A Day of Empowerment and Unity for Team Lola

A Day of Empowerment and Unity for Team Lola

On a bright Sunday, January 14th, our Lola Hair Studio team embarked on an inspiring journey at our annual retreat, “Emerge + Elevate,” hosted at Anna’s welcoming home. It was a day dedicated to empowerment and self-discovery.

Our Mission

We inspire confidence, courage, and connection through the beauty of design. By prioritizing fun, creativity, and quality we aim to make a positive impact on the world on design at a time.

The day began by Anna sharing with us her goals, and how she plans to help us grow as a team this year. We were then greeted by our dear friend, expert coach and educator, Andrew Carruthers. Andrew travels around the world, bringing dedicated support to help empower you and to discover your most authentic self. So, we dove into engaging exercises to explore our own personal values, which we were able to pen down in our custom Lola journals! It was an enlightening experience to witness how we perceive ourselves and to dive deep into explorations of our own authenticity.

Complementing our journey of self-exploration, Anna’s sister Deb, our secret celebrity chef, prepared a delightful culinary experience. She treated us to an array of delectable dishes, including Eggplant Parmigiana, chicken cacciatore, and a variety of vegetables.

Our post-lunch session was filled with fun and creativity as we were greeted by the social media duo, Big Day Besties, who joined us to document our special moments with lively videos and photos. We continued to delve into our core values through authenticity training and engaging breathwork sessions. This introspective exploration set the stage for one of the day’s highlights: the creation of our vision boards for 2024.

These vision boards are more than just art projects; they are powerful manifestations of our individual and collective aspirations. Each board is a deeply personal map, guiding us towards our dreams and embodying the essence of what we aim to achieve both personally and as a united team at Lola Hair Studio. Displayed within our studio, these vision boards serve as a constant source of motivation and a visual testament to our commitment to growth, authenticity, and our shared journey forward.

The retreat wrapped up with a crucial exercise in conflict resolution, expertly facilitated by Andrew. Leveraging his deep understanding of martial arts, Andrew offered us a unique perspective on managing confrontations. He guided us through scenarios where we faced attacks, teaching us how to effectively de-escalate these situations by adopting a viewpoint of understanding and empathy. This exercise wasn't just about resolving conflicts; it was a transformative lesson in seeing challenges through diverse lenses, a skill that enhances our personal and professional interactions.

In conclusion, our retreat was an enlightening and transformative experience, one that left us with valuable insights and tools for personal and professional growth. If you're interested in delving deeper into Andrew's expertise and immersing yourself in his wealth of knowledge, we encourage you to explore his website: The Journeyist. There, you'll find a treasure trove of resources and information that can enrich your own journey of self-discovery and empowerment.
