To retreat is the act of moving back or withdrawing. When a team goes on a retreat, they withdraw from their typical day-to-day business and begin to work on the business with a new view. Since 1997, we’ve been designing and conducting thousands of the most powerful leadership retreats leaders in San Diego have ever experienced. Our leadership team retreats are always customized to meet the specific needs and strategic approach for your team.
Inspired by a retreat I led with my own team when I was the Director of Strategic Planning at a Fortune 500 company, I founded the Simon Leadership Alliance and began doing what I love to do best, build strong, unbeatable teams made up of hungry, voracious, energetic leaders.

How it Works
First we assess your team (depending on it’s specific needs) and deliver an anonymous survey. This gives specific information on what the team wants, needs, and would like to accomplish during the retreat.
TEAM ASSESSMENTLEADERSHIP ASSESSMENT CULTURE ASSESSMENT
Based on your team’s specific needs, we work with you to custom design your agenda with a variety of elements ranging from Emotional Intelligence exercises to innovation labs.
The day of your retreat, we guide you through the agenda, and enroll everyone into the retreat goals.
Depending on the needs of the team, retreats can range from 1-4 days
During the facilitation, we will focus on deepening connection, and focus on what matters most as we help strengthen the bond with your team and begin to create action and accountability plans.
After your retreat, you receive a detailed action plan with conversations, promises, tasks, deadlines and commitments we made during your team retreat.

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:
I really wanted to sincerely thank you for what I consider to be a great event last week. I’ve done a lot of team retreats over the years with different consultants, and I can say this was the best one I’ve ever participated in.
You did a really good job of managing the group and managing the event. I got a lot out of it in terms to interpersonal stuff. I got a lot out of it in terms of work objectives to take home and get going on. I know it took a lot of energy and a lot of work on your par
Ray Pittman, President
Landmark Properties Group, Inc.
This is the best team retreat we have had in quite some time. I appreciate that you listened and developed the format in such a way that we incorporated learning, teamwork building and results. You were very effective in selecting best practice stories as well as our joint exercise. You re-directed our focus as needed and did a great job at pulling response from Kurt as needed.
It was a substantive commitment of time and energy for all of us, but was well worth it and will have lasting positive impact in the future.
Kim Buttemer, Chief Operating Officer
CDC Small Business Finance
Mitch did an outstanding job for us during our team retreat of effectively cutting to the core of some complicated and delicate issues to get everyone on the same page. After just a few days, Mitch was able to get us united, focused and energized. We could not have been more happy with the outcome.
