How are you planning to achieve your goals?
I am talking about the specific process you have in place to guide you from where you are right now to a specific point within a specific time frame, not the thoughts that are in your head that you wish you could bring to life.
What if, unlike a conference filled to capacity, you could actually see tangible, forward movement within your business in a weekend?
What would be different about you — an organizational or entrepreneurial leader — if you had a clear and compelling road map with support and accountability all year long?
The Unveiling Retreat Business Intensive Weekend is an experience that provides the support, resources and guidance needed to ensure you, as a leader, are positioned to thrive — not just when all is well but when challenges arise. Our approach is a masterful blend of facilitated learning, exploratory coaching and experience-based consulting.
Let me tell you how that looks.
Facilitated Learning focuses on sharing insights, information and resources — a framework — to excavate your rich knowledge in order to help you bring your vision to life. We work through your knowledge and capabilities and leverage them to design a road map that helps you more effectively navigate your journey.
With Exploratory Coaching, we focus on where you are and where you desire to go. We will clarify your vision, identify and eliminate obstacles, and accelerate your growth to achieve clear, measurable results.
Experience-based Consulting is a solutions-driven approach focused on sustainable growth and profitability. We use our expertise and specialized experience to help you develop products, services and approaches that deliver measurable value to your clients, employers, partners, supporters and team members. We will specifically share insights rooted in: leading effectively, creating compelling strategies, executing with excellence and creating exceptional experiences.
What will we focus on?
- Generating significant revenue/income consistently
- Attracting new clients/employers – the right fit
- Retaining current clients
- Establishing and strengthening key relationships
- Creating and tweaking products, services and capabilities
- Managing expenses and projecting revenue/income
- Developing a relevant marketing strategy
- Communicating clear value for client and opportunity attraction
- Building a team without breaking the bank
- Prioritizing yourself through radical self-care
- Maintaining a strong, healthy personal foundation
- Anticipating expected results
- Measuring your actions’ effectiveness
You will leave with a plan that you will have already begun executing. We do not believe in overwhelming you with information and sending you on your way to work through it on your own.
Whether you lead a for-profit business, nonprofit organization or are navigating your leadership and personal development, having and executing a clear strategy is critical to your success.
What is different about this experience?
How many conferences, workshops, webinars and teleclasses have you attended?
Have you read lots of books, created vision boards, attended networking events?
How much have you actually put into action?
Often, the biggest hurdle to taking action lies in getting ready to take action. This is an action-oriented experience. It is time that you will carve out to do in a supportive setting what you have hesitated to do on your own.

If you are ready to move forward and need support or understand the benefit of having a consistent, supportive, disciplined approach to bringing your vision to life, this experience is for you.
“I have attended four of the past five retreats and cannot say enough about the difference I have seen in how I spend my time daily, what I offer my clients and how my actions have consistently grown my revenue year after year. Setting the intention is important. Taking action is necessary! My last five years have made leading a business much more enjoyable than the first ten years.”
~ Health and Wellness Entrepreneur, Florida
Everything that we do is customized based on your specific needs!
Yes, we have content that focuses on marketing trends and practices, collaborating on larger scale products and services, typical toleration’s that inhibit your progress, identifying business and leadership opportunities, etc.
Additionally, we take action to:
- Identify the most relevant approach for you
- Assess your business and personal health to guide your action steps
- Create approaches to help you say “no” to whatever holds you back and “yes” to opportunities that align with what you desire – even the big, scary opportunities
- Develop communications that not only get your foot in the door but help you secure opportunities…
- And so much more focused, results-based work!
“Having a clear plan saved me so much time and money. I felt as if a ton had been lifted from my shoulders because I was in a room with peers who could relate to my challenges and leaders who could help me work through them. From building a support team to projecting costs and revenue to simply taking time for myself, it is all part of this experience. Investing in this level of hands-on support would have easily cost me ten times more than I invested. What I saved in stress and overwhelm alone made me see how important it is to have an ongoing, clear plan to growing my business and improving myself.”
~Technology Consulting Firm CEO, Washington, DC

About Your Facilitator
I am a business leader with practical experience who is committed to helping leaders – whether in their own business or leading in someone else’s organization – lead from chaos to clarity. It can be lonely and challenging being a leader. Yet, it is in that uncomfortable space that I serve at my highest and best. The tougher the challenge the stronger my attraction.
As Founder and CEO of The Batie Group, a boutique consulting firm that I founded in 2005, I am called to help leaders maximize their potential by understanding what is most important to them, planning for what they want to achieve and acting on that plan to avoid being stagnant. My experience working for Fortune 500 companies was an excellent training ground. However, I know that exceptional experiences can be created in any organization, no matter how large or small.
“Practical insight, powerful impact”… that is what clients say about how I serve and engage with others. One client affectionately named me “an iron fist wrapped in a velvet glove of love.” Yes, that is who I am. I have a no-nonsense approach and a compassionate heart. If you say you want to achieve it, I want to be alongside you every step of the way.
Along with gaining rich experience, I continue investing in my development and growth. I earned by Bachelor’s degree in Accounting from Salisbury University, an MBA from the University of Maryland University College and a leadership certificate from Harvard University – all while working full-time. I believe in making room for what is important and I want the same for you.
