Why building a community with shared mindset is important?

Humans have a tendency to stick with and do things in groups. We’ve been together since the beginning of time. We all have something in common.

A shared passion or set of goals can result from a common interest shared by several people. A community can bring in a man with 17 years of work experience and an intern who is just getting started. It is beneficial to share experiences from various walks of life. Here are a few examples of what I believe the community is capable of:

Effect change

The community can spread the word about design by organizing events, hosting public forums, or using social media. They can also contact local media to tell their story. In addition, the community can identify the problem or change they want to see.

Bring together people with diverse backgrounds and experiences.

Communities have an extraordinary ability to bring people from diverse backgrounds and experiences together. Communities frequently form around shared interests; this is by design for us. These shared interests foster a sense of belonging and allow people to connect with others who share similar interests. By welcoming people from various backgrounds and experiences, communities can embrace diversity and inclusion. Communities can create a sense of unity that transcends individual differences by valuing and celebrating differences.

Opportunity is found in the community

Communities can offer a variety of opportunities for personal and professional development to their members. It can be a great place to network with like-minded people. Being a part of a community can help you meet people who have similar interests, goals, or work in the same industry. These connections can lead to job opportunities, referrals, mentorships, and collaborations, all of which can help you advance professionally or personally.

Talent and ideas are validated

The community can review and evaluate an individual’s work or idea, providing constructive criticism and feedback. This can be accomplished through a variety of channels, including online forums, social media, and professional networks. Working on a project together allows members of the community to observe and validate each other’s skills and abilities. This can be accomplished in a variety of settings, including hackathons, open-source software development, and community-based initiatives.
