Meetings, Retreats and Customized Workshops
Our meeting facilitation, retreats, and workshops are designed to engage and strengthen results.
Meeting Facilitation and Retreats
We have expertise in the following areas and would be happy to share ideas and work together to co-create a memorable, productive meeting to address your needs.
- Strategic Thinking and Planning
- Board Retreat Facilitation
- Post Merger Integration
- Family Business Strategies
- Team Building Workshops
- Woman’s Leadership Retreats
A professional facilitator can help to build trust and engagement that will enable all participants to do their best thinking and collaborate. Outcomes include the development of new ideas and the ownership that comes with being part of their creation. Follow-through and forward-action after the planning session are important goals, so accountability is built into the process.
Whether your goal is to get to know each other better, to build a team that works together better, to be more innovative, or to get down to work on a project plan or a budget, you will achieve much more if you get away for a day or more, change the environment and dedicate time for the process.
Activities in our meetings and retreats may include:
- Clarifying roles and responsibilities
- Determining decision making processes
- Clarifying team values
- Developing mission and vision
- Assessing system and process for improvements
- Improving communication with assessments (see workshop below)
- Resolving conflict
- Project planning
- Fun (and maybe even a few games)
- A wide variety of agenda items relevant to your needs
The approach we take in all of our workshops is to first establish a meaningful set of goals, and then hone strategies and skills using fun, interactive methods. All workshops are custom designed to meet specific needs and challenges, and to give you some examples, the following three themes have resonated across many diverse audiences.
It probably comes as no surprise to you that lack of effective communication is cited as one of the biggest issues in business today. With email, voice mail, and an endless assortment of ways to stay in touch, why is communication such a problem? Everyone understands just how important good communication is, yet few get it right.
This fun half day workshop has been designed to offer new perspectives and practical ways to improve your communication and be heard. Everyone has a unique behavioral style. Style differences will often shut down communication between people. Once you learn how to understand the differences and adapt you will open the door to better relationships by getting your message across in a way that will be heard. This workshop takes advantage of a unique, personalized assessment and offers a safe environment to start practicing new ways of communicating. Everything you learn in this workshop will have an immediate impact on your ability to be more effective with your team, your business partners, and the relationships in your life.
The ability to interact effectively is critical to achieving individual, team and organizational success.
What are our clients are saying. . . .
"There was so much to think about. This was REALLY well put together- excellent use of my time. Best workshop I've been to in recent memory"
Emily Carey, Rutgers University
"Thank you for a wonderful workshop. You did an extraordinary job presenting complex material in a limited amount of time. I have participated in a number of professional seminars and workshops during my career and yours was one of the finest. You obviously have a mastery of your topic and its supporting theories, which you were able to relate completely to your audience. While the subject of self-evaluation is inherently stressful, you crafted a process of revelation that was understandable and fun."
Michael J. Russell

Many people in business work many more hours than they prefer and still feel they are not getting enough done. If you are running hard, working too many hours and wishing you had more time, this workshop will help you stand back and take stock.
Almost everyone knows that you should prioritize your activities, and complete urgent/critical/important tasks each day. Almost everyone knows that planning your day makes more sense than letting others do your planning for you. Everyone knows, but very few do. Why? This hands-on, practical process will reveal the keys to being more effective at reaching the important goals in your business and your life.
Participate in this interactive workshop series and look at what's working in your time management and what's not. We will offer powerful insights, strategies and tactics to get control of your time and productivity.
"Though provoking; you did an excellent job of taking abstract concepts and making them clear."
Women Presidents' Organization member
"I was skeptical at first, but was amazed and pleasantly surprised at how helpful and insightful the program was. Thank you! Much food for thought!"
Customer Loyalty can mean the difference between success and failure in business. Unfortunately in many companies, the customer has become a low priority with everything else going on. When people are not treated according to their expectations, they take their business elsewhere. What's more, they usually relate their bad experiences to as many as ten other people. The question is not whether to improve your company's service standard, but how.
Excellence in Customer Service pays off on the bottom line. A few of the key topics addressed in this vital workshop include:
- What Does the Customer Really Want?
- What Does Customer Service Really Mean?
- Understanding Human Behavior
- Art of Satisfying Customers
- Cultivating Customer Loyalty
- Effective Communication
- The Art of Listening
- Handling Complaints and Mastering Difficult Situations
- Becoming an Excellent Service Provider
