Leadership Retreat and Career

Zandmoter Huis ter Heijde

Join the second try out Leadership Retreat, English spoken, for free! This one day compilation takes place at Strandpaviljoen De Staat, The Hague, 4th of October 2019, 9.00 – 17.00.


To whom and why?


This retreat is designed for senior academic professionals. Two days of conscious dedication by the sea, working on your professional & personal (career) development, sources of inspiration and personal leadership skills.

Why? Daily hassles and routines sometimes:

  • consume all your energy, true authentic desires loose strength
  • decrease your work pleasure and the quality of your relations
  • prevent you from complex decision making and a pro-active approach

It is time to slow down; to share intimate thoughts in a safe and stimulating environment, to let the sea-breath refresh your mind, to prepare a fresh start and to embrace the speed of life again.

Program and approach


The retreat pays specific attention to:

  • Exploring desires, the WHY of work, what does “really matter”
  • Reflecting on your qualities, obstacles and development ambitions
  • Dealing with sources of energy and flexibility in mind and mood
  • Using next step qualities: Courage, Bird eye view, Curiosity, Intuition
  • Balanced decisions making by strategic thinking and dealing with paradoxes
  • Practical and human issues, preventing falling back in old patterns

We work with:

  • Games with personal leadership cards
  • Group discussions, reflection in pairs, individual consults
  • Awareness & mindfulness exercises, beach walks
  • Life story telling; exchange of stories
  • Practical exercises and role plays
