As a successful leader, you have likely completed a diverse menu of classes, trainings and workshops. For seasoned professionals, getting to the next level is not about skill development or competence, but mastering the art of leadership. This capability is far more elusive and demands an innovative approach.
By engaging in unfamiliar experiences, you can unlock the single greatest asset you have for becoming a more effective leader: new insights. Instead of listening to a lecture on leading through crisis, travel to the Johnson Space Center and re-live the triumphant return of Apollo 13. Instead of talking about coaching, be coached in such sports as Paralympic volleyball and hear directly from athletes and sports scientists at the U.S. Olympic Training Center.
