We've been having a bit of a shortage on leaders lately. Most of us have been wanting a break from leading due to life circumstances and the need to take care of our own Spark journey.
Right now, Jackie (JACKIE0913) has been so very helpful in leading this team pretty much by herself. She plans on staying on at this point and I plan on giving her my "seniority" (for what it's worth, since SP really doesn't have a primary leader system in place).
Jackie's been doing a fabulous job leading the team and heading up new challenges that she's put together and lead all by herself. I'm very pleased that she's been so willing to pull up all the slack around here, as I've just sorta slipped away with live being so busy. Thank you much, Jackie, for all the help that you've given so far and for what you're willing to continue doing.
But, I'd rather not have her leading all by herself, as it can become a very daunting task. It's especially helpful to have at least 2 people who give out challenge information during one of the big challenges. We also used to have weekly challenges at one time too, but we've become so busy that we haven't done them in quite a while.
So possible positions that are part of the leadership team are:
Challenge writers/developers--those that come up with ideas and those that develop them into a full/complete challenge. At some point, all can help on this, even if it's not a primary focus--we do all work together to make sure that it's a challenge that is fun and makes sense.
Weekly Challenges--usually done by one person (doesn't have to be, just the way it was in the past), who comes up with ideas and then puts them out every week, usually has something to do for each day (could be the same thing every day or different things).
Challenge officials--those who give out the information as needed--either based on time or arrival of a person/team. This can be something that can come up at any time day/night. It's preferable to have two people at a time (at least) to help run it, as it's always something going on. Leaders can rotate in/out for different challenges so that not always the same people have to be "in the know" for it. Leaders can always participate in the challenges--if they are also "in the know", they are not allowed to help pick whatever kind of choices there are to make.
Greeters--we always like to have people greeting new people that come to the team. This can be a response on a "new to team" thread, a welcome message on their SparkPage or in SparkMail, or even a SparkGoodie. It's not required to be a team leader to do this, but it's an option if you want to.
There are probably other possibilities out there as well, but this will probably give you an idea of what's done and see if something interests you. If you want to be a leader, then please post here about yourself.
How long you've been on SparkPeople?
How familiar are you with SparkPeople and its various features?
How long you've been a member of Wii Exercise SparkTeam?
How much of a gamer are you--were you a gamer before the fitness games really kicked off, do you know a lot about different fitness games, what's your general background with video games?
What would you be interested in doing if you were selected to be a leader?
Anything else of interest that you want to share with us?
And, btw, absolutely NOTHING will "disqualify" you from this position. When we first started up the leadership team, most all of us was new to this team. I just ask these questions to help make the decisions and/or to just get to know you all. SO, if you are at all interested, then FILL OUT THE FORM!! We're pretty open at this point, and not as picky as it may sound.
Thank you all for the incredible ride this has been being a leader here. And, you'll never fully get rid of me--I just plan on stepping down for a good long while.
