This week's Tuesday Reading comes from the August 2008 issue of Triple Creek Association and focuses on a leader's role in building community. In the piece, "Building Community as a Leadership Attribute", Randy Emelo notes that "Building community is not just a nice side benefit of a good work environment; it is a critical and primary activity of leadership." He goes on to note that "Leaders who build community are able to inspire others to share, support, collaborate and communicate with one another in a voluntary fashion in order to achieve something meaningful."
Through the piece, you'll come to understand what community really looks like and what steps you might take to build community in your work environment. Take the self-evaluation at the end of the piece and begin work now to improve your community.
