The Guild Leader Introduction

The guild leader is a weekly series focusing on all the day to day issues with running a successful in game guild and to get you on track to be a better guild leader.

I have found a complete lack of good information on running a guild so I decided to cover everything I have found along the way while several successful guilds. Being a guild Leader can be a lot of work, but it doesn’t have to be that way. We will discuss a lot of the common issue you will run across while at the helm of a guild.

To me being a guild leader you need to use common sense more so than the next person. What do I mean by that? Well as a guild leader you will be put in many situations you don’t want to be in and as this happens you need to be able to make a decision and stick by that decision. You will have to come this conclusion for the most by using your old friend common sense.

The Guild Leader must have thick skin!

As a guild leader you will need to have a thick and be able to take criticisms and react to these criticisms appropriately. No matter how likable you are, no matter what a nice guy or girl you are, you will have to get into your mind that some people will not like you and you will have to understand that as the guild leader.

As a guild leader you are the first line of defense for your guild. You are the fibers that hold the guild together as one. So remember to proactive on all matters that need to handled, it is OK to delegate your authority, just make sure that you don’t spread yourself too thin.

I would hope to any of the readers of this column that you will get some ideas and that you didn’t fall into any of the traps that I did as a new guild leader. Being a guild leader is tough enough, but being a better guild leader is what I will strive for in this weekly series.
