Hi there, I’m Rocky Garza. I'm dedicated to DISRUPTING the lies we believe and helping you become RESTORED to your truest self.

I would be honored to have the opportunity to spend some time with your group and can't wait to dig deep into WHO you are so that you find the freedom to be WHO you were created to be. Over the last 15 years I have watched, learned, pressed into and most importantly put into practical action, becoming a people expert. 8 years in full time ministry and another 7 years as an entrepreneur, and with a quite unconventional childhood, and what I challenge others to do is not a theory, it is my everyday. 

Somehow in the last 50 years we have expanded markets, created the internet, build devices to hold in our hand that allows us access to almost anything we wish and yet have the highest levels of dissatisfaction in our lives we have ever had in history. It seems to me that no matter how well we can scale an idea into a profitable market or how quickly we can "connect" with others on the other side of the world via the internet, we are missing the most valuable asset we have, each other.

Identity Mapping is not an online assessment. It is not a quiz that tells you about you. It is deep introspective process that allows you to explore WHO you are as a human with uninterrupted face-to-face relational conversation. I will tell you nothing about you that you don't tell me first. I will be the unbiased 3rd party to give you clarity. We can do this as full day or workshop style event.


 

NACE Orlando + Rocky Garza

Every day we have task lists, lesson plans, conflict management, and student issues; all while trying to maintain autonomy with our staff. With so much to do, it's easy for our conversations to get lost in the daily business of it all. Of course, task lists and curriculum matter, but not near as much as the people running them. We care about our staff, but are we willing to take time to care for them as individuals that are a part of our team, asking... "Why do you do what you do? How do you work best? How can I serve you?"  People want to be cared about. They want to know you value them. 

Our 1 of a kind experiences not only helps each individual member leave with the deepest picture of  WHO they are as an individual, but WE leave the most connected and understood as a team we have ever been. As a leader in networking, community building and people & culture, this is a must for your team.

I know that your organization has INCREDIBLE values and it is your core focus to keep everyone work in them. It is my desire to do the same for your people. When they know what they value, they have an event stronger sense of where they fit.

"IF THE TRUTH BE TOLD: I AM UNIQUE & SO ARE YOU"

We define CORE Values as the WHY you do what you do.  In all instances and in every role we play, we have a reason, intention and motivation. By identifying our CORE Values we can bring a language and vernacular to our daily life that most of us miss. We tend to get caught up in the WHAT we do way before we have the conversation around WHY we do it. If we don't start with the WHY then we have missed the entire boat. They give way to how we lead, we set goals, we make decisions and communicate our own value to others. It is a must have!

“VULNERABILITY & EMPATHY: HOW TO SEE AND UNDERSTAND OTHERS FOR WHO THEY ARE”

Don’t let those words scare you, lean into them. I have found over the last 10 years that no matter the organization or the age of the audience, we all desire to be seen and to be understood. It is why we find meetings going longer than needed, why we see staff become frustrated with seemingly small things and why the culture of our staff is the most important factor to our success. So how can we allow ourselves to be seen and use that as a tool to understand those around us? I believe it is by allowing space for vulnerability and leaning into empathy with one another.

~Testimonials~

Rocky led a full-day team transformation experience for the me and my direct reports, the People & Culture Leadership team of Grant Thornton. The focus of the work was preparing the team for a leadership transition given my planned departure through the exploration of our individual and collective values, strengths and powers. Rocky skillfully orchestrated an experience that was intimate, raw and empowering. His deep listening skills coupled with his authentic approach to engaging created the ideal environment for the team to participate vulnerably and whole-heartedly. In his opening, Rocky claimed, "at the end of the day you will know yourself more deeply than you ever have." Without exception, we did! I highly recommendRocky Garza to any individual or team who is looking to become known, seen and empowered not through gimmicks but through real conversation.

Pamela Harless ||Chief People & Culture Officer || Grant Thornton

I've been to a lot of "workshops" and team building "off sites" over the last 12 years. Today our leadership team spent the day with Rocky and this is the best I've experienced. Rocky has an unique gift for helping individuals and teams give words to their core values and strengths while providing practical, actionable takeaways that lead to greater influence and impact. If you lead a team and are looking for an incredible resource to increase the scope of your group's impact, you have to check out Rocky!

Kyle Sims|Sr. Regional Vice President | Axa Financial

With just a brief orientation, Rocky ‘got us.’ He delivered a session to our leadership team regarding core values and discovering our why. He was able to effectively weave our strategic meeting themes through the session which resulted in a fantastic kick-off to our team’s time together. Rocky effortlessly engaged the team from the first minute and created a safe space to share and continue the dialogue even after our time with him was over. I would highly recommend Staff Retreat Co. and Rocky to any organization looking to build a dynamic and highly engaged team/organization.

Tracey McShane-Wilson || Executive Director of Talent & Acquisition || Grant Thornton

If I could describe having Rocky lead our annual leadership conference, I would say “incredible”. He lead our opening keynote, lead an afternoon breakout session and closed the conference the next day. It was a powerful to say the least and honestly, the way he closed it left out entire 100+ leaders in a standing ovation. He fully immersed himself in our culture and custom fit all the sessions to our staff perfect. He is a MUST hire.

Dustin Livingood || Vice President of Marketing||Monogram Realty Trust

"Our time with Rocky exceeded my expectations. As a manager, I was thrilled to see my team fully embrace the process and let their guards down to get the best possible experience. In a corporate setting, it's rare to be so honest and vulnerable with your co-workers. Rocky encouraged all of us to dig deeper, communicate effectively and how to treat one another through our identity mapping discoveries. I saw this as an investment in my people- personally and professionally. Rocky was the perfect person to guide us through this process and I cannot think of a better way to spend a day outside of the office!"
