Office Training

For the past two days I have attended a training course aimed at becoming a better leader. Whenever I attend a training event that focusses on psychological values rather than tangible skills I can't get past memories of the training episode of The Office, where David Brent undermines the trainer with his different and often innacurate interpretation of the various metaphoric expressions.

On the course I was reminded of one of my favourite scenes from The Day Today, where office managers attended a course on "disassemblage". It is classic comedy from Chris Morris's finest creation that also planted the seeds for Gervais's masterpiece.
