Sniffing Public IP (Hackers tricks for protection)

So, I basically want to know how a hacker could sniff a public IP address at my office if they are outside my network. I have tried a few tools, to no avail and even though I sniffed perfectly within my network, I cannot figure out how I can see the unencrypted traffic while I am outside. Would someone literally need to be on my network to see this unencrypted traffic that is being sent out into the public internet?

My ultimate goal is to get something tangible to show the bosses, as far as what we are sending unencrypted and why security is important.
