Adventure & Executive

Leadership Retreats

Life has gotten real wouldn’t you agree? The world we live in has changed, the way we conduct business has changed, and how we lead has changed. That is why I am going to share with you why your executive leadership retreats need to change.

As a leader, I know you have experienced typical leadership retreats. It’s hosted at a comfortable resort with a structured agenda. The intention is to help you and your team bond, develop as leaders and return with a fresh mindset ready to take your organization to the next level.

If you have read anything about real change you know it does not happen when you are comfortable. Sitting around a boardroom table talking about strategies and spreadsheets is mind-numbing and will do nothing to support real growth and change for your team.  

Real leadership transformation happens when you get uncomfortable. Really uncomfortable. The leadership retreats I facilitate change what you believe about yourself, your team, and your organization. I provide you with an experience that will shift your mindset, help you realize your true potential, and inspire a new narrative to your old story.

You and your team will return with a greater sense of confidence, an exciting story to tell, and a new perspective about who you are and what you are capable of as leaders.

Real Results

The retreats I facilitate are about real adventure. No fancy hotels or comfortable boardrooms. The retreats I host are held at the top of a mountain typically in Montana. And yes, you will need to hike there.

The retreats are designed to get you uncomfortable, so you have an experience that results in real change. The retreat requires you and your team to plan and prepare physically and mentally. You will be uncomfortable, and you will transcend your current leadership.

You never see awe striking views that leave you breathless from the bottom of the mountain. Leadership requires curiosity, being a risk taker, and a desire for change. Retreats designed with real adventures present uncertainty, obstacles, challenges, and decision making you cannot experience in an office environment or around the boardroom table. 

If you want to become a more authentic leader and are ready to transcend, ask yourself “am I ready to get uncomfortable?” Are you ready to get out of the boardroom and go on a journey to the top of a mountain? Are you ready to experience an authentic shift and return home with a new leadership story to tell?

Please contact me and we can talk about customizing an Adventure Leadership Retreat for you and your team.

What is most authentic about Dionne is that not only does she push us to be curious, honest, and intentional in our daily work, she lives those things in our office environment too!

The Port X Journey with Dr. Dionne Kress

“I call this a journey of leadership, success, and gratification that has changed the lives of so many people.  When many organizations think of a leadership coach or a leadership retreat, they think of 1 off meetings and ask what is the ROI.  

When Port X was in its first year we saw great success, but also great chaos.  We quickly realized that we needed to bring order to that chaos and support the leadership team personally and professionally.  Over the next year we got everyone in their lanes and set an organization structure for success.  The Port X business and leadership team continued to flourish.  We realized that it was not just the leadership team who could benefit, but the entire organization.  We rolled it out to support the people.  Not just at work but helping them on their own personal journeys, some business and some personal.

Port X is now closing in on our 4th anniversary and we have more than doubled our revenue every year and will eclipse the $100 Million milestone in 2021.  Quite an impressive task for a bunch of hard working, get after it, doers.  No VC, no fancy degrees, just people on a mission to be the absolute best in their industry, while creating an aspirational brand, and changing lives.  

Dionne has helped me and helped the team stay on track, stick to the plan, be accountable, and lead with the heart.  It’s a story of massive success and we could not be more grateful for her help on this journey.  I have asked many, from people in the industry, to financial experts, to accountants if they have ever seen anything transform and grow like Port X Logistics.  The answer is always NO.

In my mind the keys to success have been keeping everything raw and real.  Dionne makes us do that.  Digging deep to help people accomplish amazing things over the long haul and maintaining everyone’s accountability.  Everything we do is HARD.  Its hard for a reason.  To help people realize they can accomplish amazing things.  For example our leadership retreats come with no guide, no fancy hotel, no boardroom.  They are held in the mountains of Montana and designed to push people mentally and physically.  You have to prepare for the 10 mile hike, prepare to sleep in the elements, carry all of your gear, and be prepared with our individual plans and stories to push Port X to new heights.  

The Port X Logistics journey has been the most amazing thing I have accomplished in my life.  We have stayed true to our declaration of independence, our business plan, and our success factors.  With Dionne helping us to navigate the journey I can certainly say we have accomplished what we have set out to do.  We have changed lives and laid the foundation for a very successful and sustainable company.  

Thank you Dee for helping us accomplish our goals.”
