The spirit of sharing
- Sharing should be mutually advantageous activity; take time to find out what the other party’s expectations are;
- Don’t take more than you need;
- be honest about what you can share and what you need;
- Take an interest in the work of the organisation you are sharing with, you never know what opportunities you might discover
