Yesterday I addressed an open letter to the Democratic Alliance -- basically to deal with a matter of serious abuse. I posted it yesterday on this blog. I received a reply from the Federal Deputy Chairperson -- which was a particularly dim performance, I thought. But never mind that. I thought I would do her a favour. I assessed her response on ten foundational leadership principles and priorities, and sent her my report gratis by return of post. I have an MA summa cum laude (equivalent) in Leadership from the USA, She scored 14%. However let's bump that up to 20%, to be generous. OBSERVATION: One needs to bear in mind, however, that this was based on a very small sample of her behaviour -- and perhaps one should allow for some bias on my part (but I don't think so).
