- Share what’s working, what’s not
- Ask for ideas or support with a particular challenge
- Connect with a mentor/coach, or offer to serve another expansion leader as a mentor/coach for a particular need.
- Be an informal, yet creative and vibrant resource for expansion leaders at any point on their journey
