After reading a few books on group creation and management as well as spiritual leadership, I found a recurring theme. Each of them discussed a group of fellow leaders that one could turn to in times of stress and trouble within their own group.
Not having any such community to fall back on locally, I turned to the OPC to provide that. This group is basically there for this. It's a way for new leaders to learn from the experience of those who have been at it for a while (because books on the subject are great, but when certain situations arise, one doesn't always know where else to turn) and for leaders with more experience to post advice for those newer to it.
This isn't meant to be a way to talk about one's group members or those in one's community behind their backs. Some details are needed for advice to be suited to the situation, though. Use good judgement when discussing details about others and your group.
