Alliance Roles Ruminations:
Good Communication is the Key to Strong Teamwork
Members of this Alliance should show up regularly, to use all their titan flags and to use all their war flags, to the best if their abilities. Members should ask questions about how to get better results from their efforts, and how to better develop their hero rosters, troops and strongholds, utilizing the communication tools organized by Leadership. Members join Alliances to fight Titans, and to fight in Alliance Wars. Members do that in order to have fun, achieve personal satisfaction, gain knowledge, make personal progress, and win good loot.
Leadership isn’t a popularity contest, or an empty title devoted to vanity. Leadership Roles are positions of service to the shared goals of the organization, for the benefit the Members of that organization. It is a Contract of Mutual Responsibiliy.
Elders model good member behaviors and support members as they develop thier benches, strongholds and raid strategies. Elders actively seek out and share what knowledge and experience they have to make their Alliance stronger.
Elders also actively participate in leadership discussion groups. They should contribute input on member development, promotions, and the unpleasant possibility of disciplinary actions.
Co-leaders are the NCOs of the alliance, responsible for modeling the expected team-centered behaviors. Co-leaders help train newer members, using their experience, and all the information they can glean from outside forums and user groups. Co-leaders help Elders develop into co-leaders.
Co-leaders help the Leader develop titan attack and war assault strategies. They contribute input on promotions, demotions, and membership removals, if they prove necessary.
Co-leaders can assist with recruitment, orientation, and retention of members.
The Leader is the Captain of the ship. The Leader needs to have a clear vision for the priorities of the alliance, and how those objectives are going to be achieved.
Leaders help develop Members into Elders, Elders into Co-leaders, and Co-leaders into future Leaders.
The Leader should also be the final arbitrator for alliance discipline, especially in the case of removals.
Good Leaders are Decisive in their Actions and Clear in communicating their Priorities. The Leader is where the buck stops last.
The number One priority of the Leader is to make sure that the Alliance serves the needs of the Members. Without that, there is no point to having an Alliance.
