Kalliergo workshops provide
the experience of Community building
and the tools and education leaders need
to facilitate this process
A Community is much more than a “team” and much more than a group of people with shared interests, values, goals etc. A Community is a safe place where communication and authentic connections facilitate the work of collaboration and learning, where the people feel supported valued, and included.
The Community building work of Kalliergo is the work of relationship building. Now, more than ever, we need to learn how to lead our teams, our workforces, our students, and members of our social groups into Community.
Kalliergo programs are delivered live via Zoom, in fully-interactive workshops.
The programs are designed to address the issues and goals of the client. All programs include one or many of the K5 Components:
- Information. A short introductory presentation is made to members of the organization to introduce them to the concept of Community and to the program. This is done to encourage participation as participation in a Community building program must be voluntary
- Education. This component introduces the frameworks of Community and Community building; what does true Community look, act and feel like; how do groups become Communities.
- Culture. A Culture Self-Evaluation/Tune-up. This supercharges an organization with a palpable reminder of its goals, values, vision, and mission.
- Experience. Whenever we can, experience is weaved throughout the workshop so that the theory becomes palpable. It is hard to facilitate the experience of Community building when you have not had the experience yourself.
- Leadership. This is a deep dive into the frameworks and skills of Community Leadership and how to facilitate a group’s evolution along the Community building path. In addition to gaining Community building Experience and Education, participants will engage in exercises in consensus, critical thinking, collaboration, and problem-solving mastering Leadership from a Community perspective. Note: This Workshop comprises all K5 offerings.
Programs range in length from six hours (in 2 or 3 time slots) to twenty-seven hours (in 18 time slots) depending on the issues and goals of the organization. Ideally, at least Information, Education, Culture, and Experience are included in the Workshop, though the combination of Culture and Experience alone can have a profound impact on an organization.
Participants of Workshops (#s 2 – 5) receive a digital copy of Sounding the Drum: Community Building in the Digital Age.

Master of Organizational Management
In her workshops, Lori introduces Community building, and a very different style of leadership; Community Leadership.
Lori Gosselin believes so strongly in the power of community building that she spent 3 years researching, dissecting, and writing a book about it; Sounding the Drum: Community Building in the Digital Age.
She is the founder and CEO of Kalliergo Community Building Corporation, a company she founded in 2019 with a mission to spread Community consciousness around the globe.
She is also the author of The Happy Place, her first book. In retrospect, she wishes she had entitled her Community building book The Universal Happy Place, as this is what she believes a Community is – something everyone should have in their lives.
