Misconceptions About Community Building

Misconceptions About Community Building

Hosting social events like barbecues, parties, etc., is NOT community building.  This action is an aid to community building but it is simply event planning.

Leaving a gift for a new tenant in an empty apartment or flowers on the desk of a new employee is NOT community building.  Welcoming gestures like these can be preludes to community building but they are essentially hospitality.

Event planning and hospitality are not enough if you want to build a genuine community.  What happens on day two in the apartment, or on the second day at work?  What happens the day after the barbecue?

Though these actions are undertaken with the best of intentions, they’re missing the most important elements of community building.

Kalliergo Community Building programs provide these missing elements with an accelerated, proactive strategy to build community in an apartment building, or condo, the classroom, or the workplace.

Let’s explore together what Kalliergo Community Building programs can do for you.
