April 25th was a red letter day for me, because I got to meet Brennen. Let me provide a little background before introducing you to him. As many of you know, we conduct The Leadership Challenge® Workshop at a unique outdoor education facility just outside of Cincinnati. It is called Camp Joy, and camp is a very appropriate description.
Like many camps, our participants stay in “rustically elegant” cabins, sleep in bunk beds (six or so to a room), and figure out how to deal with those who snore, as well as how to share a couple of showers. However, the food is fabulous and the evening campfire underneath a star-filled sky is a terrific way to relax and build relationships. After three days, people leave with wonderful memories of their experience at Joy – although admittedly looking forward to sleeping again in their own beds.
