Starting A Community of Practice

The question asked was, “how to start a community of practice beginning with the invitation.” It was asked by a newcomer to the Art of Hosting list serve.

A response was posted by Chris Corrigan, some “pithy” principles. Sometimes the pithy are really the best, aren’t they.

  • Don’t get so far ahead of everyone that no one is beside you.
  • Use language that people can understand.
  • Take time to continue learning how things work, and experiment and play.
  • Some things will work.  Don’t get addicted to repeating them.  Some things will not work.  Don’t let them stop you.
  • If you learn something, share it.

Good as gold.
