the way you respond to your pain experiences you've had before the context your work in. So you can run in one context without too many pains or problems. But in a completely different context. For instance, when you do a competition, or if you know, if you need to do something, because that's the bar to get onto the competition you want to do, then pain can be a much, much bigger problem. So we need to understand that context of beliefs and experience really influences pain, whereas loading may not. But it could have caused, but it doesn't have to. So pain is a much larger, much more complex topic of which we still don't know too much. We do know quite a lot. And as long as there's an injury, we understand the pain that goes with it. But when it comes to these pains that are there by themselves, the ICD 11 type chronic primary pain, then that's the type of pain that we you know, we've really, we don't have the sort of blueprints on that. So we can't help everyone. And we can't say this is right for you or wrong for you. We need to do individualized care for all of these people and help them find the best tools to support themselves. Yeah, and I think that was something that people who weren't at the conference and kind of reading through tweets,   19:08 that certainly brought up some questions, one of which was the pay mechanism, no sub plastic pain, where we can't fully explain it. And so then there was a question of, we can't fully explain it, why even bring it up? So I'll throw it over? Yeah. It's, again, it's a good question. And especially if you're a clinician, why would you use it, though, they're basically what they are. They're ways that scientists understand the pain. So again, imagine you're standing at one end of the road and you're looking at the other end by the end of that road, a very long road, you have pain. And then the way the place you're standing at is how you explain how to get to that end point. And if you're standing at a place and you know there's a tissue injury, there's inflammation. We understand that as   20:00 Part of the normal normal nociceptive system. So we would call it nociceptive pain.   20:05 Underneath that there is a range of different changes and modulator modulators of the system that leads to, for instance, peripheral and central sensitization. So they're not unique to anything that is there also in nociceptive pain, but it's induced by, for instance, a tissue injury.   20:24 If you have a different tissue injury, the one that hits your nervous system, we call it a neuropathic pain, so you have a nerve damage, along with pain, we call that a neuropathic pain. So again, you're standing on this long road, but in this case, the road itself is sort of gone wrong. But we still know what's going on. Again, if you want to use the study metaphor, you can, you can design a study, you can just take an animal, and you can compress or do something to the neurons, and you can create this similar pain experience, or at least the behavior that it assimilates this pain experience in animals, other than humans. And then finally, we have this new, we call it a mechanistic descriptor knows a plastic pain, which is much much blurrier. And perhaps it's more like a waste bin. As it is now it's, it's where you would say we acknowledge that people have pain.   21:24 And a lot of things goes into it. So just like in nociceptive, and neuropathic pain, sensitization is definitely part of it. It could also be part of the note of plastic pain. But unlike the other two, you don't have the inflammatory response that could explain it. And you don't have the neuron damage that could explain it. But the person experiencing the pain could have a similar experience. So what is it really? How do we a scientist tried to understand that pain, and that's what most plastic is at the moment. And there is a little bit of debate that whether or not you can actually use algorithms to diagnose or, you know,   22:09 maybe   22:11 justify at least that you yet the person in front of you are experiencing this type of pain mechanism or pain related to this mechanism, we definitely have a very, very, you know, widely embraced algorithm used for neuropathic pain. And some very, you know, high profile researchers has just recently come up with a paper suggesting that the same can be done for noisy plastic, sorry, for noisy plastic pain. But personally, I don't think we should, because unlike so nociceptive and neuropathic pain, they're both well understood by signs and we can separate them, they are different. So you can have both, but you would have different qualities to it, there'll be a nerve damage in one and there wouldn't in the other, for instance.   23:02 But we don't know about most plastic pain. So it could be changes in your nervous system, it could actually be, you know, increased responsiveness of your immune system in interaction with your nervous system. It could all be all of that. So it could be sensitization, but it could be tons of other things as well. So how can we start when we don't know what the mechanism is? How can we start to clinically differentiate? So I don't personally think we're quite there yet. Although I like the idea that maybe we can at some point, what I'm afraid of, if we start to use these clinical descriptors, sorry, these mechanistic descriptors, as clinical guidelines, is that what happens to the people who are now embraced and validated in their pain experience by scientists saying, Well, we know what you have, it's mostly plastic pain. But what if we made up an algorithm? And we used it for people? What about the people who fall out? Do they need, you know, a fourth descriptor? Are they just weird? Do they have unknown pain? Are they back to the psychogenic pain? So we've come quite a lot of way, embracing the clinical aspects of pain into the pain research world. And I think using you know, these three mechanistic describers, as you know, trying to really differentiate them and create perhaps treatments that is directed at either one. At this point, or especially anatomy is specifically directed at most aplastic point pain. Just because we know something doesn't mean we know everything.   24:34 So yeah, that's that's the issue. There was a bit of off topic. I'm sorry. But it's such an interesting topic. And I think that the most important thing about no plastic pain is that it is a construct that researchers use. It's embraced by the IRS, the world pain Association, the pay Research Association, and it validates that all pain is real. And there's, you know, it's still real even though we can   25:00 not understand it from a science perspective. I think that's important. And I would hate to see that we misuse it. To say that some really has it. And some don't. Because that's just, you know, that'll be I'll be sad. Yeah. And and can't one's pain experience?   25:20 Everybody's pain experiences individualized. But one person's nociceptive pain experience may be exactly like someone's neuropathic pain experience or someone's no support plastic pain experience, because it's in so then to categorize the persons Oh, well, my pain is like this. So it means this, so I can't have this. And I think it can get people a little confused. And when you have more long term or chronic pain, it's like, the the pain is there. Pain is pain. Some people need the the label or categorization, but like you said, Is it is it really helpful? And it kind of leads me to the one of the last slides in your presentation, and it was like pain prevention is well intentioned, yay, thumbs up, sometimes unrealistic, and possibly unhelpful? Yeah. So do you want to expand on that a little bit? And what you meant by that slide?   26:23 Yeah, that's slide was. That was actually the whole idea when, when I started to talk with Dr. Kieran Sullivan about workshop is that we see a lot of people, athletes. So both of us are still clinicians. And we see and we hear stories of a lot of athletes who have been treated and treated and treated again, or assessed and assessed and assessed again. And again, because they have a pain that we cannot objective eyes. So we can't find anything on scans or blood samples or clinical tests. So rather than acknowledging that pain can be there, so let's say nosey plastic pain, those are, there's something going on in your nervous system that gives you this pain, and we don't know what it is, we can't see it, that will be the, I would say the proper thing to do. So rather than doing that, we tend to keep sending people off. And it ends up with too many scans and too many assessments and too much worry. And in that process, we know the athlete is unlikely to be performing optimal during that period of time. Partly, of course, due to the pain, but also due to the insecurity to you know, if nothing is found on the first scan and a second scan that at some point, they probably start to wonder whether or not they're completely broken, or if it's a really rare disease or even if it's gonna kill them. And these are things that we might feed into by overtreating. So, of course, we should try and prevent pain. Statistics suggest that that's quite tricky. And we, you know, it would be great if we could or even perhaps what we can do is give people tools so they can take agency over their pain when it flares up. But having this idea that when you are in pain, you are damaged is very unhelpful. We think. So we really wanted to highlight the fact that sometimes pain is is that it is pain is still disabling. It's that feeling of pain, and nobody can feel whether or not their pain is due to an injury or not, it feels just like pain. But we identify all pain as if there was an injury, when in fact, it's it's quite unlikely that the majority of cases would have an injury attached to it. And just coming back to one thing you said before that it was quite subtle, but I think it's a really important point you made there, which is that all pain is real, it's always experienced as pain, whether that be of any of the descriptors or for any reason, it always feels like pain, and the quality that we attached to it, it's a muscle pain, or it's whatever is something we do it's our perception is our belief about what the pain is. And maybe that's what we need to also address in sports medicine is that disbelief about what your pain is caused by is a potential target for treatment, we call it psychotherapy or psychoeducation. Or, you know, and that doesn't have to be paying neurobiology education that's unlikely to be better than any other good education and listening and embracing. So there's a range of different interventions that are combining or embracing the fact that you need to talk to your athlete or your patient and help them make sense of their pain in a way that gives them empowerment will give them agency over their pain.   29:51 And something that came to my mind as you were saying, oh the pain it's it's in the muscles, the tendons, the bone, it's the joint and can't that all   30:00 So be a coping mechanism of the athlete. So they may say, oh, it's, you know, this is just a muscle strain. It's so it's their way of coping of saying it's nothing I can continue to to move forward. Do you know what I mean?   30:16 Yeah, absolutely and, and I think as long as it empowers them, if you know if you have the pain that you again, think about Dom's, or delete onset onset muscle soreness. That's an empowering pain, isn't it? I mean, I have Dom's, I was doing exercise yesterday. And if you really want to, you know, be good at something, then perhaps Dom's is your sort of reward even, even though it's painful, it should be awful, it might actually feel like a reward. So in that case, you interpret the pain that you are experiencing, as a reward or something you want it to happen. And I definitely think that some would say that this is just a minor thing, again, think about general health and male, you know, older men, like myself, tend to not go into, you know, the GP for what we consider to be minor things, but in fact, that might be killing us. Because we say, no, no, that's nothing, no, that little spot, that's not cancer. And I would say I don't, I don't think it's a lump, it's probably just something that's here this week. So we should be much better at listening to it, and giving it you know, you know, the quality or the, you know, the meaning that it should have. So it's on both ends of the spectrum, sometimes we neglect that pain is there for a reason, and we should listen to it. And sometimes we should understand that the pain is there without anyone really knowing what it is. But it doesn't mean just because we don't have a universal tool that can treat all pain, which is what we say when we say there's no treatment for chronic pain. In fact, there's quite a, you know, a variety of well established evidence based treatments, that can reduce pain, but they need to be targeted, and individualized so that each one find their, you know, their way through their pain. And of course, one way to do it is to go to everyone you know, who has a, you know, any background in health and ask them what to do, probably the best thing to do is to talk to someone who knows about pain, and then get advice about what seems to be working for you. Embracing that the one in this case, the athlete with pain, they have perhaps one or two years experience with their pain, they know much more about their pain than I do. But I can act as a consultant, I can listen to them, I can help them structure, I know what you know, patterns out there. So I can listen for that. And then together, we can try a few things. But over a period of maybe weeks, they should know as much as I do about pain generally, but with their focus on it. And and that should give them you know, with a bit of practice the ability to find out what works and what doesn't. And rather than thinking of pain management, in the case of a sports related pain, as an on off thing, so either it works and the pain is not there, or it doesn't work, it only reduces the pain a bit, we probably should be realistic and say that most people can have reductions in their pain, perhaps 2030, perhaps more percent. But the majority of people will experience from some sort of management of pain reduction. But it doesn't mean that the pain is going to go away. And it doesn't mean that thought is going to be absolutely pain free. But we need to find a balance between the two so that we understand when pain is actually a sign of either injury or possible injury. But also understand when pain is something that might just be part of life. And the best way we can do the most evidence based approach to that would be to find your way through it, you know, in perhaps, together with a   33:56 clinician of some sort? Yeah. And my gosh, I was just gonna say as we wrap things up, would you like to put a bow on it on your talk and at at the IOC conference and to this talk today, and I think you've just done it? I think you'd beat me to the punch. But is there anything else that you'd like to add?   34:18 That, that you want the listeners to take away?   34:22 I think the most the thing that I always want to stress is that people who meet or live their life with pain, they're experts. And we as clinicians, and researchers should embrace that much more. So the patient as an expert, is something I feel deeply about.   34:44 And I think we should be able to understand that as you know, as a scientist, you might know, you know a lot about groups.   34:51 As a clinician, you might know a lot about people who come to you with a similar symptoms, but as a person who have pain, you have two or three years   35:00 perhaps have experience with your own pain. And I think the best way to you know to get all of these together is by everyone being aware that we have different aspects and different competencies, and we should bring them together. And I think that's the best we can do right now. But still, don't give up hope we should definitely try and cure all pain from the planet, but maybe not by opioids. Yes, I would agree with that. And now more and where can people find you if they want to learn more about what you do? Read your research, where can they find you?   35:39 I think the easiest way would probably be to either find me on on Facebook, or go on Twitter. My handle is at MH underscore DK. And I'm also on Instagram. It's at MH DK underscore Dr. Moulton. Whoa.   35:57 Excellent. And one last question. It's a question I asked everyone is what advice would you give to your younger self, knowing where you are now in your life and in your career?   36:09 Remember, things take time to cope with sometimes you have a good idea. And you can't imagine, however, too, you know, you hear something and everyone else knows it. And you're like the only one who doesn't get it. But give it a bit of time. And, you know, I we have a saying that Rome wasn't built in one day. I think it goes in English as well. So give things time and and make sure you stick to good ideas if you think they're good, but also leave them if they're not.   36:37 Excellent advice. So Morton, thank you so much. This was a great conversation. And like I said, your talk at IOC was really wonderful. There's if people want to see his slides, there are tons of tons of tweets with all of his slides and great descriptors. You could go to IOC p r e v 2021. That was the hashtag for the conference. And as you look through, you'll see a lot of tweets from his from Morton's workshops. So thank you so much for coming on and expanding on that for us. I appreciate it.   37:13 Amazing. Thank you. It is a huge pleasure and privilege to be here. Thank you, Karen. Thanks so much. And everyone. Thanks so much for listening, have a great couple of days and stay healthy, wealthy and smart.

Power and Politics in World Athletics: A Critical History (Routledge, 2021) by Jörg Krieger provides the first detailed history of one of the most powerful international sport organisations, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), since 2019 known as World Athletics. The book critically assesses the internal power relations within the IAAF by focusing on the IAAF leadership. Based on extensive archival research, Power and Politics in World Athletics offers a nuanced analysis of the institutionalized strategies that developed as a reflection of the IAAF's interests and aims to create a broader understanding of the global sport system. With only six presidents in over a century of existence, the IAAF's leaders had profound impacts on other international institutions, national stakeholders and sporting participants. Through four sections, the book identifies various key turning points in the history of the governing body of athletics, and explores the IAAF's foundation, the policies of past IAAF presidents, and controversial issues such as doping, corruption and manipulation through a socio-historical lens. The book shows that while anyone could take part in athletics, policies enacted by each president served to ostracize those groups who did not fit into the IAAF's vision of an equal playing field. This book is essential reading for anyone with an interest in sport history, sport sociology, the politics of sport, sport management, sport governance, or international organisations.

So first off, she's a seasoned technology executive. I mean, we're talking 20 plus years. And right now she's the VP of us channel for Microsoft. Now, if you don't know what that means, that means she's in charge of the digital transformation and all the co-selling with partners. She's overseeing that whole program in Microsoft in that ecosystem. And we're talking about $50 billion that she oversees in business. So you're incredible for that number one, and then I got a couple of things I want to shout out because in 2020, she got a whole slew of awards, which she totally deserved. But I want to call out a couple of them for sure. She was the 2020 executive. She got that executive award for impact from linkage. Okay, that's one. Then she also got the global minded inclusive leader award, that's two and then she was on CRN the 2020 women in channel leading fearlessly in times of crisis, and now we're talking about her and all these incredible. And I was gonna say in powerful, they're powerful women on that same, you know, just call out. And so she's incredible. She's founded a number of boards for women in technology, she is always creating opportunity for women in the technology space. And recently, she started this live digital program, which is all about inspiring people with modern mentoring. And so with that she's sharing her wisdom globally to help people thrive in corporate spaces. You have had some incredible heavy hitters on there. I have listened to every single one. Welcome to the show. Lani Phillips 02:47 Thank you. I'm so excited to be here with you. Patti Dobrowolski 02:51 Oh my gosh, now, you know, that is a lot of things that you've been doing. And I went back, okay, cuz this is how I am I have to kind of see what you're about. So I went and watched some of your interviews, you know, at all the different Microsoft events, you know, to hear you and see you. And you're so calm, cool and collected there. All right, we're talking about 20 years. But that is a lot of experience that you have. Lani Phillips 03:17 Yeah, it's a long time. Patti Dobrowolski 03:22 You know, I know it. I know it. So will you tell people from your perspective, I would love it. If you would tell them your story. Like how did you get here to be that VP of the US channel at Microsoft? Come on, that is a long steep climb. I know I work at Microsoft, so I know. So tell me, where did you start? And how did you get going in this direction in tech? Lani Phillips 03:45 Well, where I actually started was I actually decided that I really enjoy technology. So all through school, I just thought, you know what, I really had a knack for math, science and technology. And so I just decided that I wanted to be a part of helping to design the future. And so I actually started off as a systems engineer. So when I joined Microsoft, that was my title. And when I joined, I felt like you know, talk about imposter syndrome and all that I went to work for a big technology company like Microsoft. I just felt like, Oh, my goodness, I'll never be able to keep up the way they were innovating technology back then. So I actually did it for about three years at Microsoft and decided they were having more fun in sales. But I also recognize that it was tapping more into my strengths. And for me, I could really do some of the hard sciences and I knew the technical stuff, but I really love the connection with people and to solve business problems. So I brought those two together, and the rest is history. I just kind of started going into sales. I had a lot success there. And then it kept going from there. A lot of great mentors and sponsors along the way. Patti Dobrowolski 05:06 Oh, yeah. Well, I think you have to in that space, you know, in corporate America, it's all about the networking. It's all about the people and the relationships. So say something about that. So you went to school here in Dallas, didn't you? Lani Phillips 05:22 Yeah, University of Texas at Dallas. I did. Patti Dobrowolski 05:24 I know. I love that. And so you ended up getting hired at Microsoft? Was that here? Or did you go to Seattle? Where were you? Where are you now? Lani Phillips 05:33 So when I joined Microsoft, I was working for a insurance company at the time it was the St. Paul. The St. Paul Insurance Company, St. Paul fire and marine insurance company today is called Traveler's Insurance. Patti Dobrowolski 05:48 Wow. Lani Phillips 05:48 Because they bought that company. And I worked in it over there. And I managed all the IT training, I was out presenting some technology. And a guy who was a technologist, US, a systems engineer at Microsoft saw me present. He said, Have you ever considered a career at Microsoft? And I said, I would love to work for Microsoft. And he says, I think we need you over there. And he basically brought me in, and I had like, 12 interviews, and more interviews later, and I was living in Minneapolis, Minnesota. And they moved me to Houston, Texas for my first time at Microsoft. And that was 24 years. Patti Dobrowolski 06:31 Wow, that is crazy. So 24 years at Microsoft. And so Wow, so you moved around? I know how Microsoft works, right? They just move you around within the organization. And then how did you end up in the partner program? Lani Phillips 06:50 Well, the good news is, we've always been a company that's been friendly with partners, we always we need them our bread and butter is our partners. Yeah. So I've always had jobs where there was no way we could be successful without partners. So I've always worked alongside our partners for many, many years. But what happened was, I actually took a job where I was the chief transformation officer for enterprise business. And while in that job, I was really overseeing a huge shift we were making, we were driving a real cultural transformation around how we go to market as a sales organization. Yeah, while there, they asked me, Hey, you know what we need to make sure when we think about co-sell and partners, who would love to have you come and help us transform that part of our business as well. So that was kind of what brought me over here. And I've been here three years. Patti Dobrowolski 07:45 Oh, wow. But part of what you did coming over there with this is what I read about and listened to you talk about was you started these forums, where you were really listening to the partners to see what was the next wave of the future. Right. So this to me just matches exactly what you're doing now, with your monitored mentoring. This is really where you're trying to take people is into this new mindset, where we're looking at how can we include everybody in what it is that we're doing? And how can you make sure that your voice is heard, because a lot of the people that you have, they're they're really leaders in their space, they've been doing amazing things in their communities, in companies. And they're you're grabbing and gleaning from them all this fantastic information about how you survive in corporate America, because you really do you know, at first you survive, and then you thrive, when you figure out that thriving has everything to do with what what would you say? What is the thriving part of corporate America? Do you know? How do you make that happen? Lani Phillips 08:56 I would say thriving in corporate America, it would be reliant on first and foremost, train yourself to show up as your authentic self and bringing your gifts to work every single day. Patti Dobrowolski 09:08 Yeah. Lani Phillips 09:08 I think two really kind of understand the winning formula to help you be successful. Right. Patti Dobrowolski 09:14 The winning formula? Lani Phillips 09:15 I think it depends on the company. And it depends on the role that you have. But I think that is the quest we're all after. Whenever you take a role inside the company, what does success look like? And has anyone actually achieved that success? And what was the formula they use to get there? Now to the earlier point you're making, I'm a big fan of making sure that we all maintain a growth mindset. And always think about how you can make something better. I definitely have that tendency to want to transform things for the better. I also believe in having listening mechanisms where you can provide a platform. For people to have a voice, to help shape your thinking, because that will help you figure out where you have some common themes and problems you need to solve. And then you can pull together the right resources to help solve that problem. But in the whole world of trying to thrive in corporate America, it really is around freeing yourself to bring the very best of yourself to work, because so many people still hold back. Patti Dobrowolski 10:27 Yeah, it's really fear is a big thing. It's a big thing. I think that part of what we always have to remind ourselves is that we're here to bring our best selves, always. And that if we're holding back in that environment, that's not our best selves. That's our fearful self, right, you know, fear on one side, love on the other. And so if you can step into the place of love yourself enough that you can show up as you and know that whatever happens is going to happen right? Now, when you talk about this, I know that you had some really great mentors, you had to have. So tell me a little bit about, you know, who inspired you to be able to go into that environment and be successful? And then who do you, you know, count on now. So tell me a little bit about your history of mentorship? And then who do you aspire to be now and have relationships with now? Lani Phillips 11:29 Sure. So would you allow me Patti to take a trip down memory lane, definitely talk about a moment where it was probably the most pivotal moment in my life that shaped who I am today. Patti Dobrowolski 11:42 Definitely. Lani Phillips 11:43 And I'm sharing it with you, because the more that I share my story, I have to I can't ignore that because it did shake. And it'll start off a little sad. But it'll get, it'll pick up. So I don't want you to, don't pull out the tissue. So I actually lost my mother at five years old. My mother was a school teacher, she was beloved. And when I say beloved, she was beloved. And cancer took her life. And she was so beloved, we had two funerals in two different states. So we actually at the first funeral, I have one younger sister, my 12 year old mind was just grief stricken, because that's my mother there. But when they give you time to talk about the deceased, a whole bunch of people stood up and lined up around the church, because they wanted a moment to get on the microphone. My 12 year old mind was like, I don't want to have to go through this. I want to go home and grieve the loss of my mother, I don't want to be at a funeral and allow people to talk about it. But each one of those individuals got up and talked about the impact she made on their life. I mean, it was one story after the next about how she challenged them, love them supported them. But at 12 years old, I heard it, but I didn't hear it. You know what I mean? Yeah, because I was sad. And I put a block on. And then I woke up one day, and I remembered just so you know, at her second funeral, same thing happened different group of people, this woman in 42 years of her life, literally touched the lives of every person that she encountered. And, and her funeral, they were talking about her life and the impacts. So fast forward, what's in me and I give my mother credit for that is the desire to serve, and the desire to make a difference in people's lives. Now, as I was on my career journey, it took me a while to find my voice. And it was mentors that came along that really believed in me, and gave me that courage to be able to speak. But I think what happened through it all, is I think time, maturity, and finally just realizing I am not going to go through life, just playing small. Yeah, I just want to show up as the best version of myself and a champion for all people. And you know what, some people are gonna like it, some people are not gonna like it, but that's okay. I'm gonna let my life be an example. But then I think about when this is all said and done, the Microsoft and how long I work there is only going to be a funeral. Patti Dobrowolski 14:50 Blood on the screen. Lani Phillips 14:51 Blood on the screen., the rest is going to be about the interactions you have with people and the impact you've been able to make on people in the world. So I just shifted my energy. But yes, I had mentors that really spoke life into me, encouraged me when I was down. And I've had from men to women they all most didn't even look like me. But you know what, though, the thing that I had, with my mentors, his most of the always focused on the victories, they never really talked about the feeling. Yeah. And that's why I choose to focus on both with the platform I'm trying to create, because I think I would have learned more, had they been willing to share the mistakes? Patti Dobrowolski 15:41 Well, yeah. Because when you look at where things aren't going, well, then you get this opportunity to improve upon it, right? Yeah. But you know, I wonder too, like, you're really a superstar in that space. And what's true is, you you have this way of being in the room where people really pay attention when you speak, you know, I've been in those meetings with you, where you open your mouth, and everybody just boom, shuts down. And whatever they're thinking or saying, so they all ears on you. And I think there's a piece of it. That's confidence that you talked about, right, that you had this confidence and built this confidence. The other thing that you're talking about with this experience is that, and I love this is that you put that wall up on all of that good stuff about your mom, because you were 12. And you couldn't really take it all in because the grief was overwhelming. Then you said that at one point, then you crack through that piece of it. And you realize you weren't gonna play small anymore? When did that happen? Was that something that happened in the last five years? Lani Phillips 16:51 I would say probably happened in the last year. December. I didn't put a timeframe on it. Yeah, just being more intentional about how I show up. You know what, when it happened, also, I realized that I had more years behind me than I did in front of me. And I said, What am I going to do with the time I have left? And I also said, I've been heads down, working hard, chasing excellence, chasing the next big thing. And I still am driven by, but why? Who have I helped? What am I doing to help others, I just kind of woke up and said, You know what, I need to quit playing small and share more of my experiences. And I became an enormous champion for women. And I was just talking to my new EA about this, I do not like to see any woman disrespected. And I will immediately meet and challenge that. Patti Dobrowolski 17:57 Me too. I was in the airport, the guy in front of me was given the woman behind the counter, uh, you know, she was taking too long to make us latte. And I said to him, hey, wait a minute, you cannot treat her that way. And he said, I can do whatever I want. And then he stormed off. And I thought, okay, and then I just turned to her and said, You don't ever need to take that from anybody and just know that women, we got your back. And so and that's what's true, we have to have each other's back now, especially you're in tech, you know, and there are so few women in tech, there just are because it's taken over by this huge space. And we have to claim our place there. Because as we go into augmented reality, you know, and AI, we have to make sure our voices are represented, or everything that we see and experience in the world is going to be from the male perspective, which is not going to be a good thing. Lani Phillips 18:56 Is not going to be a good thing. And I think the other thing that helps shift me is, there's all of these micro aggressions and things you've experienced over the years that you've just grown accustomed to ignoring. And I think I also got to the point where I was just tired of being sick and tired. And said, The only way this is going to change is if I insist that its changed. So that means I've got to show up, that means I've got to use my voice for good. That means I need to be willing to call things out in a respectful way. But yeah, so I've had to have those conversations around intent versus impact. Your intent may have been good, but let's talk about the impact that it had on me and others. Yeah, you've got to be willing to have those conversations in a way in which people can hear you. But I've just decided that with the time I have left, I'm going to make a difference with this platform that I've been given. And hopefully, open the door, extend a hand do whatever I can help as many people as possible. Patti Dobrowolski 20:01 Well, and I would say just with your modern mentoring, you know, your live stream of that. It's so engaging like you've had, you know, you had last week, we had Toni Townes Whitley there, right. She was so incredible. And she spoke to this microaggression and that she was sick of it, you know, and that she'd had it, right. And I think that we have to be sick of it in order for it to change. And then we have to speak up about it in a respectful way. But this is what is a quote off your LinkedIn profile, which I love, and I want to read it because you say, as a champion for all people, I'm passionate about transformational leadership, and committed to empowering people in corporate America. But here, transformational work is not transactional, but behavioral, it is behavioral, and and for so long. We've treated all the DNI stuff like its transaction, you know, it's number of people, it's number of its color people, but it's not. And in order for us to shift, we have to understand really speak to that a little bit. So what this means? Lani Phillips 21:10 Well, I can give you some examples, I think you've seen companies all over who really hyper focused on D, they say DNI, but they really hyper focus on the diversity piece. And so they actually get the numbers. So they bring in more women, they bring in more people of color. And they bring in people with many different backgrounds, and then they start counting. And then what happens is year over year, you start to see those numbers go up, but then they drop, they go up and they drop. And what I started observing, and what I experienced personally, is you're more concerned about getting me here and checking the box, you really haven't invested the time in creating an environment where I feel like I'm seeing valued and heard. And I have a sense of belonging, and where I feel like that I can really grow my career here. And that's inclusion. And that's the piece that I think a lot of people are missing. And when you think about the statement, you may know, diversity is not transactional, but it is relational. You've got to build a true connection and relationship with people to understand what's important to them. And it means you have to meet them where they are at, yeah, understand what support looks like for them, and then demonstrate some compassion and move into action to connect them to resources and things that they need to help them be successful. Patti Dobrowolski 22:28 Yeah, yeah. I think that this piece about connecting them to the resources that they need, like, I think there are so many assumptions made out there from one perspective about what people need. So if we just get this person in place, and they can support everyone that comes in. No, really what we need to do is to begin to open our ears and ask questions, and be willing to fumble around in there, you know, you got to get dirty in there and make mistakes in order for you to learn and grow. And I think now, you know, the interesting thing about everything that's happened in the the whole environment out there, I think that part of what we have to do is realize. And I think I've realized this as I get older, you know, I know so much less than I think I know, you know, before I thought I knew so much and now I've realized, no, I really do. What do I understand about love? And what do I understand about compassion? And what do I understand about listening? And people from around the world? How can I really be in a listening space? And I think that's part of it. You know, you have to ask questions, listen more, and do your own homework. Like don't expect people to do the homework for you. Right? Come on. Lani Phillips 23:45 That's powerful. That's powerful right there. Because it's true. You've got to take responsibility for your own learning journey, too. Yeah. And part of that learning journey is being vulnerable enough to admit you don't know, and to ask questions, and to do your research and to learn, and I'm with you. I think every day I'm given another day to live. I feel like it's another opportunity to learn something new to try anything and it's changing so quickly to right? Patti Dobrowolski 24:15 Right, right, every day around change. Well tell me what is a day in the life of Lani Phillips, what is your day look like? You know, before we got into the podcast, you asked me what my day look like, I'm curious, what does your day look like? Are you just meeting to meeting to meeting? What do you do in terms of your own personal rituals, so that people can understand what it takes to be able to be responsive to listen to be able to pivot when you need to? What do you do in your day to keep yourself balanced? Lani Phillips 24:46 Well, I'll talk about the day because that's different every day. But I will tell you that my mornings and the reason why I say my mornings are sacred is because it sets the tone. And I've learned that I've got to build it time to make sure that I honor that space of myself. And what do I do? Well, a lot of people chuckle, but there's a few things I do, the first thing I do is I usually have a spiritual practice that when I rise, I usually spend some time in a space of gratitude. And just really thinking about the things that I'm grateful for. I do tend to get up every day, and make sure that I do something that inspires me. So I listen to a podcast or listen to music, whatever I'm in the mood for, I listen to an audible, I may read something that I enjoy a book that always have to do something that lifts my spirits. It's just something that I just look forward to, even when I'm traveling, and I've been on the road the last couple weeks, I actually do it even when I'm on the road. I do believe in that. That mindfulness space where you do the deep breathing, I have found that I have to find a way to quiet the noise in my head. Just quiet the noise of everything I have to do and just sit is. Yeah. And it's amazing how much clarity you get when you're done with I also a big planner for the day, what are the three to five things that I must get accomplished? Now, this might surprise you. That's one other thing that people are surprised by. But every day, I say what's going to be my intention for the day. And who's the one person that I want to touch to see if I can make a difference in their life every single day. Patti Dobrowolski 26:37 Now I see how you pull that through your genetic encoding from your mom. Wow. Lani Phillips 26:43 I love it too. And it always makes them smile. If they don't I get as much from it as they do. But for me, it's just my way of, again, planting seeds of just goodness out there and hopes of it coming back my way now was the day starts girl, let me tell you, I go from meeting to meeting to meeting to meeting. And you know, we're in this virtual world today actually had three presentations. And, you know, even the best laid plans I even had one of them had a complete lack. Right and build presentation. I'm like. Patti Dobrowolski 27:19 I've had that happen before. Like I've been the keynote speaker and then the dogs start barking, like crazily for the Amazon truck that's pulled up, right. So you know, there's all that stuff. Wow. Okay. And then what do you do to decompress at the end of your day? How do you do that? Lani Phillips 27:37 So actually, believe it or not, I don't spend as much time catching all the program. So I try it. And first of all, I'm married, and I have a son. And so my husband James and my son, Brian, and I used to try to love on them for a few minutes. But we've been together so long through this pandemic, you know, they might have about 15 to 20 minutes for me, and then I moved on to something else. So I just try to love on them. And then I just go back to my zone, my zone is follow up from the day and look at my list, see what have I accomplished the things I set out to accomplish? I started thinking about what is it I need to follow up on and I try to get to it here lately. Since we've all been in digital overload though, I've really been struggling with the volume of email, and how what kind of new rhythms can I put in place to get to them all? Because I literally checked, I'm getting anywhere from 100 to 110 pieces of mail a day. That's a lot. Patti Dobrowolski 28:37 That's terrible. Yeah, that's terrible. And to have to respond to all that. Well, and I think to in your role, there's some things that you really have to respond to. So you get or you get red, yellow, green on that, you know, you can color code them and tell people. Lani Phillips 28:55 There's you tried to but I'm still, you know, because it's dead, the volume has grown because everybody's resorted to email or communication. But I do try to have that quiet time away from the technology too. Because I do need to be able to decompress and get the required amount of risk. I am at that point now where I need anywhere seven, eight hours. Patti Dobrowolski 29:17 Wow. And you are you getting that I am so now when I get seven, seven and a half. Lani Phillips 29:22 Seven. seven. Yeah, I can get seven. I can get seven, love to get eight. I don't need 10 That feels like it's a little too much. But I am grateful for my sleep. It does. It does a world of makes a world of a difference for me. Patti Dobrowolski 29:39 I've been using my sleep to solve problems. This my new thing I actually I've done it for a long time. But I take that into my dream state so that I get an answer in the morning when I get up. So I'll write it on a three by five card I'll put it under my pillow. And then when I get up first thing, whatever the dream is about then I write that down so that I can see it, unpackage you know, because the, you know, your dream sensor will get in there and it scrambles everything because it doesn't want you to know truth. But that's when all that really quiet time in the morning, you know, allows your creative genius to unravel and set the tone. So I love that. So you, you get up, you got your ritual of gratitude, and then you set your plan for what you're going to do you do something that inspires you that you get into the rhythm of the day, whatever that is. And I hope that in the middle of that you're doing some jumping jacks and stuff like that. Lani Phillips 30:31 You know what that is? You need the exercise part, let's just say, America, gym, I am not perfect. That is something I have not been as consistent with. And I in every day, I'm trying to get what they say 1% better. Patti Dobrowolski 30:47 That's right. It's 1%. Well, and then I got hired by swift to do some work with them. And they're an indoor cycling thing. So I had to ride to take pictures of the landscape in the digital space. So I knew what it looked like. So I could draw it. So I was like, Okay, well, now I got to ride up Mountain Vaughn, too. And that and then I made it halfway up. I'm like, forget it. I'm going back down now. Lani Phillips 31:14 I love it. Patti Dobrowolski 31:15 So you know, you got to marry business with pleasure. And with workout, you know, make your meetings a walking meeting, get on your phone. Lani Phillips 31:21 We do active meetings, we do active meetings. I don't know if you've ever heard of that. But yes, no PowerPoints, and you just do something physically, you know, to get your heart rate go. And we've done that as a team. And that's been fun. Of course, now starting to weather is starting to change. So we're gonna have to do it indoors. Patti Dobrowolski 31:37 But that's because you're in Chicago. So be chilly there. Now tell me. So tell me a little more about your goal for modern mentoring. What is it the vision that you have for that? What do you see? And what's the impact that that's having that you're experiencing? I'm seeing your numbers go up in the view. Lani Phillips 31:56 Yes, they are going up. So you know, so funny, the reason I started modern mentoring, is because during the pandemic, there were more requests for people don't want one on one mentoring. And I just didn't have any more hours. So I had to come up with another solution. And in my sleep, it was like, okay, you've got this oddness with social media that you got to get over, right. But you have this dead strong desire to help. Yeah, why don't we try to use the technology to scale mentoring. That's really where it all came from. And then I was like, Oh, that's very modern, so called Modern mentor. And I found the one wrote a book on it. And I was like, whatever. Patti Dobrowolski 32:38 Whatever. Lani Phillips 32:41 To me, I guess I didn't read that book. So I was trying to figure out a scale it. But here's what happened. And I ended up really, it was just a project. And then I was seeing that it was really helping people and they were getting so much fun. And I was getting these emails and voicemails, trying to encourage me to keep going. And now I feel like I'm really doing something that may turn into a movement, and I hope more people start to do it. So my vision now is one to just continue to bring the collective wisdom. This is not about money. This is about we can learn something from each other. And let's have a conversation about just some of the unique challenges people face when they're in corporate spaces. And let's be willing to share what's worked. Let's also share what didn't work. And let's do it in a format. That's just a few tips that you can go in and take what applies to you. And so my vision is for this to be a platform that continues to grow. Yes, I've been approached about making it a real service, right, and moving it to technology where we can actually have a full platform behind it. I've had people raise their hand and say, let's do that. I've been asked to turn it into a talk show. I think I'm up to about a dozen times that's come up. They want to see me do a read table talk concept. I'm like be and Bill it. I am a team of one, I have two volunteers and that's it. And the volunteers only helped me during the when I'm trying to brainstorm what to do. And they helped me with the captions part of the interview and pull up those captions. And so I've got a I have so many people now that are leaning in. Hey, Lani, this is something special. I want to see you do it more, though. I think what I'll do is I'll just bring together a small group of people, and then we'll figure out how to scale this thing even more. Patti Dobrowolski 34:45 But here's the thing, you know, I listen to different podcasts and I listened to people doing interviews and what I love about what you've done is first you did it just you and then you were mentoring people in the conversation while you were getting your feet wet. I mean, really what I loved about it was you were really transparent about you didn't understand what was happening, the technology was. And like that, right? And then you started to have people on with you. And then like, now I see oh, you see, now she's hitting her stride. Because I think for me, having you here is amazing. And the conversation that you get to have when you have somebody one on one is really incredible. And what you've added to that is questions from the audience, right? So that they can ask you anything, and your guest anything. And I think that is really valuable. So I would encourage you to, I would like to see what your read table would be like I would, I think it would, might be something around the scariest moments, you know, like things that have really gone awry, or the really hard conversations that we have with, right. That's what we need in in the corporate setting, is a lot of that to break through. But what I will say and I want to call this out for the listeners is so she had this idea about it, and then she put it into practice, she knew it was her Achilles heel, it wasn't something she wanted to do to get online and look at how fantastic she is. And you ought to see all the headshots she has. They're incredible. And I hope that you put them in your Instagram feed and that you get somebody who can because they're amazing. And what's true is that, so then she scaled that as she went, and this is how you really begin to pivot into and lean into the things that you think are calling you, but you're not sure you're capable of doing them. Right. Lani Phillips 36:41 Absolutely. That's exactly what it was. And I always have is leaning into my discomfort, but I was really reaching for the desire to help so many more people. And I had to get comfortable with this medium that I was still you know, there's digital native and the digital adapter. I'm more of a digital adapter, because I didn't grow up on all of this technology, right social technology. So it was something that I just had to get comfortable with. But I knew I had a heart to serve. And I had a heart to share my story. And I had a heart to get other people's stories out there. But to your point, if I didn't move it to a bigger platform, the thing people want is they want that interaction with me. So I think we'll see where it goes. This is what I told the last person I said it to me, I said, I surrender, whatever is supposed to happen will happen. Here's what I will commit to you, I'll keep doing it. And eventually, the resources and all this together, and we'll figure it out. So we can scale it even more Patti Dobrowolski 37:46 well, and so and even listen to that. So this is a tip to for all of you that are listening, you know, you can make the greatest plans in the world. And you can also learn to surrender to what is and what will happen, it doesn't mean that you're not going to do the work to figure out the technology, it doesn't mean that you're going to pull together the team to give you the ideas, or that you're going to have to stay up late and figure out what you need to know or get someone to teach you what you need to know in order to move forward. But the truth is, is that in the end, you have to surrender it up and let the universe open the door for you. Because you can't see what's out there, you might have painted the you know, and I'm big on painting a picture of the future. But you don't know everything that's going to happen in the future. So that's why I say start with how you will feel at the end of the change that you're in or how you feel when you are reaching. You know, so many people through this, whether it's a bunch of teams out there doing and you're helping them and giving some tips on how to do it or whatever it is right. But that you surrender it up, I know, tell me just a few tips for people that are listening in about how they can pivot and grow themselves in in the modern world anything that you would just share any additional points because you shared so much already. Lani Phillips 39:11 You know, pivot in this more digital world? You know, I would tell you, first and foremost is you've got to pay attention to the changes that are happening in front of us. Let me give you an example. Right now, when you think about how do I stay up on things. One of the areas that I recognize that is not going away anytime soon, is being able to work in this hybrid. And we all know this pandemic has gone on longer. It's at different stages, no matter where you live in the world. And I got to figure out how do I drive engagement within my organization? And how do I have deeper connection. I came across a lady by the name of Erica Diwan who actually wrote a book on digital body. And I had an opportunity to hear speak. And the thing that opened me up was the fact that we all have digital technology, this digital world, but how do we create trust and connection? And how far reaching it is? Because we all think it's through email, or we think it's through video. But it's all in how you send an email that greeting how you connect, how are you demonstrating empathy. So it's forcing me to have to really sit back and really reevaluate. What does it mean to connect, I think someone who wants to pivot, based on everything I said, you do have to pay attention to where things are evolving and changing, and invest the time and just getting smarter about it. Like you said, the older I get, I realized, I don't know a lot of stuff and a lot to learn, because things are changing right before our very eyes. So I would encourage you to pay attention, look where you see trends going, and then figure out what you need to go learn. And then I'm going to learn a lot about digital body language. Thanks, Erica. But then what I'll do is I'll adapt, because I'll have my own set of experiences, right? Patti Dobrowolski 41:15 Yes. Lani Phillips 41:15 And then I will figure out what works best for me. And then what am I going to want to do? Pay it forward? Patti Dobrowolski 41:22 That's right, you're gonna want to show us how they can do it. I love to share what other people I'm so I'm like, so excited. Lani Phillips 41:29 But I think for people who want to transform, I think, first of all, just see where the trends are going. You got I also tell people take inventory of yourself, you know, what are your strengths? What are those towering strengths you have? What are those gifts that no one can do better than you? And then what are those areas? Patti Dobrowolski 41:50 Yeah. Lani Phillips 41:51 some of that stuff, you can just let go of and surround yourself with people that have strengths in that area. But I really do believe that once we get clear on the things that are our special gifts, if you invest in those where they'll become towering strengths, and you'll be able to live that be how you earn a living. That'll be how you live your life and share with others. Patti Dobrowolski 42:13 And then you become your legend. Which is really, that's it. That's it in a nutshell, really, you got to pay attention to trends, you got to really put your attention on your strengths. And know that you know, the thing about the world is there's only one you bring that you bring what you have, and then do this thing that Lani is talking about, which is be in service to all of life in that space, help and impact people day by day, it'll small things add up to big change in the world. So you got to be the change. You really do. And I love you so much. I just think you're incredible. And I think that people are going to go crazy over this podcast and all the tips that you dropped and your stories are so moving. Thank you so much for spending time with us. And I just can't wait to see what else you're up to. So everybody, please follow, you know, modern mentoring with Lani Phillips.
