I am quite obsessed with the game of Chess. It has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember and it is something that I really enjoy doing. Chess is not only a fun and challenging game, but it also provides many life lessons.
I think all business leaders should learn how to play chess because it can teach us a lot about business.
Here are the 6 biggest business lessons I have learned from playing chess:
1. How to work with AI
2. How to look at the big picture
4. How to look at several different situations and figure out what outcomes each may bring
5. How to identify patterns
6. How to be comfortable with the unknown
All of these lessons are important to learn and will help you be a better leader. So, if you have some extra time on your hands, try Chess. I highly recommend it.
