5 Ways to Open Your World Outside of Work


In Great Leaders Grow (Berrett-Koehler, 2012), authors Ken Blanchard and Mark Miller suggest that leaders who expand their views outside of work are more creative, personally fulfilled, and can contribute more to their job.

  • Travel can lead to life-changing experiences and broaden a leaderís perspective.
  • Volunteer work can improve a leaderís sense of self and be a fulfilling activity.
  • Reading can revive a leaderís creativity and can lead to more innovative ideas.
  • Exposure to the arts by going to museums, plays, and concerts is another way of improving a leaderís creativity and expanding their cultural experiences.
  • Adventure experiences like skydiving and mountain climbing will allow leaders to live a healthy life style and give them a revived sense of energy.
