Formal Evaluation of A slave’s performance:
Formal evaluations are useful to establish a way of evaluating a slave’s progress and performance. By doing so, you are establishing standards and goals to guide and improve your slave’s performance.
The objectives of the slave performance evaluations are to:
1) Assess actual performance against the duties, responsibilities, and standards you set, including the achievement of goals.
2) Recognize the slave’s special talents, capabilities, and achievements.
3) Promote the effectiveness of all slaves through articulation of the types of contributions they might make to the social unit (Master and his slaves) that will lead to greater service, obedience, unit growth and cohesion.
4) Encourage communication between the Master and slave and assist in the slave’s growth.
5) Provide a written record of the slave’s performance to support future training decisions (e.g., performance increases and adjusting assignments, or disciplinary action), a formal review of the slave’s performance should be completed on a quarterly or semi-annual basis.
This evaluation can be based upon 1) priorities and 2) service standards that you as Master have developed.
A discussion of both follows:
1) Priorities: (goals and objectives)
Guidance for Developing Priority Standards This element is intended to measure each slave’s success in meeting pre-determined and pre-defined goals and objectives. These specific standards developed under this element should be results driven (what will be accomplished) and should reflect the slave’s accountability for achieving measurable results. To the maximum extent possible, those results should be linked to your slave’s contract, rules of submission, goals, protocols and other guidelines. The priorities portion of the evaluation focuses more on where you are going as opposed to where you are at the present time.
Some areas to consider in the evaluation of priorities are:
1) Knowledge of goals, objectives and rules – possesses the knowledge necessary to accomplish all goal requirements. Understands the facts and information related to the completion of assignments.
2) Accomplishment of objectives – contributes to achieving Master’s goals, meets deadlines, adapts to changes, and uses resources efficiently. Uses good judgment when establishing priorities.
3) Initiative and creativity – self-motivated, develops new methods and procedures.
4) Interpersonal relationships – motivates and develops others, builds teamwork, communicates with other slaves, subordinates and others. Cooperates with others and projects a good image of slavery and her Master.
5) Dependability and Reliability – Follows through to meet schedules, makes sound decisions and positive contributions. Trustworthiness.
6) Contribution – Contributions made on the part of the slave to her slavery, the lifestyle, and the community.
This element is intended to address how the slave performs her responsibilities related to providing service to her Master or to any person he instructs her to service. Performance standards for this element could, for example, address cooperation with other slaves and others, communication, adaptability/flexibility, initiative, and working around barriers. When developing service standards, a Master should be aware of what service means.
Service has a two part meaning; behavior and state of mind. Both are defined as follows:
1) Completing assigned work or duties for her Master (following orders)
2) Following established rules and protocols 3) Being an assistant to, helping or benefit to her Master (Acting on behalf of or in conjunction with her Master, which involves her using her own judgment and intelligence for the pleasure and betterment of her Master)
B) State of Mind:
1) Being ready to help and be useful to her Master (being flexible an available). This is the willingness to accept spontaneous orders.
2) The active devotion to her Master (two parts)
A) Worshiping her Master Service to her Master by her worship of him is a way she shows her devotion and her slavery. By worshiping her Master she expresses her submission, devotion and the desire for his dominance.
B) Commitment to her slavery (two parts)
1) A willingness to give her time, energy and effort to pleasing her Master and learning the skills necessary for slavery.
2) A loyalty to her Master and honor of his dominance over her.
The following is a guide which can be used in evaluating a slave’s overall service performance:
1) Knowledge of Duties: How well does the slave know her duties and responsibilities? In order to successfully complete the duties and responsibilities of this position, what level of technical knowledge does the slave demonstrate?
2) Quantity of Service: Is the slave’s performance of duties adequate? How does her performance compare with your standards and with others?
3) Quality of Service: Does the slave make frequent mistakes? Does her performance require constant supervision in order to ensure accuracy? Does she take pride in her service and strive for excellence?
4) Initiative: Does she volunteer for new assignments and responsibilities? Does the she require a great deal of supervisory guidance regarding initiative?
5) Dependability/Responsibility: Does the slave consistently fulfill responsibilities? How much follow-up is required? How reliable is the slave?
6) Quality of Interpersonal Relationships: Does the slave create resentment in fellow slaves? How tactful is the slave when communicating with other slaves? Does she promote teamwork? Is the slave cooperative with fellow slaves?
7) Consistency: How consistent is your slave in the performance of her duties?
8) Punctuality: Is the slave consistently prompt? Is there an impact on her service to her Master?
9) Supervisory and Training Ability: Does the slave exert a positive influence on others? If granted supervision or training authority over other slaves, does she demonstrate fair and equal treatment of subordinates or trainees? Does the slave demonstrate the ability to make sound feasible training decisions? Does the slave attempt to resolve problems at the local level without involving you? In the same light, does your slave accept training or supervision from others you have assigned that authority to?
In addition, the following list can also be used as a guide for establishing evaluation criteria for different areas: Applies knowledge and skills Understands and applies rules Understands goals Follows instructions Completes task on time Pays attention to accuracy and detail Accepts guidance Works well with others Personal appearance Ability to perform tasks independent of supervision Assumes responsibility for actions Takes effective action without being told Communicates information to her Master Understands and adheres to Master’s rules and protocols Willingness to learn new skill
Establishing slave modes (levels) is a key to effective management of slaves:
I use three levels or modes for a slave.
1) “Slave mode.”
2) “Service mode.”
3) “At ease mode.”
The slave mode having the highest protocol level and the “at ease” mode having the lowest protocol level with the service mode being in the middle. A slave is placed in a mode by voice command. Once a voice command is given to the slave informing her which mode I require at that time, her behavior changes to match the rules and protocols she has learned for that mode.
Modes are a very effective tool in slave management. It allows you to teach an appropriate behavior that you require at different times and places and with a simple voice command change your slave’s behavior to match your desires. It allows you to determine the amount of control you wish at any moment and direct your slave in a single command. It takes time to teach the higher modes to the slave, but the time spent in training pays off. In each mode the slave’s behavior that includes speech, PRESENTING to her Master, dress, and eating habits are different. For example, if you wish to spend a day of discipline training, you can order her into the slave mode and the mode itself provides a high level of training.
In the slave mode she is not allowed to speak without permission and she is required to have your permission to do almost everything. This alone provides focus on her slavery and structure to her training. If a slave is placed in the slave mode, she knows from her prior training that she can’t use the following items unless ordered to: 1) Food/drink (water is an exception) 2) Electronics, including telephone, — exceptions: alarm clock, cooking equipment 3) Furniture both public and private without permission. 4) Clothing (generally a slave presents herself in the “slave mode” without clothing).
She also knows that she is to PRESENT herself to her Master each time she enters the room he is in or before leaving the room he is in. In fact, most of her movements, including going to the bathroom require prior permission. Her speech pattern is very formal. In the slave mode she is required to use “Sir, Yes Sir, Thank you, Sir” when responding to an order given to her as opposed to just “Yes, Sir” in the service mode. The following of the speech pattern requires more focus on her part.
A less formal mode, but still an effective mode for a slave to serve her Master in is the service mode. It still requires a slave to PRESENT to her Master but is less restrictive in speech and behavior. Teaching different modes can be a very useful tool for Masters. It requires more of your time early in training and also requires the Master to develop his MODES, but will pay off in the long run.
I recommend that the modes be put in writing so your slave can study and learn them. The object is to provide a clear path for your slave to follow and studying written protocols and rules is helpful in that process. If you have never trained a slave in the use of Modes before it will help you to have them in writing.
Good leaders sometimes make people unhappy. But in the long-run, a well-trained slave will be happy.
