Re-conceptualize Business

Business needs to be re-conceptualized as building community.  Leaders within this social system serve as facilitators to manage the interactions between the constituent parts.  In order to work effectively as a community, people need space, a sense they are contributing, and the capacity to relate to others. Inflexibility can disable an organization.

Inclusion

People want to belong and be a part of something larger than themselves.   Creating community is the secret for achieving lasting value.   How do you include people?

Community

What if someone does not want to be part of a community? A person may be friendly and sociable, but they appear to not be interested in developing deeper relationships with the members of the group.  I have found it helpful at these points to simply go silent, listen, and seek understanding.
