Communications Team Retreat

The time to come together as a communications team to help shape the future of work is now.

Two years into the pandemic, communications teams are universally feeling both overwhelmed and underwhelmed.

The pace of demands is relentless, technology and organizational change is constant and stakeholder expectations are sky high. At the same time, communicators are fragmented, disempowered and disillusioned in ways we’ve never seen before.

A Results Map® Retreat offers your team a fresh start – an opportunity to take stock of what’s working and what’s not, while reimagining how you can work together to deliver maximum value and impact. This is the ideal time to invest in energizing, empowering and enabling your communications team. It’s about shifting from just solving communications problems to solving business problems through communications.

Our Results Map® Communications Team Retreats are customized to your team’s specific priorities and challenges. Sessions can be delivered in-person, in hybrid or online formats (bilingual options available).

 

Retreat objectives:

  • Build team alignment and engagement
  • Explore opportunities to contribute maximum value and impact
  • Identify strategies for contributing value through disruption and change
