The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
Midlands Challenge 08.
That looks like a very well put together website you've got their. Haven't gone through the whole thing but what I've seen is excellent.
I did notice that out of all the activities in that video... I've done nearly none of them!! But I feel that's a reflection on my unit and not yours.
Right, msr. I have four big problems with the video on that site.
1. Where the frikkin hell is the hang-gliding, skiing and abseiling? Are you suggesting people might want to join the TA in order to soldier? Did I say "?"? I meant "??!".
2. It's all big machines and fighting, fighting, fighting. WE WANT TO SEE CHEFS! At least you included the Mandatory Medics.
3. No cheesy strapline or chat in pub. COME ON. PUB!
4. I could only think of three problems.
This is nothing to do with me, just a tip off I received.
Apparently my leadership style is "Affiliative". Which is odd because I was pretty sure it was "Stalinist"...
Looks a good site but never fear, the adv trg is in there!
From the profile
I regularly go away for adventure training. Ive been to New Zealand where I did bungee jumping and white water rafting, the Pyranees and Andora where we did skiing, glacier walking and canyoning and Vietnam where we climbed Fansipan Mountain, the countrys highest peak and visited the world heritage site Halong Bay, he said.
Gotcha, msr. Plausible deniability. Will it be "wet ops" next? We hope so! Ooh! Suits you!
We used to go to Trauen a lot...
according to that I am a "Participative (Creates ideas; builds commitment)" Leader
which is nice...
Participative (Creates ideas; builds commitment)
,,,and thats what happens when you've been to so many management speak meetings !
I remember getting OK Travel from the TAC to Otterburn in the 80s. That was an adventure in its own right.
apparently I am coaching which surprises me as I thought "bloody rude" was more suitable but as I have just managed PCSO's for 2 1/2 years I think "coach" sums it up.
pace setting leads by example . If only the army would lower its standards to mine .I wouldn't follow me.
