5 Tips for Army Leaders

NORTHERN LIGHTS, UKAHALA–Some dream of being the first-in-command. But those who hold the position know it comes with tremendous work and responsibility. How does one lead well a Club Penguin Army? Prior Bumble, our revered first leader, shares 5 secrets to success.

Bipolar Disorder and FIVE ways to get your life on track ...

Commander Prior Bumble founded the Recon Federation of Club Penguin from scratch in 2019, and within a year built it to a peak max of 47 in battle. The army he created wields such a strong, unique culture that it has survived two years of relentless opposition. Love him or hate him (and we love him!), he led well. After sitting down with him in his office, we gathered his 5 tips to being a successful leader.

1. Build Community

Your job is not to strengthen the relationship of your soldiers to you. It’s to strengthen their relationships with each other. Comrades fight for each other and what their community stands for. Lend as much attention to building a distinct culture and creed in your army, one that fosters a sense of family, as you do to foreign affairs. 

2. Be Active Yourself

There is no way around it. You must lead by example. Be active, be at every event. Do twice the work that your hardest-working soldier does. 

3. Listen and Remember 

Listen to your soldiers. Know their dreams. Remember what they share of their life. Check in on them. Make it clear that you care about them and that they are not just a number. Remember their contributions and award them accordingly.

4. Have Guts

If you are a leader, you need to be willing to make risky decisions. Stand up for something and stick with it. Be willing to declare war. Be willing to sign an unusual treaty. Make. Moves. If you’re not making moves during your entire career as a leader, you’re not leading. 

5. Reflect

If you are religious, pray to be the best leader you can be. Pray for wisdom and strength. Treat your position as a sacred one, because a lot of people (hopefully!) are looking up to you. If you are not religious, consider reflecting on these things and making time away from the keyboard to think about being a good leader to your troops and how you can improve yourself to better meet the needs of your army. 

BONUS TIP!

And having a firm handshake never hurts.

There you have it, readers. Everyone’s leadership style is different, but these 5 tips can apply to any army or person. Lead your army to a good future!
