tgin Corporate Retreat: Planning for 2025
My company just had an amazing company retreat in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.I didn’t know what I was signing up for when I decided to plan our first annual retreat, but I wanted something that would help our growing team bond, get to know each other better as well as give us clarity for priorities in 2020. I’m pleased to report that we developed a plan for 2020 and solidified both our vision and mission statement.
At CEO school, they often talk about how culture and values are super important to building a sustainable organization. Despite being in business for close to 10 years, I had failed to write a mission or vision statement. Our retreat was the first opportunity for me to really reflect on these ideas with my team and to formulate a mission that speaks to all of us, my vision for the company over the next five years, and the core values for new hires, as well as existing team members.
Our new mission statement is
Redefining beauty by cultivating a community that empowers women to be the best version of themselves.
I’m also proud to reveal that our new values as a company are as follows:
– Results Oriented
– Spirit of Excellence
Having a facilitator (pictured next to me in the striped blouse) was one of the best investments that I made to ensure that this meeting generated tremendous value. I did a significant amount of research and they said that having a facilitator gives a CEO and her team members opportunity to fully engage in the retreat process versus being responsible for managing it. I highly recommend it!
