Companies to Watch Retreat

The Companies to Watch retreat is currently offered to those companies who have won the coveted award. This is an excellent way to see how the foundation can add tremendous value to your growing company.

Leadership of Me

The initial program in our retreat series, Leadership of Me focuses on the evolving role of entrepreneurial leaders and the unique challenges that they encounter in second stage. Participants go through a rigorous exploration of their personal strengths, business values and perspective on control. You’ll leave with a better understanding of your role as a second-stage leader, what you bring to the organization and how to leverage your strengths to enhance profitability.

Leadership of My Organization

The second program in our retreat series, Leadership of My Organization focuses on strategic thinking. You’ll become more aware of industry forces and how they may be affecting your organization. In addition, you’ll be introduced to a framework that combines your personal values and organization’s purpose with a big, hairy, audacious goal. In a nutshell, you’ll start thinking like a futurist.

Advanced Facilitator Training

Facilitating is a demanding undertaking, whether it’s an ongoing peer-to-peer roundtable, a one-time, high-stakes meeting or a large group interaction. During the process you may encounter anxiety, frustration, anger and bruised egos from group members. In this advanced course, experienced facilitators will gain a deeper understanding of the psychological and social forces that affect their ability to be effective. You’ll become more confident at managing both small and large group dialogue — and be able to address a wider range of group needs.
