Corporate Retreats

Executive retreats, corporate retreats, team building retreats - these terms mean something different to everyone!

So, how do we define a 'retreat'?
A retreat is any time you intentionally set aside a period of time, away from work with the agreement that you will not be disturbed by outside intrusions. This time allows you the ability to get your group back on track, re-energized and focused.

There are many different forms of retreats and all retreats are not created equal. Although there are many 'canned' retreat ideas, make sure that you select your location and environment very carefully based upon the people attending and the outcomes you want.

Location, location, location
Let's face it, almost any kind of hotel conference setting is not going to help anyone relax and is not conducive to creating a comfortable space.

Does this mean you should keep everyone happy and go to a neutral spot? No. In fact, helping the participants step out of their comfort zone is part of what is necessary to create a meaningful retreat.

There are simply too many distractions if you do not step away from your normal operating environment - cell phones, beepers, secretaries, employees, all competing for your attention.

Should you hire an professional facilitator to run it?
We are biased here because we offer this service. But there is no doubt the tools and resources a professional facilitator brings will be beneficial to your group. However, make sure it is the right faciltiator with the right skillset for your outcomes.
