HIDDEN BRAIN: "Al Alda Wants Us to Have Better Conversations
A fun discussion about what makes better conversation, particularly interesting to those who know something about the craft of acting. I really appreciated how the conversation illuminated how empathy and listening to what the other person are saying are key. It' so easy to get consumed with the desire to be understood in the middle of a miscommunication- so it is no wonder it is hard to empathize with the other in a moment like this. But this conversation suggests that we are better able to get our point across if we think about where the other person is coming from and what might appeal to them.
