Community OS

Foster serendipity

Communities have people from across the globe and from diverse backgrounds. The best communities make it easy and create multiple occasions for members to connect with each other. These could be designed as 1:1 ,1:Many or Many:Many formats (in small or large groups).

  • Host Icebreaker sessions once a month to get members to connect with each other informally
  • Run mastermind groups - small groups or pods of members (7-8 in strength) that meet every week to help each other brainstorm over ideas and/or give feedback for the same.

"Masterminds played a huge role in me meeting them and getting to know them. The structured nature of it led me to grow with new perspectives, watch other people grow in their journeys, and often they were reflective mirrors of my own experiences." -Janet Yen

"Mastermind groups are insanely powerful. They help build a habit of accountability, community, and togetherness" -Sharath Kuruganty

  • Host Workshops with industry experts. Here are some formats you could use for a community workshop:

           1) AMAs on Slack/Discord or Live AMAs on video
           2) Webinars
           3) Virtual White-boarding learning classes
           4) Product Teardowns

  • Host Office Hours for a more intimate QnA / mentoring sessions with members
  • Host 1:many fireside chats: Fireside chats with experts in the field are open-forum discussions with a loosely held agenda. The broader scope of topic enables wider participation and engagement.
  • Cross-cohort mixers: Learning communities have multiple cohorts of members. Some of these may have graduated while few would be ongoing. Get these cohorts to connect and learn from each other.

"There are three keys to making an event successful: 1. The right people 2. The right space 3. The right content. If you nail all three, your event will become a staple that people will keep coming back to." -David Spinks
