Like corporations, couples move through a lifecycle process whereby they are faced with problems to solve, opportunities to celebrate, and challenges to overcome.
This retreat describes and draws upon parallels from a corporate lifecycle model, while providing participants with an understanding of the marriage lifecycle and its transition points. It enables participants to gain greater insights into their own corporate and marital strengths, opportunities, and challenges.
Frequently, a couple is engaged in their own “marriage lifecycle” while simultaneously involved in a corporate lifecycle process (or two). How a couple handles these experiences and this process helps to determine the potential for success or failure of the marriage and their business. This session will provide you with an understanding of the nature of these lifecycles and will help you to differentiate between typical and atypical experiences.
The purpose of such a retreat is to learn more about your relationship while having fun! The session is designed to help you to build intimacy with your partner, and develop a common plan to further enhance the growth of your relationship.
