Every human being has a longing for belonging. We all want to feel loved, accepted, and validated. We want to feel that our lives matter. Deep down, we want to belong to something bigger than ourselves. We want to make a positive difference.
Today, we are more connected digitally than ever before, and yet we often feel more isolated and disconnected personally than ever. This sense of isolation not only affects our personal lives, but dramatically affects our work life as well.
Studies reveal that 70 percent of American workers are disengaged from their work. Perhaps even more disturbing, 18 percent of those workers are actively disengaged, meaning they are actually working against the success of the company. Not surprisingly, this lack of positive purpose bleeds over from employees to customers and has a serious negative impact on our organizations.

That concept is community, and that’s what The Power of Community is all about. This session will show you how to build a sense of community in your organization that not only will help you engage your team, but will create more loyal and devoted clients in the process, which in turn will create higher returns for your organization.
