Did you say.. Llama Retreat?





If we’re being honest, we all have challenges coming our way. The good news is that our perspective helps us navigate life…sometimes a small shift in how we think can make all the difference!

Last week, I was with @MHDS (an organization that oversees disability-related services for children and adults in Iowa) facilitating their “Llama retreat.”


The team spent the morning at a llama farm for team building, and then I met them nearby at a State Park for a workshop on building culture and resilience.


We talked about how changes in their organization, budget, and regulations will affect their work in the near future, and we also talked about perspective and how resilience is not a purely individual characteristic because relationships and networks enable it.


The people on our teams (plus our friends and loved ones) help us rebound from setbacks by helping us:


Shift work or manage surges

Make sense of people or politics in a given situation

Find the confidence to push back and self-advocate

See a path forward

Provide empathic support so we can release negative emotions

Laugh at ourselves and the situation

Remind us of the purpose or meaning in our work


And if we’re being honest, we all have challenges coming our way. The good news is that our perspective helps us navigate life…sometimes a small shift in how we think can make all the difference!


Now I am super curious. Have you ever been to a llama farm?! Comment below!
