The Need For a Retreat
Issue: April 27, 2021
A Retreat – 1. an act or process of withdrawing especially from what is difficult, dangerous, or disagreeable
2. a place of privacy or safety
3. a period of group withdrawal for prayer, meditation, study, or instruction under a director
Wildwood is quickly becoming known for its unique setting along the banks of Cordell Hull Lake for corporate and group retreats. We continue to witness the changes that happen among companies as well as within groups and families after they dedicate time and gather for a retreat with one another. The results are so powerful and long-lasting that we decided it was time to have one for ourselves.
Learning How We Communicate
Wildwood hired Dennis Martodam of DM Works Consulting to be the facilitator and lead the core management team down pathways of discovery. For two full days, we were all invited to stay as Wildwood guests, and by having all of our meals catered by one of our catering partners our chef and kitchen manager could truly be in the moment with us too.
Through exercises and using the Myers-Briggs Personality Assessment tools, Dennis helped teach how the 11 of us come into conversations and confrontations using different personality traits. This was such a huge eye-opener for us to understand how we communicate differently and from where we gather energy and strength.
