Leaders in organizations spend so much time dealing with day-to-day issues that they often find they can’t see the forest for the trees.
That’s were I come in.
I sit down with decision makers and help them create an opportunity for members of their organization to reflect, plan and problem solve.
We do this on site or at the location of your choice.
If you feel you need to “get off the merry-go-round” and refocus, a corporate retreat might be just what you need.
I generally employ the following process:
These are normally held once a year and allow participants an opportunity to focus on their organization’s goals for the coming year.
These retreats are often preceded by a SWOT analysis in which we look at the organization’s Internal Strengths and Weaknesses and External Opportunities and Threats.
At the retreat we focus on two specific issues and begin the process of creating an action plan.
The process continues after the retreat as I work with management and employees to insure the goals developed during the retreat are met.
The topics and length can be tailored to fit the needs of your organization
The experience gives your employees an opportunity to “get off the merry-go-round” and focus on the needs of the entire organization for a period of time ranging from a morning to a few days.
Prior to the Retreat
We develop a theme and goals for the day.
Using a Retreat Check List we look at that all logistical items from finding a location to choosing the topics to be presented during the retreat.
I will often survey members of the organization to uncover areas in need of improvement.
During the Retreat
I serve a variety of roles ranging from facilitator to leading break-out sessions.
Following the Retreat
I tally the results of the retreat evaluation and make recommendations for continuing to build on and improve the topics and needs uncovered during the retreat.
As needed, I can also serve an ongoing role to assure the implementation of goals created during the retreat.
