I got this photo from a friend. It was 2007. The photo shows the management team of the software company where I landed after my MBA. I am the one with the black tshirt. It was a team building exercise. It was definitely the best team building week I had. Ever.
My boss, the second from left with the green hat, had the idea to spend a week sailing from the Tuscany coast to the Elba island. It took four days. We had two hour per day of meetings and business conversations. The rest was just sailing and sea life.
I cannot forget that week. The team was dismantled two years later when the software unit was merged with three other giant divisions of the same company. But we are still in contact. And that experience is still among our best recalls.
