Communications Team Retreat

The time to come together and help define the future of work is now.

About the retreat

Our retreat program is a tonic for weary communications teams. It’s a refreshing opportunity to step back from the pace of day-to-day to consider not only what the team does, but perhaps more importantly, how it works.

The retreat is a rich, engaging and energizing session that is tailor made for communications teams. It provides a great opportunity for communicators to come together and reimagine new ways of building community, solidarity of intent and creative integration.

The format includes an advance Gearing Up exercise, workshop tools and resources, as well as access to the Results Map® System. Sessions include a dynamic mix of plenary, breakout and individual reflection exercises. Your team will come away with fresh insights, renewed energy and a practical 30-60-90 day action plan. Topics include:

  • Defining the value proposition of the communications team
  • Unlearning habits, assumptions and behaviours that get in our way
  • Exploring techniques for agile communications including lightweight planning
  • Identifying opportunities to strengthen strategic and tactical integration
  • Elevating value and impact through consultative skills

Format: In person, online or hybrid

Outcomes
Build team connection, cohesion and shared sense of direction
Explore insights on new ways of working to maximize value and impact
Identify creative opportunities to unlearn and reconsider assumptions and processes that may be holding us back.

I am writing to let you know how useful your training was. My colleague and I are busy using your strategic framework in all the strategies we are pumping out and we are finding it fun, and a relief – we are able to logically put all the thoughts and actions into a framework that flows so well. Thank you!
