    Member Spotlight Award Nomination Gamertag: KSI Bane Current Clan Ops Rank: 4th CPT Squad & Division: Samurai, DW Current Dept and/or Web Ops Rank: Happy Hour Head, Productions Streamer, Marketing Forums @: @King Bane Reason they deserve this award: Bane is charismatic,bubbly and very approachable. He always tries to make things fun and entertaining for everyone but steps up and delivers when he needs to. One of Bane’s most outstanding values from what I have seen is his attitude towards continuous improvement and attention to detail. He is always willing to to try and help others solve problems even if it inconveniences him and makes himself available to everybody within the community not just his own squad. He is always there to offer advice and guidance when needed and does so with patience and without complaint. During fall classic he pushed to make sure everyone felt involved and included and constantly games with everyone making sure everyone has a good time. 7 Spotlight Award Nomination Gamertag: KSI Venum 7 Current Clan Ops Rank: Co-Founder Squad & Division: DW Current Dept and/or Web Ops Rank: AAP Forums @: @VENUM 7 Reason they deserve this award: Since joining KSI, Venum has been there for me 110% whether it’s to give advice and guidance on personal life issues when i’ve asked for it, or to advise me on how to be a more effective officer. He always makes time for any member regardless of who they are and will drop what he is doing in a heartbeat to help them. Venum constantly encourages others to reach the potential they can’t see in themselves. He’s a kind, genuine, patient soul that is always willing to play a game and run a mission he’s already done 5 times over to help someone else complete it without complaining. Venum is the kind of person that sees the good in everyone and won’t give up on someone even if they seem to have given up on themselves, he’s a great person to look up to both as a superior and a friend.

    Captain America - Explosive Outlaws' KSI iLegacy Why: No campaign a fellow Vendetta squad member petitions his leadership for is too great or small for this defender of integrity to champion. He shows up day or night with his mighty warlock to shield us from the destructive darkness that awaits all Guardians in Destiny 2. He never gives up and will never quit a fellow squad member, even if that Guardian repeatedly falls victim to the treacherous trains in the Prison of Elders. KSI iLegacy stands for something, and that’s teamwork. His squad goals around recruitment and inclusion are never self-serving, and much like Captain America, he never seeks praise for his contributions. His finds his reward in the squad’s satisfaction of accomplishing goals, because KSI iLegacy is honored to be a part of a club that advances alliances and a positive gaming environment.

    Gamertag: KSI Officer Pup Current Clan Ops Rank: General Squad & Division: Prodigy / Crimson Dawn Current Dept and/or Web Ops Rank: Production and News team Forums @: @KSI Officer Pup Reason they deserve this award: The reason, Officer Pup deserves the Spotlight award because ever since she joined Crimson Dawn has gained her respect from our members and has proven her place in Prodigy as a general. Before, she even became a general in Prodigy, she was originally from Empire when I was the general which she helped me too. For example, after TSB hit really hard most of my officer staff was gone and joined TSB which hurt Empire the most. She came in as a SSGT from FI which I let her keep her rank. Basically, helped me rebuild Empire back to a thriving squad. I thank her for that and she knows how much that meant to me. Even if you have a rough day once she joins the party she will have you laughing in no time. Also, any situation that is thrown her way is handled with class and positivity. For example, CD was hit pretty hard by a new Gaming Community called EGC which started to take members with them as they go. She said we will grow and thrive through this even though we knew it was going to be rough. KSI Officer Pup has proven that she is here for KSI through any situation that is thrown her way. I honestly believe that KSI Officer Pup deserves this award for her outstanding performance in not only her squad and division, but KSI as a whole. 7 Spotlight Award Nomination Gamertag: KSI Trendies 7 Current Clan Ops Rank: Director Squad & Division: CD Current Dept and/or Web Ops Rank: Forums @: @KSI Trendies 7 Reason they deserve this award The reason, Trendies deserves the spotlight award for coming into Crimson Dawn with positive attitude and helping us out so much. Even though CD is considered a kind of rebel division from the way people have represented it that way, but he still came in to help us grow and thrive. He has been active with our members helping them with either simple tasks or hard tasks. Even though he hasn't been here long he still have proven that he deserves this award.

    I too shall be a witness for his great work. I, KSI Kommandant, then KSI KLEIN, was Fadez's very first recruit within the squad, Rebirth. He has proven himself on numerous occasions including when he was mentoring others by just chatting in parties or in countless recruiting sessions and these two are just two of many times when his dedication to KSI has been noteworthy. In DR he stressed the importance of quality over quantity and proved it in his, often, hour + long training sessions which for officers nowadays takes about 15 min. He was and continues to be happy to help whenever and wherever he can and the basis for his fine leadership began in Divine Reign.

    I can vouche for this as well. He was the one to convince me to get back into the gaming community world. I was initially recruited into Sacrifice DR but quickly transferred to his newly created Valkryie DR squad due to some disagreements in Sacrifice. I worked my way to getting 1CPT in Valkyrie and behind his leadership we split the squad which allowed me to created Rapture DR and in all reality was the catalyst to the success I created for myself in the community. I 100% back the fact that KSI FadeZ 7 deserves this award.

    Member Spotlight Award Nomination Gamertag: KSI ROCKDOGG Current Clan Ops Rank: GEN Squad & Division: ENFORCER, FI Current Dept and/or Web Ops Rank: N/A Forums @: @KSI ROCKDOGG Reason they deserve this award: he goes out of his way in irl to help use with issues in the squad he also helps other people get recruits on the daily he likes to get his stuff done and for what its worth enforcer couldn't have gotten this far without him. even when he wasn't a general he kept fighting to get stuff done that the higher ups weren't tbh so I really do think that he deservers this award out of anybody in enforcer he takes pride in what he does and u can talk to him about any issues and he will also help u over come them issues overall he is really hard working general and I think that with hard work comes big rewards so this is the time that he gets a big reward. 7 Spotlight Award Nomination Gamertag: Current Clan Ops Rank: Squad & Division: Current Dept and/or Web Ops Rank: Forums @: Reason they deserve this award:

    Member Spotlight Award Nomination Gamertag: KSI Ch4ttyK4thy Current Clan Ops Rank: 3rd Captain Squad & Division: Velocity, Forced Induction Current Dept and/or Web Ops Rank: N/A Forums @: @KSI Ch4ttyK4thy Reason they deserve this award: Kathy has been pushing herself as a member since she joined. I have heard her over the mic training people left and right when she was a baby lieutenant and she kept up her stride and has helped this division in many ways, especially keeping me okay through all the hard times we both have experienced and I know she has the knowledge to help any member who needs her and now shes tackling this squad with me to help us grow like no one has seen! 7 Spotlight Award Nomination Gamertag: KSI BadKitty 7 Current Clan Ops Rank: Director Squad & Division: Eternal Souls and Forced Induction Current Dept and/or Web Ops Rank: - Head of Tournaments and Events - Senior Forums Moderator - Join Area Moderator - Performance Officer - AAP Forums @: @KSI BadKitty 7 Reason they deserve this award: I'm pretty sure kitty needs this spotlight because when kitty came over FI she had NO CLUE that every 7 would leave and that she would have had to deal with the drama of everything. But shes been a huge help to revitalize all the officers here and keep us energized for the long road ahead and if that's not enough she is a key reason why DM runs so smoothly as it does today! She has been a great mentor and friend to me and many others in this community I want to keep learning from her.

    KSI BadKitty 7 - Mad Max

    I will drop my vote to witness, I can personally attest to kitty going bananas during her time over FI since I arrived. I have watched her try to balance being a general , running the division and being a positive role model for the members over there. Having to constantly make sure everyone is okay while getting a few nasty comments thrown back at her. Im surprised she isn't in a mental asylum right now because I know a lot of other people in her shoes having to deal with those circumstances on top of real life, on top of dealing with KSI Ronin 77 all day would drive them CRAZY. She has been through the ringer and is clearly a Mad Kitty.

He communicates with all members and games with everyone and he has been a great asset for CD in our time of need. So glad to get to work with him. He definitely deserves the spotlight for all the hard work he has put in to help CD and fI in the merge and for being an overall really great human being.

    Gamertag: KSI Grifful Rank: General Time in KSI: 3 months Opinion: I is my personal opinion that a squad can be most successful at a split squad type. For starters, games come out all the time and member bases change per game. Its important to keep up with the times to give the squad the best chance at retaining and growing its member base. With a split squad type, no member is forced to play a certain game and have the liberty to switch in between. CoD is obviously the most easiest game to recruit and host events on, but other games can be more fun and bring a higher satisfaction the member base of the squad.

    Black Panther - KSI No Horizon Why:This guy picks up a game or gadget and with in minutes has it all figured out. He studies games, picks them apart, and just grasps them eloquently. To have him on your team can be slightly annoying cause he knows how to operate everything with out effort, but I would rather him on my team than to face him any day. Captain America - KSI Breakfast 7 Why: Breakfast is a fun person to be around in parties and in that good old fashioned way that Captain America is fun. LOL Not a drop lewd about him and sometimes current things can just zip right over his head. Just kidding. As for Breakfast he shares a lot of the qualities of Capt. in that Breakfast too stands tall for what he believes in and fights strong for that which he loves, which is of course KSI. Dr Strange - KSI M3NTALIST 7 Why: Mentalist has this great personality, look I swear he does! lmao All jokes aside just like the Strange he seeks out knowledge to better arm himself as a tool to serve and fight the good fight. That and he can straight look at someone and just know their future and potential in KSI. His way to motivate and inspire can at times feel magical so he can be our sorcerer. Gamora - KSI Hatter 7 Why:Hatter is the perfect Gamora because she is unlike any other woman. Adopted in as one of the"men" in a male dominated community, she pushes hard to pave a new and great road for her family of misfits. As for this family she is a fierce and loyal loving protector but wont hesitate to smack us on the back of the head if we need correction. The Hulk - KSI Blackheart Why:This is the perfect embodiment of Blackheart aka Crucian. When you get to know this guy you know his sweet docile side that is always there looking to make people laugh, not one to bite his tongue and make a joke, but remember he should come with a warning label as you will NOT like it if you make him angry. Anything that you thought you knew about him from before goes straight out the window and he will leave you calling for back up or hiding in the corner crying asking for your momma. Ironman - KSI Killedbyyou Why: Though he has his way around learning all the fun technology as well as figuring out more gadgets for us to kill the enemy. He is the first to laugh and remind me that Im supposed to shoot the enemy not the wall or that running never won us a game. Needless to say he wont forget to remind us who got that play of the game and bask in that spotlight even if it is just temporary. Loki - KSI KaistauNZ Why: Kai has epic plans to take over the world though, though just know that walking through this adventure with him might be a trap. Seriously though, even though he just transferred to our squad I have already learned that you should never trust what he says about lazers. I just know that any time with our Kai will be fun and full of mischief. Star-Lord (Peter Quill) - KSI FnHoagie01 Why: While he may seem to be bop around talking old school smack against other players over coms,Hoagie is a witty and funny leader to any match you play in. He makes the games fun and his hilarious. He is always out to help his comrades and never backs down from a fight even if it is a dumb one lmao. Thanos -KSI Akame 7 Why:Akame wants to take over the world and though you may not know this he will cut the fat to get the perfect one that he wants. Though in all seriousness a sweet guy I would never wish to get on his bad side and find myself on the short list for extermination.

In those time frames I was recruited into DR in the squad Sacrifice. I changed my gamertag immediately and was transferred to Rebirth DR due to the squad recent going through a huge hit from J2H. While In that squad I personally recruited and mentored multiple members while assisting KSI VOLTAGE 7 (KSI BabyJesus at the time) build the squad from the ground up. I became first captain and helped split Rebirth. From that split I was promoted to General and given the split off squad named Valkyrie DR. In 3 months time with my staff I built Valkyrie into a power house squad which then split again into Rapture DR. For that second split I was promoted to the rank of Co founder. From those squads many notable leaders and sqaud splits came forth like Elysium DR and Aseir DR. I was awarded Co Founder of The month while holding the rank of Co founder in DR I also attained the awards member assistance , trainer, OS Level 1, KSI Mentor , LT of the month, and Squad Splitter when it became an award for the previous Splits in DR. I also alongside KSI AIRBORNE 7 and KSI EXODUS 7 Helped build an extremely active division with weekely events and meetings and growth. I left the community and returned to DR in 2014 climbing to the rank of 2nd Captain under KSI GreendayFox assisting her as her second in command in running and building Judgement DR into another successful squad. @Airborne @KSI GreendayFoxox @KSI OSIRIS 7 @The Kommandantantan @KSI Paratroop 7 @KSI Officer Pup are the only members still around who could vouche for any of what I have done for that division over the years

    I can witness for FadeZ and all the work he did in Divine Reign back in 2013-2014. When I joined FadeZ was a Co Founder at the time he just split Valkyrie and earned his 7 also making my original home Rapture DR he was a no nonsense type of guy and you could tell. He was held under high regard by both KSI EXODUS 7 (Div Leader) and KSI THOR 7 (Founder) at the time even when FadeZ stepped out of KSI at the time they still talked about the work he did, and when he came back for me into Judgement DR I was General at the time and he put in a lot of time and effort to help me bring the squad to a speedy recovery from being inactive by KSI Alcorn and from previous members in Sacrifice DR when they merged. That is why I feel he deserves this award!!!

(Also because I've preordered SEVERAL other games). Greenday and I were talking one day and this subject came up. I told her I would have to get it sooner or later since it turns out at least 1/4 of my squad plays this, but it wasn't in my near future due to some personal things going on. I get online about 20 minutes after we talked, and she had gone and gifted the whole flippin game. Totally blew me away. Not many people have the kindness that she does, we are a small breed.

    Member Spotlight Award Nomination Gamertag: KSI Panda 7 Current Clan Ops Rank: General Squad & Division: Hellborn DM Current Dept and/or Web Ops Rank:none Forums @: @KSI Panda 7 Reason they deserve this award: Panda is one of those people that might annoy you sometimes but in the end, he's a fantastic leaders. He helped lay the groundwork for CD and helped it become what it is today. He's very straightforward when it comes to running workshops, meetings, or even gamenights. He encourages activity throughout his squad and others. During a time when we experienced a period of no recruits, he stepped in. In those two weeks, he managed to pull 20 recruits in and have 5 of those recruits becoming officers. But he has a soft side and is always in a party wherever you go. I consider him a mentor to me and I'm sure for others alike. He most certainly deserves the monthly monthly spotlight award 7 Spotlight Award Nomination Gamertag: KSI Scotland 7 Current Clan Ops Rank: Board of Directors Squad & Division: BOD Current Dept and/or Web Ops Rank: Chief Department Manager. Senior Forums Moderator Forums @: @KSI Scotland 7 Reason they deserve the award: Scotland is one of those leaders that come around that changes everything. I consider him an inspiration because of the things he does. He ran AAP for a very long, in which he revitalized the awards to make them acceptable. Not long after, he was promoted to Head department manager. Scotland was a one man wrecking crew. He changed how the departments ran there meetings and how there assignments are setup. He, the BOD, and Skarzx77 helped create the DHOF, which was an excellent addition to the awards. Then he was promoted to Chief Department Manager, taking on Impyys old job. During that time, we had a growth of inactivity among members, we lost 2 department heads, and overall had rough month. But Scotland never faltered. He promoted 3 co heads to heads, to which all three departments received an influx of 15 new members. He is always active and is a party every time he is online, taking care of Department issues while also tackling being on the board. I think Scotland deserves the monthly 7 spotlight.

He has also been giving his members a clear understanding of what he wants and expects, with a lot of guidance on how to do things. He makes Legend a fun and caring place to be. 7 Spotlight Award Nomination Gamertag: KSI M3NTALIST 7 Current Clan Ops Rank: Co Founder Squad & Division: Legend LS Current Dept and/or Web Ops Rank:none Forums @KSI M3NTALIST 7 Reason they deserve this award: When I first joined I didn't feel like there was any interest in the new members, or a drive to get to know the other members. With many of the gens coming and going, I wasn't sure where or what to do in KSI until M3NTALIST became the General. He got the squad together and helped me find the right direction to go, and got me more into talking to other members. In the process of this, he became a good friend of mine out side of Xbox and KSI. As a CoFounder now, M3NTALIST has put forth that same effort into the squads he oversees. He makes sure that everyone still has good communication, but also enjoys their time here.

    I can witness to kitty’s craziness because she takes it all out on people with door knobs. (They hurt truthfully) honestly it’s comes across more of an addiction then it needs to be. Leaving parties and friends that she hangs out with to handle ksi work at all hours of the night then coming back to take it out on gambit in games that we play.

    KSI xKamikaze SGT Almost 2 years Opinion: All squads should be open Game type. Sending to recruit that you’re getting along with and relating to is just a bad option in my opinion. It’s happened many times in my experience.

    KSI VENUM 7 CoFounder 14 Months I believe that squads should be open type just for the fact of KSI is so diverse when it comes to playing games. The big 4 COD, Siege, Halo, Destiny but there are so many others that the members play. So to tie members down to one or two specific squad games is crazy in my opinion.

    SGamertag: KSIDntAskImAwfl Rank:3LT Time in KSI:8 months Opinion: I found this to be a informative read and very much appreciate this topic as I learned a lot from it. My oppinion would be "if it's not broke don't fix it". I can see how the system that is set up is extremely useful because of recruiting purposes and fitting new members into the squad that fits them the most. I do have one recommendation. I believe that if there was a workshop within each division that broke down and explained each squad type in that division and there primary and secondary games to new members the divisions would not seem so disjointed. Included in this workshop could also be the officer staff of each division. So basically an intro to your division's squads 101 workshop. This might encourage members to seek out other squad gamenights when they are just not in the mood for their squads type. Which, if we cut down on members lagtime from KSI interaction we might cut down on fluff within our squads. It also could build unity within weaker divisions and open the floor to addressing the subject of loyalty to your own squad and not taking from others.

    Gamertag:KSI FadeZ 7 Rank:SSGT Time in KSI:about 3 years on and off since 2012. Opinion: personally when I had left the last time one of the things that had convinced me to rejoin was that we changed to open squad types. I liked that I was not forced to play or recruit on a single game and had the option to pull in everyone everywhere. However now o strongly perfer the 2 game type option that at least my division does where each squad has a primary game type and a secondary. The reason for that is from my point of view with the open game types it creates scenarios where KSI billybob got recruited on a specific game that only 1 person plays and then they feel left out because they don't have the games that majority of the squad is playing. I feel with the set game types it avoids that mostly as the members are gonna have one of the two game types. I feel it keeps everyone more united and included to be that way. So overall while I like the freedom of open game type, I perfer the 2 type approach because it's more organized and keeps everyone together more.

    Divisional Leadership Workshop: Management Characteristics & Ensuring Success Workshop Introduction: This workshop is intended for those members of the community that have attained the rank of Co-Founder (CO-FO) through Division Leader, (DIV), and have now become part of the “7's staff”, or divisional leadership team for their respective division. The goal of this workshop is to explore, in depth the duties and descriptions of divisional leadership ranks. The characteristics and core principles expected of divisional leaders, and the steps to ensuring a cohesive and united leadership. Finally, this workshop will also cover how to create, maintain, and sustain divisional growth. The importance of strong leadership on the 7's level can not be understated. As you have heard in previous workshops, squads form the heart of this community. While that remains true, the leaders that overlook those squads, and help guide the members, and leaders within them can make or break their success. While there are certainly outliers, a squad will have trouble thriving in a division that struggles, and visa versa. They depend on one another, and that means theretheir must be leaders on both levels that can live up to, and exceed, the requirements of their positions. Workshop Occurrence: This workshop will be offered on a rotating basis. Specific dates and occurrences will be listed on the monthly workshop calendar created by the Human Resources Department. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Before we Begin (Pre-Workshop Conversation Starters and Discussion Topics) The following questions may be used as a conversation starter before beginning your workshop. It's important to make sure you begin by getting everyone thinking about the topic at hand. What do you think it takes to be successful in a Divisional leadership position? How do you define what a successful division is? What about a successful squad? What does it mean to be a good leader? What are the characteristics that make up good leadership? Is divisional growth more important, or divisional sustainment? In your mind, what would effective short term goals, and long term goals look like for a division? How would you structure an officer staff? How would you deal with officers who are not performing up to par? Before beginning, you can let attendees know that this workshop will share a similar format to the Train the Trainer workshop. At the core of it's curriculum, the same seven principles, some slightly different, but many the same, will be used to address what effective divisional leadership is. To answer the questions above, we will examine them through the lens of the “7 Core Principles of an Effective Leader”: Be knowledgeable in every area of your duties Control the room Energize your members Encourage Conversation Be an active listener Help your members find their “why?” Challenge yourself, and others, to do more _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The Core of the Program (Workshop Topics, Progression, and Key Points) Workshop Curriculum Introduction: The most important thing to recognize when becoming part of divisional leadership, and achieving the honor of placing a 7 in your name, is the knowledge that your rank is not for you, nor does it define you. The most common pitfall for new and rising leaders is their ability to fall victim to their own ego, and the idea that they are now above that of the squad level members, and are entitled to respect because of their rank. This idea is very far from the truth, and is often one of the many gateways to poor leadership, negative stigmas, and poor divisional structure. In fact, when transitioning from squad level leadership (General) to the rank of Co-Founder or higher, you are agreeing to devote your time and service to the well-being of the entire division rather than just one squad. Your entire focus and goal is to lead and serve those members and leaders you are over, as they are this community's life blood, and the future that will follow once you have moved on. This type of leadership requires a trust and respect that is gained, not by a title or rank, but by the actions, words, and commitment displayed by that particular leader. The 7 Core Principles of an Effective Leader: Divisional Leadership Edition 1. Be Knowledgeable in Every Area of Your Duties Upon becoming a full member of KSI, especially after climbing the rank to become an officer, and eventually a member of divisional leadership, it becomes very apparent just how much information and knowledge is both needed and provided. From clan-operations to web-operations, there are many important processes, formats, and standard operating procedures that are of critical importance for members to learn in order to fully partake in, and receive a wholesome KSI experience. As divisional leadership, it is important to not only personally attain this knowledge and information, but then in turn, be able to relay this information down the chain of command in a clear and repeatable way. From the standard recruitment process and Code of Conduct, to posting attendance on the forums and applying for departments and roles, extensive knowledge will help you to lead members, as well as answer the questions they are bound to have. 2. Control the Room As a member of divisional leadership, there will be numerous occasions and situations to where you will find yourself “center stage” and with all eyes on you. Hosting divisional or Generals meetings, PO and Leadership workshops, regaining order in rambunctious parties, and disciplinary meetings are but a few examples where the flow and outcome of situations is determined by your actions and words. What these situations have in common is that a successful outcome is determined on your ability to “control the room,”, or maintain order. It's very easy to say that to attain this, all one would have to do is be louder than everyone, be aggressive, and simply assert your rank. While this can gain you attention and sometimes gain you control of the situation, the end results are nearly always negative as you end up looking like “the bad guy” and although the situation may be resolved, the results are not productive. Three of the most important tips in regards to controlling the room are listed below. For more tips and tricks, check out the Train the Trainer Workshop. Stay calm, and keep a steady tone of voice Maintain emotional control at all times Uphold a neutral, and professional position, regardless of personal feelings Regardless of what situation you’re facing, your tone of voice goes a long way in controlling the room. There is never a need to scream or yell, rather speak with confidence and a tone of firm assurance. Regarding emotion, it is crucial to keep yours controlled and in check, especially when whomever you’re speaking to is upset. Lastly, in issues involving two opposite sides or conflicts between members, keeping a neutral and open-minded perspective will ultimately produce the best outcome for all parties involved, including yourself. As a leader you will undoubtedly deal with situations that are difficult on a personal level. In those times, it is critical that you remember, and adhere to the ideas listed above. 3. Energize Your Members The task of keeping all your members focused, happy, and involved in community events hosted over the span of a couple months, to even years, has proven itself time and time again to be extremely difficult, no matter how good of a leader you are. However, if you can keep your members excited and energized, you are bound to have a successful and vibrant division, which in turn means a successful and vibrant KSI experience for both you, and your members. To achieve this, one of the many duties of leadership is to relay all relevant information to their members about current, and upcoming events, and tournaments on a regular basis. By doing this you can help to ensure that your members have every possible opportunity to be involved, and invested in the community. Some examples of these important events are as follows: Signature of the Week So You Think You Can Write? Weekend Warfare Montage Competitions OTM and OTY Nomination Periods This act alone serves as a huge way to energize members and appeal to every interest they could potentially have. Hosting events such as recruitment challenges, prize giveaways, and inter-divisional tournaments can also play a large part in motivating members and giving them a sense of purpose. When it comes down to it, your most important job is not hosting meetings, or even workshops, but rather making sure that the members in your division are having a good time, and want to be here. Use the tips listed above, as well as your own to make this a reality. 4. Encourage Conversation The goal of being a leader in this community and training others to become one as well, is not so we can simply “talk at” or lecture members so that they can in turn do the same to their subordinates, but rather promote conversation and a dialogue. Leadership cannot be simplified to one style, format, or idea. It is a complex idea that is unique to each individual person. While they may derive certain characteristics from your teachings, ultimately, the questions they ask and the conversations they have with those above them is what will shape their style. So, it is important to not only encourage conversation, but facilitate it as well. 5. Be an Active Listener Out of all the core principles listed so far, being an active listener may seem to be one of the most simple characteristics, yet if taken seriously, can be of monumental importance to successful divisional leadership. Taking the time to listen to your members, regardless of their current rank or situation, can grant insight into members feelings, needs, and thought processes that can be used to ensure a happier and more productive atmosphere. People tell you exactly what they want or need whether they mean to or not, it’s up to divisional leadership to be listening for this and utilize the information gained. 6. Help Your Members Find Their “Why?” Although most of our members join for the initial reason of gaming with other people on Xbox, and possibly gaining friends, the vast array of opportunities presented during one’s membership to KSI often changes their purpose , or the reason “why” they are in the community. While some may be content with just attending game nights and getting assistance in the games they play, others may further their experience by taking up a position as an officer, or in leadership position, and in turn, making that their purpose. Even more so, some members may find that their passion lies in one of the several departments we have in Wweb Oops. Whether your member is the active gamer who just wants to play, the member who aspires to be on the Board of Directors in, or the next department head, it is crucial to help your members find their purpose and help guide them to their goal. Help them find their "Why?". 7. Challenge Yourself, and Others, to do more Plain and simple, one of the strongest core principles of a good divisional leader is the constant self-motivation to better yourself and push above the standard, as well as promoting the other members, and leaders around you to do the same. No one is perfect, and there are always ways to better oneself. Increasing knowledge, bettering situation analysis, improving your decision making, or just being more kind to people in general, are all things that can require constant upkeep and enhancement. Complacency is the number one pitfall for leaders, and can end up crippling a division, and its squads if not handled appropriately. If there is a time where you believe that everything is finished and there is nothing to do, then you aren’t doing your job properly. Constantly reflect on your performance, and find new ways to improve.

Comments: They are encouraged to work closely with the Founder and Co-Division Leader to keep the division running smoothly. Abbreviation: Co-Fo CAP: Three Tips to Ensure Successful Leadership The last important aspect of being a part of a division's leadership team is that regardless of your rank, at the end of the day, you are still just a part of one larger team that works together to better your collective home. From Co-Founders to Division Leaders, it is extremely important to work cohesively as a singular unit; each carrying their weight/workload, while striving to make the best decisions possible that will then impact the division in the most positive, and beneficial way. If you cannot manage to put forth a united front in terms of conflict resolution, decision making, and leadership, or if members of the team don’t carry their weight by fulfilling their duties, it can not only hurt the division, but cause leaders to feel “burned-out”, or in many cases, lose their will to perform. To ensure successful divisional leadership and cohesive teamwork, there are three major characteristics that you must keep an eye on: Communication Accountability Professionalism These characteristics can also be referred to as "CAP". The following is a breakdown of these characteristics which, if maintained, can help to ensure cohesive and productive leadership. 1. Communication Being able to effectively communicate among one another when it comes to needs, wants, concerns, issues, or possible improvements, is an extremely valuable attribute to any successful team. The most important part of communication which is commonly overlooked however, is the ability to do so proactively. This means that rather than addressing things right before certain situations occur, or even after the fact, they are instead addressed ahead of time., This is the best way to avoid mistakes , and to be prepared in advance for any unavoidable circumstances. This is especially needed for times when you know ahead of time you will not be able to be present or fulfill specific duties on time. Notifying your fellow staff of upcoming absences or issues you may be having, will allow them to mitigate and help share your responsibilities, rather than frantically adjusting last minute which leads to sloppy and non-productive results. Communication is key. 2. Accountabilit Accountability for yourself, your respective squads, and your division are extremely important when it comes to ensuring success. Of these three, personal accountability ranks the highest in importance, as you are the one who decides what role you will play in your division. If you do not hold yourself accountable for the duties and tasks of your position, you set a precedent for those who follow you, who in turn, will do the same. Another aspect of accountability is upholding your word. If you agree to something or tell your fellow members or subordinates you will do something, it is imperative that you follow through. Keeping yourself accountable for your actions, words, and prior commitments establishes a network of trust and respect, both of which are needed to be viewed as a leader and role model, rather than just a title. 3. Professionalism A high degree of both control, and professionalism are needed for a variety of reasons when you are a member of leadership in this community. As a divisional leader, you set the tone, and are a role model for the actions, behaviors, and language used in your division. It is impossible to ask members to do something that you yourself are not willing to do yourself, hence the expectation of leading by example. The way you speak to people, your ability to control your emotions during tense situations, as well as your views and opinions all have a lasting and reciprocated effect on your division. Specifically, handling frustrations and who you choose to express those feelings to is a large part of professionalism. Rule of thumb, never vent down the rank structure. It is not uncommon to become frustrated with tasks, problems, or your position in general. However, these feelings are to be vocalized to members ranking above you, or of your equal position, not below. When you vent down, what you say spreads to the unwanted ears of members. Not only does your word spread, it is reinterpreted time and time again portraying things that may be completely opposite of what you said initially, especially when taken out of context. This can promote negative ideas and beliefs for members, especially newer ones, that can then create a negative atmosphere, and gaming experience for others. Keeping yourself professional at all times negates this issue and maintains high spirits and morale at the same time. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The Debrief (Post-Workshop Conversation Starters and Discussion Topics) The Following questions can be used as a conversation starter following the conclusion of your workshop. You do not have to ask every question. Pick the ones that you believe will have the most impact, and most buy in with your workshop group. What are the initial topics that stood out to you while going through the workshop? Was there anything that surprised you, or that you didn't agree with? What is at least one thing you can take from this workshop to improve your overall leadership? Which of the "7 Core Principles of an Effective Leader" stick out to you as most important, considering your own leadership style? Which of the three areas of "CAP" do you believe you are strongest in? Weakest? Where do you see yourself in a year's time? Has it changed since the last time you took a workshop?
