This online community has several benefits:
1) Fluid information exchange. An easier way to transfer information back and forth. Resources will be shared and saved digitally, and stored in online folders, making them accessible at all time times to anyone.
2) Continuous availability. Emotional support doesn't have a timestamp. This group can meet those needs, as a discussion forum that never closes.
3) Greater Access. In much the same vein that telemedicine has helped patients in rural or remote area access care, support communities like this can provide help for uses who may be unable to travel in-person.
4) We offer more anonymity. Some people seeking help and guidance may not want to make themselves known to others, for any number of reasons.
Self Improvement should be a group activity, as we are all on similar paths to excellence. Continuous personal development is fundamental to career, relational, financial growth, and having a broader impact on the world. We create accountability for change and create a laboratory to practice in. The COE community is here to serve.
