Corporate Renewal Retreat
The Corporate Renewal Retreat offers nature-based learning opportunities to for-profit and non-profit organizations. The retreat has its roots in organization development, systems theory and ecopsychology. Its goal is to create an opportunity for organizations to learn about themselves without many of the barriers that emerge in more traditional settings; thereby, creating a unique opportunity for improved communications, organizational learning and creative problem solving.
This retreat is not a challenge course. However, it will require both corporate and self-reflection.
Corporate Renewal will provide you with a new framework for understanding complex organizational issues, clarifying the problems within your organization that you know or sense exist, understanding the role of natural and cultural systems in your business, and developing a plan of action. It can also assist you in setting goals and developing priorities, solidifying a team, defining values, and improving communication strategies.
You will also . . .
Learn how to assess your organizationís ability to respond to change and readiness so you can evolve with the challenges you encounter.
Evaluate the strengths of your organization and how effectively your organization communicates.
Determine if there is common understanding of your organizationís vision and values, and how your organization responds to stress.
