We are working harder, faster and longer than ever before. As we race to get ahead (and catch up), we may become exhausted, discouraged and even ill. Research shows that relentlessly “firing on all cylinders” without allowing time to renew can lead to serious negative consequences professionally, personally and physically. Taking a personal retreat provides a chance to catch up with oneself and regain the perspective and energy needed for a healthy, successful and fulfilling life. Leadership coaches Chris Wahl and Kate Ebner lead retreats that inspire, recharge and nourish executives facing big challenges. Chris and Kate will share what they’ve learned about why retreats are important, what makes a great retreat, and even how to design one that’s just right for you. Join us for an hour that will help you unplug, remove the noise, and give you just what you need.
