The UWM Center for Community-Based Learning, Leadership, and Research provides leadership development and team-building opportunities for student organizations, campus departments, and Milwaukee non-profit agencies through the LEAD MKE Mini-Retreats Program. LEAD MKE Mini-Retreats are half-day experiences that empower teams to explore leadership development and group dynamics through three interactive sessions.
Facilitated in 4-6 hours by trained and certified university professionals, our mini-retreats engage participants in deep-level thinking in the areas of personality type, emotional intelligence, group dynamics, team-building, communication, as well as planning and reflection. The morning begins with each individual member of the team completing one of the personality instruments and then learning about what it means for individuals and groups. Then, as a group, the team completes a team-building exercise that challenges participants to communicate better, listen to one another, and problem-solve. The mini-retreat ends with a reflection lunch.
