High Performance Retreats for Leadership


Leaders go first

Leadership productivity generates team productivity. Whether the culture of your organization supports or sabotages your teams’ ability to do their best work every day is determined by how their leaders get work done.

Too often, the biggest challenge to a team’s productivity is the behaviors of its leader. Leadership development can help your organization overcome this challenge. Commit your leadership retreat to identifying and replacing behaviors that inhibit the creation of a culture of high performance at your organization.

Maura offers comprehensive leadership training options, both virtually and on-site.

If your teams face a consistently high-pressure environment, get distracted easily, have difficulty prioritizing,
and fail to produce desired results, your leaders’ habits and your business culture could be the primary culprits.
To unleash your team’s potential, your leadership needs more effective habits and your culture needs a reset.

Grounded in scientific research and three decades of experience helping individuals and teams maximize productivity,
leadership training provided by Maura Thomas has a proven track record of helping executives make the
culture and structure changes required to support lasting improvement throughout their organization.

Let’s discuss your organization’s specific situation.

Participants in our leadership development program will identify and devise strategies to solve problems on some or all of the following topics around leadership productivity, customized to your unique situation:


Identifying Your Teams' Skill Gaps

How to manage the high-pressure, technology-rich, constantly-changing work environment faced by knowledge workers today. This enables executives to more effectively lead, allocate resources, and hold people accountable.

Shifting Your Teams Away from “Time Management”

How the idea of “time management” may actually be sabotaging productivity at your organization, and how the mastery of its replacement, attention management, is the answer.

Maximizing Knowledge Work

How to maximize knowledge work: In an environment where your employees’ brain is the tool of their trade, you need to support their ability to “bring their A game” every day.

Improving Communication Throughout the Organization

How to assess if your habits and practices within the company communication channels might be unintentionally undermining flow and disrupting high-quality work.

Supporting Your Teams' Work Life Balance

How to define expectations of availability, to maximize return on investment in vacation policies and downtime. No one can get a fresh perspective on something they never step away from and inspiration and motivation need to be replenished.

Upgrading Your Office Environment

How to create the best office environment. Your open-door policy and open-office floor plan (or the one you’re considering) could also sabotage focus, engagement, and productivity.

Crafting Remote and Hybrid Work Policies

How to establish successful remote work policies and better manage your telecommuters.

I am amazed at the changes in my life since taking your training and reading your book! I work less, I feel more in control, my stress has gone down, I sleep better, and I’m getting better results. It’s changed not only my work life but my personal life as well. My team is reporting similar results. Thank you so much!
