Employees’ Feet Feel Heat

A “motivation day” organized by Tecnocasa, an Italian real estate agency, ended badly when 9 employees were hospitalized after walking barefoot* on a bed* of hot coals.*
Alessandro di Priamo, the former athlete* and motivational trainer who organized the event, said “Firewalking helps people overcome* their fears,* seek new challenges* and understand that most of what they see as their limits are self-inflicted.*”
None of the injuries* were serious.
Vocabulary:
barefoot – bosý
bed – vrstva
coal – uhlík
athlete – sportovec
overcome – překonat
fear – strach
challenge – výzva
self-inflicted – způsobený sám sobě
injury – zranění
Question for discussion:
Would you walk on fire if your boss told you to?
