Three Steps to Building Successful Communities

No matter that Margaret Heffernan talks about what makes successful companies. What she found applies to communities as well, to communities like our Passionist Partners. She answers my (I hope our) questions regarding what we have to do to turn good ideas into great ideas, more importantly, what we have to do to grow a successful community.

She also identifies what doesn’t work, i.e. competition, super stars and high IQ’s. These ingredients she tells us, lead to aggression, disfunction and waste. This is not just theory. She backs up what she is saying with studies and case histories.

I’d list the ingredients for you, but Margaret does a much better job. Enjoy!

We are a community of laymen and laywomen who, with vowed Passionists, seek to share in the charism of St. Paul of the Cross through prayer, ongoing spiritual formation, and proclamation of the message of Christ Crucified.

    1. Thanks Evan. I hope someday we can meet. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your comments. They keep me going when I think this is all for naught.
