Strong communities aren’t just happy accidents – they should be purposefully cultivated.
Strong cultures help people support one another, share their passions, and achieve big goals. Successful communities help members grow into who they want to be. Such communities aren’t just happy accidents – they should be purposefully cultivated, whether in a school, a faith institution, or among friends and enthusiasts.
What makes a belonging culture? How is community changing? Author and executive advisor Charles Vogl discusses these questions and introduces fundamental ideas from his book, The Art of Community.
With wisdom distilled from 3,000 years of spiritual tradition, Vogl will help leaders build loyalty, strengthen identity, and create meaning within their culture. He will lay out the inner workings of successful communities and how they work, drawing on real-life examples from both online and in-person groups.
Participants will discuss how to apply the fundamental principles to their specific situation and realize their community’s aspirations. They will recognize the current inspiration and commitment already available. They’ll name principles that can be used to strengthen their real world communities. And they will leave with concrete next steps to create stronger belonging for themselves and others whom they want to bring together for enrichment.
