6 of the best reasons to combine training with travel
Often, we tend to view travelling as a holiday, or the chance to enjoy some time away from work - but travelling can also help to make us better leaders and more productive team members.
From taking the opportunity to learn about different cultures to gaining valuable communication skills, travel has a positive impact on both our personal and professional development.
At London Training for Excellence, we’ve always believed that combining professional training with a travel experience can help to develop confidence and improve interpersonal skills to further grow your career.
Read on to discover how travelling can boost your career and personal development.
Travel builds your confidence
Some skills are best learnt through experience – and travelling helps individuals to develop confidence, deal with challenges as these arise and become more self-reliant. These are all important soft skills that can be applied in the workplace when you return.
Build connections around the world
Platforms such as LinkedIn provide a valuable way to grow your network in a virtual world. However, combining a training course with travelling allows you to forge new connections in person, who can add diversity and innovative ideas to your network.
If you are considering relocating, having a global group of connections could open the door to plenty of career opportunities across the world too.
Develop diversity awareness
Modern businesses are increasingly diverse and global, and travelling can help you to nurture a multicultural workforce by building trust and better communication with a diverse team.
Looks great on your CV
If you are looking to take the next step in your career, then your travels can help you build a more impressive CV. During a job interview, talking about how you combined training and development with a rich travel experience will help you to stand out from the other applicants – and equip you with some individual answers to those personal interview questions.
Helps the decision-making process
Exploring the world and immersing yourself in diverse cultures, helps you to make decisions independently and quickly – especially when travelling alone. By travelling, you’ll be continually improving your decision-making skills and assessing risks, which are invaluable for taking a step into a management or leadership role.
After a long two years of travel restrictions, we are all looking forward to the chance to have an adventure and explore other cities across the globe.
As well as all the professional benefits of attending an LTFE training course, you’ll also have plenty of time to experience all that your destination has to offer. From immersing yourself in the local history and culture to enjoying the cuisine and sights, you’ll be amazed at how much you can grow and learn with a London TFE training course.
