All supervisors and managers need uninterrupted time with their teams

to bring focus to the future and discuss what the team is trying to accomplish within the "Big Picture". Team retreats are an excellent way to bring employees together to take time to plan their mission, vision and goals for the organization and to focus on development of a clear, concise direction for the team.

Smith Management can help you develop this agenda and bring clarity to your thoughts on the direction you may want to move.

Options include:

Development and/or revisiting the mission and vision of your department or division
Articulating future goals
Administering communication assessments
Providing individual and team feedback
Executing group exercises to develop better understanding about team dynamics
Custom programming
The day will be structured to be experiential with group dynamics and team input.

We will Work Hard and Play Hard!


How Did Coaching Support You?

"Most notably, I have considered and developed more direct communication skills with my staff and co-workers. Through this process I became aware that my communication was not direct at times and in situations involving conflict, this indirect communication often caused me personal stress. Also, I have developed better time management skills through producing strategies to better manage my already busy calendar."

- Phil Fleischmann

Division Manager, City of Greensboro

"Better understanding of self and enhanced self-awareness- especially how emotions/expectations impact decisions; MBTI and EQI were extremely informative and helped me to identify personal strengths and weaknesses. Recognizing that work frustrations are directly related to avoiding difficult conversations."

"Thank you for your time and efforts over the past 4 months. I really appreciate the way you worked with us and pushed us to stretch our thinking. Your willingness to go above and beyond made a difference in shaping a successful outcome."

Human Resources Director, Town of Garner.

"When I first started I questioned if I was in the right field of work or did I need to start all over again. After my sessions with Dale, I was given the confidence and a clear understanding of how to accomplish and gain the skills I need to grow in my field, not only as an employee but as a person."
