  1. Clan-Ops Workshop Redesign

    Absolutely. Get with me on discord. I have a couple of workshops that we still need rough drafts for.
  2. Handbook Second draft

    Do you think we could break it down and include it in the new workshop revisions? Teach a piece here, a piece there?
  3. It’s been a while

    Good to see you around!

  10. Evening again all, In addition to the post I made earlier about a clan ops workshop redesign, we are also in the process of designing a course specifically created to train the trainers of KSI. As I briefly mentioned, in the course of my conversations with all different types of leaders in the community, there has been a consensus about what hasn't been working as far as training goes. Some of the big points have been a lack of confidence, lack of knowledge relating to how to create a training that is more conversational, rather than lecture oriented, and finally, not being comfortable doing it. While these are just a few of the things I have heard, I think we have identified a way forward. The train the trainer workshop will likely be structured around the following 7 core principles of leadership. As of right now in their rough draft stage, they are as follows: The 7 Core Principle of an Effective Leader (Rough Draft) Be knowledgable, and know what you are selling 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 # of principles will not change, but the wording and content of them could. What are you, the leaders of KSI, thoughts on the 7 listed above? What are you proposed changes? What other information is it important for a trainer to know that isn't covered by these? Any thoughts are welcome!

  13. Clan-Ops Workshop Redesign

    Over the past month or so, I've been making my way around KSI talking to leaders about what works, and what doesn't work with the current training structure in the community. The responses I have gotten have been incredibly informative, eye opening, and thought provoking. What I've found is that there is a general consensus about what we need to do differently moving forward into the future of this community in order to help train and create the best and most effective leadership possible. Several of the points that I have heard over and over again are as follows: Lack of consistency in training methods Lack of organization Workshops that are outdated Workshops that are boring Too many workshops Lack of follow through on workshops And many more In my opinion, I think a lot of these statements hit the nail on the head. Right now we are developing a few new courses to help make sure that everyone is comfortable in their roles as trainers, which we hope to role out by the start of the new year. I believe these will not only increase our confidence in our abilities as trainers, but also the quality of leadership that will begin rising through the ranks. At the same time, we are approaching phase 2 of a different redesign; Clan Ops Workshops. As of right now there are four distinct workshops for the squad level. Also as of right now, there is nothing beyond that. This is where we are looking to make a change. New Clan-Ops Workshop Structure (In development) New Member Workshop (New Member Certificate, or better name) For New Members (should they have to attend to become full members?) Ran on a bi weekly basis (subject to change) Covers all of the basics (could we alter the recruitment process then?) Sign up for the forums Learn the rank structure Learn the code of conduct Learn about the courts Learn about departments and what they have to offer Learn about how to get involved Harrsement policy What else? Are there other things that should be included in the new member workshop? Basic Training Workshop (Basic Training Certificate) The new SGT workshop When someone becomes a SGT they take this course (should they have to take it before becoming SSGT?) Covers many of the same basics as the previous SGT workshop SGT job duties Become recruit trained Walk through how to host a recruiting party/game night? What else? Squad Leadership Workshop (Squad Leader Certificate) The new officer workshop Will cover everything from LT to Gen (no need for so many separate workshops) Covers many of the basics of those three workshops (LT, CPT, GEN), but in a more condensed fashion. What are the basics needed to be an officer Duties of an LT, CPT, GEN Differences between the jobs, also how they are similar Future use of G14 on the squad level Extension on how to host game nights and parties How to organize an officer staff How to deal with conflicts on a base level Brief explanation of how to deal with threats from other communities What else? Divisional Leadership Workshop (Divisional Leader Certificate) New workshop for divisional leadership positions (CoFo-Div Leader) What are the basics needed to be a divisional officer What do effective divisional leaders need to know? Duties of CoFo, Founder, CoDiv, Div Use of G14 on the divisional level How to manage, organize, and delegate When to be hands on, and when to be hands off How to deal with conflicts on a more in depth level How to deal with threats from other communities on a more in depth level (lockdowns, etc.) How to run the recruit tag effectively How to structure a well ran division and officer staff How to set up proper channels of communication, including meeting structure (divisional meetings, gen meetings, etc.) How to divide and conquer with additional duties What else? Community Leadership Workshop (Community Leader Certificate) New workshop for community leadership positions (Dir, Senior Dir, Dept Leaders, Non Clan Ops Senior Leaders) What are the basics needed to be an effective community leader? What do effective community leaders need to know? Duties of all senior leadership positions (Dir, Senior, Dept Leaders, etc.) Use of G14 on the extra divisional level How to manage, organize, and delegate when dealing with the bigger picture and potentially thousands of members Further dive into conflict resolution Further dive into security and how to deal with threats from other communities Diplomacy on a community level (how to work with other communities if you are put in that position) How to manage divisions and sections with a hands off approach, while also being hands on when necessary How to manage the extra responsibilities you will know have How to work with the Board of Directors, and how they come into play How to set up channels of communication to make your job easier What else? So these are just my initial thoughts on what might be included in each workshop. These are by no means perfect, and need changed. To do that I need your input on each one. What do you see that looks good? What do you see that doesn't look good? What needs added? Should workshops be required? Should their be a certification for each workshop? For this to be a groundbreaking change in the way we do things, it has to be built from the bottom up, and not the top down. If we do this right, it can shape KSI for years to come, and make every part of the community run more effectively. You input is important in this process.
