For anyone arriving into the area on Friday, we would love to meet you. We will set a time and location for us to meet-up and start to get to know each other. Drs. Patricia Grabarek and Katina Sawyer would love to get to know you before the ‘real work’ starts!

Day 1

9:00 am – 6:00 pm

The retreat will start by introducing the goals of the retreat, setting ground rules and expectations, explaining the structure of the retreat, and building a safe environment. During the first part of the retreat, Drs. Patricia Grabarek and Katina Sawyer will cover the science and research behind the activities and goal setting that will be completed throughout our time together. The rest of the retreat will center around a research-based practice to develop Psychological Capital. Topics covered will include:

  • Setting positive and ideal goals
  • Addressing fears and personal setbacks
  • Determining external obstacles and challenges
  • Learning how to overcome setbacks

The first day will end with a happy hour as a networking opportunity among our like-minded participants.

Day 2

9:00 am – 12:00 pm

The final half day of the retreat will solidify everything learned on Day 1 and culminate in an important action planning activity. You will walk away with concrete next steps to implement all that you’ve learned to help you achieve your career goals, be a more productive employee, and lead your teams to a healthier and more effective work life. Day 2 will include:

  • Confirming goals
