What do Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Teresa, Simon Sinek and Brené Brown have in common? They all understand the power of community, or “belongship” as Sangram Vajre defines it in his talk at Leadercast 2020—Positive Disruption. “The best of the best leaders in the business world, and the world of influence, understand [belongship] and implement it,” he says. “Without a community, you are simply a commodity.” Belongship is about creating a community based on trust, safety and care, and the way to achieve that on your team is to have the following four key attributes.

My biggest takeaway from this weeks session is that your community is everything. Going out and being a part of your community, represent them in the best way possible, and remember that they are the driving factor in your success helps you to reach the "promise land" that is your collective vision.

In reference to the power of community, I can see where Sangram's perspective differs from much of the Western world where the focus is usually on the individualistic "me, myself and I" versus the "we" of community. It was inspiring to hear the examples of how when opportunity and community meet, that’s when Belongship happens. Those companies with a compelling social marketing message became successful because they were on the same page about what mattered to their customers, resulting in a broader collective appeal. Thus leaders have to be really in touch with what matters to their audience.
