Are you looking to engage the whole team while building buy-in, using participatory decisionmaking?

Our team needed to give serious thought to our future direction and how we were going to prepare for a future that held greater uncertainty at that time than ever before. Robin facilitated a retreat that helped us all get into a future mindset, identify new options and explore the opportunities and risks associated with them, and build stronger relationships among team members. She was able to engage typically reticent team members which allowed for a richer conversation that included a variety of perspectives. We came away with clear action steps to support our strategy, and had fun along the way.
A Partner Can Deepen Your Conversation
Retreats, workshops, conferences, and meetings are key to connecting with colleagues, partners, and clients. Whether in-person, virtual, or hybrid, hopes are often high that these gatherings will be productive.
Designing specifically for the change that you want to see is essential for gatherings to have impact and create sustainable change. That means planning activities, time for conversation, and follow-up right from the start to ensure the gathering delivers and participants enjoy their time.
An external facilitator can level the playing field, ensure that everyone participates, bring an unbiased eye toward design, and supply fresh ideas to help achieve your goals.
