Why a road trip might be a good idea for leadership development

We may be underestimating our leadership skills if we have ever enjoyed a road trip. In fact, most of us would agree that travelling quite often not only helps us gain life experiences, but also sharpens our leadership skills.

CarRentals put a unique twist on understanding lessons on leadership, having created eight leadership lessons that we can learn from the road. Some of these leadership lessons include mapping out a plan, adapting to breakdowns, and working collaboratively with your team.

We must map out and plan our road trips in order for everything to run smoothly, adapt to unexpected outcomes such as running out of gas on the highway, and also communicating with your co-riders to work together to reach your destination.

Check out the infographic below for a light read, and feel free to share it around!

Leadership lessons learned from the road

1. Set a goal: Pick a destination

As a leader, knowing the big picture and having a clear destination allows you to better measure your progress, stay motivated and focus on your end goal. Living in this technologically driven time, we’re usually able to see how many miles and how long it takes to get to a destination.
