Struggling to Attract & Retain Employees?

Organizations around the world are struggling to figure out what the secret sauce is to attracting and retaining top talent. The problem is that the secret lies in their ability to figure out how to maximize employee wellbeing. This is a highly complex topic that requires real leadership commitment combined with a well-thought-out strategy. Most execs don’t have the time to figure it out. This retreat gives leaders the opportunity to be immersed in workplace wellbeing strategies for 3 days… and leave the retreat with a wellbeing plan designed specifically for your organization in hand.


In this uniquely crafted 3-day retreat, senior-level leaders will learn the ins and outs of how to develop a comprehensive, long-term wellbeing strategy that can be successfully embedded into their culture while feeling and experiencing what wellbeing means in one of the most beautiful settings in the world.

What makes this retreat unique? This event is unique in that it combines a powerful curriculum with an immersive experience. We want leaders to get the much-needed “how to” information surrounding workplace wellbeing, while also living and feeling what it means to be well. By spending time in a beautiful setting, eating healthy, meditating, practicing yoga, and disconnecting from technology, leaders can truly embrace holistic wellbeing.
