In today's professional workplace, leaders often seek a forum for bringing their departments and teams together to build a overall commitment to goals, a spirit of excitement about future prospects, and dedication to the organization's mission, vision, and values.

At Communication Excellence Institute, we have long and varied experience in bringing teams together, making the most of their strengths in communication and creativity. In our experience, meetings like this most often focus on:

  • Building a positive team culture in the organization.
  • Formulating or revising the organization's mission, vision, and values statements.
  • Evaluating progress toward established goals, or setting directions for new ones.
  • Creating an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect.
  • Establishing norms for decision-making, conflict-handling, and information- sharing.
  • Identifying ways of enhancing productivity.
  • Moving the organization through a culture change.

CEI's facilitators are nationally recognized specialists in communication and management. They meet with you at your preferred location for one to two days of meeting facilitation. (We strongly recommend that the retreat be held off-site, away from phones and distractions.) In that time, you may want the participants to experience testing instruments such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator™ and the Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument™ to better gauge their communication and interaction styles. CEI also has numerous group exercises that make meetings enjoyable as well as informative and insightful.

Of course, most of the time is devoted to the business of the group—the creative thinking and exploration of the present and future directions they are considering.

Because each meeting is totally customized in terms of length and content, please call us to discuss the costs. In all our facilitated meetings, CEI provides all session workbooks, audiovisual materials, and team-building facilitation by recognized experts.
