Corporate Retreats :: Law Firm Retreats

Dr. Maynard Brusman facilitates corporate, law firm, and other professional service firm retreats, at some of the most beautiful resorts in the world. We help you deal with difficult business and people issues and create breakthrough results.

A retreat can be a powerful way to confront difficult issues and initiate sustainable change. Collaborating with your retreat planning team, we will customize a retreat that will re-energize participants and re-focus your business enterprise.

Away from the workplace in a beautiful and supportive setting, new and creative insights are gained, relationships improved, and a special purpose discovered.

2. Form a planning team
3. Define key tasks and responsibilities
4. Communicate plans to participants

“Dr. Brusman has planned and led two highly successful Retreats for our Firm focusing on work/life balance and vision, mission, values, and strategy.”

“I have worked with Dr. Brusman personally in his Executive Coaching program. Additionally, I have retained him for a similar program with other members of my senior staff. I have also worked with him on several crucial leadership issues and problems as well as retained him as a facilitator in helping the management team devise and implement strategic and key mission objectives at a management retreat that was held during a critical time in the development of the company. His experience and professional focus was clearly evident and was an integral part in the success of the program. His follow-up as well as genuine concern can be credited with keeping the team on task and focused even after the retreat. Dr. Brusman’s approach and style is clearly unique and not like typical programs that quickly dissipate to the status quo within days of the conclusion of the program. “
