      To whom and why?

      This retreat is designed for senior academic professionals. Two days of conscious dedication to your professional & personal ambitions, sources of inspiration and personal leadership skills.

      Why? Daily hassles and routines often:

      • consume all your energy, real desires seem to fade away
      • decrease our work pleasure and the quality of our relations
      • prevent us from a pro-active approach in developing ourselves

      It is time to slow down; to share intimate feelings in a safe and stimulating environment and refresh your mind by attention and the sea. Clarify your desires, work on your personal leadership skills and prepare yourself for the next step within or outside the current organisation.

Program and approach

The retreat pays specific attention to:

  • Exploring desires, the WHY of work, what does “really matter”
  • Reflecting on qualities, obstacles and development ambitions
  • Dealing with sources of energy and flexibility in mind and mood
  • Working on personal leadership issues such as courage, bird eye view, curiosity, intuition
  • Personal decisions and consequences for development & career
  • Solving practical problems and preventing falling back in old patterns

We work with:

  • A card game with qualities and pitfalls
  • Group discussions, reflection in pairs, individual consults
  • Awareness & mindfulness exercises, beach walks
  • Life story telling; exchange of stories
  • Practical exercises and role plays
