Their business will improve – isn’t that the idea?

facilitator advice
Facilitator Advice

"I always conduct a session with the CEO/member to talk through what he/she would like to achieve in the retreat. While I generally lay out a potential framework similar to what is here, I find it’s best to let them weigh in on what outcomes they’re hoping to achieve and buy-in to the proposed process. Many times this leads to an additional step of interviewing retreat participants prior to the retreat to make sure we’re calibrating our approach properly, get a heads up of any toxic people or significant issues that could be problematic."

  • 75% of receivables are over 30 days, even though the sales terms of the company are net 30 days.
  • Shipping costs are high which limits our ability to ship outside a certain radius.
