    Sustained superior performance doesn't necessarily mean or is solely based on recruiting, how hard they beat their chests, or how "loud" they are about their division. I can see many factors going into it. I'm only half-azz advocating for this, it's just an idea for counter-balance as I said. LEAD and other workshop attendance/graduates - member/leadership development. Recruiting is good, but what are the recruits doing --- noteworthy recruits (i.e. recruits positively contributing and impacting the community). Meeting attendance. Application of the basics and going beyond. Originality/creativity to bolster morale and encourage div to DO more, BE more, and pass on all the goodies whether it's knowledge, pride in div & community, etc... Wouldn't be an easy one to grade without some serious write up with a good amount of evidence (LEAD attendance roster, workshop attendance, awards recognition, proof of recruit impacts, etc..). But you did make an outstanding point - activity. Nothing is really happening without mofos being active. Any incentive to help push activity should be considered. Forums is an easy way to gauge activity, though there are awards geared toward that end. But because the forums is the hub of all KSI Global information and the beating heart to all that KSI does or at least the link to all the events, it certainly warrants additional incentives to drive more activity here. Same goes for anything that can help bolster camaraderie, leadership, motivation. Idk if awards are necessarily the answer but the little things really help. Public shoutout to folks putting in work or leaders taking notice of folks' first time hitting the forums or doing other things outside their comfort zone. I think one of the coolest highlights are interviews with regular members or news articles about them. Those sort of things help make their experience special here. It's been a while since I meandered around the ranks. I wonder if leaders are talking about how KSI is a medium bridging folks to personal, and yes professional, development far beyond gaming. The details around that used to be my go to KO punch for recruiting and retention of members among many other things... Happy to see folks still looking for more and new ways to improve the experience here Keep it up!

    Most improved division is an interesting one. As a counter balance what about awarding the division that sustained superior performance? Will give added incentive to high performance divs and gives divisions another positive thing to compete for. Havent looked at the current awards in effect... just a thought.

    Among the many duties I have at this base is command training officer. One big part of my job is research for various reasons, reasons that are irrelevant to the point I going to make below. Everyone has their own ideas about leadership. Who great leaders are. How to be a good leader & how to become a good leader. Now that you got a feel for what I'm bout to get into, pls forgive me for rambling or typos as I'm on my phone. I'm riding with my homeboy and got some time on my hands - so I'm typing on my phone *u know how that goes. Over the years, there have been thousands of interviews of good/great leaders, articles, seminars, & training courses businesses rely on to establish a foundation of leadership within their companies or organizations. With all the studies conducted, fortunately there has been no definitive end all be all leadership style that works 100% of the time. If scholars had produced a cookie-cutter leadership style, people would be forever trying to imitate it. They would make themselves into personae, not people, and others would see through them immediately. No one can be authentic by trying to imitate someone else. You can learn from others’ experiences, but there is no way you can be successful when you are trying to be like them. People trust you when you are genuine & authentic, not a replica of someone else. Leadership has many voices. You need to be who you are, not try to emulate somebody else. It's one thing to employ what works and eliminate what doesn't from your style, but that's just the thing... you are an individual your style will be different from mine and both of ours will be different from someone else. What matters is what works for you. There's a reason why after all the studies compiled and analyzed I'ver and over by scholars from all over have not produced the profile if a great leader. Their leadership emerged from their life stories. Consciously and subconsciously, they were constantly testing themselves through real-world experiences & reframing their life stories to understand who they were at their core. In doing this, they discovered the purpose of their leadership & learned that being authentic made them more effective, again whether they connected the dots conciously or subconsciously. THIS IS A GOOD THING! You do not have to be born with specific characteristics or traits of a leader. You do not have to wait for a tap on the shoulder. You do not have to be at the top of your organization. Instead, you can discover your potential right now! And you know what else? KSI is a great forum to develop your leadership skills. The journey to your own "authentic leadership" begins with understanding the story of YOUR life. Your life story provides the context for your experiences, & through it, you can find the inspiration to make an impact in the world...or at least KSI (to start with) ya dig? While the life stories of authentic leaders cover the full spectrum of different experiences including the positive impact of parents, athletic coaches, teachers, and mentors - if you actually read/research this topic, many leaders say that their motivation came from difficult experiences in their lives. Seriously, read bios n stuff on great leaders and the majority of the time these folks will refer back to obstacles in their lives they had to overcome. Being self aware is part of understanding who you are and your story. Denial can be the greatest hurdle that leaders face in becoming self-aware. They all have egos that need to be stroked, insecurities that need to be smoothed, fears that need to be allayed. You have to realize that you have to be willing to listen to feedback—especially the kind you don’t want to hear. Accept the criticism as a professional and make the adjustments. This is part of how you grow and adapt into your own optimal leader. Here's a fun exercise for you to actually start thinking objectively about... well... yo damn self. Ask yourself & answer these questions. Which people and experiences in your early life had the greatest impact on you? What are your most deeply held values? Add on qs (Where did they come from? Have your values changed significantly since your childhood? How do your values inform your actions?) Here's one of my favorites - WHAT MOTIVATES YOU? Are you able to be the same person in all aspects of your life—personal, KSI, work, family, and community? If not, what's holding you back? I was gonna hold off on this part of leadership but Huck me I'm stuck in this car still. So here goes. Sorry if I get cut off but you might enjoy the read and maybe get something out of it. Leading is high-stress work. Yep i Said it. Poop... its true! There's no way to avoid stress when you are responsible for people, organizing efforts, coordinating Poop, outcomes, and managing the constant uncertainties of interactions between members and others or objectives. The higher you go, the greater your freedom to control your destiny BUT also the higher the degree of stress. The question isnt whether you can avoid stress but how you can control it to maintain your own sense of equilibrium. Yea... I got vocabulary fa days holla. I'm goofing sry. Moving on. I should prob stop typing. I'm reading some of this to my dude and he's gettin all philisophical on me lolo. As a leader, you should understand that your own success doesn't mean Poop. Okay maybe a little but in the grand scheme of things, it's about the success of your peeps. It's not even about getting loyal ppl to follow. The key to any successful organization is having leaders at all levels. That's our pvts, cpls, shts, ssgt and so On. That's why we say and mean everyone is a leader here. Getting bavk to leaders at all levels and leaders developing more leaders - inspire those around you. Empower members to step up and lead! You don't need a 7 in your name to lead. If yall ever read an older post I made in every division I was over as director, leadership is NOT a rank, its NOT a position, lwadership IS a decision....it's a choice. When you decide to look after the member to the left and right of you, you've become a leader. Aight.... I've officially forgotten wtf I was thinking and completely trailed off to some area of leadership shipping lanes in my brain somewhere in the air floating high on cloud 9 how Im typing soberly is beyond me why I'm s to ll typing is a mystery to me with that I'll bI'd you all adieu. Leadership.... fkn talk about it and you'd be amaze by how much you'll learn just from each other. Feel me?
