Hi I don't mean this in a critical way but no it will sound harsh - so why do you think being a Deputy is something yyou can excel at. As I say I'm not having a dig - I would want you to explain to me why you think you could be a brilliant Deputy, because that's what I'd want. Please consider you've just described yourself as someone who has run out of energy and patience with staff who are resistant to change . . . . .I'd want a Deputy with energy and patience and ability to effect change.
