Phenomenal Women in Leadership Retreat 2022

Welcome to the gateway to unleashing the limitless leader within. This transformative experience will take place over a period of five days and six nights in Ghana. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain physical and geographical distance from everyday life. It’s time to invest in yourself. We will take care of everything from when you step into your retreat.

This is What You Came For - The Results

After having a beautifully transformational time in Ghana, you will:

  • Create a solid vision of the ideal version of yourself.
  • Up-level your leadership presence and build trust with others.
  • Discover a new found zest for leading yourself and others.
  • Develop a dynamic communication style that will empower you to show up authentically.
  • Become a fully conscious leader in your professional and personal life.
  • Create a mindset shift in how you manage your inner critic.

RELAX, RECHARGE, REDISCOVER!

It is time to power down so that you can POWER UP and embrace the PHENOMENAL LEADER within!

The Location for Transformation

The retreat will be held at a private mansion, lovingly referred to in the local area as the Blue House. The Blue House is set against the backdrop of a beautiful fishing village. The views from the roof terrace with lush green countryside and sea views, creates the perfect space for reflection and fun times. We will have this venue completely to ourselves, so we can enjoy the freedoms that come with the privacy to be creative, to share, to be vulnerable, to be in community.

  • The Blue House is 2 hours away from the capital, Accra.
  • It offers seven bedrooms.
  • Three of the rooms offer sea views.
  • All socialising areas also enjoy sea views.
  • All rooms come complete with private bathrooms and full air conditioning.
  • We are within walking distance of a stunning local beach, in a quaint little fishing village called ‘Hope’, need I say more?

You may be asking yourself, 'Why me, why you, why Ghana, why now?' All very good questions.

The simple answer is, why not, and if not now, when?

As a woman, a leader, and everything that you describe yourself to be, it is time to power down, so you can power up and embrace the phenomenal leader within. It is my intention that you walk away from this magical time with more than just information. You will take away true transformation that sparks from your heart and the person that you truly are; there's no room for ‘the imposter’ here, she's no longer welcome. You are worth it! I look forward to meeting you soon.

Energetically yours,

Perhaps:

  • You are a leader who wants stronger leadership presence through building trust and a deeper connection with your team.
  • You wish to up-level your communication and conflict management at work (and possibly at home).
  • You wish to show up as your most authentic self, without apology.
  • You wish to quieten down that inner critic and banish the imposter syndrome that may be holding you back.
  •  You just wish to pause and reset in a beautiful location and connect with a group of phenomenal women in leadership.
