Podcast: Critical Thinking, Intuition and Innovation

As part of GBTA’s professional development opportunities, we offer the Global Leadership Professional® (GLP) Program in partnership with the University of Virginia Darden School of Business. It is the only masters-level course for travel professionals, and the strategic curriculum uses an interdisciplinary approach that addresses both the opportunities and challenges of conducting business in today’s evolving environment.

GBTA’s Professional Development team recently hosted one of the GLP courses called Critical Thinking, Intuition and Innovation at our headquarters just outside of Washington, D.C. As part of the two-day program participants learned methods to map out risks, rewards and varying outcomes to be able to logically assess the consequences of their choices and allow them to make more confident, profitable decisions, while creating better products, processes and services for their customers.

The course was taught by Robert Carraway, Associate Professor of Business Administration at UVA’s The Darden School. For this week’s episode of The Business of Travel, Professor Carraway joins us to talk about executive education, critical thinking and innovation.
