Taking time away from day to day operations in a retreat can help organizations re-focus and re-charge or add little value.
I work with organizations who want a great retreat. I guide advance planning to sharpen desired results and introduce opportunities for the most stimulating and creative activities. I also plan a design for the session that is clearly tied to the products and outcomes that are most needed.
Some of the powerful ways a special meeting, often called a retreat, can be used are:
- to assess progress,
- address issues,
- confront challenges
- forge new directions
- integrate new board and staff
- define or renew commitments and accountability structures
Working with a representative design team from the organization who can provide direction and perspectives needed for the best meeting.
