6 Ways Travel Can Improve Your Professional Life

  1. 1. 6 ways TRAVEL can improve your PROFESSIONAL LIFE ByGloriaMayfieldBanks
  2. 2. Traveling makes you a better creative thinker. When you travel, you broaden your perspective and learn how to think in ways other than how you’re accustomed. The more places you go, the more people you’ll meet who can share their thoughts and ideas with you and spark creativity within you.
  3. 3. Travel can help you manage your emotions. Sometimes flights are delayed or cancelled; sometimes luggage ends up on a different flight. I make sure to heighten my people skills during times of high stress, I try to put myself in the shoes of others, and I remind myself that other people are feeling stress, too.
  4. 4. Traveling forces you to improve your communication and social skills. It takes a lot of confidence to walk up to people whose language you don’t speak and try to communicate what it is you need. But every time I successfully communicate with someone in a different country, I know I’ve sharpened my communication skills a little more.
  5. 5. Traveling makes you a better negotiator. Undoubtedly due to the adept social skills they learn, travelers are excellent negotiators. They can use their knowledge, charm, and cleverness to help them get better deals — be it on hotels, flights, or local nightlife— a skill that’s directly applicable in the professional world where you’re bound to run into negotiations.
  6. 6. Traveling can make you more self-confident. Traveling provides you with experiences that force you to be confident. Be it climbing the highest mountain in a country or even asking a stranger for the time, each little accomplishment as you travel helps boost how you view yourself.
  7. 7. Traveling helps your problem-solving skills. When you travel, you’re apt to run into roadblocks and snafus, but each obstacle you encounter only increases your knowledge of how to solve problems effectively and efficiently. I oftentimes find myself with a delayed flight or weather problems, and to help avoid frustration , I always bring a little work with me!
