Keeping Jackson a Strong Community

November 27, 2018

Lori Weir, Relationship Architects, talks to area leaders in Jackson, TN about Strong Communities.

Community leaders in Jackson, Tennessee joined together recently at the Jackson Chamber to find out what the program, “Strong Communities” is about. This is an effort to keep Jackson strong and continually make it the place for a better education, jobs, health and wellness, a great place to visit and live. “Strong Communities” is a program guided by Lori Weir and her team with Relationship Architects.

“I can’t begin to describe how excited I am for my home town to be the epicenter of this global movement focused on what is OH SO RIGHT with our people, says Lori Weir, chief executive operator of Relationship Architects. “The reception from West Tennessee leadership on an approach to community engagement that celebrates our differences as advantages is inspiring.”

The program centers around diversity and focusing on everyone’s Unique Genius, playing to the strengths of leaders and citizens in our community and what they can bring to the table. Everyone in Jackson-Madison County has a talent and a strength that can be used to keep our area strong and make it better.

Charles Adams, acting president for the Jackson-Madison County African American Chamber, was one of the leaders in attendance. Adams said, “Any program that can help bring a community together is a wonderful thing.” He went on to say that he believes we have the right people in place to help push the community in the right direction.

The next step for this program will be to conduct a workshop for leaders to discover their own Unique Genius and better understand the instinctive talents of other leaders. The goal is to accelerate community collaboration and cohesion as Jackson continues to move forward.
