We understand the importance of your partner retreat or firm forum and want to work with you to ensure that it’s beneficial for everyone involved.
Whether you are planning a firm-wide meeting and need a motivational kick-off, or you are working with firm leaders on growth strategy, or anything in between, Rainmaker can customize a memorable, high-energy program to accomplish your objectives.
The Rainmaker Companies consultants and trainers are frequent presenters and facilitators at partner retreats, leadership retreats, firm-wide meetings and industry focused meetings. By weaving in industry trends and best practices with proven content on business development and leadership, the Rainmaker team is able to present content that is applicable and motivating at all levels. We are also able to customize sessions ranging from less than an hour to multiple day sessions using a variety of presentation styles, tools and media.
We will work with you in the co-development of your Partner Retreat with the goal to gain further agreement on current firm position and desired next steps. As a result of this phase, the firm will be better positioned to develop a strategic growth plan with partner agreement and participation as well as expand the perspective of leadership characteristics required of firm leaders.
Our approach is designed to gather insights, information and motivations from the current firm leadership team, facilitate discussions and planning around the current reality and desired new reality and gain agreement on the firm’s goals and next steps.
- Initial assessment and short phone interviews to determine existing perceptions, frustrations and desires of the leadership team
- Co-development of retreat objectives and agenda
- Facilitation of the retreat with a goal to have a high energy, highly interactive day which results in forward movement of the group
- Assistance with pre-and post-communication around the retreat
- In-depth review following the retreat to determine outcomes and recommendations on next steps to keep the momentum moving forward
- Development of customized firm growth and communication plan
- Ongoing accountability around the implementation of the plan
- Regularly scheduled and on-demand coaching to support the leadership in implementation and behavior change
- Access to Rainmaker training and consulting resources before, during and after the retreat for assistance with planning and implementation, potentially on an ongoing basis, as needed
As a result, your firm will be able to:

- Clarify short and long term vision and goals and determine a strategy to reach those goals
