Creating community where you are/Organization communities

From ICWiki

Organization communities, whether it be a church, civic club, or non-profit, often have particular purposes or agendas they seek to accomplish. Within this framework, their ability to accomplish their goals over the long run often depends markedly on how well they create and maintain a sense of community and common purpose among the people in the organization. A strong human connection helps motivate people to put more time and energy into the organization, and to stay involved longer.

One of the simplest ways to further this intra-organizational human connection is to express appreciation for what someone else has done whenever it warrants it. It is all too easy to focus strictly on the task at hand and forget to appreciate all the hard work people are contributing. For more ideas, check the list on the main page on how to create community in a group.
