Last week we asked Club Leaders to nominate their Club with a story about how their Club has taught their leader a valuable lesson. Today we salute Greatest Escape for teaching their leader, Kim, the value of teamwork.
In Kim’s own words:
The most important thing I’ve learned as a Club Leader is it’s all about teamwork and having fun! There is no “I” in team and each member is as important as the other.
Having unrealistic Club rules or minimum requirements often puts too much pressure on teammates and takes the fun out of playing. We keep our rules to a minimum and focus on having fun and enjoying one another’s company through chat while playing. We support and encourage one another. I have started a “player of the week” within our club where we spotlight a teammate each week for their efforts and accomplishments. Each member congratulates the winner and thanks them for all they have done.
I am immensely proud of the team we have created & everyone expresses how happy they are to be a part of Greatest Escape! We are competitive and have worked hard to become a top 200 Club but more importantly we have an amazing Club and it’s because of each and every member of our team. That’s really what this game is all about!! Thank you Tripeaks for bringing together 25 people who truly love each other’s company!
We did hear from several other Clubs and wanted to highlight a few of the things they said about what they’ve learned from their Clubs:
From Karen of Poi’s Playground:
Being a leader works best when everyone is a leader for the best interests of the whole team! We all play because we love to play! It’s a group of talented and smart folks. I open up most decisions to the team and let the group decide what they want to do. We have no minimums. We have people who don’t use chat and don’t play the perk we are on and it works just fine. We have scored in the top 500 several times now and are getting some of the extra perks. We chat like old friends all day long. Some new players are now scoring 25-70,000 points because we all share tips and info. When other teams recruit us we laugh and tell our teammates how happy we are right where we are!
And finally – from Sandy of Castaways:
What I have learned from this team is: you don’t have to live in the same town to be great friends—you don’t have to meet in person to care about and to know someone – I believe we truly care about each other and many of us have said we have made friends for life! One of our players is quite ill with lupus and another is getting ready to have surgery – we have lifted them up together in prayer and we feel that we have a caring bond for each other.
Our strategy and our motto is to make our goal each week, which we do, and to have fun! We don’t take each other for granted—if we can’t play or make our goal personally – we are courteous and let our team mates know—we have each others backs!!!
I would just like to say to the TRIPEAKS community: Have fun with your game – get to know your team mates – don’t miss out on the blessing of new friendships! Focus on the game and winning, but don’t forget about people – some may be lonely and the contact with each of their team mates may be the only light in their day!!
Thanks to everyone who submitted their Club for this one! If you have any ideas for future write-in subjects for the Club of the Week, please send us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
