On September 16th, 29 of us arrived Semiahmoo Resort for a two-day retreat to focus on leadership development. We are the 2nd year Leadership MBA students from UW Bothell. The retreat went well since we were open to share and eager to learn. The fact that we trusted each other made the learning process enjoyable and fruitful. Trust was a hot topic while we discussed how to let go of “control”. We did case studies, practiced giving feedback, discussed Authentic, Servant and Transformational Leadership and reflected who we were as a leader.
Semiahmoo Resort is a beautiful facilitate by Semiahmoo Bay. It’s quite an experience to watch the sun shine on the water and work on the challenging assignment – “potential discrepancies between self and others’ view”. It’s also fun to collect rocks by the beach and reflect my leadership experience and outcomes.
The retreat moves us out of our daily life so that we could focus on learning in a different setting. At the same time, we got a chance to hang out and have fun. What an awesome experience!
