Executive Retreat Program
This program is delivered in three retreats over a one-year period.
I. Discovering the Examen – April 27 - 28, 2006
The first retreat will introduce the executives to the Examen developed by St. Ignatius Loyola. They will use the Examen, a rich reflective tool, to discover the nobility of God’s call in their work. Retreatants will be shown how they can use the Examen to reflect and discern God’s presence in their business activity over a six-month period.
II. Applying the Examen to Your Leadership Style – October 19 - 20, 2006
The second retreat, given six months after the first retreat, will focus on the use of the Examen to enhance and develop executive leadership. At the conclusion of the second retreat, retreatants will begin a personal six-month experience to reflect upon their call to leadership, assessing the quality of their leadership decisions as they are made.
III. Transforming Your Business through the Broadened Horizons of Catholic Social Teaching – April 26 - 27, 2007
The third and final retreat, given six months after the second retreat, will introduce the executives to the broadened horizon and principles of Catholic social teaching in their practice of the Examen. Executives will learn practical ways to implement these principles in their organizational structures and corporate governance.
