“The retreat was transformative. Wonderful energy, a fantastic circle of women coming together in leadership sisterhood. The circle began with opening up and sharing our vulnerabilities in leadership and ended with looking at the stories constructively with the aim of carrying over our lessons learned into our lives back home and businesses. Dr. K was able to inspire us to look past our past and help guide us into rediscovering our emotional intelligence and how to grow.”

Unlock your influence Retreats

Dive deep into leadership theory and its application. Relax. Bond deeply.

Unlike other large “retreats” that force you to navigate impersonal conference rooms, our intimate natural settings allow for reflection and rejuvenation. We use a specialized approach to women’s development in formal or informal leadership roles (work, home, school, volunteering—wherever you are now).

  • Know your motivators and learn how to recognize them in others
  • Learn the language of leadership
  • Balance your doing and thinking self
  • Approach leadership with an agile mindset
  • Set meaningful growth goals
  • Unlock your influence at work, home, and in your community
"This leadership retreat was amazing. Valuable information and conversations. The length of the retreat was ideal for breaking down and understanding the content covered.

I look forward to participating in more retreats in the future."

Who are they for?

Leadership isn't a title or a role. It’s about influencing the world around us in a positive way.

Unlock Your Influence retreats are designed for women who are interested in maximizing their leadership potential while also taking time out to reflect and recalibrate.

We’re women who want to achieve more and recognize when it may be time to hit the brakes.

People may arrive as strangers, but leave as friends.

What to Expect

Bring your stretchy pants, throw your hair in a messy bun, and get some work done.

Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted, offered a beverage, and have some time to relax and review the retreat material. Overnight guests select a comfortable bed.

We’ll jump in at our official start time with an exploration of self and identifying some key traits to identify in others.

Rest assured this is not your typical discussion or personality test. You’ll push deep through layers to set a foundation for the rest of our time together. We’ll then dig into the language of leaders, motivation, and understanding motivation in others.

Before and after your thoughtfully prepared meals, you’ll have time to reflect on your goals on our extensive patios surrounded by birds and nature. Our Salem location includes a swimming pool, hot tub, and fire pits to enjoy in your downtime.

We don’t just provide actionable content to develop your leadership practice. We also take the time to consider what applies most dearly to where you are in your journey.

Please note that every participant has their own twin bed, but not a private room. If you bring a friend or two, we can absolutely set you up together.
