Manning, G., Curtis K., & McMillen S. (1995).  Building Community: The Human Side of Work.
Group relationships satisfy social needs for belonging. Scott Peck explains that the members of a group who have achieved genuine community take pleasure—even delight—in knowing they have done something together, that they have collectively discovered something of great value, that they are "onto something" as a family There is nothing competitive about the spirit of true community. To the contrary; a group possessed by a spirit of internal competitiveness—member against member—is, by definition, not a community. Competitiveness breeds exclusivity; genuine community is inclusive, meeting a basic need for belonging. (p. 285)
Bennis, W. G. (1999).  Old Dogs, New Tricks: On Creativity and Collaboration.
"The longing for community is born in all of us. Too few corporate leaders understand the depth of our craving to be part of something larger, and even few understand how to tap that longing to turn individual workers into a cohesive, productive group. And yet it is only in such groups that the increasingly complex work of the modern corporation can be accomplished." (p. 47)
Schrage, M. (1990).  Shared Minds: The New Technologies of Collaboration.
"As William James wrote in Great Men and Their Environment, 'The community stagnates without the impulse of the individual; the impulse dies away without the sympathy of the community.'" (p. xxiii)
