Knowing your community and finding ways to relate your message to their story helps to grow your Belongship within your community. Be honest to who you are and present yourself as in the community with them, not as someone who is only wanting things from your audience.

I really liked the Belongship idea. When you work in a public service job, the community is everything. You have to be able to convince the community that you are there to help them. If you are not authentic in your intentions, you aren't going to get much support or participation.

Authenticity is something that is so easy for some and so difficult for others. I truly believe that showing yourself to your team makes you vulnerable- and that is NOT a bad thing. When you share your frustrations with a team- you create a community. You don't just vent to them- but you share in their frustrations and that helps you to form a common bond and a common goal of overcoming those issues and finding new solutions. When your team helps you find solutions and new ideas, they feel more appreciated and included, it brings ownership to them. It makes you a community.

To build a community and to be a leader, it is very important to be authentic because, when you are authentic, people know that this is the real you and that you're not just hiding behind a fake mask. I also think that authenticity connects with the first talk that we listened to by Andy Stanley when he talked about being human and owning up to your mistakes.
