Kick-Off Retreat

A staff retreat to establish team bonds and successfully launch a new team or project with shared goals in mind. 

Course Description

One of the biggest challenges that new and established groups face as they work together are misunderstandings and misinterpretations or values, needs, and expectations. How one person defines “respect” may be radically different from how others do depending on their diverse perspectives which can lead to unfulfilled expectations and conflict. This is why community agreements and value exploration circles are such an important tool for your classroom or team.If “change” is part of your daily conversations with your team, this experience is for you. Whether you’re starting a new quarter, a new project or new team, the “Kick-Off Retreat” provides you with a positive and memorable retreat. In a supportive and safe environment, your team will have the opportunity to hear and express what they need to be successful, feel supported, and collaborate. You’ll work together to explore values and create team/ meeting agreements using a truly inclusive process that is reflective of the diversity on your teams.
