Close communities and groups have unique traits, but all share fundamental membership characteristics
Organizations, groups, and close communities are where most social behavior occurs. With our society becoming more detached due to technology and busy schedules, it makes it harder to feel a sense of community. That’s one reason why close communities and groups have become so popular and necessary. And while these collections of people might seem different, each possesses some similar critical elements that define them.
1. They’ve established boundaries
2. They have a sense of belonging
3. They have a defined means of communication
4. They have shared tasks and goals
5. They have a personal investment
Each organization has its own reason for existing. However, the makeup of each group or community is relatively similar. They all have certain attributes that they share, a desire to follow a passion, and the perceived benefit of finding a group to help support these efforts.
