Anyone ever put together a “Guide for Members to Make the Most of Your Community?”
I’m interested because I am pulling together a training for future members of CaribHRForum Community (my online forum). It’s intended to teach them how to be a great participant in any online professional community.
Here in the Caribbean, my hypothesis is that we face some cultural barriers which prevent professionals from taking the steps required to show up in these spaces effectively. You probably don’t have this particular challenge, but I think it’s generally optimistic to pull strangers into an online forum and expect them to adapt the individual best practices/habits which lead to a strong overall community.
The reason I’m reaching out is that I have defined a number of behaviors which apply to every professional online community I have ever joined. Perhaps if you know someone who has already done this, I could just piggy-back on prior work!
Or, if you have given these behaviors some thought and written a few ideas, maybe we could share our progress so far?
