Sounds like you have a good group of officers cause even when you are assigning duties and having officers critique themselves it didnt sound like they fought you or had drama, heres the thing though.A bit of leadership I learned is people will get away with what you let them get away with. Its great to set requirements for people, and you shouldnt have to "Make an example of someone" for not doing their job in a volunteer position, but as guild leader you should be checking up with the officers and asking for progress reports on a weekly/frequent basis. If an officer says i will do "x" this year, you should ask constantly throughout the year how their goals are going.For the co-gm who wrote the inital question, just go with the mentality of "friendly but diligent leader". Set what you expect from your officers and stick to it. If they dont do what you expect of an officer you dont need to get mad or upset or sad, just tell them, nothing personal but i need the officers to do this, if you do not have the free time to fulful this volunteer role please let me know you do not have the time to be an officer... if they still dont do their job, you gotta replace them... its not about drama, or punishment, its just thats a job and you need a person there who will actually do it. case closed.Hope this advice helps! :)
