Retreats, Planning Meetings, and Workshops

Many organizations benefit from annual retreats or meetings to:

  • Envision their future
  • Set goals and priorities
  • Set short-term goals to build toward long-term goals
  • Focus on their stakeholders’ needs
  • Create a strategic plan using the S.W.O.T. (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) Analysis
  • Define individual responsibility and authority
  • Determine how to coordinate and collaborate with other organizations and businesses
  • Create a roadmap for one year, three years, and/or five years

Plans are customized to meet your organization’s goals, and designed and facilitated:

  • Creating practical applications to your current issues and goals
  • Eliciting ideas from all participants
  • Active, highly participative, and motivating
  • Including a written follow-up plan with concrete action steps involving all participants

Includes interviews with up to five people to learn your specific goals, and customize the design to help you meet those goals.
