Why Go On A Retreat?

Most of us find we do our best thinking away from the office, where we can focus on creating and delivering new ideas. Give yourself a fresh perspective on your big problems.

Reasons for going on our business retreat

  1. Give yourself permission to have time out and stop rushing
  2. Change your environment, helps change your mindset. When you are away from the hustle and bustle of email, phone calls piles of paper and interruptions it frees your mind to look at things in a different way.
  3. Experience something new and different – this gives you a different prospective and opens up your willingness to try and experience – give things a go!
  4. Be part of something – with a group of like-minded people who talk the same language as you can be quite powerful.
  5. Take a bit of quite time to listen (to your own ideas) – we have little voices that we don’t have time to listen or pay any attention to – listen and take time to see if the words of wisdom have any merit.
  6. Take a break from the everyday – grind and look at your business from the outside.
  7. Relax and let the creative juices flow.
  8. Have a bit of fun and
  9. 9. Get energised.
  10. 10. Create a plan of attack.

You can do this just by hiring a conference room for an afternoon or even hiring a beach house for a couple of days and holding a proper strategy session. You might have a couple of team building strategy sessions away from the office. You might have few hours where directors and advisers come together on big picture issues. We can facilitate some of these sessions for you!

But what if you are just a small business owner or operator? Or you have a specific issue or problem you want to spend time on?

If there are specific problems you want to tackle, perhaps hold workshops with smaller groups too. We are sure coming on one of our retreats will help you make decisions create ideas and be innovative for new and productive energy.
