Event description

Description

Are you overwhelmed as you continually rush around at 100mph?

Is your day filled with 'stuff' and you feel like you're not making a difference, despite all your hard work?

Do you feel like you're lacking in energy as you focus on everyone and everything else?


It doesn't mean you don't have what it takes to be a great leader. It means you're not putting yourself first.

You need some time for you. Time to get away from it all and leave behind the challenges and the distractions.


Join me at my one day leadership retreat where you'll discover why you can’t be a great leader, if you’re not a great you.

Reflect on the real you. A quiet space to think, challenge your assumptions, and gain new perspectives from other leaders. An opportunity to open your heart, connect with what’s really important to you and remember what makes you a great leader.

Recharge your mind and body. Slow down and take your foot off the pedal so you can be present, and focus on yourself. Give yourself permission to break the urgency cycle of constantly acting and reacting, and boost your positivity and energy.

Refocus on what’s important. Switch from doing ‘stuff’ to doing the ‘right stuff’ by investing your time and energy towards doing more of what’s important. Align your priorities, action plan your next steps, and regain your inner confidence.

The day is all about you! You’ll get an opportunity to check-in with yourself, and remind yourself what makes you a great leader. It’s designed to put yourself first. No phone calls, no email notifications, no meetings, and no members of staff asking questions …simply benefiting from JOMO (the joy of missing out)!

The theme for this retreat is emotions, which you'll explore in depth. I’ll guide you through the day with self-discovery activities and engaging conversations all based around being more aware and managing your emotions. It's challenging, but in a nice way!


If you’re ready to invest in yourself, and your approach to work, then this retreat is for you.

I look forward to welcoming you.

Andrea

PS: Sometimes, the retreats can bring up issues for you as a leader, which you want to continue to work through and gain a fresh perspective. At an additional cost, I offer a coaching call up to 4 weeks after the retreat, to explore and action your next steps.

Who will be facilitating the retreat?

The retreat facilitator is Andrea Goodridge, an accredited leadership coach and facilitator who supports leaders to focus on leading themselves first.

Over the last 20 years, I’ve supported many leaders across the NHS, local government, housing, further education, private and not for profit sectors. I hold a Level 7 Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring and a Level 7 qualification in Action Learning Facilitation. And, I’m also an accredited Strengthscope®, MBTI®, Mental Toughness and Emotional Intelligence practitioner.

In October 2015, I set up Ad Florem, when I made the decision to only do activities that energised me or where I could add value. Basically, if I’m not going to feel it, and be energised by it, I won’t perform at my best! I encourage you to do the same for yourself.

If I’m sure of anything from my 20 years’ experience, it’s this:

Whatever you feel is stopping you from feeling happy and positive or standing in the way of you achieving results – whether it’s your colleagues, your working environment or the culture of your organisation – it isn’t that!

My challenge is always, let's start with you.
