- What are the goals of the retreat? Decide what you want your employees or team to accomplish and what you want them to feel when they leave. Retreats can benefit people individually and as a team. You want to give them the best time possible while still accomplishing a goal. Do you want your family to gain something specific out of the weekend? Maybe some unity?
- When creating your schedule, choose retreat activities that everyone will enjoy. Try and choose activities that are fun and make your family or employees work as a team and have fun. The best retreats are the ones that have both structured activities as well as free time. Free time will give your employees an opportunity to explore and have some time to themselves to relax.
