April 5 – 9, 2019 – Residential Program in the Netherlands 


When we ask today’s outstanding leaders what is most important in running a succesful organisation, most of them say ‘it’s the people of course!’. If the people feel good about themselves, their eyes will shine, they will collaborate well with others, they will come to work with pleasure and enthusiasm. They will love their jobs and go the extra mile! They will bring out the best of all the people around them.
However, we see that when things go wrong, many professionals lose their patience and very often also their humanity when dealing with others… Deadlines and challenges kill the quality of their interactions, they get stressed, for some the light goes out and they get a burn out… And then results go down…. Teams fall apart…  People leave.

The art of calming down and balancing our inner state is crucial in the way we deal with our own challenges and the challenges at our workplace. Leaders and professionals don’t only need to invest in  leadership competencies but also in practicing how to manage and regulate their inner state, be present and have good quality interactions. They need to make good use of their body awareness and their intuïtion, so they can spread and keep a calm and resourceful atmoshpere for others.

We are offering this space and opportunity in our intensive 4 days workshop that will help you to bring a new level of focus and energy in your life, both mentally and physically.

We combine the beautiful conversation techniques of Solution Focus with the practices of mindfulness, movement and breathing. This is a powerful combination that will leave your body with very rich memories of how to better manage your inner state, also during the moments where life is challenging and work situations are tough. Moreover, during this Solution Focused* retreat, you will make room for what is important in your life now: perhaps you want to be more clear in saying no, you want to make better decisions, you want to work on your coaching skills . Through the guided conversations, coaching and meditations that we offer, you will have better access to your resources and make steps forward in your specific personal development needs.

Petra & Liselotte are both senior coaches and facilitators. They both created their own businesses and have a long experience of working in organizations and facilitating workshops. They are very active in the International Solution Focused Community and are members of the board of SFIO (Solution Focus in Organisations). Now they are ready to take the approach just one step further by including the body and addressing the needs of finding peace and calm in the midst of the busy modern life. The retreats in Romania were very much appreciated and called by some as “life-changing” experiences. Now they bring this experience to the Netherlands and they are looking forward to welcome you!
