Show Notes Chapter Markers

Communities are all around us, as are teams, but they aren’t always where or what we expect them to be. When you think about the groups you’re in and the way you interact and collaborate with others, you can see how you’re part of all sorts of communities. And when you’re the one bringing a community together, that makes you the leader. This week, episode 162 of the Positively Living Podcast is about how successful leaders build strong communities!

In this episode of the Positively Living Podcast, my guest Simon Kardynal shares the qualities and perspective every good leader should have and gives you actionable steps to take right now to create a successful community. 

Simon and I cover the following topics:

  • The benefits of strong communities. 
  • How to become a leader who practices active listening. 
  • The many benefits of creating a culture of community in whatever organization you lead. 
  • The different kinds of communities and leaders and how they relate to teams.
  • Why celebrating and analyzing successes are just as important, if not more important, as analyzing failures. 

Community building is like an umbrella. The community itself is the umbrella that protects everyone and everything underneath it. It’s the shell that allows the team to be able to go forward in a safe environment.
