The CEO Recharge

The CEO Recharge provides an opportunity for CEOs to take stock of their business, update their skill set, clarify their leadership goals, and replenish energy tanks. 


Participating CEOs build toward the final output of the Recharge experience: a clear, well-considered CEO Strategy to guide their CEO activities over the coming business phase.


Build a clear well-considered CEO strategy

Optimal system performance

The demands of the CEO role require CEOs to take opportunities to step away from the daily cut-and-thrust of business to power their best CEOship. The CEO Recharge is a forum-style experience with peer CEOs, who share similar challenges and require similar rejuvenation. 

The CEO Recharge combines powerful reflective techniques, the assessment of business performance to identify performance leaks, new tools, and open-forum discussions with fellow CEOs. The retreat format allows for time to build perspective and re-energise, leaving CEOs ready to take on the next business phase with renewed energy, a clearer plan, and sharper skills.

Program format


The CEO Recharge moves through a
carefully considered sequence:

CEOs take time to revisit the underlying meaning of their work, reconnecting to what matters, what they are aspiring to, and rebuilding energy for their quest.

Using a sophisticated 3D modelling technique, CEOs look at the patterns playing out across their businesses, looking for places of adjustment and improvement.

Using the Enneagram, a powerful personal and professional development tool, CEOs can observe their behaviours and habits relative to their profile. Important shadow behaviour and blind spots are often revealed through this tool.

CEOs spend time in nature to reconnect with the elements while contemplating fundamental questions that are central to their CEO contribution.

CEOs have the opportunity to engage with peer CEOs and learn from their shared experiences. Some conversations are organic; some are facilitated. Both forms of conversation serve to normalise CEO challenges.

CEOs leave the Recharge with a personalised CEO Strategy: a playbook that covers all aspects of the CEO’s role: leadership initiatives; business goals; performance enhancements; and personal growth.


Frequently asked questions

The CEO Recharge provides value directly back into your business through a rigorous process of assessing your business, defining what is needed relative to your goals together with clear leadership actions.

CEOs are carefully vetted for quality: themselves and their business. All CEOs are growth-minded, have a threshold level of experience, and are of sound character.

CEOs need time to unplug from the pressures of daily CEO life to think. With the gift of this time and space, CEOs unlock better thinking and wiser actions. This time is transformational and is necessary to change the course of a business’s growth trajectory.

The Recharge is for CEOs who are motivated to grow themselves and their businesses whilst building businesses of consequence. The experience is exacting and requires a threshold level of buy-in.


What our clients say

Most of my previous experience with leadership coaches has been underwhelming: theoretical models, loose deliverables, trite commentary, and superficial analysis. Rowan is the absolute antithesis of this and the impact is fast, measurable and deep. The work is often hard but pushes people through doors very quickly.
Jonty Fisher
What the hell should a CEO focus their energy on? It's a question I grappled with for years as our company and its demands on me began to grow. Rowan has helped me figure some of this stuff out and point me in the right direction.
Styli Charalambous
I have had the privilege of being informed and inspired by Rowan over the past few years. His prompts, processes, and conversations are always deeply valuable, intellectual, and practical. His IP is unequaled, but his humanity and his deep belief that being a CEO can be joyful, creative, and energising - and not just something to be endured - is very unique and useful.
Kevin Liebenberg
Rowan has a passion to see CEO's thrive and not merely survive. He has an in-depth understanding of the complexity and demand of the role of CEO'ship and then takes it to the next level by understanding you in the role as CEO. As an entrepreneur and CEO, the input and guidance I have received from him have been invaluable and at times a lifeline. I highly recommend the CEO project.
Philippa Geard
My journey with Rowan has been life-changing and continues to be life-changing. Not only for my CEO work but as a person too. Every time I’ve sat around a table with Rowan and my CEO peers, I feel challenged and inspired. Somehow the topics always hit the right spot at a time I need it.
