ESC consultants are skilled at facilitation for board and staff retreats. Our trained, objective facilitators help you set your own priorities and find your own solutions.
In preparation, a confidential self-assessment survey is generally used to help define points of strength and areas that may need improvement.
A board retreat is generally an intensive one-day meeting designed to help your board members understand board functions as well as their own roles and responsibilities. The board will review its mission and vision for the future to determine if a new or updated strategic plan is needed. The board may also focus on specific challenges facing the organization.
This is especially productive for boards in transition, newly organized boards or boards with several new members.
Retreats can also focus on staff issues related to roles, responsibilities and relationships.
