Executive Team Retreats
The most successful companies I work with know that increased productivity, engagement and fulfillment start with helping their people understand themselves and how their unique strengths and level of wellness in key areas impacts their own performance and that of the broader organization.
Longview Vitality retreats bring teams together to grow and create stronger connections and trust through holistic experiences focused on Career, Physical, Mental & Emotional, and Spiritual Health.
Teams come away with a toolkit designed to help them leverage best practices in self development, keep their edge and maintain strong relationships both internally and externally.
Customized to You
Based on our initial conversations and organizational goals and objectives, we create a customized retreat experience to help the people who will take your company to the next level get aligned, connect to a shared purpose and supercharge their energy.
I partner with experts who are on the cutting edge of their respective fields with innovative approaches in areas like mental & physical health & fitness, nutrition, and personal development to help teams bring their best selves to work and life.
Building trust for
Developing relationships develops the baseline of trust. Trust in the workplace is when team members and coworkers can rely and depend on each other. Individuals who know each other personally, and invest more time in engaging and supporting each other, can work through conflict and solve problems in a more effective way.
In our customized Executive Leadership Retreat, our collective focus will be on introducing new tools to identify and leverage best practices, develop strong partnerships internally and externally and share the benefits throughout the organization.
So how do we align teams for high performance?
Get personal first.
Most companies and executives want to get straight to business priorities, but without a strong foundation for mutual respect and psychological safety on the team, those priorities become harder, and sometimes impossible, to accomplish. Being in a remote or hybrid environment can make connection more difficult so we need to be intentional about creating opportunities and strategies to make it happen and ensure everyone has a voice.
Current State Assessment
We start with confidential 1-on-1 conversations where each team member has the opportunity to share their thoughts on what’s working well and opportunities for improvement. From there, I provide the leader with a thematic summary that will inform the creation of retreat activities.
Common opportunities for improvement include:
Loss of connection and trust
Lack of established team norms and behavior
Undefined strategic plan, team goals and priorities
Individual performance and accountability
Ongoing communications guidance
Since communication is so important in building trust, I help the leader craft talking points and clear messaging throughout the process to ensure the team is engaged, aligned and committed to a successful outcome.
Focused Team Development
Based on outcomes from the initial conversations and the objectives of the leader and organization, we create customized leadership retreats to help align teams and take them to the next level.
We start building trust by spending time together and getting to know each other personally. The idea is to keep fostering the team and how we interact with each other so we can support each other, solve problems together, create better ideas together, and become an even stronger unstoppable force in the market together.
From there, we can customize team development activities to fit your needs. Areas of focus include:
Redefining mission and purpose
Team norms and behaviors for success
Hopes, expectations, asks, commitments
Team goals, priorities, next steps
Creating stakeholder plans
Bringing your best self to the team
