An organization is a collection of people in common pursuit. Increasingly, people come to work in search of more than a job; they crave meaning and a sense of belonging to something important. Peter Block says that organizations are the new cathedrals. Building community is about weaving relationships, nurturing growth, and caring. To engage your community, polish your skills in facilitating groups, listening, and communicating. Celebrate. Foster the exchange of resources among the citizens, there for a common purpose. You create the context and set the tempo, they fill in the music.
