This is a story on how ChangeMakersON sent their boss on a one-day mega vacation!

CMON is a team that might best be defined as a group that laughs, works and searches for solutions together. Or, as Simona said, sometimes the team you work closely with, is able to see your needs better than you do yourself.

Thatโ€™s why for the Boss Day we sent our dear boss Simona to a forest retreat.

She was clueless she will have to chop wood for her open-air hot tub, row a boat to the middle of the lake and, most importantly, forget her phone for 24 hours.

โ€œThe biggest surprise to me was, that deep inside I really craved for such a getaway, no matter how short. It is such a joy to be with a team that hears you better than you do yourself.โ€
