Involvement in Community

“I feel that people are often more open to those that they feel are a part of the community, and have an investment in its well-being and growth. In order to communicate that involvement and investment in a community, one of the things I try to do is get to know the audience to which I am speaking. Many times, you may run into a single person, a stranger, and make conversation as you go about your day. Other times, you may be involved in communicating with a group of people, small or large. I have often found that aside from being invested in the community, it is important to let your audience know how important each person is to the community. People feel validated, and even motivated, when you can pick out a strength in your audience and tie it to the community.”
