Leadership Retreat

One Day Leadership Retreat

Your one day retreat to spark Self-Leadership

Great leadership starts with self-leadership.

Now more than ever before leaders, when afforded even a small slice of time and space to focus on their physical, emotional and intellectual selves they are more confident, resilient and effective leaders.

According to the Headspace Work 2021 Mental Health Trends Report:

  • mental health is a rising threat to retention, engagement, and productivity;
  • work stress impacts personal lives and productivity; and
  • about half of all people say work stress bleeds over into their personal lives.

Self-Leadership Sustains Great Leadership


For leaders to have exceptional leadership the solid foundation is great self-leadership. The one day retreat is a day of self-leadership that is 100% designed to empower, spark self-leadership, and fill up the tank physically, emotionally and intellectually.

Taking in the views of the surrounding mountains, we are led by a certified yoga instructor who gently gets our mind and body ready for the day. [Alternative activities could include mindfulness session or guided meditation.]



Great leadership starts with great self-leadership. Identifying and amplifying your value, voice and visibility are what lead to your best you, and the what the world needs is for you to:

  • Stand up
  • Speak up
  • Stand out

We will cover nine steps to spark self-leadership, ensuring you shift from invisible to invincible. Leaders who have a strong sense of who they are and lead themselves effectively have more confidence, influence and courage. These are three essential skills leaders need to meet today’s constantly shifting and demanding challenges. Skills are teachable, like delegation and feedback, but building the confidence, influence and courage to step up as a leader others want to follow starts with building self-leadership.

[Optional extra: a massage therapist can join us throughout the workshop to provide head, neck and shoulder massages for each participant.]



We round out your retreat with a facilitated mindfulness walk in a nearby bushwalk with an expert outdoor education specialist.


The perfect day for your management team: women only, men only, co-ed options.

The perfect day for your high potentials.

The perfect day for your team.

I love few quotes from the retreat. Humble brag is perfectly ok. People opinion is none of your business. Stop, breathe, think.

COO, Arafmi Limited

I got motivated within myself to value myself. I have embarked on a personal health journey and prompted myself to look after me. Take the time to recognise if I’m not well or in a good place then that can effect people around me by how I am acting.

What aspect of the retreat were most useful or valuable?:


Great leaders know that they excel when they are strong self-leaders. The self-leadership workshop focuses on nine key steps to amplifying self-leadership.

What does bad leadership cost you, your team’s productivity, your business?


“This was truly a safe place where I could share my experiences and be comfortable where I am at in my leadership journey.”


Leaders work long hours, often putting their own health and physical wellbeing last on their never ending ToDo List. The retreat program is designed to align the body, mind and intellect.

A reset to help leaders slow down, move, and focus on themselves.


Numbers are capped to ensure there is enough time for discussions, activities and getting the most learning from the retreat.


“The size of the group was ideal to really break things down and get the most out of the day.”


The majority of the retreat will be outdoors, on acreage, even the workshop is on the patio overlooking the mountain ranges of SE Qld.


“To just be outside, in the outdoors, makes all the difference.”


It is highly recommended to run your retreat on a Friday/last work day or your week. A Friday retreat has proven to be conducive to participants being fully present during the retreat as well as helping set each participant up for ending out their week with greater mindfulness and less stress. 


No fast food! No junk food! Tasty, healthy good food to feed your body and brain. Dietary requirments are taken into account.



Everyone will recieve a journal / workbook to capture their learning and goals. Including an action plan for implementing the learning from the retreat.

All the resources for the activities will be provided. 


A gift box full of surprises to celebrate all things retreat and leadership: gifts for the mind, body and intellect!


Let’s catch up within the next two weeks to ensure the learning sticks. In this one hour online group community of practice session we will check in with participants and share the insights and wins since the retreat. This is the time to ask questions about any areas where participants might feel a bit stuck, where something hasn’t gone as anticipated.

The opportunity to take time out and work on becoming the best leader I can be was one of the best day programs I’ve done. I can now critically analyse myself positively and constructively , and also I now understand the importance of self-leadership. This day program gave me the tools and techniques so I can build my confidence as a female leader.
