One of ECCA’s core competencies is facilitating strategic planning retreats for the leadership teams of organizations. The value of such retreats are generally enhanced by sufficient pre-work and skilled facilitation which assumes responsibility for the group process, leaving the leadership free to fully engage in the strategic conversations which can lead to breakthrough thinking.
ECCA professionals have a wide range of experience facilitating planning and team building meetings and retreats. These range from on-site and off-site meetings for leadership teams from The Smithsonian Institution to university departments to non-profit associations to political offices and start-up companies. Our process includes data gathering form a wide range of participants to ensure that the retreat design is addressing the group’s true needs. We conclude these day-long and multi-day meetings by creating action plans for implementation of the ideas generated and processes for tracking progress and results.
