To maximize the impact of your retreat, be sure to plan for togetherness… 

  • Be intentional in the style of housing you select.  Hotel style accommodations, although comfortable, may allow your attendees to isolate themselves.  
  • Be strategic with relationships. Watch that everyone does not sit with or only hang out with those they already know well.  Plan activities that require mixing.
  • Be sure your programming involves interaction.  Avoid having everyone sit and listen to one person teach the whole time.  Adjust your seating and your teaching style to encourage interaction.
