Mindset Is Everything!!!!!!

The Events Team would like to thank the Community as a whole for a Great Birthday Bash we hosted on 01/08/22! Great way to start off the New Year and a wonderful 16th Birthday as well as the wonderful Trivia Night hosted by XGC COOP XC, XGC MiniMe XD and SYN DESI XD!

To start off the New Year, all Section Leaders should be getting their Section Updates in. The section update is where you put how your clans are doing, what they are working towards, if there are any issues or if there are future leaders that are standing out. If a new XS is not sure where to go you can hit up your peers or your XD.

Name changes

Xiled Gaming has had clan members from PC and PlayStation for quite awhile now. Xbox allows 12 characters in names, PlayStation allows 15 characters per name, but no open spaces. When creating a gamertag, if your not able to use spaces, use underscore to seperate your division tag from your gamertag.
Ex. KoG_Lotus_XD
To my knowledge PC gamers limited to 20 characters. This goes for Playstation and PC if needed.

Transfers

Transfers should never be denied, nor should they be held up for any reason. Once a clan member requests a transfer, it should take no more than 72 hours to complete the entire process. The key to getting transfers done is communication. Communicating with the leaders of where the clan member wants to go is as easy as a sending an Xbox message, or a discord message. Not working hard to complete a transfer can cause the clan member to become disgruntled, which could lead to unnecessary drama.

Captains Classes:
Note: Captains Classes are now a requirement for promotion to General. You must sign up and take a Captains class if you are interested in being promoted to General.

Encourage others to be the leaders of tomorrow
Have Fun:
Be the facilitator of fun
Create an environment in which members want to be a part of.

You'll Get out of this community what you put into it.
please share this with your leadership pipeline.


DRAMA:
Unfortunately, drama can rear it's ugly head at any given time crossing many forms of communication, it's up to us as leaders to know how to deal with it.
Drama is a tumour that needs to first be isolated, then cut out before it becomes destructive, we as leaders need to be vigilantly on guard for the dumb shit. then squash it quickly and accordingly. if you need assistance in formulating a plan to combat a situation you can rely on your leadership for advice.

Here are a few tips for shutting down the drama

Try to determine what's behind the drama.
Get the facts.
Ask them to find a solution.
Set boundaries. ...
Walk away. if needed
Seek out peers for advice
Don't become a drama seeker yourself
Stay neutral, logical, and unemotional. In other words, don’t react.

Here are a few tips on how to maintain a Dram free environment.

Model the behaviour you want to see.
Have a system for managing conflict.
Be as transparent as possible.
Stop repeating the story.
Hold open conversations about real issues.
Encourage people to carry their own messages.
Try to understand people's motivations.

Getting people involved, emotional, and excited is the goal of drama-seekers. And the more, the merrier.
Remember NEVER feed into drama.

What is conflict resolution?

Conflict resolution is a way for opposing parties to find a peaceful solution to their disagreement that leaves all parties reasonably satisfied.​

conflict resolution can be done formally or informally., effective conflict resolution skills can serve to reduce any discontent that could damage working relationships, facilitate better collaboration, and, as a result, construct strong working relationships.
Resolving conflicts effectively can prevent tension between disagreeing parties from spreading to other members not involved in the original conflict. A quick, amicable resolution can help maintain peace and morale. Knowing your audience will play a key role in solving conflict.

4 steps To resolve Conflict: CARE
  • Communicate. Open communication is key in a dispute.
  • Actively Listen. Listen to what the other person has to say, without interrupting.
  • Review Options. Talk over the options, looking for solutions that benefit everyone.
  • End with a Win-Win Solution
Here are seven-steps for an effective problem-solving process.
  • Identify the issues.
  • Understand everyone's interests.
  • List the possible solutions (options)
  • Evaluate the options.
  • Select an option or options.
  • Document the agreement(s).
  • Agree on contingencies, monitoring, and evaluation.
Favoritism
Favoritism is not something we do in the community, regardless of who you think you know, or what type of relationship you have with a person it will never give you any type of clout over anything. We believe in fair treatment for all.

"It always seems impossible until it's done" - Nelson Mandel

-Adding members to User Group the current process for adding a member to the user groups requires the general to post a request in the help desk once that member is accepted into the clan. Meaning they have reached the rank of private and are on the clan list.

-Recruits should not be getting promoted to privates if they have not registered on site, since that registering is the number one responsibility of a private. If they can not do this, they should not be promoted to private in first place.

-We are coming up on the end of the 1st quarter of the year. It might be time to take a look at your Clan/Squad lists and make sure that members are being signed up on the website. Clean out members who haven't been active in a while or who have left and some how are still left in the user groups but not on the Clan/Squad lists.

Community Game Night:
-As many know The Game with Fame is officially back and we had a successful night getting to know XGC Mini Me XD alot better last night. Be looking for more as YOU the Community will be picking in our discord polls who the next will be. In March the votes were in and KoG LOTUS XD will be having her spotlight on March 12th,2022 8pm Eastern.

-If anyone is interested in joining the Community Events Team please go to this link or ask SYN CHELL XS. We are looking for energetic people to help get more involved for all our Divisions.

Effective teamwork
Begins and ends
with communication.


Section Leaders:

*Keep in mind some short-term and long-term goals for your clan. Discuss what directions your captains want to go and give Guidance if needed.,
*Section Updates should be posted at least once every 2 months, and updated as the need arises. This helps keep track of how the clans are progressing.
*Never be afraid to fill out a Leader log, leader logs are only record-keeping, not just for yourself, but the community as a whole.
*Peep to peer relationships are just as important as the working relationship you have with your XD's, Never be hesitant to come to us with anything, good, or bad, big or small, for we are here to help in your development as leaders.
*Communication is simple if you utilize the proper tools., and all tools are provided if you know where to look.

TEAM WORK

Team Effort Everything we do in an XGC Clan is a Team Effort. The Clan is based on the XGC Honor Code, Rank Structure, and Team Work. We pull the rope together and we succeed or fail together, but we always do it as a group. No one person is bigger than the whole, no one loss is more important...
www.xiledgaming.com
www.xiledgaming.com

Tournaments:

As we all know tournaments have been a major request lately, what we need to know is what kind you want. Let's get the word out, find out what our members want as a community-wide tournament. Once you have your findings report to your direct leadership. Anything to bring people together is what like-minded gamers do.


Generals:

General Classes are MANDATORY, if you have not taken the Generals Class lets to get this done ASAP! Please message your XS to get this scheduled for the best time for you and your instructors. Please contact The leadership team if you have a specific time. XGC MINI ME XD, KoG Lotus XD or SYN DESI XD. Thank you

Reminder CAPTAINS CLASSES are MANDATORY as well!!!!!

Basic everyday procedures:

Let's not forget what we have built-in in Xiled Gaming. The rank structure is there for a reason and let's see the game nights and clan meeting weekly for your section. If you aren't able then please have your Captain trained up to take on these responsibilities. Also, there has been a lot of slacking on posting the Clan and Squad lists. Let's make sure this is being done, please. Also, make sure your User Group matches your clan list. Your XS will be talking to you if not done so be prepared.

Recruiting:

Recruiting is the main way to grow your clans. If you are stagnant and not looking or trying to recruit you are not only hurting yourself but your clan as well. Let's get this going and start training up leadership. It is simple if you bring in a recruit, assign them a Sergeant to help them answer any questions they might have. This helps the Sergeant be prepared for the LT position and helps the communication within the clan.

“Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel.
If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.”

TRANSFERS

When doing a transfer, the proper method for this to happen is for the person transferring to contact their General, who in turn will contact their Section Leader. The Section Leader will contact the Section Leader of the clan that they are hoping to go to, and they will contact the General of the clan that they will be moving to. Once all of this is done, and the transfer is accepted, the General should remove them from the clan list, make sure they are removed from the squad list, and post a removal request with the reason being transferring to their desired clan. When the removal request is processed on the website, the clan member will be moved from one clan to the other.

DISCORDS
Please make sure that when you are joining specific discord channels or sending links to members, names are to mirror your current website name. This'll alleviate any confusion as to who is who in the discord. Generals and Section Leaders are to assign roles for new or returning members in their specific Division Discords. You should be directing them to the Clan Assignment Channel to have them fill out the proper format. And when removing members from the community due to specific reasons, Generals and or Section Leaders should be removing them from your Division Discords as well. This would be helpful in keeping our individual discords clean and less cluttered.

SPRING CLEANING
Spring is in the air! It's time to get your forums cleaned up! Working together with your leadership to ensure that Usergroups and all lists match. Anyone who is inactive should be given notice prior to being removed. We don't want clutter forming in our forums to where it becomes hard to clean up. Don't be a hoarder.

The way to success is to focus on goals, not obstacles

Name Changes

For a long time, Xiled Gaming was almost always Xbox only. With the changes made a while ago, Xiled Gaming now has members on Xbox, PC, and Play Station. When a General submits a name change, not only should they list the current name,
the rank and the names wanted, but they should also list what console the member plays on.
Should that member play on multiple consoles, the console with the lowest number of characters allowed should take precedence for name length.
Which are as follows:
Xbox allows 12 characters.
Play Station allows 16 characters.
PC allows 20 characters

Discouragement within leadership

Deal with discouragement before it happens by being a positive leader. When you start to feel discouraged remember not to show this to everyone it will trickle down in the clan. When you feel like your clan has grown stagnant, Spend more time affirming and less time correcting. Give public acknowledgement, gratitude, and praise. Be available.
Three things to remember when in a rut are
remembering why you are doing this!
getting help from peers,
don't quit

Open discussion

Ask yourself these questions:
Where do you find encouragement?
How do you encourage others?
How do I know when I'm getting discouraged?
How can I overcome discouragement?
Personal reflection is never a bad thing it strengthens us as leaders.




Future Leadership:

As leaders, we want the best for our members. It is our job to train and teach each person below us (regardless of rank) how to better do their job and hopefully propel them forward in the future. Identifying this early is key! Don't wait until a position in leadership opens up before you start looking to fill that spot...you should have your eye on one, if not more, members to potentially move up into leadership roles! This is the way to build a strong foundation within your clan(s)! With good communication and training, you shouldn't have to worry about leadership!


Clan Primary Games

Your clan's primary games should stay updated consistently as the clan changes, especially with new games coming out. Get an Update Clan in tonight so everything can be brought up to date. There shouldn't be 5 main games in a clan at any point, narrow it down to 3 or less.


Promotions

Just because you reach all requirements to be promoted to the next rank does not mean you will be promoted right away. Promotions are earned not given. If you are seeking a promotion, work for it! The leadership notice it! Training Leadership As a Section Leader, your main goal should be to ensure that your Generals are knowledgeable about their responsibilities and that they feel comfortable asking questions when they aren't. However, if you are spending time training someone on the same thing over and over again, and it doesn't seem to be getting through to them, you need to figure out why that is. Whether it's that you need to find a different way to teach them or ask for assistance from a peer or XD to get this done, it needs to be a priority. If someone isn't capable of learning or retaining information, sometimes that leads to making a difficult decision and putting someone into the rank that is capable of learning. Keep in mind that if someone can't learn it themself, how could they teach it to anyone else in the ranks below them?

A little progress each day adds up to big results.

Being a “Pro” leader

As a leader, are you leading from the front or from behind? There is a saying in the sled dog world, “if you are not the lead dog, the scene never changes.”

The key to leading from the front is to be proactive versus reactive. Being proactive is built into the XG proven system of leadership. Aspects of being proactive include having a plan for your section or clans, communicating that plan to your leadership, building a pipeline of leadership, and having events (game nights, recruiting nights, leadership development training, etc.) are examples of some of the proactive topics built into the XG system.

For discussion, what are some signs of being proactive versus reactive for the following:

-having a plan for section or clan
-communicating that plan
-leadership pipeline
-clan events

After this exercise, it should be obvious the importance of being a proactive leader and the areas in which you need to focus.

Leadership training

As leaders we should always be looking forward, part of this is the advancement and ensuring we are training upcoming leaders to succeed.
This entails holding leadership accountable and ensuring they are upholding their responsibilities. Suppose we find that a leader is not meeting all requirements we need to be having a talk with said member a finding out the reason and how we can resolve the issues. The best way to train someone is by example so remember to practice what you preach.


The Importance of communication:

Being a leader means taking responsibility not only for yourself but for those who follow you. It means making sure that your members are receiving the information and resources they need to achieve success in the community.
All of this requires communication with both leaders and your members and ensuring you are telling members of essential notes, events even upcoming game nights.

Summer has arrived

Summer has arrived and this means members going on vacation and spending more time outside with the family. We need to make sure we are communicating with clan members and leadership on when and how long they may be away.

People rarely succeed unless
they have fun in what they do.

Streaming within the community.


The benefits of streaming are endless, streaming brings us together, We know we have some folks that are serious and trying to make it a profession, but we also have others that are using it to bring their clans together. So what does that look like in each division, each section, each clan? So We are wanting to get an understanding of what the use of streaming is within the community and the benefits streaming can offer to our overall success, so dig in ask follow up questions, open discussions., question like, how many streamers though out each section/clan/squad., how can we use streaming to push our names out there to be known and promote growth within our ranks.
What can the community provide to aid in this process. Like being hosted on the website. Announcements in the discords. ect
This is not so much a note, but an assignment.

The Primary Qualities of a Leader:

Leadership is not easy, No leader is perfect, there's always room for improvement, always be looking for the tools to aid in your journey.

LEADERSHIP IN XG

Strength and Growth
Come only through
continuous effort
And Struggle.

Not Knowing The Facts:
To be a productive leader is not to assume that your Generals or captains are not doing there job by just watching who's in the partys or what game they are playing join in with them. Once you assume you could be hurting the clan or community by prematurely demoting, harassing, or falsely accusations.

Teachers:
As section leaders and or generals we are teachers. We are not a boss of nothing. Our job is to give the needed tools and guidance for clan growth development, and development growth of a leader.


Mistakes:
As section leaders or general we should allow our leaders to run there clan or squad andmake mistakes and figure there own way to run things. Mistakes are how we learn as leaders. If we're not making mistakes are we truly leading? If you don't make mistakes you are leading too conservative or not leading at all.


Quiting to early:
As leaders we should not be throwing in the towel to early. For section leaders it has become accustomed to just pulling the plug throwing in the towel on a clan. Absorbing these members into exsiting clan then splitting that clan soon after. This is quiting to early and not using all the resources at your disposal. Were the leaders above you so quick to quit on you? If they did, you wouldn't be in the leadership position your in. Never look for short cuts, take the long journey, ensure for success on every aspect.



Chance:
As leaders of the community are objectives should all be the same. We should be striving to give each member the same opportunity that we were giving. We should be helping pave the road for the future leaders of the community. We should be sharing the expirences that we have had with the community with them to help them grow.


Manufacturer Terms to problem solving (5whys)
Using the five Why process to determine the root cause of the problem can be beneficial in clan or section management. Example below
Why did the clan fail?
General lost interest
Why did the General loose interest?
It become a job and couldn't find any recruits
Why did it become a job and why couldn't he find recruits?
His captains wasn't pulling there weight. He was only one recruiting.
Why were the captains not pulling there weight and nobody recruiting ?
Because they were good friends and had great outlooks on the community. We became stagnant.
Why did we become stagnat?
Because I let the captains hold the rank but not fulfill the responsibilities.

So the root cause of the clan failure was due to not making his or her members fulfill there responsibilities.
If done before failure you could stop a problem before it becomes a major problem.
