Retreats & Offsites

Re-energizing Your Organizations and Teams

A well-executed Offsite or Retreat is recognized and reported as the greatest single contributor to employee loyalty and educational development. We can consult and coordinate all the efforts of an offsite or simply supply education and facilitation.

All programs are customized based on individual objectives, providing a variety of learning options that address each unique organization. Holding an offsite/retreat is always a worthwhile opportunity to foster trust, build relationships, and re-focus your team. More importantly, when designed well, it can create a launch pad for Team and group development for the year to come for enduring results.

10 Great Reasons to Hold a Retreat:

  1. Team Building - boost morale and build loyalty by engaging in unique ways
  2. Creatively solve problems
  3. Use alternative methods of interaction vs. traditional meetings
  4. Enable uninterrupted time to think and act proactively
  5. Create a stronger community that improves workplace quality
  6. New environment = Fresh perspectives
  7. Deal with sources of buried conflict, which prevents output
  8. Roll out new initiatives and create buy in
  9. Encourage people to take risks that are necessary to move an organization forward
  10. Integrate new team members by aligning them with organizational values and goals

Raves About Retreats & Offsites

Alison facilitated a really interesting and impactful meeting. I appreciate all of the effort and insight she put into making it productive. I really liked her style. There were times she pushed for more information and input and others where she set the stage and let the conversation happen. She is really personable and engaging. From what I saw, I think she would be very well versed in facilitating a wide range of meetings. I was impressed with the range of scope of the insights our team engaged in throughout our offsite with Alison's guidance.

Alison ran a dynamic two-day retreat for our team. We had goals that seemed like they would be hard to accomplish in just two days. However, at the end of the retreat, it felt like we had achieved all of the goals. I attribute this success to Alison’s obvious experience with running many such off-sites and retreats, her high positive energy, and her inspiring openness and authenticity.

I have participated in Forum Retreats with YPO Certified resources for over 12 years, Alison is the best forum resource I have ever worked with. She came more prepared than anyone to date and she had real content for us as opposed to meaningless and fragmented exercises. We will use her for our next corporate offsite!

You designed our retreat customized to the needs we expressed. The work we did together was right on point and did not deviate from what we had hoped to accomplish. You are experienced, well read and extremely well prepared. There were difficult personalities and you were incredibly skilled in handling those tough situations. I think you connected easily with each individual and the fact you “fit into the group” enables the members to feel comfortable expressing themselves. I have been in YPO for many years and I have never had a more “connected” facilitator. It wasn’t an easy assignment given the time restrictions we placed on you, but you exceeded expectations. I hope to work with you again.

Alison is exceptionally effective because she understands the lives of senior leaders and professionals, invests in careful preparation, brings high energy to every session, communicates clearly and candidly, and has the agility to pivot with the group in the moment. She has helped our group break through difficult issues, become closer than many of us thought possible, and change our lives for the better.
