Custom Team Retreats
Exponential Growth Weekend
What is It?
Two full days dedicated to harnessing the full energy, creativity, and ideas of your team members. Your lead facilitator will serve as a catalyst to help uncover everyone’s thoughts, ideas, and perspectives. This event is a completely ‘how could we’ environment with all energy and focus is pointed towards scaling your organization into exponential growth. Your facilitator will use the 5 Core Disciplines as a framework to guide your team’s ideas, making sure no area of the organization if left undiscussed. Participating team members will be able to share best practices and build stronger relationships with other members of the team. These events will commonly take place at one of our western Canada office locations – our mountain view office in Canmore, AB or scenic Predator Ridge, BC being the most popular venues; although we can deliver these at a client arranged location as well. Usual participant numbers for this event is about 6 – 8 although we’ve had as many as 16 and as few as 2 at these growth weekends.
Who is It For?
A team that’s overdue in simply allowing themselves to think bigger. Many organizations we work with will make sure to proactively schedule these at least annually. The 1985 book by Ed de Bono referenced what he termed the ‘6 thinking hats’ – all the different perspectives we should think from when planning or confronted with a challenge to solve, etc. Most executive teams will get plenty of time with the more ‘cautious’ hats on during their regular meetings and planning sessions, but our Exponential Growth Weekend is for teams who want some protected time to primarily think from under the ‘green hat’ – the hat of ideas, energy, growth and the daring to ask what’s possible?
Custom Team Retreat + Activity Workshops
What is It?
A training workshop retreat built around a central theme. Sometimes it’s a theme or skillset of permanent importance to the participants, sometimes it’s a theme around a major shift or change coming in the near future for the organization and it’s leadership, sometimes it’s a theme crafted out of preliminary discussions upon an organization first reaching out and sharing some of their priorities and challenges, and sometimes the theme is simple and unencumbered – escape and have some fun as a team. These retreats have a hyper-contextual activity component built in to add some fun, some change of scenery, but mostly to accentuate the desired theme, lesson, mindset, or breakthrough intended. Over the past several years we’ve had executive teams, sales teams, board members, and you name it, in boxing studios; in zero-light mountain caves, paddle boarding, mountain biking, gin tasting, cleaning the banks of a river, inventing, cooking, and marketing their own pizza creations, and countless more activities over countless locations. Usual participant numbers for these activity retreats is about 6 – 12 although we’ve had as many as 20 and as few as 1 at these custom workshops. The length and duration of these is usually determined after our planning discussions to ensure we allow enough time to meet all your intended outcomes – they require at least 6 hours and typically are 1 or 1.5 days in duration.
Who is It For?
A team that is staring down an unknown future, a challenge, or a major change. A team that wants to continually challenge themselves and continue to sharpen, and sharpen, and sharpen an already finely edged blade. A team that wants to escape and have some fun. We will not agree to facilitate any retreat or event we feel does not have a chance to leave a lasting residual impact on the individuals and their performance long term, therefore these custom activity retreats are perfect for teams who are committed to investments that deliver returns beyond the experience itself.
SELF Breakthrough Workshops and Retreats
What is It?
A chance to focus on self development in a team setting. These workshop retreats are not for business strategy or planning, but rather the development of the team members themselves. Theses events are almost always co-facilitated with our lead Mindset Performance Coach and are powerful in helping high performing executives and leaders with increasing mindfulness, handling stress, building resilience, and empowering overall mindset. Participating team members will be able to share best practices and build stronger relationships with other members of the team. Typical number of attendees is 6 – 20, but we have gone smaller and larger. These events will commonly take place at one of our western Canada office locations – our mountain view office in Canmore, AB or scenic Predator Ridge, BC being the most popular venues; although we can deliver these at a client arranged location as well. SELF Breakthrough Workshop Retreats are usually 1 full day in duration.
Who is It For?
Teams who want to gather and individually exercise their ‘top two inches’ – their thoughts, beliefs, and mindset.
