Senior Team Off-Sites and Retreats
Need new ideas, more openness and trust, renewed energy? A custom GreenLeaf Retreat will uplift your team as they regroup, galvanize around shared goals, and rediscover passion for their work.
Retreat comes from the Latin verb “to pull back.” When was the last time your team pulled back from day-to-day pressure and routines for a fresh perspective?
Retreats are great for cultivating team cohesion and alignment. They help you unplug and create space for listening to yourself and others – especially in natural settings that inspire refreshing un-googleable insights and learning moments.
Leadership & Team Development
The real stars in any organization are authentic leaders who unleash the best in others as well as themselves. GreenLeaf learning experiences help leaders develop these stars and build a culture of connection.
Hands-on learning is at the heart of GreenLeaf transformational experiences. You get involved and energized for lasting change and maximum impact.
Themes vary according to your unique needs and challenges. Workshops can explore all aspects of leadership, team and interpersonal effectiveness. Topics might include behaviors of exemplary leaders, understanding and leveraging individual differences, optimizing diverse teams, problem solving, values, and innovation. All delivered in an inclusive, unpretentious and conversational way. As Einstein said, “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.”
Insights from instruments like the HBDI Thinking Styles and 360° feedback processes such as the LPI 360 might be woven in.
HBDI | The HBDI Thinking Style survey decodes the way your team thinks, improves how they work together, and amplifies what they accomplish. I’m a Master HBDI (Herrmann Brain Dominance) Facilitator and would love to bring the magic of Whole Brain Thinking to your team.
360 Feedback | Research tells us the majority of people leave their jobs because of their relationship with their boss. Thoughtful, confidential 360° feedback and coaching on blind spots boosts leadership effectiveness while cultivating employee well-being and engagement.
It takes time to hone new skills and put them into practice. Individual coaching is a highly effective follow-up to leadership workshops and executive retreats, increasing the odds of actually using newly learned skills. All the development in the world means nothing unless it results in different actions.
A collaborative coaching partnership with me can help you and your leaders become your very best. Your leadership can be a powerful force for good. “What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” ~ Jane Goodall
Work in person or virtually to discover where you want your leadership journey to take you, and create a plan for developing skills to reach your destination. Ongoing follow-up supports your efforts, serves as a sounding board, keeps your feet to the fire and builds momentum.
Is work still fun and energizing? If not, perhaps a GreenLeaf coaching relationship can help you reconnect with your personal sense of purpose and rediscover your passions. Let’s make your eyes sparkle again.
Step out of the stress of daily life and rejuvenate in the peace and beauty of nature. GreenLeaf Nature Retreats are the place for deep revitalization and inspiration. Reconnect to what really matters, realign with who you really are, and reflect on what’s next for your personal journey.
I’m delighted to offer Nature Retreats for individuals, teams and for women. It’s possible to weave nature elements into other custom GreenLeaf Team Sessions and Customized One-on-One Retreats.
