Change, growth and leadership

May 5, 2009 at 4:20 am

I saw this thought on Chris Guillebeau’s blog today:

Whenever a community experiences rapid growth, some people feel left out. New people come in and don’t know the history. Meanwhile, the people who have been around for a while worry that they have been forgotten in all the excitement.

A good leader needs to be able to reach out to new people, expand the pie, while also “keeping it real” as much as possible

I think this is true. It’s not just people getting left behind you have to worry about – you have to learn how to incorporate new people and new influences into your community without completely losing the cultural identity – it’s a hard balance to find.
