Arrivals and Evening Opening Ceremony:
Rising Above the Battleground
As leaders, we yearn to find a higher place to see the world around us. From that viewpoint all things are possible. Just as important, the most important possibilities are more visible.
Astronauts on the Moon had the highest viewpoint in human history and when they looked down on Earth they all had a profound change in their understanding of what it meant to be alive on Earth.
If you looked down at your leadership life from the perspective of being above the battleground – What do you see? What are you doing? What do you feel? And, most importantly, Who are you Being?
During the retreat, Justice Quintana will lead morning spiritual and physical workouts that promise to bring your day into sharp focus. He is a martial arts master, Pilates and Yoga instructor, and certified trainer and massage therapist. A New Mexico native, he’s the CEO of Just Results in Wimberley, Texas.

Day One: Find Your Essential Self
You have a self and a self-concept. You spend your days constructing and fighting against the self-concept you have constructed. Let’s tear down those walls and connect to the leadership self you always wanted to be. We’ll focus on building radical self-awareness that literally changes who you are being in the world and the doors that are opening to you.
You will receive the book Being Essential: Seven Questions for Living and Leading with Radical Self-Awareness in preparation for this retreat and what can be accomplished on Day One is activating and operationalizing the themes you have read in the book.

Day Two: Connect with Your Heroic Cause
Self-awareness expresses itself in a life-altering cause. How can your cause set you apart in a sea of sameness? Your hero’s journey has to be tied to – and fired by – your heroic cause. Your heroic cause starts with this question: “What problem(s) in the world am I trying to solve?” During Day Two, you will learn your Highest Goal and how to identify your purpose in this life, your most essential cause.
You will receive the book CAUSE!: A Business Strategy for Standing Out in a Sea of Sameness in preparation for this retreat and what can be accomplished on Day Two is activating and operationalizing the themes you read in the book.

Day Three: Guide Your Growth With Vision
Vision helps you navigate the changes ahead. It takes awareness – knowing where you are and why, a cause – knowing why you’re here and what you are called to do, and new rules of the road on which you’ll drive your life forward. This is the Warrior’s Path, with the skills to journey to your ultimate destination.
You will receive the book Guiding Growth: How Vision Keeps Companies on Course in preparation for this retreat and what can be accomplished on Day Three is activating and operationalizing the themes you read in the book.
Closing Ceremony: Living and Leading Your Moon Dance
Full moon party, wrapping up with everyone making a personal statement of their Essential Self, their Cause and how they will be Undisruptable.
