What is the best way to get in touch with you? Phone call? Text? ? Facebook post? Hand written letter?
Getting other people to do your work for you. The Keys to Delegation Ahoalan-Nachpikin Lodge – LLD 2014
What is Delegation? Merriam-Webster will define delegation as such: 1: the act of empowering; to act for another 2: a group of persons chosen to represent others
What does this mean? You can’t do everything by yourself, and we, as a lodge, do not expect you do everything. Thus, you will need help. It is imperative that you do your jobs to the best of your abilities, because if one of you cannot participate in a program, and set no delegate, there is no one to pick up the slack. Leaving us to do your job while also juggling our own.
What does this mean? Quite simply, it means two (2) things. First, you need have a committee. You are not a committee of one. You are a committee chairman In this committee, you must assign certain people specific jobs. These specialized members are at your disposal, doing whatever you may need them to do. They are there to do the jobs you may not be able to perform during an event. Such as doing registration, making sure the clan commissioners are busy, or conducting ceremonies.
What does this mean? Secondly, delegation infers that you will have a replacement at an event. If you are unable to attend, you must (and it is more imperative that you do this) set someone to do your job. If you are Vice Chief of Admin., and cannot attend an event, and no one knows how to run registration besides you, this event is not going to go well. YOU MUST HAVE A REPLACEMENT!!!
How to Delegate within a Committee Firstly, and most importantly, you must have a committee filled with people that are able to perform the jobs that you need done. These people are specialized for a reason, they are not people you wouldn’t trust. The best people for a committee are the ones who are seasoned in the Order of the Arrow, but is not limited to the LEC.
How to Delegate within a Committee Delegation from there would include the important items included within an event. They would not be worthless tasks as “Official Garbage Collector.” A task that would be delegated would be: Ceremonies, Cooks, Merchandise, Printing, Patch Design, or any other task that would need completing. NOTE: THIS DOESNOT MEAN YOU DO NOT DO ANYTHING DURING THE EVENT. IN THE END, IT IS YOUR JOB TO MAKE SURE THAT THESE OTHER JOBS ARE COMPLETED.
Delegating “S.M.A.R.T” The job you designate to a committee member would be Specific. No one wants to get a job description like, “Rake Leaves.” No one is going to rake all the leaves from Kia Kima, let alone Currier. The job would tell me when, where, how, and why. Secondly the job must be Measurable. This is allow the person to know when they’re done. An example of this is, “I need 500 copies of the Planbooks for Ordeal.” Not just, “I need Planbooks.”
Delegating “S.M.A.R.T” The next thing we as a committee need are Achievable & Realistic goals. These are goals that are going to be done before or at the event. An A&R goal would be asking a person to find Clan 9 at Ordeal. An un-A&R goal would be, “Hey, I need Clan 9 to build a bridge to Narnia in 10 minutes and it has to be done with only trees that are in oaken nature from the western part of Texas along the Arizona border. Oh, and the trees must be albino.”
Things wrong with that statement Narnia only exists in England “Oaken Nature” is not a real phrase Arizona and Texas do not touch, let alone have a border Albino trees. Need I say more.
Delegating “S.M.A.R.T” Finally the tasks must be Time Bound, meaning that they must be completed or able to be completed before the end of the event. These are planned ahead of time (Backdating; which will be covered later), and will require some of the most work. If all the steps are done, the event should run relatively smoothly.
Support & Checking Up The support list is a vital part of the process. If you cannot contact your committee, how are you going to make sure the jobs are getting done? This bring up the next and final point, checking up on your committee.
Support & Checking Up Checking up on your committee is a must. Your committee members have other commitments other than just the Order of the Arrow, most of us are in school, play sports / band, or have a girlfriend. We don’t always remember what you assigned us. You, as the head of the committee must make sure that we are reminded constantly so that you don’t look bad when it comes time to fulfill the job. Because in the long run, it’s your job.
The Task at Hand: Examples of Delegation The Ordeal Scenario: You’re the Ordeal Chairman. Jobs you have to do: Registration, Doubleknot, Wristbands, Dues Forms, Name Tags, Kia Kima / Currier Maps, Copy of Schedule for Lodge Members, Membership Cards, Lodgemaster, Pens, Receipt Book, Budget Sheet, Camp Reservations, Elangomats Secured, Elangomat T-shirts, Elangomat Handbooks, Clans divided, Spirit of the Arrow Booklets, Work Projects, Tools for Work Projects, Menu, Food List, Secure Food Items, Check w/ Dennis re: Kitchen, Service Patrol for Cleanup, Bags for Breakfast/Lunch for Ordeal, Flag Ceremony, Movie, Chapel Service, LEC Agenda, First Aid Station, Supplies (FA), Health Log (FA), Emergency Plan (FA), Kia Kima Display, High Adventure Promotion, NOAC Promotion, Project 2013 Promotion, Ceremonies Teams Confirmed, Outfits secured, Sashes Secured, Sites selected, Site Prep Crew, Props secured, Torches and Fuel, Brotherhood Teams, Outfits secured, Sashes secured, Site selection, Site Prep Crew, Membership Cards, Brotherhood Spirit of the Arrow Books, Props Secured, Torches and Fuel, Brotherhood Review, Brotherhood hike, Lodge Flaps, All other Lodge Merchandise, Accounting procedure, Recognition items, Inventory Sheets completed, Plan books, Lodge Flaps, Membership Cards, Teamwork Event / Games, Handbooks.
The Task at Hand: Examples of Delegation 1. Form a Committee 2. Delegate within the Committee 3. Check-Off jobs that are covered by other individuals 4. Check-Up to make sure jobs are getting done 5. Perform
The Task at Hand: Examples of Delegation Jobs after this process: Elangomats Secured, Elangomat Handbooks, Elangomat T-shirts, Clans Divided, Spirit of the Arrow Booklets. Your work load went from 238 items to 5. Delegation at its finest. Delegation can make or break an event.
What is Ordeal? Ordeal is our first opportunity as a Lodge to meet our new brothers, but it is also the most crucial point of our Lodge’s future. The Lodge Chief could meet and greet every single new member, but if the event did not run as well, the hope is lost. The “vets” of the OA are not the only ones who notice when events are run poorly.
How Do We Fix This? The most successful way of preventing this is backdating. This allows us as a Lodge to prepare for the worst. Murphy’s Law is the most common killer of Lodge events. And most, if not all problems could have been solved before the actual event started.
What is Backdating? Merriam-Webster’s definition: to put a date earlier than the actual one on; to make retroactive Simply, you plan. You plan an event starting a month before to six months. It is personal preference and depends on the significance of the event. Backdating will also be covered a little more in depth later today
Whose Job Is It? Ordeal? It’s OUR job. Ordeal is run at different points by different people. This is where delegation comes into play. Without delegation, Ordeal would be a complete headache for the Ordeal Chairman. But luckily, he has a team behind him to get the job done.
The Ordeal And You Your relationship to Ordeal matters mainly on your position in the Lodge. Rarely will you receive a job you have never done or are not already accustomed to, this is to make your life easier during the Ordeal and also the life of the Ordeal Chairman. Ex.: If you are Service Chair, it is your job to get Service Projects.
Starting the Planning Process The first thing you do in any planning process of an event is first make a schedule. Ordeal runs Friday – Sunday on a weekend in May and September. The schedule needs to be set in stone three (3) months before the event. The planning should start before or around this time also, meaning that committee members should be assigned jobs.
What’s My Role? VC Admin – DoubleKnot Registration, Wristbands, Dues, Name Tags, Maps, Copy of Schedule, Membership Cards, LodgeMaster (with LodgeMaster Chair), Receipt Book, Printed Budget, Camp Reservations. VC Admin will basically do all printing and registration.
What’s My Role? Ordeal Chairman – Elangomats Secured & Confirmed, Elangomat T-shirts, Clans Divided & Accounted, Spirit of the Arrow Booklets, Work Projects (with Service Chair), Tools for Work Projects, Head Elangomat Ordeal Chairman is the head of the Ordeal. All things will be asked of him on the dates, so his work load is completed before the event.
What’s My Role? Ceremonies, VC AIA, & Brotherhood Chair – Confirm Teams for Brotherhood and Ordeal, Regalia Secured, Drum, Sites Selected and Prepped, Torches and Fuel, Brotherhood Testing and Brotherhood Walk Ceremonies, VC AIA, & Brotherhood Chair will be mainly untouched during the Ordeal until their time to do ceremonies.
What’s My Role? Merchandise Chairman – Lodge Flaps (Accounted & New FDL), Lodge Merchandise (Accounted and Displayed), Inventory Trading Post is untouched until after ceremonies Saturday night, although it can be set up beforehand.
What’s My Role? VC Finance – Registration, Gross Income and Profit, Budget Made Service Chair – Service Projects, Head Commissioner First Aid & Safety Chair – First Aid Station (Supplied, Logged, Emergency Plan) VC Activities – Saturday Night Festivities Et Al – Used wherever needed
