What does your team call its "leader"?

What does your team call its student head? Just curious.
We have used captain for all up until this year, where we now have a “commodore”. :wink: She’s also occasionally referred to a Czar, or Czarina. And of course, we call her captain as well.

We have two student leads, but right now we’re in the process of re-structuring our team, so maybe I can suggest Comodore, it sounds pretty sweet… :stuck_out_tongue:

We don’t have a team leader. We have a leadership team.

we currently like the idea of Capitano, but i’m pushing for Kingpin, Skipper, Honcho, Overlord, or “Hey You with the Face”. You can have a lot of fun with this

Our team has a captain and a co-captain but with renovation of 204, who knows what going to happen next year.

Last year we had ‘Major Tom’, this coming year it should end up being ‘King Heatwave’.

w00t, post 100 (after over 1 year)

This past year, we restructured and made the leader the Executive Director. But he ended up not doing much so we are dropping the job, divereting all leadership to the Vice Presidents. But the Board of Directors (aka mentors) have surpreem power and can over rule if they want. Maybe we should call the VPs the Triumverant (sp?), or quad-umverant…?

It’s officially the office of the President, but I prefer to be called Il Duce or Supreme Dictator. Either will suffice.

She Who Is All Good and Holy

No, but seriously we really don’t have one lead person. Somehow the team kinda just meshes together in an odd system of checks and balances. Of course, there are a few people that are more of a leader to a team than others.

I have NEVER called him that! It’s “Hey you!!”

El Presidente of coarse!hence the sombrero team 56 had at competitions this year. anything else would just be silly

Hey, where is the “Supreme overlord, all powerful potentate, ruler of all I survey, emperor to the stars, leader of the meek, master of the mighty, rajah of robotics, baron of brazing, caesar of “C,” crowned head of computation, czar of the cart, kaiser of keyways, lord of the lathe, monarch of the mill, prince of the punch, rex of Vex, shah of the saw, modeling maharajah, plasma-cutting pasha, electronics emperor, mechanical mogul, sultan of structure, tensile-strength tycoon, majesty of metal, sachem of steel, magnetic magnate, khan of kevlar, grinding gerent, king of chrome, soldering sovereign” option on poll?


“other” :wink:

Do you have anyone in mind for this title?

Same way my team is… We have selected subteam captains… They really became pointless, because some teams only had 1-2 kids and didn’t really need a captain or anything, or like our construction team had 2 students really stand out do most of the major work on the robot, and because the captain wasnt one of those two students he really didn’t know what to say during the captain/advisor meetings every week… We had no 1 leader except at the compeitions we had the team captain (me) and head inspection student, and we were really just given titles to sign the inspection papers and that was it.

Well officially it is captain on the theory that a club has a president and a team has a captain. However I do occasionally get the title Castro, Hitler or other dictator, there is always a name, however I do like Ceasar of “C”.

“I told you. We’re an anarcho-syndicalist commune. We take it in turns to act as a sort of executive officer for the week. But all the decisions of that officer have to be ratified at a special biweekly meeting. By a simple majority in the case of purely internal affairs, but by a two-thirds majority in the case of more…”

No, seriously, that’s about it. We don’t have a major power structure, we just all pretty much work and then at the final inspection whoever happened to be talking with the inspector just signs off as captain.

For the OCCRA season, we have co-captains, and for FIRST, we have a leadership team consisting of chassis, electronics/programming, promotions/communication, and appendage leaders. The project manager oversees this leadership team, and, in effect, the whole team.

As for less formal names, my team called me the Mother Duckling a lot… :rolleyes:

No, but we are taking applications…

Soldering sovereign I think I might have to take that title. While we have a commodore of the team we have so many groups with leaders. Lil’ Lavery and myself are co-captains of outreach for example and the list of leaders goes on and on… …
