Management retreats represent a significant investment of time and energy. Many organizations refrain from holding them because they are regarded as time consuming, and perhaps even a bit frivolous. Conducted properly, they can be your best overall investment for making decisions to help move your business into a more successful future.
Regardless of the size of your company, the bottom line is that bringing key people together for a retreat is a smart move. It can be an excellent opportunity for strategic planning and action-focused decision making to increase your sales, establish higher levels of customer loyalty, control overhead, improve overall performance, and drive business growth.
Effectively planned and executed, a retreat is also an excellent platform for reinforcing leadership skills, brainstorming ideas, solving problems, stimulating teamwork, nurturing a sense of camaraderie, and clarifying and reaffirming your organization's competitive strategy.
Management retreats are valuable experiences and they are fast becoming one of the most effective management tools a company can use. Since people tend to embrace what they have helped to create, a carefully planned retreat will ensure that everyone in your organization will support management decisions.
