In addition, had prepared score sheet comprising of ideal qualities, specific skills and supervisory skills. The former helped in giving us insight into the views on the latter. As expected, extremely varied answers, showing up extremely different levels of ability and potential ability. For example, the lowest people skills had the highest specific skills, specific skills in any case being the lowest section of marks as being the easiest to teach. Will watch with fascination during next couple of weeks how my right hand and left hand sort the wheat from the chaff in the final stages of the line managers trials. From my point of view, though, it was notable that the more arrogantly confident they were, the lower they scored. People with moderate degrees of confidence and high enthusiasm for learning are clearly more my sort of managers than those who – quite wrongly – think themselves perfect already.
