Event description

Description

Need your next leadership planning meeting or retreat to really make a lasting difference? Or, need to design a transformational process? We collaborate with you to make that happen!

What if your next leadership retreat was a major turning point for your organization? What if you created a transformational process that reoriented people in a way that created an environment in which everyone exceeded desired outcomes? - Engaging your people in new momentum, behaviors and aligned practices to forward what really matters now?

Whether you are taking on a new role, team, or initiative, or, you want to initiate a reset, raising the level of energy, collaboration or sense of mission within your organization, a leadership retreat can be a pivotal investment in your success. How you engage with participants can make all the difference. How you speak about, plan, prepare for and conduct this particular meeting can be a transformative process.

“Retreat” may stimulate thoughts of exotic locales, lengthy slide presentations and seemingly frivolous exercises. Yet, a retreat can be a transformative tool for setting a new tone and direction, impacting how people communicate and think about their roles and how they work together. It can expand what’s possible for your organization and how it operates.

You are invited to a 4- hour seminar on Leading the Transformational Retreat:

June 25, 2018

12 noon to 4:30pm

In this program, you will learn and work with a powerful planning model, based on 6 key coaching questions. The questions, and the work in the seminar, guide you in utilizing a retreat event as a focal point for a process designed to create sustainable behavior change, a shift in mindset and actions. In essence, a Transformational Retreat process is a coaching intervention for a group or organization. The process involves leadership getting in touch with the urgency for change, clarifying outcome measures, and, based on that determining what information, preparation, agenda, content, communication, learning, and new practices and structures are needed to create and maintain the changes.

In this highly interactive session, you will:

  • Learn and work with a powerful model designed to create behavior change, based on 6 key questions that will change the way you think about retreat planning.
  • Hear how other leaders benefitted from this process to shift the way team members think about their roles, the team, and how it operates, and infuse new energy, enthusiasm, creativity, commitment into how they work and what’s possible together
  • Learn how the way you think about, plan, speak about, conduct the retreat, and the routines, practices, structures of support established and honored afterward can lead to unpredictable outcomes
  • Begin creating the shell of a future retreat
  • Identify structures to put in place, and structures within the organization that may be impediments to change
  • Understand your role as facilitator or leader of this process

This session is highly recommended for leaders:

  • In new roles
  • Of newly formed teams
  • Who wish to set a new direction
  • Of merged organizations
  • Who need people to operate at a higher magnitude of creativity, collaboration, efficiency, or customer focus
  • Who need to transform a situation, a culture

“Engaging Jackie and Anil to assist in the process to transform the way we think about our work together in the Office of Advancement was a key step in our continuous improvement journey. During our staff retreat, they helped us to identify organizational and cultural barriers to success. They helped also to build a new vocabulary that supports shared accountability for improvement.” Regina D. Biddings-Muro, Vice Chancellor, Advancement, Purdue University Northwest
