It’s no surprise that millennial executives are doing life differently. Leading differently. Communicating differently. Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, is no exception. It’s been reported that when he is faced with making a key hiring decision, he often takes the candidate for a walk in nature. Several people have reported a walk and talk on a wooded trail outside the Palo Alto headquarters.
Maybe Zuckerberg has discovered the secret researchers have reported: we think more clearly and are more creative when exposed to nature. If a short walk in the woods helps with critical decisions, imagine what a week at camp can do.
