My professional association, the NAHT, like many others runs CPD courses. Naturally at the NAHT these are concerned with developing leadership skills. Imagine my surprise when, in their recent mailing containing a list of forthcoming courses, I read this:
…a highly participative course that draws on a range of techniques including NLP and Jungian psychology as well as the latest research in leadership and management theory.
Since this course is titled Heading for Headship of Independent Schools, I am now feeling somewhat inadequate! In order to be the Head of on Independent School am I required to brush up on my Post-Freudian, Neo-whatever psycholanalysis? Well, I suppose it beats having to do NPQH!
