ARTICLE: Corporate Retreat…To Retreat or Not To Retreat
That is the Question!
November 14, 2006
Christine Corelli

Effectively planned and executed, a corporate retreat is 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.

Corporate retreats represent a significant investment of time and energy. Many companies refrain from holding them because they are regarded as time consuming, and, perhaps even a bit frivolous. However, conducted properly, corporate retreats can be the best overall investment companies can make to make decisions to help move their companies into a more successful future.
