The Tao of Community Management: Part I

Lao Tzu and Kong Fuzi

“A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.” – Lao Tzu

The more I study Taoism the more parallels I see between Lao Tzu’s thoughts on leadership and my thoughts on community management. My ideas about the value of a “behind the scenes” approach to community building are obviously not new.
