dikebluesmile1.pngHello Friend, 

I invite you to join a select group of only 40 like-minded physician leaders in Seattle this spring - to learn proven tools and share success stories - working together to bring better ways to care for the caregivers back to your organization.

We have over 2100 hours of one-on-one physician coaching experience and have trained 20,000 physicians for 70+ corporate clients to date. This experience has allowed us to build and test hundreds of tools to lower stress, prevent burnout and become a much more effective leader. 


  • How to recognize and prevent burnout in yourself and others. 
  • Simple tools to lower stress, get home sooner, build more life balance and a more Ideal Job.
  • A specific strategy to reach out to colleagues in need. 
  • How to run better meetings, delegate effectively, deal with disruptive colleagues and much, much more.
  • How to become the Eye of the Storm, stop multitasking and leave work at work -- with our research proven mindfulness training.
  • Simple methods to build trust and engagement up and down the chain of command.
  • Specific tools to manage your boss.

  • AND we will build  a community of support for a full 12 weeks after the retreat

“You gave us practical tools for burnout. Most of the stuff out there is just “fluff” to me - this was practical.”

Here's how one of last year's participants felt about her retreat experience:

We know you are a special kind of physician leader.

You really care about your people or you would not be looking at this page in the first place. You see the burnout all around - you can feel their pain - and you are driven to do something to take better care of your colleagues.

You understand the common sense power of the Quadruple Aim - that the highest quality Patient Care depends on having healthy, happy, engaged physicians and staff. 

physician-leadership-physician-burnout-quadruple-aim.jpgYou are probably stuck in the vise of the Big Squeeze too:

  • Getting pressure from the C-Suite above - on quality, performance and profits 
  • And pressure from your over-stressed doctors below - as they struggle to keep up with the daily patient and documentation chores

You know how difficult it can be to live the Quadruple Aim when the C-Suite mandates and people's human needs don't align. If only there were simple tools to lower stress and build balance for yourself and your people. 

For seven years now, we have been building and testing that Quadruple Aim Leadership Toolkit. 

We now have over 2100 hours of one-on-one physician coaching experience and have trained 20,000 physicians for 70+ corporate clients to date. This experience has allowed us to build and test hundreds of tools to lower stress, prevent burnout and become a much more effective leader. 

  • for Individual Doctors
  • Physician Leaders
  • and Healthcare Organizations of any size

Now you can join us in Seattle to learn & practice these proven tools and begin to lead with the power of the Quadruple Aim.

“I enjoyed meeting colleagues from around the country and knowing we are all experiencing the same stuff.”
“Though I am not burned out, I found so much of it practical and helpful for preventing burnout and for bringing back to colleagues at home. I’ve recommended the tools to many people.”

Ideal Retreat Participant:

The Retreat was designed specifically for physicians in a "straddle leader" position  seeing patients AND holding a designated leadership position at the same time.

AND it is ideal for any physician leader in any leadership position in any healthcare organization. 

This double part-time job description puts straddle leaders at unique risk for their own burnout and hamstrings their ability to be an effective leader. This is why we designed the training so each day takes you to a new and deeper level. 

Day One
- Personal tools to prevent your own burnout

Day Two
- Leadership tools to support your direct reports and teams

Day Three
- A four-part strategy to hard wire the Quadruple Aim into your entire organization.

physician-leadership-activities-of-daily-leadership-adls-physician-burnout.jpgYou Will:

  • Learn how to recognize and prevent burnout in yourself and your colleagues. Physician Leaders are at special risk for burnout for a simple reason: you were never taught about burnout or leadership in your medical education. Learn simple tools to take much better care of yourself and your people. 
  • Learn how to run better meetings, manage your boss, build more life balance, delegate effectively, deal with disruptive colleagues and much, much more.
  • Build your personal burnout prevention strategy and become a mentor and role model to your people. So often physician leaders actually model burnout for their people - exhausted, overwhelmed and distracted. Don't let this happen to you. 
  • Learn simple methods to build a culture of trust and engagement on your teams - even with your busy schedule. The fundamental currency of leadership is TRUST. Learn how to build trust with your people in every conversation.
  • Stop having to do all the work yourself -- learn how to get your people on board and pulling their weight right from the start of your projects - without having to order them around
  • Learn a burnout prevention strategy for your whole organization - just four parts, lead by a single committee - to install the Quadruple Aim in your culture.
  • We will also build an ongoing support community of like-minded leaders so you will never feel like you are alone in the trenches again. We will have a weekly group coaching phone calls and a private FaceBook page for a full three months following the retreat. You will be able to post questions and request support 7 days a week and our entire group will pile in to help out. 


Here's another of our 2017 Retreat Participants

“An intimate, honest, open, supportive group interaction. The size was great.”
“I am amazed how the tools lead me to start really looking at particular reasons I feel burned out.”
“The food and hotel were phenomenal. Perfect venue.”
“I have used many of the tools I learned and incorporated them into our live orientation sessions and have gotten great feedback.”

Our Retreat Venue is the world-famous Edgewater Hotel 


This is the ultra-hip, waterfront landmark in Seattle, Washington where the Beatles fished out one window and Led Zeppelin threw a couch out another. Our training room sits right on Elliot Bay with a view of the ocean and the Olympic mountains. This is the only waterfront hotel in downtown Seattle. 

The hotel is literally on the water - it is built on a pier - the food is outrageously delicious, you can watch the ferries glide by from your room 24/7 and we have a 40% discount on room rates for retreat participants. 

  • Your days will start with AM meditation and gentle stretching.
  • Mornings are filled with interactive training sessions.
  • Breakfast, AM snacks and Lunch are included in your retreat investment and are sure to provide world class networking for everyone involved.

In the afternoon we will be finished by three with plenty of time for case presentations and Q& A ...
...  and the rest of the day and evening is free for you to explore
all the riches of the Seattle area ... many of them are within walking distance of our hotel including Pike Place Market and the Flying Fish, the Space Needle, Paul Allens' Experience Music Project (EMP) and so much more. 

We strongly encourage you to take a few extra days - especially after the retreat - and turn this into a world-class getaway. The Olympic and Cascade mountains and Victoria and Vancouver, British Columbia are all very close by.

The Retreat is Certified for 12 Hours of CME Credit.



This unique retreat experience is for you if ...

~ You want a break from taking care of everyone else and some time to focus 100% on you – relaxing, recharging your batteries, taking a good look at your practice, your leadership role and your life from a different perspective — and getting crystal clear on what you really want going forward

~ You want to build a more balanced life – so you are not always at the mercy of your career, your practice and your patients

~ You want to stop working so hard - learn how to spend your time in the office actually seeing patients — and leading your teams - rather than being constantly hassled by your EMR, worthless meetings and the dozens other clerical tasks that end up on your desk

~ You want to take your career back - to make it yours, rather than be told what you can and cannot do. It is time to stop trying to fit into "the way we do things around here" and build your Ideal Practice.

~ You may be surprised to realize your leadership academy year or even your MBA didn't teach you what you really needed to be an effective leader. You are desperate for some simple skills that will get your teams engaged and participating from the start, allow you to cut your meetings in half, make all of them much more effective, help you delegate effectively, give meaningful feedback and deal with disruptive colleagues. 

~ You realize you have been living Einstein’s definition of insanity and want a way out. You know how crazy it feels to  …”Do the same things over and over and expect a different result” but have not been able to find a way out on your own

~ You could really use a world class vacation to one of the most beautiful places on earth 

~ You are tired of trying to figure this out all by yourself. Tired of feeling like this is a battle between you and the whole world and you are sandwiched between your colleagues below and leadership above with no way to find shelter. You would like support to make these changes from an experienced coach and an group of like- minded physicians



 The Quadruple Aim Physician Leadership Retreat is an entire system for TRANSFORMATION.

- You will step outside your normal life for four days skill building and building a detailed action plan for real and lasting change. Four days of our highest level of personal support, training, action planning and mastermind sessions.

- You will learn proven methods to carve out more quality time for your people, yourself and your family. Tools we have tested - and proven to be effective - in the real lives of hundreds of modern physicians in all specialties. 

- You will learn ways to get your work done and get home sooner - without working harder. More field-tested tools to use your team more effectively and become the eye of the storm in your practice day.

- All this will take place in one of the most beautiful settings on earth ... Seattle and the Pacific Northwest in May.  Our setting offers you the opportunity for a world class vacation filled with yoga, meditation and many unique experiences. Within walking distance of our hotel is the Pike Place Market, Space Needle, Seattle Aquarium and Victoria, BC, the Cascade and Olympic Mountains and so much more are only minutes away.
