I have been a mid level manager of this team for over 5 years. I have now been promoted to VP last month. (Thanks to the awesome guidance from MT!!) I am looking for some direction on designing my two day staff retreat. I have secured a really great facilitator who knows our department and business well.

I am looking for direction on how to introduce the DISC model to each staff person, (we will take the test prior to the retreat). At the retreat I would like to role out a version of the emails that MTs uses to make our communication more effective. In addition, I would like to have some exercises to build our relationships within the team. I am a high D and hate these, so this is where the facilitator will be really good.

Second day we will be reviewing our annual goals, budgets, roles and strategic plan for 3 years.

What do you suggest?
