Here are eight kinds of work that must be done to kindle meaningful community, with some examples below:

  • Nano-research - Continuously watching, listening, asking, feeling
  • Inventing - Conceiving settings for learning and connection
  • Inviting - Warmly and non-coercively encouraging participation
  • Nudging - Reinforcing opportunities - gently, persistingly, personally
  • Celebrating - Identifying milestones and acknowledging accomplishments
  • Visualizing - Generating lovingkindness through imagination
  • Weaving - Networking, good introductions, creative convening
  • Living the example - Taking risks so others feel safe to
