#ClubChat: What's your community super power?

Alt Text

Last week @erica wrote a brilliant blog post about how community pros need to get better at sharing their wins. So we thought we'd make a little space for us to do just that!

What makes you a great community builder? Or what's something you've achieved lately that you're really proud of?

I've had to either take point or play direct support to some very public (and not so great) things that have happened in communities, which has given me a lot of experience in crisis management and keeping a level head under extreme situations, and navigating communities through those times. Not a ton of people have that sort of experience (which honestly is a good thing in the grand scheme of things, because that sort of trial by fire is not fun), so this has given me a relatively unique position and community "super power."

you know I was just thinking about this... that since young age I was always trying to bring people together to do stuff/learn things together. Wasn't until a few years ago I actually started to understand that this could add value for businesses.

I think I'm a great community builder because I'm like social chameleon that adapts to my audience. Makes people feel comfortable talking to me and hence feeling included in the group... Now I just need to figure out how to quantify these engagement/relationship I build :)

People tend to call on me for โ€œbig pictureโ€ things. Whatever that means, I think thatโ€™s my super power.

Ability to connect peers to solve a problem is my super power!
It's not about how, but who could me the best in this situation?
