Executive retreats are an important investment of your time and resources. A good retreat gives a team clarity around the organization's objectives and energizes them to take collective action. A bad gathering does the opposite - it leaves very bright and motivated executives correctly rolling their eyes about another wasted opportunity.
The first thing we do is make sure the objectives of your retreat are crystal clear. Then we help you design an offsite to meet those objectives while galvanizing your team to take action. We draw upon our broad experience to help make your retreat meaningful and insightful for the most demanding executives.
For example, your company's annual strategic planning offsite may be the toughest task you will undertake. It has the potential to be one of the most important meetings of the year. There are certain tasks that should never be relegated to a third party and some where a third party is can add great value. This exploration of the future is universally understood to achieve a better outcome when the process is facilitated by an outsider. However, the decisions must be made by your team, who are responsible for the outcomes and work in the industry day to day.
We are frequently called upon to facilitate executive retreats for clients of all types. Our unique ability to foster personal and group insights has led to our being a mainstay for our retainer client retreats. While teambuilding is seldom the major objective, it invariably becomes one of the greatest benefits.
