Leadership Retreats

Retreats present an excellent opportunity to test ideas in a “safe” political environment where imagination is encouraged. Our objective facilitation service offering ensures that everyone participates, the group maintains a strategic orientation, and the outcome is pragmatic.

Characteristics of Progressive’s Leadership Retreats include:

  • Retreat participants include a cross-section of constituents that will offer different perspectives on issues

  • Retreats have sufficient structure to follow an agenda yet permit discussion and debate about sensitive issues

  • Topics address strategy, operations, financial, and organizational issues

  • The agenda balances education and planning components

  • The goals are to have the group reach a common understanding about the organization’s current situation, followed by outlining scenarios and formulating tangible next steps
