What does it take to become a great leader?

Leadership is not easy, nor is it for everyone, it takes a highly driven individual to be a successful leader, "You are not born a leader", it takes dedication, professionalism, good decision-making, and years of learning by experience to become a great leader. The key to being an effective leader is to remain humble and approachable; Never get a big head, never loose your cool, be respectful, A leader leads by example and sets the tone, if your having a fun, your team will have fun. Your enthusiasm is contagious, remember, we all pull the rope together. Below are links that will be beneficial to your growth as a leader:

WHAT DOES LEADERSHIP MEAN?

What does it mean to become a great team leader? Walter J. Lippman said, "The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men the conviction and will to carry on." Leadership is fundamentally about influence; it is about influencing people for great purposes. It may seem more...

RELATIONSHIPS AND LEADERSHIP IN XG

To eliminate drama and keep any kind of favoritism or feelings from influencing decisions, XG does not allow husband/wife, boyfriend/girlfriend, or immediate family to directly report. We realize that with the amazing members we have, at some point you might find the person who completes your life. If you do, we require you to notify a leader (XD, XC, XI) so one of you can be moved. Notifying a leader of these relationships will not result in the loss of rank or removal from the community. However, any lying, deception, manipulation of stories or members, or relationships that generate issues or drama for the community may result in demotion and/or removal from the community. The rank structure is intended to be followed without personal feelings or emotional decisions affecting the directions of our clans.

Look, we get it, some of you are going to date. We don't care! Just spare us and your division the drama of going through it by being honest!

Website App I'm proud to announce our new website app. Xenforo recently released an update that upgraded the website with the ability to support what's called a Progressive Web App, or PWA for short. Without getting too technical, a PWA is supposed to be the best of both worlds when comparing it to a Web App or Native App (The apps you get out of the Google Play or Apple Store). You install it on your device (desktop or mobile) through your browser. Several browsers are supported, however, it works best through chrome or chromium based browsers, like Firefox and the new Microsoft Edge. Apple devices are have limited features but are also capable of downloading the app.
So how do you download it?

Follow the steps below:

Android Phone
1. Open your chrome browser and log into our website.
2. Click the three parallel lines in the upper left-hand corner and scroll down.
3. At the bottom, there will be an install app option.

Desktop
1. Open your chrome browser and log into the website.
2. Look at the right-hand edge of the address bar.
3. Click on the box with a diagonal arrow pointing to the upper right-hand corner of the box. 4. Install App.

Apple Phone
1. Open safari and log into the website.
2. Swipe up
3. Scroll down until you find "Add To Home Page"
4. Add a name and install.


X Team
We are re-organizing the X-Team into an actual practicing, fully living, and breathing competitive team. If you are interested, please let SYN PMAR XS know, Regardless of response, we will be getting together with everyone who has an X in their name in the upcoming weeks,, we would love for all X's to show their support and participate when available., Let's Make The X-TEAM A unstoppable force to be reckoned with !

Discord

Discord is one of the official forms of communication of Xiled Gaming, and is a valuable tool at our disposal,. Please make sure we are using this to our full advantage. it is fully acceptable to to utilize Discord for meetings if necessary ., Ex. When someone isnt able to use the Xbox or Xbox App discord can be used for communication. Holding meetings is encouraged for this.

“What you do has far greater impact than what you say.” – Stephen Covey, author and educator

There has been "Gamers" going around called TSB and XGN, Xiled Syndicate. These people have been adding higher leadership and then looking on there friends list to see who they can come after and annoy. There are trying to poach and also DDOS Xiled Gaming members offline. So if you are contacted by these gamers we highly suggest ignoring them and blocking them so that something like this doesn't happen to you.

Discord
As some of you may have seen, we have added a few new things to your Division Discords. Each Section Leader has their own section channel and chat box for their section as well as categories with voice boxes for you all to utilize for meetings.

HonorCode : Section VI
In the Honor Code of Section VI - XILED GAMING members CANNOT be apart of any other gaming communities/clans! Any and all gamer tags must be either in XILED GAMING clans or in none at all. XILED GAMING does NOT have ANY alliances with other gaming communities/clans! XILED GAMING will remain friendly and professional with ALL gaming communities at all times! ZERO TOLERANCE! If an XILED GAMING member leaves, they are NOT allowed back. In the event of a member wanting to come back, each situation will be looked at by the COUNCIL/Division Leaders on a case-by-case basis.

Why People Join XG - Your Attitude & Enthusiasm Matter!
There are two main reasons that people join Xiled Gaming.
#1: Having like-minded gamers to play with when they are online!
#2: Competition, whether within their clan or the community

Gaming is supposed to be fun - make sure your attitude when you enter parties is enthusiastic, enthusiasm is contagious! We all need to get some pep in our step and show members why we're the best gaming community out there. If you have members in leadership who have lost their drive, it trickles down to members as well, so figure out what makes XG fun for you and embrace that.

Being a Leader
Being a Leader in Xiled Gaming isn't just about holding a specific rank. It's about leading by example, acting in a professional manner and ensuring that no member is left behind. Treating every member in the community as a valued member and respect. Know that at the end of the day, it isn't about which Clan/Section/Division is better, it's about having fun and gaming with your friends.

IF EVERYONE IS MOVING FORWARD TOGETHER, THEN SUCCESS TAKES CARE OF ITSELF.

LEADING BY EXAMPLE

Leading by example means you're guiding others through your behaviors and inspiring them to do the same as you. When you lead by example, you provide a path to direct others down so that everyone is working towards a common goal with the same purpose, all the while creating a picture of what's possible. People can look at you and say, "Well, if he can do it, I can do it." Build that relationship with your members and learn one another.

TRANSFERS
Members requesting to transfer have the right to transfer to a clan that they feel best suits them. Most transfers are unjustly denied due to personal reasons or emotions. This being said, transfers are never denied unless that transfer will without a doubt cause the community harm. An unhappy member will not only not benefit you, they will also resent you for denying their transfer. This will eventually develop into problems.

CLUTCH FOR COBRA
Saturday, 05/22/2021 starting @5pm Eastern Time, Xiled Gaming will be hosting a Charity Stream in Honor of KoG Cobra XD. All donations will go to the family. A Variety of games will be played and members will receive prizes for participations so don't forget to check out the Twitch Stream @XiledGamingTV.

RESEARCHING
When bringing new members into your clans, you always have to ask yourself these questions. Have they ever been in Xiled Gaming? Do they meet the age requirements to your specific division and do you feel that they are a good fit for the community as a whole? Whether they are former members or new members, you as leaders should be researching on the website to ensure that theses members are not trying to sneak back into the community in an attempt to avoid the Grass Wasn't Greener process. If a returning member approaches you about being removed for inactivity, Generals you would still have to find that removal request to verify that the said member was indeed removed for inactivity. If you are unable to find a removal request, please reach out to your leadership for further research.

SERGEANT
Sergeants must meet all their responsibilities as outlined in the XG Rank Structure as well as hold their rank for a minimum of 2 weeks. They must also show they want to be part of the XG leadership. They must play with recruits and privates and be an example to them on how to play. Sergeants should work closely with their Lieutenant to learn how the responsibilities of leadership work. Sergeants should encourage all members of the squad/clan to add every member in order to assist in building good gaming relationships between members. Never let time requirements dictate a promotion. Ensuring that the individual is a good fit for the position is key. utilize them to recruit as a requirement to teach them about their future rank responsibilities.

NAME CHANGES
If you have new members joining the community, remind them that they cannot change their name on Xbox and have XGC, KoG, SYN in front of it. Once they have reached the rank of a Sergeant, they are eligible to put in a name change to the General. The General will then research the name on the website as well as on Xbox to ensure that the name isn't already taken by someone else before submitting it into their Section Leaders Forums. The Section Leader will then do a second search to verify that there are no other duplicate names. Once the Section Leader approves the name change in their forums, the member can then proceed to request for a name change through the website. Gamertags cannot be changed until a Division Leader or higher approves it on the website. If you are requesting a name with either XGC, KoG, SYN in front of it, the name cannot duplicate another members name or a Clan Name. If it is spelled differently but sounds the same, it will be Denied.

PROFESSIONALISM AND FAIR PLAY
XILED GAMING members will display a professional gaming demeanor at all times. Any match an XG member participates in should observe the rules of Fair Play, Sportsmanship and Respect. As an XG member, you not only represent yourself but XILED GAMING as a whole.

"The most important thing in communication is to hear what isn't being said"-Peter Drucker

Communication & Accountability

Communication is the Key to success, this goes hand in hand with Accountability., We as leaders in this community must recognize how important accountability to yourself, your responsibilities and to your peers truly is.

Honor Code IX
Honor Code violations consist of discrimination, racism, sexism, harassment, illegal drugs, cheating, poaching, squad de-ranking, or any other overly aggressive behavior toward fellow online gamers. Cheating is defined as any manipulation of online play; this includes, but not limited to modding, bridging, stand-bying, forcing host, action replay, glitching/super jumping in match making/ranked games to gain an unfair advantage, playing online custom / ranked games with Modders, and circle boosting. Every situation is different and will be handled appropriately on a case by case basis.
Harassment
To harass is plainly defined as "Subject to aggressive
pressure or intimidation.
No member should feel as if they are a victim of harassment in this community, we all joined this community to game with like minded gamers, and having fun., Harassment can come in many forms, two of the most common are, verbal harassment, & visual harassment. Have an open discussion with your leadership pipeline on this topic, find ways to effectively recognize & combat harassment.

Success is not final,failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
Don't find fault, find remedys.
Faults the mind killer:
It is easy to find fault in anything, whether it be in real life or community related, , find a solution to that fault and remedy it, never believe reaching a solution is unattainable, it takes patients, & understanding, bundled with communication is key, knowing how to approach the situation with a calm cool demeanor to squash the negativity that a believed fault is producing to obtain the peace of mind needed to proceed with clarity. Never allow yourself as a leader to fall victim to believing in faults of any kind, Always seek the truth before a fault can do damage.

Leading by Example:
Every leader was chosen for their quality's in leadership, so it important to never loose focus on how to leading by example, remember a boss orders, a leader leads, one of the best examples of this is having objectives as a leader, such as to help those who is doing poorly to do well, and help those who are doing well to do even better. Setting personal objective for ourselves as leaders in the community is very beneficial not only for us as leaders but for our leadership pipelines.
We should always be holding ourselves accountable as leaders striving to improve our own skills to better serve our members.
AS leaders we know there is two different types of Banter, friendly, and unwanted, knowing how to differentiate the two and have professional discussions to deescalate any unneeded problem is key., if this problem arises contact your leadership for advise.

Adapting to change:
Every leader has there own since of leading. We have our own styles in which makes us unique leaders. We all need to be aware of our members so we can better serve our members. Knowing our members will help each one of us the ability to tweak our leadership abilities to fit there needs. BE aware of your surroundings, always ready for the unexpected to take place., Stay three steps ahead, Have a plan for a plan for a plan.

Being a Team Leader
A Leader helps to guide a team towards achieving a certain goal while managing and resolving technical and interpersonal roadblocks along the way. As a result, the role of a team leader often requires people to exercise organizational and people skills.
UNITING THEIR TEAM - The team leader should ensure that all clan members clearly understand their roles as it relates to others on the team. Everyone should know how they are expected to work together to achieve success.
PLANTING GOALS AND MILESTONES - As a leader you should establish a plan for your Clan to reach their goals by identifying and communicating responsibilities to the clan members. MOTIVATE, INSPIRE, and EDUCATE!

How can a Leader motivate their team?
An effective leader should motivate and empower others to be their best. Every clan will face setbacks or unexpected problems. A leader’s ability to encourage others during challenging times creates a successful team. ALWAYS LEAD BY EXAMPLE. Acting as a member of the clan and show your commitment and inspire others by doing the right thing. Adhering to the rules and Showing appreciation to each and every individual member in your clan as well as Identifying, communicating and upholding the core values in line with those that can help people feel more inspired and motivated toward achieving certain goals.

Knowing the Characteristics of a Team Leader
A team leader should strive to be effective, accountable, empathetic and courageous. Acting as a team leader is a great opportunity to develop your character. Team leaders should communicate information consistently and clearly to their team. A good team leader is also a skilled learner who can accept and act on feedback, suggestions and concerns from team members. A good leader believes in the ability of their team to accomplish goals. This often improves the confidence, dedication and motivation of team members. Rules and guidelines must be communicated clearly and applied consistently by creating tasks and working to create a positive environment that is equal and without favoritism. A good team leader motivates individuals to do their best work to contribute to the goal, especially in times of stress or difficulty.

As a reminder please make sure if you're going on vacation or going to be away from the xbox for a long period of time. Please make sure you communicate with your chain of command. Let higher and lower leadership know so there isnt no miss communication on what your were abouts are.

Also next Community Meeting with be July 18th,2021

SUCCESS doesn't come from what you do occasionally,
it comes from what you do consistently.


Name Changes
Name change request and proper way to put them in on the website is very important
, Section Leaders must be training our their leadership pipelines on Name Change Requests before being submitted on the website. you need to follow up with each General and make sure they know the proper way of requesting a name change rather than making a ticket and submitting it in the help desk. if you are confused on this process please get with your division leader for assistance. always remember when names are submitted no copy cat names,

Discord
Ensuring Roles are added and removed accordingly, rank, clan must be up to date, please double check your discords to ensure we have them correct, always encourage our valuable member to utilize this valuable resource.

Website and Forum:
We all know that the website is our primary form of communication, it is also our most valuable source of information to help leaders in the community. Make sure that you are utilizing the abundance of information that is available in the Leadership tools on the website. Also, you should be frequently looking at and relooking at the XG Bible posts to see if there are any new posts or directives. The more active that you are on the website, the better of a leader that you will become.

Working with Peers:
To be successful as a group of leaders, we have to be working as a team. You have to be a strong enough leader to be able to put petty differences aside to work for the betterment of the whole team. There is no room for condescending remarks or attitudes when a peer comes to you for help. Further more if you are an XS with experience, you should be sharing your experiences to help your fellow XSs. None of us have the exact same experiences, therefore you can be a valuable asset during those times. For example, say that a new XS has a clan that is having issues and is in need of rebuilding. If you know that this XS has never been through this before and you have, why wouldn't you want to share your knowledge to help your peer and the community.

Supporting and Guiding our Generals:
As Section Leaders, it is your responsibility to guide your Generals to success. First, you must make sure that they understand the requirements of the positions and what is expected of them to meet those requirements. Then holding your Generals responsible to take their classes, upstanding to their responsibilities, and guiding their members is essential to your job.

Complacency & Time:
Remember we should always be striving to better ourselves. The day we grow complacent, is the day we start to move backwards. Keep going forwards! Time is limited, so choose what you want to do with it. Do you want to sit around and do nothing? Or make the decisions that will make you happy and ensure your destiny? It's ultimately up to you.

Establishing Priorities
It is important that you prioritize your limited amount of time that you have on the box. We do not expect you to have to deal with XG business the whole time while you are on the box. However, we do expect that you are taking care of business or issues in a timely manner. That means getting what needs to be done, done. If you know you need to speak to a general(s) for your weekly meeting, knock that out when you first get on, then enjoy your evening. If you become better at managing your time, your duties will not build up until you feel overwhelmed.

Another point regarding setting priorities, if you have a clan that is having issues or is not doing so well, you need to spend more time helping out in this clan than you need to with a clan that is doing well. It is your job to ensure the success of the clans in your section, so you need to be helping find solutions or providing input, or setting goals for clans that are in need.

Section Updates
In addition to the information about the clan status and goals that you are putting in your Section Updates, you should also being using these forums to document any discussions, corrections, or potential issues that you are having with any leaders in your section. So if you have a general whose clan is not growing and you have a conversation with that general about the importance of recruiting and give some advice on how the clan can get better results; document that in your Section Update. This will provide a record of your interactions with the general. Then if the situation does not improve and you are going to have to make a change in leadership, this record details the actions that were taken, what those results are for the situation, and provides support for the demotion. Also, use the Section Updates for positive results. So if that same general winds up following your advice and the clan starts doing great, that information is there as well.

Important Note: The information that you post, as mentioned above, does not take the place of doing a Leader Log, when the situation dictates one is needed. The information in your Section Update may wind up in a Leader Log, but it is not a replacement.

Up coming new games
With up coming release of the new games in the next couple of months, there will be opportunities for clan growth. However to be ready to seize those opportunities, you must be preparing now and over the next six weeks.

First of all you should be finding out what games your clan members are looking to purchase. Once you determine what most of the clan will be playing, there be members that may want to grow different game or transfer to another clan that is playing that game. Make sure no member is left behind.

You should be making sure that you have leadership in place that are prepared to grown the clan by helping welcome and train the new members. They should know the importance of holding game nights and meetings.

Also, as new members are concerned, you should make sure that your members know how to recruit, who to recruit, and what to do with them once they are recruited. It is hard to recruit if you are gaming with the same 5-6 members in a private party. Utilize the game chats to meet potential members. Everyone should be recruiting now and pick up the pace when the new games drop.

There will be an abundance of opportunities for clan growth and new members, will you take the time now to prepare to take advantage of those opportunities; if not, be assured that someone else will.

FOR EVERY POSITIVE CHANGE YOU MAKE IN YOUR LIFE,
SOMETHING ELSE CHANGES FOR THE BETTER.
IT CREATES A CHAIN REACTION.

Name Changes
As Leaders, it is our responsibility to ensure that those below us know the proper route to take when doing name changes on the website. Generals, when members are requesting a name change, you should be researching these names on the website as well as on gaming platforms to ensure that the name isn't already taken. Names including XGC, KoG, SYN in front of it should be thoroughly researched before it is posted in your Section Leader's forums. If the name already exists on the website and has been active for less than 3yrs on both the gaming platform and/or the website, it will be denied. Names that are deemed inappropriate or offensive will be denied as well. Names that duplicate another member's name, a clan name or a fellow Leader's name will also be denied. Remember, having these 3 letters in front of your name, you not only represent yourself but your division and your community as a whole. Once the names have been researched and submitted to the Section Leader, it is their responsibility to do follow-up research and double-check to ensure that the names are good. Members should wait until the name is changed on the website before changing it on your specific console.

Community Teams
As you all know, Xiled Gaming also has 4 teams. They are the Events Team, News Team, Design Team and the Stream Team. Each team has a specific Team Leader assigned to oversee and make sure that they are being run smoothly. As members of these teams, we are always looking for people to join us in helping to make Xiled Gaming fun and more enjoyable on a day-to-day basis. Whether it be hosting Game nights on certain games to writing about new and upcoming games or interviewing Leaders, Designing new banners/signatures and avatars and streaming your games for fellow gamers to view. We all have a goal to reach in this community. Our goal as leaders of these teams is to ensure that members are having fun and networking with others that share the same idea. If anyone is interested in being a part of these Teams, feel free to hit up your Leaders at any time with any questions.

Working Together as a Team
As a member and a Leader in this community, we should be working together as a team. With that being said, ALL LEADERS in all three Divisions should be working together in handling these issues and not against each other. If an issue should arise in your Division and your fellow peer isn't available, you can reach out to other Divisions for assistance in resolving these issues. Remember, not all issues need to be handled instantly the moment has occurred. We are all Leaders for the same reasons and the same goal, there is no excuse as to why we are working against each other.

FOR EXAMPLE:
If a general has issues in their clan and their XS is not available, they can ask any other XS in the division or COMMUNITY on basic issues until the XS of the general is able to get with the general and close the issue.

Working together is a big part of the XG Community and making sure if we have issues with people we address them with the person, this will help solve the issues before they get out of hand. We don't ever talk through people. it is the quickest way to misunderstandings and drama.

GREAT LEADERS DON'T SET OUT TO BE A LEADER...THEY SET OUT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
IT'S NEVER ABOUT THE ROLE-ALWAYS ABOUT THE GOAL
Section Leaders Notes

Dealing with issues:

When dealing with issues be careful in jumping to conclusion with only a portion of the information. We have to remember to give people the benefit of the doubt. It's easy to lose sight of that over time. We don't always have to be suspicious or skeptical right away. We need to be patient and get all the details before we form an opinion. Sometimes things are also just as they seem and that will prove out once all information is gathered. Always get both sides of a story, somewhere in the middle you will find the truth.

Importance of Section Updates:
Typically, your section updates should be done once a month. This should include a breakdown of the status of each clan, what they are working on, and a review of the goals of the leadership. If there are any up coming major events, squad or clan splits, this should also be noted.

You should also be utilizing the section updates to document any issues that comes up in the clans since the last update. This also includes any times that you have to have conversations with leadership in the clan about performing their rank responsibilities. This is to provide a "paper trail" of the conversation, just in case the issue is not fixed and the situation gets worse and eventually leads to a demotion. For example, if you wind up demoting a general because they have not been holding clan meeting for two months. Not here should be an edit of your section update that highlights the conversations that you held with the general discussing the issue and leading to the decision for demotion.

***Posting this type of info your section update does not take the place of posting in the Leader log. As always, if the situation requires a Leader log posting, post in that forum.

If you have questions on what type of information you should be adding in your section update, please hit up a division leader.

Know The Basics
Make sure you and your leaders know where to find all of the basic leadership tools on the website, such as the clan structure, rank structure, and promotion requirements. You should be able to help all members on where to find these as well. If you haven't looked through the XG Bible, that is also a great resource for both you and your Generals to be able to view answers from XC/XI on questions that have been posted over the years on a wide variety of topics. If you aren't sure on an answer, that is a great place to look if nobody is available to pull into a party at that time, if you can't find an answer anywhere you can start a thread yourself to get a response.

Stay In Your Lane
As a Section Leaders, it is your responsibility to run a successful Section. In order to do so, you must focus on you and your Section first, not what is going on in other Sections/Divisions. If an issue arises between one of your members and a member in another clan/section/division, bring it to your Leadership's attention immediately so it can be handled. If a member from another clan comes to you with an issue, direct them to their leadership first, or tell them to utilize the open door policy and hit up an XD/XC/XI if it isn't being handled.

Generals Notes

Stream Team

There will be a meeting for the Stream Team 8/20/2021 at 9pm est. if you have any questions please contact XGC CAGE.

Upcoming Meetings
With the upcoming holidays, the next meeting will be in 2 weeks August 29th. There is no meeting the first Sunday in September due to Labor Day.

Recruiting:
When recruiting members, remember quality over quantity. We want ideal members, not just numbers. Being selective on who's brought into the clan/community will undoubtedly benefit both. Make sure you're recruiting like minded individuals and gamers that share the same idea and goals as you do.
Remember when recruiting, keep in mind that some of these people you recruit could be returning members as well. It is your responsibility to research any gamertags that they have had. If members were removed for inactivity a GwG is not needed. For those that were removed for Honor Code Violations etc or if you cannot find a removal request for said member because of them being gone for so long or if it was lost somewhere, Send them through the Grass Wasn't Greener process. Never assume someone was removed due to Inactivity just because they said that they were.

Training Your Replacement
All leadership ranks are responsible for making sure that they train their own replacement. This is also known as building your leadership pipeline. If a Captain has to step down for personal reasons, their LT should be ready to take their place without waiting several weeks for training to take place. If you aren't preparing for these situations proactively and holding your leadership accountable for their rank responsibilities, your clan will not be able to move forward and be successful. If you don't know what to do in order to overcome an issue in your clan, ask your XS or use the open door policy to find out, don't just wait until the issue happens, focus on preventing the issue from ever occurring.

Training Tools
When training members at any rank, remember to teach them the proper way. Explain things in detail and always try to set them up for success! Teach them the tools they'll need to be better leaders and support them. Communication is key! Having an open line of communication will and does increase the success of the clan.

LEADERSHIP TOOLS

www.xiledgaming.com


Goals
You should be working with your clans and leaders to ensure they are setting goals for themselves on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. What do you do on a daily basis to move your clans and leaders forward? How are they moving forward in their progression as leaders and helping those below them succeed and get to their next step? If they aren't moving forward and pushing themselves and others forward, they are stagnant. Make sure this isn't happening with any of your clans, and if it is, figure out how to get them out of their rut. If they aren't upholding their responsibilities, you need to train them or find a new leader.

Leadership Classes
These classes are designed to help your leadership obtain the knowledge to move forward as a successful leader. The only classes that are MANDATORY are the General's Classes and Section Leader's class. The Captain class is not mandatory but highly recommended. In the event a captain hasn't taken the class, work with him/her and try to get them in one as it will help when they move up in leadership. There is NO penalty for a captain not taking the class so we do not demote Captains just because they haven’t taken the Captain class.

Clan Sizes
Generals, when your clan is moving towards 25-30 members, your XS and yourself should be developing a plan for a clan split and getting your leadership ready. The optimized clan should have 20-30 members with full leadership and replacements ready to go. When looking at number of squads in your clan, you do not need to have a specific number of squads in order to do a clan split - clan splits are done when leadership is ready. We have the Clan Structure in place for a reason. Squad splits should be taking place when members have earned that promotion and shown that they will be able to run a successful squad.

Know The Basics
Make sure you and your leaders know where to find all of the basic leadership tools on the website, such as the clan structure, rank structure, and promotion requirements. You should be able to help all members on where to find these as well. If you haven't looked through the XG Bible, that is also a great resource for both you and your Generals to be able to view answers from XC/XI on questions that have been posted over the years on a wide variety of topics. If you aren't sure on an answer, that is a great place to look if nobody is available to pull into a party at that time, if you can't find an answer anywhere you can start a thread yourself to get a response.

Clan/Squad Lists
Remember, these are mandatory and are due BY the 1st and 15th of each month. They may be posted up to 3 days in advance, so if you or your Captain needs to post early, make sure you do so, rather than posting late.

Stay In Your Lane
As a General, it is your responsibility to run a successful clan. In order to do so, you must focus on you and your clan first, not what is going on in other clans. If an issue arises between one of your members and a member in another clan, bring it to your Section Leaders' attention immediately so it can be handled. If a member from another clan comes to you with an issue, direct them to their leadership first, or tell them to utilize the open door policy and hit up an XD/XC/XI if it isn't being handled.

Generals Notes

INTEGRITY, INSIGHT, AND INCLUSIVENESS are the three essential qualities of Leadership
Communication

Generals, when and if you are not available for meetings, it is your responsibility to inform the leadership above and below you of your unavailability. Communication is the key to Success. Let the leadership below you know that they can reach out to other General in regards to Sunday meetings so that they are not being left out. Also, remember to communicate to your fellow peers as well as your section Leader to ensure that your section is covered during meetings so that someone can pick them up for meetings.



Respecting one another
Respecting one another No matter what clan, section or division you are a part of, you need to treat everyone with respect no matter the circumstances you are put under. This goes hand in hand with acting professionally as a leader. You should be holding yourself to a higher standard when it comes to how you present yourself to members and other leaders in the community.


Working with Peers
Working with Peers To be successful as a group of leaders, we have to be working as a team. You have to be a strong enough leader to be able to put petty differences aside to work for the betterment of the whole team. There is no room for condescending remarks or attitudes when a peer comes to you for help. Furthermore, if you are a General with experience, you should be sharing your experiences to help your fellow Generals. None of us have the exact same experiences, therefore you can be a valuable asset during those times. For example, say that a new General has a clan that is having issues and is in need of rebuilding. If you know that this General has never been through this before and you have, why wouldn't you want to share your knowledge to help your peer and the community?


Supporting and Guiding our Captains
Supporting and Guiding our Captains As Generals, it is your responsibility to guide your Captains to success. First, you must make sure that they understand the requirements of the positions and what is expected of them to meet those requirements. Then holding your Captains responsible to take their classes, upstanding their responsibilities, and guiding their members is essential to your job.


Establishing Priorities
Establishing Priorities It is important that you prioritize the limited amount of time that you have on the box. We do not expect you to have to deal with XG business the whole time while you are on the box. However, we do expect that you are taking care of business or issues in a timely manner. That means getting what needs to be done, done. If you know you need to speak to a Captain for your weekly meeting, knock that out when you first get on, then enjoy your evening. If you become better at managing your time, your duties will not build up until you feel overwhelmed. Another point regarding setting priorities, if you have a Squad that is having issues or is not doing so well, you need to spend more time helping out in this squad than you need to with a clan that is doing well. It is your job to ensure the success of the clans in your section, so you need to be helping find solutions or providing input, or setting goals for clans that are in need.

Grass Wasn't Greener
As a reminder, when it comes to the Grass Wasn't Greener Applications, if there is any information regarding the returning member-only Section Leaders and higher are able to reply to the application to hit them up. If a General has any information regarding the person, they are to report to their Section Leader and the Section Leader will then reply to the application so that a GwG Researcher will know to reach out to them. We do not continuously hit up the researchers and ask why this person's application has not been picked up yet. GwG applications can sit there for up to 90 days before being picked up by a researcher. If a member was recently removed and in less than 24hrs after their removal and decided they want to put in an application to return or were removed due to certain events, their application will not be touched for 2 weeks.

"The reality is that the only change comes is when you Lead by Example"
UPCOMING NEW GAMES
As many of you may know, there will be new games dropping within the upcoming year. Please make sure you as leaders are talking to your members to ensure that they are not going to be left behind. If you feel that your members would fit better in another clan that plays the same game as they do, please find them a clan that they would be best suited in. If the member is wishing to remain in the clan, come to a reasonable solution and adapt. We don't want to push our members out because new games are dropping and some can't purchase the game instantly or some refusing to get the new games.

REMOVAL REQUESTS
When doing removal requests, please make sure that removal request reasons should be a brief message stating why they are being removed. If the member is to return and puts in a GWG, it'll help the researchers expedite the process more clearly. Putting down that the member LEFT is impeding the process of the GWG
Also, if you are putting in a mass removal request where the reason for removal is the same, please....please put them on one ticket. It isn't necessary to have multiple removal requests from one clan with all members listed as inactive. If you see that the removal request you put in earlier in the day has not been processed yet, go and edit the request then go from there.

LEADERSHIP PROMOTION

As a reminder recycle leadership is frowned upon, we should be making sure we are training and having proper leadership ready. When looking to promote keep in mind you are looking for your replacement and your potential growth in the community. With that being said no position needs to be filled right away, take the time to ensure they are the right fit.

"Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to high sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations."

Fall clean up-

As we are heading into the fall season it's that time of year where new games are coming out and alot of transfers happen due to clans changing games. Xs should be working with there Generals to clean up usergroups as well as putting in update clan request to change clans primary games.

Leadership is about making others better as a result of your presence and making sure that impact lasts in your absence.


Preparing your Clan for the Future

As a reminder Section leaders, it is your responsibility to ensure that every clan under you is running successfully by working closely with your generals in setting short-term and long-term goals. Encouraging them and ensuring that these goals are being achieved in a timely manner. If there are bumps in the road along the way, please make sure you are providing the assistance that they need to be successful. The things that you are teaching your generals, they too should be teaching the leadership under them as well.

Establishing Priorities

When you speak to your generals, and your generals speak to their captains, It is important that you prioritize your limited amount of time that you have on the box. We do not expect you to have to deal with XG business the whole time while you are on the box. However, we do expect that you are taking care of business or issues in a timely manner. That means getting what needs to be done, done. If you know you need to speak to a general(s) for your weekly meeting, knock that out when you first get on, then enjoy your evening. If you become better at managing your time, your duties will not build up until you feel overwhelmed.
Another point regarding setting priorities, if you have a clan that is having issues or is not doing so well, you need to spend more time helping out in this clan than you need to with a clan that is doing well. It is your job to ensure the success of the clans in your section, so you need to be helping find solutions or providing input, or setting goals for clans that are in need.

Planning Ahead

There are new games on the horizon and members will be buying new games that suit their interests. We need to make sure that we are noticing which games members are buying so clans can keep organized. If a primary game needs to be changed, be sure there is an update clan posted in the help desk to reflect this. Remember, "No Member Left Behind" also means that if a member(s) is playing different games than the rest of the clan, then they might need to go to a different clan that is on the same game(s) that reflect their interests.

Handling Issues:

When dealing with issues that arise within your clan(s), please remember to not listen to one side and take action. You need to find out ALL sides of the story before you take any action. This should include any and all evidence of what was said or done, and asking all other members involved with the situation to get their story prior to taking action.

Also please do not forget to talk with your peers if you want to get some advice (this isn't to say that you should do what they say or tell you, but it's to help catch another perspective).

Discord Team

Discord Team is looking for members interested in being a part of the team. If you are interested, please hit up your Division Leaders.

Tis the Season for Change

The season of change is here new games are coming out already with one being Call of Duty: Vanguard releasing 11/5/21 and many others to come. Now is the time to be thinking about where your clan is going and what the future holds. If you are planning on moving your clan to a new game then everyone needs to be on the same page within the clan. Meaning if members don't want to play the game or can't afford the game then it's time to find them a new home with the games they wanna play. Xs should be working with Generals to get members transferred out to other clans.

Let's grow the community together-

On the subject of new games, it is the perfect time to recruit new mems and bring new life into your divisions and clans. New games will have multiple new players that don't know what a gaming community brings or can do for them. You should be taking this time to leave open spots in squads or being in-game chat instead of party chat to pick people up and see if they are perfect for your clan or community as a whole. If you think they are good for the community and not your clan you should use your peers to get them in another clan somewhere else in the community.

Everything Can Change Tomorrow Are you Ready-

Emergencies happen in real-life or on the game that can affect your clan at any time. Is your clan ready? By this meaning
XS and general should be training replacements not only for splits but in case someone needs to step down that mean training captains to take over for gens and Lts to take over for captains. Not having a backup plan can cause clans to break or even fail cause positions are open. On the other side of the spectrum, this should already be happening to prepare for growth as well. Always have people ready to go in these spots cause Emergencies do happen and so does growth.

Generals-

No Man Left Behind

Generals need to make sure that not only themselves but captains are gaming with all members and meeting with members weekly to make sure all members are up to date with news and don't feel left out. If a member can't make meetings or games with other members due to the times they play then you should see if there is another clan they could transfer to that plays the same time they are on.

Fall Clean-Up-

As the year is coming to an end we would like to end and begin on a positive note by ensuring that our forums are cleaned up. Now is the time to get started on insuring your list, as well as captains, match the user group and all removals are done.

New games bring change

Generals with new games coming out change will follow. If you are changing to any of these games or adding a new game to your clan Please let your XS know to ensure your clan is up to date.

Happy Holidays
from
Xiled Gaming


The Holidays

Xiled Gaming would like to take a moment and wish everybody a Very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year,!! The Holiday season comes with the friendly reminder to be lenient, tolerant, & understanding, life comes first, But do not become complacent.

We know during the holidays our members will be spending time with family and travelling, we should be mindful of this when we are evaluating our inactive members.
The New Year brings Opportunities, New games under the tree, which mean more unity of games played within your Section, clans, squads, leaving no member behind, also the potential for recruits to join our Awesome Community is always a plus.

With the New Year, we as leaders of this community Need to start to think ahead & work with our generals to ensure the clan list reflects User groups, Discord reflects proper roles, actual members, removing those who don't need to be there. Be thinking of the Environments we create, and how we can make them better for our members, ask them, get feedback.

The next meetings will be held on January 16th


Whoot Whoot !!
Big shout out to Xiled Gaming as we celebrate Our community's 16th Birthday on January 6th !!! be on the lookout for new exciting Events from the Events Team on the calendar !!!

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.

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 Drama 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 the 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.
Favouritism
Favouritism 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.

“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.

"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.
