Frequently Asked Questions

To ensure I arrive well-prepared and on time, I plan to travel to your retreat location the day before the event starts. This not only minimizes travel uncertainties but also allows me to join your team for a pre-retreat dinner at no additional cost, providing an excellent opportunity for us to start connecting in a relaxed setting.

I keep things simple and transparent by passing on the direct costs of travel, which include airfare, airport parking, ground transportation, and lodging. The primary variable in these costs is typically airfare, depending on the location of your retreat.

You can expect a direct and effective approach from me. My goal is to create deeper connections within your team by embracing and navigating the tough conversations that are often avoided.

My method involves establishing a psychologically safe space where everyone can let go of past conflicts and perceived barriers. I use techniques like curiosity-driven inquiry, mirroring to reflect understanding, and validation to foster authenticity and transparency. This approach not only resolves underlying issues but also equips your team with relational skills that enhance both personal and professional interactions, ensuring everyone leaves the retreat with a stronger bond and actionable insights for ongoing improvement.
