Community is essential for our growth and development. There are many different communities we each belong to. Sometimes we feel that we are actively part of the community and sometimes we do not. The way you see yourself in relationship to your communities impacts your life and your ability to influence others.
In this lesson, we discuss the power available to us when we relate to our communities from a holistic point of view. Each community is nested within larger communities (holons). We depend on the larger communities as well the the smaller ones we are part of to survive. By relating to the connectivity of all the layers of communities gives us the real sense of being one with everything. It is here that cooperation surpasses competition in effectiveness.
