During our recent community manager hangout about reflections of 2012, Ally Greer tweeted that Santa is probably the most insightful community manager she has ever met. If you watched the hangout, you realize that Jim Ducharme was dressed up as Santa and Ally‘s reaction was in response to him. That being said, it got me thinking… is Santa the ultimate community manager?
A good community manager listens to the members of the community
Santa reads all those letters from children of what they want for Christmas
A good community manager empowers member of the community to self govern
Santa empowers parents and children to behave during the entire year
A good community manager always knows how to measure the community
Santa makes a list and checks it twice
A good community manager let’s everyone know they’re there without having to be seen
Santa leaves cookie crumbs.
A good community manager knows where to find their community
Santa makes stops at 108 million homes, in one day!
What do you think? Is Santa the ultimate community manager?
From all of us at My Community Manager, Happy Holidays!
