"I was searching for a consultant with expertise in academic medical centers and came upon ViaHCC through a series of recommendations. From the onset of early conversations with the principal consultant, I knew ViaHCC would be the consulting firm who could facilitate my vice chair retreat to help us develop a transformative five-year strategic plan for my department. The time with [them] was invaluable in developing a mission statement, vision, and objectives ... We are continuing to seek their guidance to move our plan forward. The experience has exceeded my expectations."

– The Cheshire Cat, Alice in Wonderland

At ViaHCC, we echo the wisdom of the Cheshire Cat from Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. We believe that clarity of purpose is the compass guiding every successful retreat. Here’s how we ensure your retreat achieves your objectives:

Define Clear Objectives

Define your destination. We work closely with you to articulate clear and achievable objectives. These objectives serve as the North Star, ensuring every discussion, every activity, aligns with your organizational goals.

Curate the Right Participants

A successful retreat hinges on the people in the room. We recommend inviting key stakeholders, including board members, CEOs, and a skilled facilitator. Limiting attendance to essential participants fosters open and honest conversations.

Cultivate Meaningful Conversations

Trust is the bedrock of effective leadership. We create a conducive environment for genuine conversations, allowing participants to build connections and establish trust, essential for productive dialogue.

Choose Quality Over Quantity

In the age of information overload, we value quality discussions over a deluge of data. Our carefully designed agenda focuses on the most pertinent issues, ensuring participants engage deeply without feeling overwhelmed.

Avoid Routine Business

Routine is the enemy of innovation. We steer clear of routine board matters, freeing your board to engage in strategic thinking, creative problem-solving, and visionary discussions. This intentional focus unleashes the full potential of your retreat.
