It’s been a couple of months since the new Taskforce Facilitator role was created and work began. In those months, not only have we seen a lot of information flow in as we start to track team and guild related data, but I have personally be able to step in and help some teams achieve goals or find help in achieving goals that they set at the beginning of the year. Overall there is lots to learn from the overview of it all, some of which I wanted to share with you, the 118 Fleet!
Since I’ve stepped into this role, it’s been a pleasure to help connect team leaders with the resources they need to complete their goals and get things done in a better and more efficient way. Time is a valuable resource here, so in connecting teams to the right people and things, we can save time for everyone while maintaining the flow of any given team. In the past couple of months, some examples of this have been connecting the Publicity and News teams so that our best stories can be shared throughout the internet, and finding additional team members for teams where only one or two people have been shouldering everything. We’re also working to make sure that everyone knows about the various opportunities that the fleet has available through our teams, guilds, contests, and more.
We also have seen some officers step up to facilitate or co-facilitate teams to get them back on track. The Character Guild has two new facilitators – LtCmdrs. Holly and Traenor, who are working to build a go-to forum and wiki area that can help old and new officers design and flesh out amazing characters. Commander Chen has also stepped in to help the overworked podcast team so that we will see the awesome podcasts 118 has gotten used to again.
It’s nice to see such a variety of officers from every ship in the fleet serving on the various teams we have as well. No ship is unrepresented in the mix, but there is always room for more – of course. With all of our teams on track to do great things for our fleet between now and the end of the year (and then again next year!), we’re always looking for people to volunteer for one of the many projects we have going on across our many teams.
Have a few minutes to spare? Check out our teams and join up to help spread the word about 118, make 118 a better place, or even help train the next generation of 118 officers today.
