What does it mean to be a radical? Karl Marx had this to say about it: “To be radical is to go to the root of the matter. For man, however, the root is man himself.” So, radical compassion, empathy, generosity, leadership, humanity – perhaps it’s time to be a radical.

Pascal Finette is a founder of a boutique advisory firm, Be Radical, and the ‘posse leader’ at The Heretic, one of my favorite–very opinionated–newsletters. He’s worn many hats throughout his lengthy career, and, to this day, continues to be a learner.

Pascal reads two pages from Kraftwerk by Uwe Schütte. [reading begins at 12:30]

Hear us discuss:

  • “You are the people who surround you.” [3:06]
  • How individuals change: “Make people uncomfortable enough that they feel not only the desire to change, but the necessity. Then–most importantly–give them the tools to do so.” [8:15]
  • Empowering others to create a preferable future. [15:36]
  • Navigating the white savior complex: “It comes down to admitting to not knowing.” [22:07]
