Case Study 1: The Joy in the Journey
Gary Schmidt, Director of Public and Government Affairs at Clackamas County knew he wanted to feel better about his work. Not only was he overwhelmed by the workload, he felt stressed regularly and found his creativity had waned. His team was stressed as well, and he was embarrassed to admit he didn’t know what he needed to shift his performance and the level of joy he took from his work. After getting a personal referral from a friend, he decided to start the conversation about leadership development with Michelle Rios, owner and principal of Blue Tiger Leadership, LLC.
