Leading with Purpose (LwP) is a one-day retreat experience for women in leadership to build their capacity to effectively and sustainably lead in the modern world of work. We know how hard and lonely it can be at the "top" and how many demands women in leadership have to juggle. Within a supportive and extraordinary community of like-hearted humans, our goal is to help you realign your priorities, (re)claim your power, build confidence, share knowledge and tools, and find solutions to your biggest leadership challenges.

Above all, at LwP, we commit to creating a container where you feel seen, heard, and cared for, and we can't wait to be on the journey with you.

The Value We Offer

We seek to create a safe and inclusive environment for deep learning, powerful community building, and intentional skill/mindset development. Each stop on the tour will have slightly different outcomes based on the individuals who sign up and their needs (the magic is in the customization). However, you and all participants can expect to walk away with:


  • New skills, frameworks, tools, and resources for improved effectiveness as a senior leader, especially in relation to being a female leader

  • Ideas and solutions for overcoming your unique leadership and professional challenges

  • Goals and next steps for sustaining your leadership and professional wellbeing in the short and long term 

  • Enhanced understanding of where you are and where you’re going in work and in life

  • A community of like-hearted woman/female-identifying people to connect and exchange ideas with beyond the Retreat

  • Renewed energy for leadership, mission, personal/professional growth and changing the world


What’s the ROI (return on investment) for your organization or team? 

We know that it can be hard to justify investing time and money into leadership development experiences. Your participation will not only benefit you individually but also yield positive outcomes for your team and organization!


  • Getting away from the daily grind opens space in your brain for innovation, creativity, and new possibility

  • New connections with like-hearted peers leads to new opportunities for business collaborations and partnerships

  • Building a stronger network of support and trusted peers offers more options for when things get hard

  • Collaborative problem-solving time exposes you to outside-the-box and innovative solutions to tactical and adaptive challenges facing your team or company

  • Building your wellbeing and renewing your energy helps manifest wellbeing, confidence, and energy for the people and/or communities you lead

  • Establishing a stronger vision for your leadership allows you to focus in on what matters most with your team and amplify opportunity for others


And this is just the beginning! These experiences tend to have ripple effects for years to come, and we are so excited for the impact we will create together!

"Attending [a retreat with Reloveution] means entering a space where you won't leave the same way you came in. It's a place where you build new, meaningful relationships with like-hearted individuals who genuinely support you on your journey. You'll find the support you didn't even know you needed. This is a space where you can rediscover your courage, heal from burnout, and redefine your purpose and passions."

"The best part was the bond that we were able to create in just one day with other women in leadership. It was incredibly humbling and impactful to be in the presence of so many individuals who are doing amazing things professionally and personally. I loved the different activities that were put in place for us to be vulnerable, problem solve and get to know ourselves and each other."
