Executive Retreats Center
The windowless ballroom, the stale air, the accordioned wall snugged tight, the sterno-lit platters of buffet food heavy on the carbs and calories, all under the clinical glare of a fluorescent sky. What better place to do your best work? There is no mystery why we walk away from such meetings feeling bloated but unnourished, full but unsatisfied, head packed and heart shrunk, and profoundly disconnected from our true selves. To wrestle with the most fundamental challenges your business faces and the thorniest issues of trust and alignment, a different venue is often required.
Higher order work calls for us to come together in higher order space, space that mirrors our own richness and complexity, space that delights our senses, opening up rather than shuttering our spirits. We have found that the conscious choice of the right venue directly allows us to bring greater consciousness and higher level thinking to bear on decisions confronting us. Significant tangible benefits result. Too long have we revered our cognitive engines to the impoverishment of our bodies, our optimum rhythm, our souls, and our spirits. And the truth is, our work suffers for it, the output coming out of the dungeons of corporate meeting space is usually as lifeless as the décor.
Our executive retreat center, Deer Hollow, is one such place.
