Phyliss’ professionalism and expertise resulted in interactive and meaningful retreat programming that promoted socialization, team building, and leadership and encouraged program ownership, personal responsibility, integrity, and commitment

While planning and facilitating our 3-day retreat for the TAAP Program at UC Berkeley, Phyliss Francis was extremely organized and focused which made the process manageable and effective. Since the retreat, I have not only received positive feedback from students through evaluations and informal conversations, but I’ve seen the impact it has had on the cohesiveness of the program and peer support network.

A corporate or staff Retreat will breathe new life into your corporation, university, organization, or group.

Our retreats offer a neutral environment unrestricted by routines, traditional approaches or expected authority roles. We co-create a space that generates reflection and discussion, which is conducive to creative thinking and strategic decision-making.

As your Retreat Facilitator, we manage the structure of the retreat, not your content. We know how to handle details and bring issues and events to closure, allowing for an effective and powerful experience.

A retreat is a brilliant strategy for your organization to:

  • Promote team building, collaboration and bonding
  • Re-energize your mission, internal marketing, or long-term goals
  • Solve fundamental issues among leaders, managers, and employees
  • Close the gap between your strategy and employee performance
