With my Assistant Directors at the moment having some strategic time out looking at how far we've come in the last year, and where we need to get to. Spent today looking back over things that have gone well, and things that haven't. Tomorrow we're looking at the results of some psychometric tests we've been doing, looking at our relative strengths and weaknesses and how we can work together and complement each other. Also did some interesting team building exercises, including being guided over an obstacle including an inclined plank and a horizontal ladder, whilst blindfolded, wearing a mask, and with no-one else allowed to touch you. It made for some great photos, which I'm sure will find their way into a caption competition in the departmental newsletter!
It was while we were away at a similar time last year that Sheffield flooded, and we were oblivious to it. Hope we don't have anything as traumatic happening in our absence this time!
