Tip of the Month by Ron Jasniowski
While many organizations regularly hold
leadership retreats, many don't. Organizations that don't have
at least bi-annual leadership retreats miss out on
Retreats are a great opportunity to:
Communicate the latest vision and energize
leaders to make the vision become reality
Communicate the organization's progress
from outside experts to address areas of need
Identify obstacles and develop problem
solving skills to overcome obstacles
Air problems and concerns
Brain storm about how to reach
Build cohesiveness, trust and endurance
Have fun together
Build interdependence and a team spirit
Presidents who don't hold leadership
retreats, often would like to have them, but they just don't
have the time to organize them. They subconsciously wish someone
would take initiative and help organize it.
Consider approaching the CEO or president of your
organization about holding a leadership retreat. This could be
your opportunity to make a meaningful difference in your
workplace. You might want to take one or more of your coworkers
In order to convince him/her to hold a
leadership retreat, you must demonstrate this is in their best
interest and that this will not be a burden on them. And propose a
reasonable budget for the event. The more extravagant, the less
likely it will take place. Retreats are easiest to hold at a local
hotel, resort or golf-course clubhouse.
Initiative is a character trait that
employers reportedly pay more for this trait than any
other trait. Now is a good time to begin the planning process. With
a little preparation you can ensure this is a meaningful and
positive experience for all concerned. The encouragement and
morale boost leaders gain through this experience, more than
compensates for the time invested to make this a meaningful event!
