When you set off to find an adventure in your car, you develop a plan (your map route), find your team (your co-riders), create an agenda (set mini-goals), and prepare for breakdowns (unexpected outcomes). Road trips can teach us many lessons on how to lead a project and become a better leader, even if we do not recognize this right away.
Enduring on a road trip takes leadership skills, including adapting to unforeseen circumstances, communication, and collaboration, learning from your mistakes, mapping out a goal to your destination and more. Those who celebrate the successes of a road trip will soon notice they have acquired leadership skills they can use in other aspects of their lives. Whether it is leading a meeting or leading your family, these skills from a road trip will come in handy.
CarRentals has created a guide to 8 leadership lessons that we can take away from road trips to apply to our daily life and work life. Learn each skill in detail and become a better leader by recognizing your successes when you have road tripped.
