When students are met with opportunities to travel abroad, they too often don’t understand how travel skills can translate into leadership skills that employers desire. In this talk, Candace illustrates how travel has helped her enhance important leadership skills in the workplace and how it can do the same for those who want to or have traveled abroad.
Through delightful storytelling, she recounts how driving on the other side of the road forced her to be adaptable, how a tuk tuk driver raised her consciousness around collaboration and much more.
