The Power of Communities in the Age of Paradox – a talk with Rachel Happe

Tackling the task of finding how empathic communication (in the sense of having a conversation based on the needs and wants of the people involved) build effective communication is hard.

But I am not afraid! I have Rachel Happe to help me.

As you will see by yourself, Rachel Happe is on a mission to find that fractal, that simple behaviour that makes communities thrive. Is it the dialogue? Or is it the importance of the content exchanged? Or maybe the ability to see through all these and look into the heart of what we need and want?

In this third episode of the Intertextual Animal, you won’t find a lot about textuality directly, what you will find is a lot about connections and conversations, about people and the ways we can foster communities by, hold on tight, giving up our agenda to control them.

As Rachel told me:

“All complexities are really simple. Just learn to ask people what they think, what they want, what pressures and anxieties do they have to work under […] and both you and they will learn to distill something they could’t easily say before.”

Enjoy the talk with Rachel and stay tuned for a transcript:
