My retreats and workshops are experiential and include: empowering discussion, cutting edge teachings, group and individual exercises and engaging team builders. I also can incorporate components like original music, inspiring videos, visualizations and meditation for maximum creativity and results.

The following programs can be structured as “2-3 hour” workshops or full day retreats.


Strategic Visioning for the Here and Now

Some strategic planning programs take months to achieve results. But there is a different path to accomplishing extraordinary breakthroughs that can happen in one day!

“Strategic Visioning for the Here and Now” is a transformative retreat/workshop for teams who want to think out of the box in a structured, yet creative way, and find powerful solutions together. Your team will first experience a discovery session (before the retreat) where you identify what is working well, where you are getting stuck, and what you would like to see happen differently.

Then, at the retreat/workshop itself, you will be immersed in a group coaching model (GROW) to identify your top goals and priorities, overcome obstacles, and determine real action steps and strategies that lead to success.

But there is more!

This is also an inspirational day, so you will experience individual and small group activities to expand your mindset, strengthen your relationships, and grow personally. It is a retreat filled with creative brainstorming and connection opportunities that help you succeed in the here and now!

Building an Engaged, Happy and Successful Workplace

This “morale-boosting” program can occur on a single day or a series of days. Your team will be guided to connect more deeply; find their common mission; and, show authentic appreciation for one another through value based conversations. You will learn tools for building an engaged, positive and happy work culture, which leads to greater productivity, innovation, teamwork and success!

Incorporating Gallup Poll research and Positive Psychology techniques, you will learn that when people are engaged, make meaningful connections, and feel authentically appreciated, they perform at a much higher level. Happiness is the real catalyst for success.

You will also explore how to utilize your individual and collective strengths, which are keystones for helping individuals and organizations thrive. Overall, this program helps you enhance performance, increase happiness and improve engagement within your team, business or organization.

Positive Psychology shows that the brain functions 31% better in a positive state than in negative, neutral or stressed, which leads to greater productivity, creativity, performance and profitability.

This is a new world and we’ve reached a new normal. People’s stress level is higher than ever. We all long to feel joyful and stress-free on a regular basis. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to experience this level of personal peace no matter what’s happening?
