Welcome to the COREmmunity

The internet has transformed how we interact with each other and has given rise to the concept of online communities. These communities are virtual spaces where people with similar interests, values, or goals come together to share ideas, information, and experiences. These communities have become an integral part of our lives, providing us with a sense of belonging, support, and engagement. In this blog post, we will explore the value that online communities provide individuals, teams, and organisations and why we at CORE are embracing this movement with the creation of the COREmmunity.

Individual Benefits:

Online communities can be incredibly valuable to individuals. They provide a safe and welcoming space for people to connect with others who share their interests and passions. Being part of an online community can help individuals feel less isolated, more connected, and more engaged with the world around them. The COREmmunity will provide opportunities for personal and professional through online and in-person learning opportunities. Principally, this will be furthering individuals’ understanding of coaching and a variety of coaching methodologies, including the CORE Coaching Module. There will also be opportunities for newcomers to the space to learn from those that have more experience. For example, someone interested in coaching or mentoring might join an online coaching community to learn from more experienced coaches, get feedback on their work, and network with potential employers and business partners.

Team Benefits:

Online communities can also be valuable to teams. They can provide a platform for collaboration, communication, and knowledge sharing. For example, a team of entrepreneurs working on a start-up might use an online community to share ideas, ask for help in securing funding, and provide feedback to others that are going through a similar process. Communities can also help teams build relationships and trust. By collaborating in a shared virtual space, team members can get to know each other better and build stronger bonds. Our aim is to facilitate this with the creation of the COREmmunity.

Organisation Benefits:

Online communities can be incredibly valuable to organisations as well. They can help organisations build stronger relationships with their customers, improve their products or services, and gain valuable insights into their target markets. We plan to utilise the expertise of the members of the COREmmunity to understand what people and organisations need so that we can build it into the space. The COREmmunity will provide opportunities for organisations to market their products to other businesses and customers, creating more opportunities to improve customer support mechanisms and brand advocacy. For example, a consultancy company offering it’s services on the COREmmunity might be able to secure business through the network offered in the space. This might come about as a result of a dialogue created in the COREmmunity where they offer tips on how to effectively embed an AGILE working framework, or discuss new methodologies that organisations may find useful.

Mutual Benefit Exchange Business Model (MBx) in the COREmmunity:

To create a productive and robust COREmmunity, we are going to embrace and apply a mutual benefit exchange business model. This model is based on the idea that all parties involved in the COREmmunity should benefit from their participation. For example, our members might benefit from learning new skills, getting feedback on their work or ideas, and networking with potential employers or business partners. In return, the benefactor would be expected to contribute to the COREmmunity by answering questions, sharing their knowledge and expertise, and providing feedback to others.

To create a mutual benefit exchange, it is important that all members foster a sense of COREmmunity ownership. To help this, we will be involving members in the decision-making process, giving them a voice, and valuing their contributions. We will also provide incentives for participation, such as discounts on courses, opportunities to advertise or host courses on the platform, and possible commissions for driving more people to the platform. By creating a sense of COREmmunity ownership and providing incentives for participation, a mutual benefit exchange business model can help create a productive and robust space.

By applying a mutual benefit exchange business model, the COREmmunity will (hopefully) become even more productive and robust, fostering collaboration, communication, and knowledge sharing.

Whether you are an individual looking to connect with others who share your interests or an organisation looking to build stronger relationships with your customers, the COREmmunity will provide a valuable platform for engagement and growth.
