Going on the corporate trip is the best way to get to know people you are working with. Last weekend we went on the rafting trip. Besides experiencing the extreme I’ve got a chance to discover one important thing. When there is a vacant place in the boat driven by the person that everyone loves people want to take it. The very uncomfortable, not cool, even not very safe place but next to a great leader. We want it and we’ll fight for it. Read the rest of this entry »
Did you ever find yourself wanting something really bad and ending up buying something similar but not quite what you wanted?
