More Than Common Unifying Factors

Community Building

Relationships develop most naturally in the company of like-minded people who share an interest or passion.

It is a good starting point, but we must realize that meaningful relationships require more than common unifying factors.

The best networkers and community leaders spend most of their time empowering others. They’re building trust. 

Because when we have trust and believe in something, we’re way more likely to participate and contribute actively. 

This way, a community network will actually reward in the long run.

How to build trust? 

  • Empathy
  • Creativity
  • Authenticity
  • Striving for progress to inspire.

But the most important thing is to know what is going on in your environment.

But do we achieve so much more by making everything bigger? Sometimes people tend to focus so hard on making everything bigger that they lose sight of what’s really important.
