Green fingers

I took advantage of the glorious sunshine this evening (which has been a rare occurence during the last few weeks) to totally massacre numerous bushes that occupied our garden. I’m afraid that the previous occupants had a rather unhealthy appetite for large green shrubs, lots of them in fact. I put this down to them thinking that it saved them weeding, yeah like hell it does!!

The best part of my day (in terms of time not enjoyment) was spent on Day 2 of my performance management course, which once again involved quite a bit of role playing. I’m really getting into this acting business and I’m quite taken by the thought of being a thespian *smile*

In all seriousness though, I have learnt a great deal over the last few days – particularly about influencing techniques and interactive skills. I won’t go into detail here, but those of you who’ve done performance management will know what I’m on about. One other thing worth a mention (and related to interactive skills) is paradigm puzzles, of which we had a go at a few. This was very mind bogglingly thought provoking!
