Oya Leadership's Flagship Retreat At Calcot & Spa
Women’s Professional Leadership Retreat - English Countryside
Our 4-day Cotswolds retreat invites executives, entrepreneurs, senior managers, emerging leaders, and other change-building women to a rejuvenating, transformational experience in the English countryside. While many specific activities are customized to the needs and desires of participants, the retreat unfolds in two distinct and interdependent phases:
Phase 1: Relax, Reflect, Rejuvenate & Realign
Employing the tools of mindfulness and appreciative inquiry, the first two days emphasize wellness, self-reflection, and renewal as a holistic wellspring to help identify and align participants’ unique strengths, skills, and dreams.
Phase 2: Engage, Energize, Elevate & Execute
The final two days focus on the acquisition, refinement, and practice of vital leadership skills and the construction of a personalized playbook as a powerful guide for the planning, organization, and actualization of life and professional goals.
Throughout the retreat, we focus on wellness, connection to nature, and the support of a cohort of dynamic women to empower participants to expand and challenge themselves during the retreat and beyond as they embark on their designated dream path.
