Remote work has changed the ways we work and relate. More than ever, organizations need to prioritize time together to unlock potential and create impact.
Greaterthan supports brave organisations in creating meaningful, memorable offsites and retreats, with the right balance of working, connecting, and recharging.
Greaterthan has decades of experience in creating retreats from A to Z in many contexts and cultures. We are here to support you through the entire retreat creation process: from defining your goals, to finding the perfect venue, to co-designing the program and facilitating on site.
We offer fixed fee design and retreat facilitation, or we can advise you in the process of creating your own experience.
It depends on the interplay of a few key ingredients:
The right balance between work, rest, connection and play
Participatory formats that engage everyone tap into the wisdom of the group
The perfect location
Delicious, nourishing food
Support by experienced facilitators who help you navigate through challenges
Walking away with a sense of accomplishment
Looking at all these elements in holistically is at the heart of our approach.
To make the most out of your offsites, on-sites or retreats, we work closely with your team to craft an experience that meets your organizational goals and expectations.
Enliven the shared mission and purpose
Strategize and align towards collective action
Build coherence around ways of working
Grow shared leadership and culture
Make important decisions together
Practice foundational skills of self organizing
Strengthen trust and working relations
Surface and address tensions
“Manel and Lena from Greaterthan handled group dynamics with experience and grace, adapting constantly as the event evolved and delivering an excellent, productive, rejuvenating three days. We needed their help; they delivered above and beyond what we ever expected.”
After 2 years of working together, we turned to Greaterthan to facilitate our first in-person company retreat in nearly 4 years. Nearly half of our team had never met in-person and the rest were longing to reconnect. Leveraging her knowledge and experience with our team, Lyssa created a space where everyone felt welcome to participate. The level of conversation and engagement exceeded our wildest expectations.
”We host three full-company retreats each year, which are vital for our alignment and to discuss certain topics that are better discussed in person. Greaterthan has helped us understand and realize the potential of these gatherings, and they have our complete trust in delivering these essential company events.”
For three years in a row, we have decided to work with David to hold our annual staff gathering with more than 200 participants online. Together we plan the design of the gathering and take his input to cover the contents in a methodical, alternating way. During the event, it is important for us to have technical support in the background so that we can focus on the content of the gathering. For the design and participative approach of our virtual members' meeting, we recommend David as a partner throughout the entire process.
Have a team retreat coming up soon and are looking to hire an external facilitator? Not sure yet whether you would like external support? Or are you currently exploring whether having regular retreats makes sense for your organization?
