Welcome to the Chief of Staff Leadership Retreat, an exclusive program held over three days designed to empower and equip current Chiefs of Staff with the necessary tools and insights to enhance their influence within their organizations. This retreat offers a unique opportunity for Chiefs of Staff to connect with peers, reflect on their experiences, and learn new frameworks and skills.


Learn more about what you’ll get from this Retreat:

When and where is this program?
  • The Chief of Staff Leadership Retreat will begin with a Welcome Lunch at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, September 18th. The Retreat will close by 12:00 pm on Friday, September 20th. The Retreat will take place at McChrystal Group Headquarters located at 333 N Fairfax Street, Alexandria, VA 22314.
What is included in the price for the Chief of Staff Leadership Retreat?
  • The price for the Chief of Staff Leadership Retreat will include hotel accommodations for Wednesday and Thursday night, all meals during your stay, and the 3-day offsite facilitated by experts in leadership, the Chief of Staff role, and team effectiveness.
Who is the ideal candidate to participate in this program?
  • If you’re a current Chief of Staff looking to increase your influence within your organization and develop as a leader, we’d love to host you at this session. This will allow current Chiefs of Staff to connect with others in the role, reflect on their experiences, and learn new tools and frameworks from McChrystal Group experts.
  • We’ll be keeping this group intentionally small to focus on fostering deep connections.
What type of content will be covered in this retreat?
  • The retreat will be heavily focused on behaviors and skills that Chiefs of Staff need to be successful in their role. We’ll base our content around our CHIEF OF STAFF FRAMEWORK and share specific tools and models that Chiefs can leverage to communicate better, align, and make decisions with their principal and team.
Is it all the same material that was covered in the previous McChrystal Group Chief of Staff Executive Virtual Session?
  • No. And unlike other Chief of Staff programs, we’ll put an emphasis on how Chiefs can develop as leaders in their own right, giving time and space for reflection, which we know is something that, as Chiefs of Staff, there is usually not a lot of time for. Finally, given that we are back in person, you’ll see that there will be a lot of time in small group discussions as we know the power of learning from each other.
