Over the last few months one of the things I have been busy with is this interesting course from the NCSL.
The course involves several processes through which you make changes and improvements to your leadership skills.
It began with a questionnaire which needed 10 people to complete some really awkward questions about you and the way you work. I also had to answer the questions about myself. The results were then amalgamated and I received a printout showing the average results with a comparison of my own answers. This all revealled that I actually had quite a good understanding of what people thought of my skills. It also highlighted areas that I could develop as a leader.
The areas were then used to help me choose online units and skills workshops which will help me to improve skills.
I am midway through the whole process now, so it's time I recorded some of my thoughts. Over the next few weeks I'll try to post these.
