A focus on the building community is more popular today within organizations than ever before—mainly because community creates satisfaction and a sense of feeling at home. While most research focuses on the economic benefits of building community within the organizational and leadership fields, using a sociological lens brings forth the extensive knowledge learned about how community functions—more like a family.

Research shows that a feeling of community builds satisfaction with where one is and attachment to that place where community exists. Join me and my guest, Kirk Young, as we discuss how servant leadership helps organizations build community.
