    Warum wir lieber feiern als loben

    Teams in der Challenge Zone sind motivierter, engagieren sich stärker für das Ziel und bringen eine deutlich höhere Performance.

  • Weather Man

    Somebody across the street just tried to better the weather [*] The guy came out about 5 minutes after it started raining and cleaned the outside of the window without any kind of security cord (the window is on the 3rd floor) [Update]: Now there’s two of them and it works!
