Bicycling is not just a physical exercise, but rather a mental exercise with application to our professional selves as well. Stacy Wall Schweikhart uses her experiences while biking to understand her preferences, strengths, and weaknesses at work in an article entitledCycling’s Lessons for Government Leaders. Though the article is written for other government officials, all types of people can learn about how biking can be applied to leadership skills. For example, biking requires the rider to look ahead to avoid obstacles or how people should communicate well with their teams and in advance of any obstacles. Such advice works in both the work room and on the bike ride.
