In the Internet appeared the video, where the candidates for Governor jump into the water with a seven-meter cliff near Sochi. The RBC, who posted the video, said that its authenticity is confirmed by one of the participants of the event.
It is known that jumping was part of training developed by the Russian Academy for the training of personnel reserve for senior positions. Thus a press-the Secretary of the Academy told the publication that after the descent from the cliff participants made Hiking a two-hour walk through a mountain gorge.
A frame from the video.
The publication reported that the training, which was held in Sochi from 3 to 7 October, was attended by over 60 people. Among them there are those who have only recently been appointed heads of the region — the head of the Samara region Dmitry Azarov, the Nizhny Novgorod region Gleb Nikitin, the Nenets Autonomous Okrug Alexander Tsybulsky, Novosibirsk region Andrey Travnikov, Orel region Andrey Klychkov and the Omsk region Alexander Burkov.
Among the coaches were the first Deputy head of the presidential administration Sergei Kiriyenko, head of the presidential administration Anton Vaino, defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov and others.
In addition to lectures and jumping into the water, there were other team events – “Sailing regatta” and “Racing the dragon boats”.
Political analysts say that such training the Kremlin was not satisfied. Before to future governors were international experts and sociologists. Now from learning theory, apparently, moved on to practice. Wanted to make a joke about Sparta and weak governors, who take off from the cliff, but such training is not new. Just before they were daily business, and not heads of regions.
Details of an unusual training governors revealed political analyst Dmitry Orlov:
– What future governors jumped from the cliff?
– Trainings must be comprehensive. In particular, we should stress and physical training. Because the Governor’s office, the execution of which involves significant stress. And of course, it should be checked. In addition key tests that form the team spirit. Any form of team mobilization and organization of the teams is very beneficial to the future work of politicians.
The results of this training can really affect his career? That’s not skipped the candidate, scared…
– No person shall bring such tests to the point of absurdity — like, not jumped across the Creek and did not become Governor. This comprehensive study of the person. Someone can be more strong in analytical work or in assessing the situation, someone faster makes a decision, and someone more energetic in teamwork when responding to calls. Since the solution is formed comprehensively, it can be assumed that varying proportions in the tests are presented and intellect, and determination, and reactivity and so on.
But governors, on the basis of such tests still assess the situation?
– Well, of course. In any ODI (organizational activity games) are evaluation criteria and a scoring system, a complex system of accounting for the results achieved by policies. And evaluated they are, again, complex.
