How One Shows Up In Community (Ecosystem Building 101)

(Aka Rules of Engagement, Norms or How to play nicely in the sandbox)


Rules of Engagement

  • Break rules and dream
  • Open doors and listen
  • Experiment and ideate together
  • Design for the whole system and all points of view
  • Take our work seriously but not personally
  • Know that done is better than perfect
  • Define and own our next steps
  • Have more fun together
  • Pay it forward

What if success was measured in different ways?

What if impact was about how many community members were actively engaged? How could we see the amount of trust built? Is it possible to gauge the increase of purpose and value felt? What if the purpose of community was not simply to do SOMETHING, but to DO something?
