The health and balance of a company is directly linked to the one of its managers. Healthy, well-rounded leaders create fun and efficient workplaces.

At today's speed, leaders often lack the time to take care of themselves. I am proud to be a pioneer in the Executive Retreat space offering program that combines integrative health experience, happiness, wellness and business!

Rich in my experience as the founder and manager of the Om Prana Holistic Center, I now combine my experiences as an entrepreneur, consultant and MBA with that of developing and deploying meditation, yoga, happiness and health retreats. I can also incorporate coaching in heart coherence, healthy cooking, juicing and more. All my retreats are tailor-made for your team specific needs to address your most important business and wellbeing objective.

DURATION 2 to 7 days

Based on your needs and budget

When the healing takes care of business

I have multiple tools for both business & wellness. You can provide me with your objectives, the number of participants, the desired duration, and your budget and I will design something for a unique experience that will allow your leaders to relax, recharge, reset, reboot and to deploy the best of themselves in solving the business subjects at hand.

The dictionary definition of a lighthouse is: A tall structure topped by a powerful light used as a beacon or signal to aid nautical navigation. Since its creation, it has been seen as a pillar and even a refuge. Over the years, the lighthouse has been used to represent our ability to reach our inner light and our full potential, to illuminate the dark areas of our experience. It also expresses the light of those who guide us. The lighthouse is the symbol of protection, hope, calm after the storm, and material and psychological security. It is also the symbol of our anchoring points such as are our values, our families, our friendships, and our professional relationships. In the workplace, the lighthouse can also represent the light we need to shed on the solutions needed to help it shine to its full potential, while remaining firmly rooted in its values, mission, and vision.

I can also travel internationally to facilitate your retreat at either a location of your choice or one that I can find for you. I can also work closely with a travel agency to target the best package for your group.

Healthy Meal

Simple or gastronomic, planned with care

I am taking care of all the details including the right foods. Meals of high quality are served, preferably organic and alcohol-free to promote presence, energy, rest and clarity of mind. The retreat is meant to be a complete resourcing and rejuvenating experience. It's a new way of working where you take care of your people as they take care of business.

The benefits

It can be difficult on a day-to-day basis, and especially when working from home, to develop team spirit, show appreciation and strengthen the desired corporate culture. A change of scenery breaks the routine and offers a unique opportunity to focus on specific topics and see things differently while investing in the health and well-being of your employees. The benefits generally looked for are:

  • Team spirit uplifted
  • Communications enhanced
  • Conflict resolution
  • Mobilization towards one or more goals
  • Increased creativity
  • Improve ego management
  • Appreciation demonstrated in a tangible way
  • Staff inspired to take care of themselves to offer the best of themselves
  • Improved feeling of belonging to the company
  • Increased adaptability in a changing world
  • Overcoming the 5 dysfunctions of a team
  • Restoration of pleasant working atmosphere
  • Real Leaders transformation
  • Performance BOOST
  • RESET!

More can be accomplished in two well-structured days than in hours of meeting in the office where everyone continues to operate according to the same principles and paradigms that led to the current results.

Referral to be provided

Having collaborated and worked with Nancy on several occasions in the past, I had no doubt that our experience would be a winning one. It was beyond my expectations and those of my team.

During a recent retreat and team building activity with my team of managers, we were looking for an experience that would allow us both to refocus in order to work more efficiently, but also an opportunity to take care of us, the human individual being behind each manager, which unfortunately is not done often enough in companies.

It is a very unusual activity, which requires daring and which goes beyond the `` normal '' framework of training / current management framework, but I tell you, it is the best investment you can make.

Nancy has definitely made us a renewed team, more united than ever, which has significantly increased the overall effectiveness of the team. The mix between the more conventional approach to team functioning (Lancioni, the 5 dysfunctions of a team) taught, and the heart coherence teaching applied and mastered by Nancy resulted in a winning cocktail. The change is radical, and the results are tangible!

Thank you Nancy, it has been one of my best professional experiences so far, and I want to say that as a business leader, this is something we should all take the time to do, more often! Dare!
