- doesn't do anything
- doesn't show up
- doesn't know anything
- shows up, unprepared
- reports when threatened or reminded twice
- has a vague idea what's going on
- reports without anyone watching
- shows up at the right place at the right time
- pays attention and learns as time goes on
- gathers information from more than one source
- dispenses information to more than one person
- knows enough to do a good job and still willing to learn
- goes to great lengths to learn what's going on
- informs all who need to know in a timely and useful fashion
- has regard for the needs and feelings of those he works with and for
- Credit people for their ideas, cooperation, assistance, and attention,
either in your reports, or to them, or to others
- (it makes you look good, and makes them come back).
- Exchange ideas with other officers in or outside the kingdom.
- Be tolerant of other groups' differences and opinions.
- Lead by example if you can.
- If you make what you're doing look fun you'll get helpers and appreciation.
- Teach other people what you're doing in the course of your work.
- Work toward making your group look good, in small ways and large.
- A strong, cohesive group is to everyone's advantage. If you can make
your seneschal look good, and the baron, or the king (or whatever level
you're working on), your job and theirs will be easier.
- Learn what other officers need done and offer your help when you can,
- or be observant of competent people so you can play matchmaker between
ability and need. Being involved makes people enjoy the Society. Feeling
unneeded or ignored drives them away.
