The dictionary defines the word “retreat” as an act or process of withdrawing, especially from something hazardous, formidable, or unpleasant.

You know what can be hazardous? Working too hard. You know what we find formidable? Not taking enough time for yourself to relax and reflect on what’s really important. You know what can get pretty darned unpleasant sometimes? You. When you’re running on empty after too many long days burning yourself out trying to keep it all together.

At inStride, our customized Retreats are designed to help you find that ever-elusive work/life balance. They’re an opportunity to let go of the wheel for a short while, sit back and give your psyche a breather. Reconnect with old friends on an excursion to the hills, hotels and hot tubs of Mont Tremblant. Let the sun soak away the stress during a week-long trip south with your over-scheduled family. Find your chi learning yoga, camp-fireside in the woods. We’ve got ideas, and we’re willing and ready to make yours a reality.

Whatever type of retreat you need to recharge, refresh and come back with renewed energy, we have the package options to do it.

Because we believe (we know!) that when you take care of yourself, taking care of everything else seems a whole lot easier.

Corporate Retreats

Great companies are built on strong foundations.

That’s business speak for “relationships”.

The good people who work for you, with each other, to keep your operation running, are the single most important part of your business. And, like all good, productive relationships, these ones need to be nurtured. Recognized. Rewarded.

Corporate retreats (good corporate retreats) are a special way to generate good will and unity among staff and management. They are the greatest way to build teamwork, improve communication, celebrate success or simply get out of the office onto neutral territory and get to know one another.

Whether it’s a villa on the coast, a zip line in the woods, or a motivational off-site pep talk, inStride will coordinate the tailor-made retreat solution your company needs to boost company morale, learn to work together, or simply take a well-deserved break from the everyday.

(Who knows? Maybe strapping on life jackets and careening white knuckled over rapids is just the key to doubling this year’s productivity! )

After a week, a day, or a few hours of well-designed work or play away from reality, you’ll return home re-energized, focused and ready to get back to business.

The team that plays together, stays together.
