Today, there was another great program from Creative Mornings/Columbus that featured Doug Ulman, CEO of Pelotonia. He shared the story of Columbia, MD and how it was a planned community created and developed by James Rouse. Rouse had the idea of creating "intentional collisions" to foster a community that was intended to eliminate racial, religious and class segregation. One example of the planning to bring people together, intentionally, was the mail boxes all being placed in one location that required residents to collide when they went to get their mail. Our communities are not only strengthened by such thinking, they increase our chances of survival. The intentional collisions idea produces similarities to my Hire Learning Leadership program and the intentional networking that leaders should create both online and with the attending of events to create connections that benefit their careers and organizations.
