Humans That Want to be Seen as Credible

Welcome to Elements of Community!

I am your host, Lucas Root, and in this episode, we are going to talk about human credibility and the importance of clearly articulating your purpose. Joining me in this episode is Mitchell Levy, a 2x TEDx speaker, an international bestselling author of over 60 books, a creator of over 20 Silicon Valley businesses, and a Global Credibility Expert.

Mitchell believes that credibility is not a destination, it is a journey. Credibility is your character and other people’s perception of your character.

Here’s just a taste of our talking points this week:

Mitchell Defines an Effective Community

For Mitchell, an effective community is the five elements which are, common language, common project, common value, common purpose, and common heart.

The easiest for Mitchell is the common language which talks about mission versus goals. But having five elements associated with community is a powerful blueprint moving forward.
