Build A Strong Resilient Foundation and revitilize 

Are you ready to roll up your sleeves?

We live in turbulent times, and many struggle to pause. It can be your family, your friends, or your organization that stresses you out.

It is likely that whatever function you are at, people look to you for leadership! For signs of strength and resilience!

...Whether it is inflation, struggling tech companies, startup building, tough health or family situations, silent quitting, or political unrest. We all go through seasons.

Sometimes, you need to slow down to notice...

To serve, you have to build yourself up! And what got you here will not get you to the new stage.

You have to trust yourself, and trust, then others can trust you. Often, this requires to slow down and hear how others do it...at times, it can be very frustrating because we strive alone.

But you should not give up and surrender. That is the opposite of resilience! You have a mission in front of you, and it is exciting; get ready to explore more about yourself...We can help you to discover what those objectives might be...

Progress Not Perfection?

 Sometimes, you might feel frustrated and often defeated. You try to work long hours and put a lot of effort into the work. You focus on perfection because you think that is your safety net until you get laid off and passed for promotion.

Sometimes, we forget that perfection is the enemy of progress. So, if you read this, it is time to get inspired and take a new journey! What do you think?

Resilience is this magical superpower that helps you recognize when you need to admit, that what has worked for you will not anymore.

So, let us discover how you could reignite your progress again, shall we?

And the cool thing is, you do not have to do that alone...But with other cool professionals and like-minded strivers.

During the 3 days, you will have time to calm down, recharge, and find a new wind. The retreat's location is near Barcelona, Spain, in the wine region, full of tranquility.


Your Guides and Ninjas

You will feel pampered, taken care of, and gently nudged by the leading trainers, Deb and Mateo, and the guest trainers, Dean and Kate. You will rejuvenate with nourishing food, community, music, and discovery.

In the three days of activities and workshops, it is time to disconnect, and you will be able to reconnect with your inner leader.

We all have to learn to slow down to be able to go fast again. Deb and Mateo will share their mantra, ' The way of the turtle.'

With tools, resources, presentations, group work, and workshops, you can let go once again.
