When you’re 100% aligned and clear on your values, you create safety for your community. – Patrick Francey
The basis of any strong community is a feeling of safety and belonging, and an environment that allows people to be transparent and authentic. As thought leaders we often overlook that this sense of safety comes from the values of the community, and who we leave out of it by intention.
When we are crystal clear on our values, we’re able to organically attract people who buy into them and also naturally repel the people who don’t fit in with those values. It takes courage to own our leadership and the values of the community we want to create, but it’s necessary. Without the foundation of a strong value system, a community and culture can’t sustain itself long-term. How can we lead our communities more effectively by putting our values at the center of everything we do? How can we keep a sense of community afloat without live events?
In this episode, I’m joined by CEO of the Real Estate Investment Network Ltd and host of the Everyday Millionaire podcast, Patrick Francey. We talk about what it takes to build a community and a culture that is led by values, and why that’s an important part of thought leadership.
