Leadership Development Retreat for Educators

A Virtual Mini Retreat for Leadership Educators

We had a wonderful gathering of about 30 leadership development professionals for a mini-retreat. We may do another one in the coming month. Here’s the intro, opening reflections, and some storytelling from Darin at our first retreat.

Leadership Educator Virtual Mini-Retreat: Reflecting On The Year and Reconnecting to Our Purpose

Join us for a collaborative leadership development mini-retreat for educators led by Darin Eich, author of Root Down and Branch Out: Best Practices for Leadership Development Programs and Innovation Step-by-Step. This will be a human-centered virtual event with the feel of a retreat, not a passive webinar. I think that’s what we all might need at the end of the year.

You’ll get the chance to hear stories, reflect, connect with others, and get re-engaged to your purpose at the end of a unique year.

This will be a 1.5 hour session where you can expect to connect in pairs and small groups as well as hear stories in the larger group.

Included in this mini-retreat:

  • Practical strategies to apply the Grounded Theory of High-Quality Leadership Programs high-impact actions in virtual programs or shorter workshops
  • Learn-by-Reflecting as we work in zoom breakout rooms and use powerful tools like collaborative whiteboards
  • Innovative experimentation of promising new activities in the virtual mini-retreat concept
  • Connecting with other awesome professionals in the leadership education space
  • Access to new ideas, tools and resources during this extraordinary 2020
  • And most importantly, an opportunity to reflect and reconnect with your purpose.

I’ve gained a lot from the leadership education community over the years. 🙏 I’d like to circle back to provide something helpful so there is no fee for this event for professionals from educational institutions and non-profits. -Darin
