Leadership

I write this from the confines of my bed where i am doubled up with stomach cramps, it appears to be food poisoning, from a dodgy dip supplied from Dominos Pizza which I had last night. current time between toilet rushes is 15 minutes, and reducing I am glad to say.

I know I've been quiet the last few days but I have been on a Leadserhip Skills course in deepest Darkest Dorset. It was pretty intensive didn't get a chance to leave the hotel for the 3 days of the course, infact several others on teh course seemed to never make it to their rooms; being permanent fixtures at the bar.

The course involved us volunteering to be the team leader at some stage of the 3 days for particular tasks..guess who volunteered for the biggest and most complicated one to run {puts up hand}, 9 seperate tasks to be completed by 12 people in fluid sub-teams in under 1 hour; although we didn't complete the tasks (6/9) what we did was considered to be a sucess and I got very good feedback from the reat of the group and the trainers for my leadership style and skill...which was nice

Oooops.....off to the toilet again.....

Put a complaint in to Dominos - you might get a free pizza? ;-)
Probably not what you want to think about between loo visits huh?
Take Care

I've always hated those forced leadership/team building sessions. Seem to be more for the amusement of the organizers than the growth of the participants. Yes, I am a little bitter! But, glad it went well for you and hope you're feeling better.

If its of any comfort,vomiting germs spread disease faster than diarrhoea germs.

Ah, leadership. Some are born into it. Others, including some of the morons for whom I used to work, should have had their leadership pins taken away at an early age.

Safe travel, and feel better soon!
