As you launch and grow your social change work do you often find yourself drowning in all your 'to dos' that are urgent, but rarely being able to work on what is important? When you are launching and operating your work around social change it is easy to get caught up in all the things you need to do.  But it is equally critical for social change leaders to work ‘on’ their business or organization and not only ‘in’ it.   On today’s episode we will give you the nuts and bolts about how you can do this deeper work on your own through the creation of a retreat.  We will give you ideas about how you can create space to think, create and innovate as it pertains to your social change work.  

In our conversation we discuss: 

  • Why social change leaders should schedule time to get away and work ‘on’ their business
  • Some suggestions for planning a retreat for you to focus on your social impact efforts or business including the who, what, when, where, why and how to do this for yourself
  • What elements are needed to make sure your social impact retreat is productive, fun and inspiring.
