Executive Retreats: Key leaders collaborating to lead more effectively.
An Executive Retreat requires focused facilitation and an in-depth understanding of the issues facing the leadership team and the organization. The level of responsibility held by this group requires solid, honest communication and relationships with a high-level of trust. Executive retreats are strategic and must have a clear meeting purpose. We work closely with you to define the goals of the executive retreat, prioritize the issues and discuss not only the business context but also the human context, to identify areas where the discussion may veer off track.
A few hints to help you get started.
Planning corporate retreats can be a demanding and challenging process, Our Retreat Planning Worksheet has been developed to simplify organizing your thoughts and help you examine the possibilities.

Tips for Planning a Company Retreat
- Invite the right people; don’t use a retreat as a reward if it excludes key team members.
- Develop clear objectives for the retreat and commit to them in a clearly focused agenda.
- Be a good time manager during your retreat; keep discussion on topic and request small groups take certain topics offline if they don’t impact the entire team.
- Assign homework before the retreat to make the most of your time together.
- Keep an Action List on hand to track commitments, responsible parties and deadlines.
- Build a Post-Retreat Follow-Up into your process; future improvements depend on this.
- Use a neutral retreat facilitator to allow team members to freely focus on the content rather than getting distracted by the logistics.
