Under the headline, "Consultant Works with Commissioners at Retreat," Grand Junction Daily Sentinel Reporter Le Roy Standish writes:
"The Mesa County Commissioners looked themselves in the mirror Thursday with the help of a consultant."
"Commissioner Craig Meis was fidgety, bouncing his knee up and down constantly."
"Commissioner Steve Acquafresca was quizzical, seeking a better understanding of information provided."
"And Commissioner Janet Rowland was jabbed and rose to the defense of her aggressive nature."
"The trio gathered at Palisade’s Wine Country Inn for their annual retreat. To begin the daylong affair, Sue Hanson, business consultant and owner of Sue Hanson Speaks, reviewed exams the commissioners took last month. The tests were intended to reveal the commissioners’ personality types, such as dominant, analytical or passive."
"The results showed Rowland and Meis as being dominant, go-getters. They set goals, accomplish them and move on to the next challenge in rapid order."
"Acquafresca, on the other hand, is more analytical. He must mull over questions, work through problems, analyze the facts and then when personally assured the choice is right, he acts."
"The test results showed conflict exists among the board members and in the board’s interaction with county staff, and Hanson said that’s OK."
“Conflict is just a natural part of people getting along together,” she said. “Conflict is important.”
