Executive Business Travel: Top 3 Tips For Executives Who Love To Travel

Exotic places. Enjoyable people. Lucrative events. If you are an Executive Leader who thrives on jet-setting around the world to meet new people and market your business to potential clients both in the United States and abroad, then the life of the high-powered Executive no doubt suits you well. While this article is geared toward Executive Leaders who match this description, the tips provided are actually tailored to help your staff back at headquarters cope with your frequent business trips and keep the day-to-day management of your company running smoothly.

  • Tip 1: Be Reachable. If you have hired a competent staff that is accustomed to minimal management, they likely know how to handle most situations and put out most office ‘fires.’ However, if a situation arises that requires your immediate attention and command-level decision-making authority, even the best and most well-trained staff will become concerned if they cannot reach you. Whether you received their messages and intend to return their calls or not, the fact remains that your staff will believe you uninformed—and continue to attempt to contact you—unless you notify them otherwise. To avoid this problem, establish clear means of communication, whether you provide your second-in-command with your work cell, personal cell, personal email, or the phone number of your hotel, and consider setting up a check-in schedule where your staff can have your brief but full attention when necessary to address pressing concerns.
  • Tip 2: Spend Time in the Office. Whether or not your staff is accustomed to an Executive Leader who is rarely in the office, it is an undeniable morale boost for your employees to see the boss from time to time and put a face to the name. If business travel takes you away from the office more often than not, you may wish to consider scheduling time in-office to both reconnect with your staff and reinforce your leadership presence.
  • Tip 3: Be Selective in Your Choice of Staff and Management. Especially in small companies, while it is always a good rule of thumb to carefully choose your staff and leadership, a smart Executive Leader will keep an eye out for individuals who are independent and capable employees who do not get easily flustered and who do not require immediate feedback on their work. If the employee has experience working from home or reporting to a boss remotely, even better. Keep in mind that your staff and management function as your support team while you are out of the office on business travel and that you must hire people you can trust to oversee and manage the daily activities of your firm while you are in meetings or in the air.

Above all, remember that high-powered, jet-setting Executive Leaders function best when they know that they and their team are equipped to tackle any problem with established mutual trust, responsibility, and reliability.
