Radha is a community force. She is an award winning social entrepreneur, advisor and investor and started two different global movements in two different industries, building one of her companies to over 125 million dollars and Daybreaker, the early morning dance movement to over 500,000 community members in 30 cities around the world. She wrote the best-selling book, BELONG: FIND YOUR PEOPLE CREATE COMMUNITY AND LIVE A MORE CONNECTED LIFE, and just went on a 9-stadium tour with Oprah for three months earlier this year with over 135,000 people in attendance. This summer, Radha is launching a text-message based life school to teach people life skills they don’t learn in the classroom called The Vessel: A school to upgrade your human software.
MTV named her as one of eight women who will change the world. While she architects communities and speaks all around the world, her most coveted title is mother to her 16 month old Soleï. She lives in Brooklyn, New York with her partner Eli, and Soleï.
Community Building 101Despite all our “friends”, “followers” and “users”, we are feeling more isolated than ever. Radha Agrawal calls this “community confusion.” She believes leaders need to cultivate their personal communities beyond business. When leaders find support, they create connections (both personal and within their teams), which studies show are our key to happiness, fulfillment, and success.
How to Build Your Dream Community From ScratchTo create community, Radha says you first need to take a look at your values, interests, and your abilities, instead of looking outward. Once you have a good sense of your values, interests, and abilities (your VIA), you start to build your community around these attributes. Radha says that any great community requires an intention of DOSE — releasing you dopamine (pleasure), oxytocin (physical touch), serotonin (sense of belonging), endorphins (moving your body). How can you set up your community so you can trigger these states in people? For her, dance is the ultimate weapon for community building.
