Everyone feels heard, yet no one dominates; you never feel rushed, but you always end on time.

These are the hallmarks of well-facilitated meetings and retreats.


No one knows your organization better than you, but truly skilled facilitators can bring objectivity, discipline and efficiency to your meetings and retreats. With particular expertise in agenda management, time management, group dynamics and crowd control, the highly experienced facilitators at Leap Solutions come fully prepared and completely focused on driving your meeting toward your desired outcomes.

For board meetings, team building and strengthening, group facilitation and management, retreats and more, we serve as your guide in facilitating discussions and building consensus among stakeholders, challenging your team to rethink assumptions and advance fresh ideas, and setting action-oriented priorities and timelines. You’ll come away feeling more productive and accomplished than ever.

Leap Solutions has broadened our lens in order for us to see beyond what we originally envisioned as administrators for our school. They’re diligent listeners who bring valuable outside perspective and legitimacy to our work, and they’ve helped us engage with our many stakeholders and move forward in a truly thoughtful way.  Leap facilitators achieve just the right balance and fluidity between handholding and stepping back, giving us all the guidance and reassurance we need yet empowering us to own the entire process for ourselves.

The Leap team is very competent, high energy and collaborative, and they helped us put together an administration team retreat where we learned how to drive our mission forward, recognize our talents and develop our strengths, and understand how to build stronger, more global working relationships. Leap also assisted us with recruiting for a key position. I went into the process with a set level of expectations, and Leap met them and went well beyond. They have tremendous experience helping you drill down what to focus on and what you’re looking for, develop a valuable and succinct timeline, and get what you’re paying for and much more.

I keep coming back to Leap Solutions because they value the work I do, and I see the outcomes of the work they do: growth in managers, enhanced leadership skills, and more and better teamwork. Most recently, Leap facilitated an incredible retreat for my team. With their engaging style and gift for making every individual feel comfortable, the Leap team was once again spot-on in meeting the group where they’re at, really listening, and letting the day flow where it needed to flow to accomplish solid work. It’s a huge commitment to take a team of leaders out of work for a day—you want to know it’s worthwhile and that each participant will get something truly meaningful out of it. Unanimously, my team did.

The retreat Leap facilitated exceeded my expectations on many levels, and I cannot thank them enough for their assistance. The strongest message I got out of this was my need to be more available to my employees. Thinking along those lines, I plan to work again with Leap to really develop a plan to do this. It is very evident to me that for us to proceed to that next level, this is key.
