On My Watch: Post #8--Walking the Plank!
Walking the Plank: This chapter is about how Johnson lost her job by being the captain of a ship that hit an iceberg—or in this case rammed into a scandal for excessive spending for a training event in Las Vegas. She talks of the complexity and risk of running any federal agency, especially as large as GSA. You can also feel her pain, embarrassment of public humiliation, and her now reflective wisdom about government service, scandal, congressional theater, pain, and especially resilience.
