Building Community

Seth Godin has a thought-provoking post over on his blog about "intentionally building communities." Godin argues that we should create opportunities within our organizations for people to identify closely with a group of colleagues. Interesting projects or experiences, even if short term in nature, can become opportunities not only to accomplish a particular task, but perhaps more importantly, to build bonds that will last for years. These connections can be instrumental to performing far more important work in the future.
