Retreat Facilitation

A retreat takes a team, organization, or group of key decision-makers out of their normal work routines and puts them into an interactive environment that allows them to open up communication and dig deeper into existing challenges with a view to problem solving. With proper planning and facilitation, retreats can be amazingly productive, encouraging creative thinking, strengthening relationships, and energizing the team.


Executive Retreats bring together key decision-makers, involve complex dynamics and discussions, and often have far-reaching effects on the whole organization.


Team Building Retreats minimize conflict and maximize synergy by improving communication, resolving existing challenges, clarifying goals and roles, and refocusing the team’s efforts and energies.


Process Improvement Retreats review existing processes, examine whether the systems and people within an organization are being used effectively, and explore different ways of doing business.


Change Management Retreats deal with change that a team or organization is facing — whether the change was anticipated and desired or has been imposed. These retreats help to ensure that the important issues are addressed so the change is successful.


Strategic Planning Retreats focus on future success by developing or reassessing an organization’s mission, vision, and values; assessing the climate within which an organization competes or operates; and identifying strengths and weaknesses of an organization.


CELESTIAL SELF DEVELOPMENT CENTRE:  partners with you to design unique retreats and off-site meetings which are focused, productive and cost-effective. Emphasizing team building and improved communications, we develop and facilitate all of our events using the following three-phase process:




Preparation and Assessment

  • Meeting with leaders of the organization to understand your corporate culture, your current situation, establish goals and objectives and clear outcomes for your retreat.
  • Design achievable objectives and a comprehensive agenda to address those needs and desired outcomes.
  • Get preliminary feedback from you and others on your team to ensure that participants won’t be spending costly time defining issues; this means that your retreat will focus on producing results, building teamwork and making commitments and plans to continue taking action after the event.



  • Execution and Facilitation
  • Facilitate retreat so participants can concentrate on achieving goals and solving problems.
  • Foster an interactive environment in which participants openly discuss issues and work on collaborative solutions; this means that everyone can move ahead together while simultaneously increasing trust, communication and cooperation among the group.
  • Emphasize, capture and document key ideas and priorities so we can create a useful action plan and post-event report.



  • Report and Follow-Up
  • Document all proceedings and decisions reached at your retreat in a comprehensive, organized and edited report.
  • E-mail your retreat report and results to a designated contact for further action.
  • Schedule and lead a post-event debrief with key personnel to review event results, develop follow-up communications and prioritize action plans; this ensures that the important ideas, solutions and commitments generated during your retreat are actioned/executed after staff has return to office.
