Atlanta Leadership Retreats

A customized in-depth process for taking your leadership team to a new level.

Utilize A Leadership Retreat To Boost Your Organization

A successful leadership retreat should be fun and functional; providing leaders with both an opportunity to dig into important issues without distraction, and space to recharge and reconnect. Our fully facilitated retreats provide a powerful framework for growth, but are flexible enough to incorporate your content and objectives. The longer the retreat, the deeper we can go with your group.
New Organizations Merged Organizations Struggling Organizations Next-Level Organizations
Whenever an organization is formed it is essential to put a solid foundation in place. Without it, the curve to get from forming to storming to norming to performing can take longer and be full of costly mistakes.
When two organizations come together there is an inevitable clash of ideas, values, systems, goals, and culture. This conflict – whether subtle or outspoken – can cause damage to reputations, the loss of good people, and delays in meeting expectations.
Sometimes organizations get stuck in a bad place where everything seems harder than it should. It is essential that the leaders come together to address conflicts, mistrust, missed targets, high turnover, low morale are other signs that things are out of alignment.
Sometimes an organization decides that “good enough is no longer good enough.” But how do we get from good to great, or great to amazing? Plateauing can be dangerous – causing them to lose focus, or become stale and lose impact and good people.
But with a clear path forward, a new organization can work through the inevitable growing pains more quickly, performing better in a shorter amount of time.
But with a mediated process of bringing the two leadership teams together and facilitating open and constructive conversations, each team can let go of their singular identities and build a unified team.
But with the right process of clearing the air and resetting expectations, an organization can get back to healthy functioning, good communication, and producing results.
But with the right launch sequence, an organization can break through their current level and reach new heights of accomplishment, processes, and impact.
This allows the organization to reach their targets, meet expectations, and build a strong brand.
This mutual collaboration brings the merged team “on line” sooner, allowing the work to get done and the team to shine.
This gives the leadership team the tools they need to give the organization the energy to meet their goals, support stakeholders, and be seen as a success.
This allows them to achieve greater levels of productivity, recruit top talent, and drive the organization forward.

The Leadership Retreat Process

How we build your retreat

Every organization is different, but there are certain core ingredients every leadership team must have in place. We take the insights gained from the team leader interview and the results from the leadership team survey to craft a program designed to help your leaders bridge the gap between where they are and where they need to be. An essential part of this process is our “whole-brain” approach to teamwork.

We all have preferences for different ways of thinking, and the accompanying skills and viewpoints. But to be a solid leadership team we must bring together all these assets and align them. And while most of these ingredients appear self-evident, many organizations have not taken the time to clearly define these essential elements.

Analytical Brain Conceptual Brain

Goals – clear, compelling, and relevant.
Metrics – regularly measure performance.
KPIs – Know which stats are vital.
Problem solving – a team process for solutions.

Vison – Know where we’re going.
Mission – Know why we’re going there.
Strategy – Have a road map for HOW we get there.
Creativity – Have a flexible approach.

Standards – clearly define how the work must be done.
Roles – Agreements on who is responsible for what.
Accountability – Systems for ensuring the work is done as agreed. Effective
Delegation – assigning and tracking responsibilities.

Values – What is most important to the leader?
Culture – What environment are we intentionally building?
Conflict resolution – how do we move past friction in a healthy way?
Support – Making sure everyone is getting what they need.

How long should our leadership retreat be?

Your coach-facilitator will work with you to create an agenda that supports your goals and ensures a successful retreat.
Half-Day Full-Day Two-Day
Great for teams that have very busy schedules and can’t be away for long. Best for teams with smaller issues to tackle, challenges with less complexity and lower emotion.
A full day is appropriate for teams that have a moderate amount of “heavy lifting” to do. Target 2-3 key areas and adequately work through the challenges and create team cohesion around new structure.
This is for teams that have a lot of ground to cover. This time frame allows for a deep dive into a wide range of topics and allows for processing of more personal challenges or aspirations. Big commitment allows for big changes.
