The sole proprietor seldom thinks about having his or her own personal and professional business retreat but Catalyst is pleased to announce that many of its clients do that. Our sole firm owners take time to look backwards so they can move forward both personally and professionally. The retreat is a time of personal and professional reflection coupled with a hard look at where the firm is at the moment and where it needs to go. Our clients walk away energized and enthused to continue its goal for on-going improvement to a profitable law firm business.
Our clients who are in a partnership have the same goals. By coming together once a year in a pre-planned facilitated retreat, the partners can review its governance, make sure the partners are aligned with the same vision, and can provide direction as it moves forward. Governance is more than the name of ‘partner’ but an active participation in the affairs of the firm. If the firm has a managing partner, this is a time to provide guidance in the growth and development of the firm so that the firm is pro-active and not reactive.
Healthy owners or partnerships set aside time every year to have a working retreat that readdresses the entire firm, its strategic plan, and makes course corrections as needed.

Profitability with stability comes from constant planning and course correction.
