I invite you to join a select group of only 40 like-minded physician leaders in Seattle in the spring of 2019 - to learn proven tools and share success stories - and bring home better ways to care for yourself and your people.
We Teach the Three Critical Skill Levels to be an Effective Physician Wellness Champion
- Take Better Care of Your People & Yourself
- Build a Culture of Support, Trust and Engagement on Your Teams
- Hard Wire Wellness into Your Entire Organization
In the last two years we have graduated 109 Physician Wellness Champions from this retreat where we teach a full library of skills learned from our comprehensive experience preventing physician burnout:
-- Over 2300 hours of one on one physician coaching experience
-- Training over 30,000 doctors to recognize and prevent burnout
-- Working with over 163 healthcare organizations, associations and societies
-- On three continents to date
“This was HUGE!! Managing how I will interact with those upstream and downstream to make an impact on wellness. Makes me feel excited to have new skills / tools to use.”
“Gives me the tools to start our own burnout committee and implement strategies at our workplace. Also a lot of insight into myself.”
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.
You are probably stuck in the vise of the Big Squeeze too:
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 over 30,000 physicians for 163 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.
Now you can join us in Seattle to learn & practice these proven tools and begin to lead with the power of the Quadruple Aim.
“Dike is the most honest person/expert I know dedicated to resolving physician burnout. His approach is abundantly pragmatic, deeply motivational and he has built a system that anyone can understand.”
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.
- Personal tools to prevent your own burnout
- Leadership tools to support your direct reports and teams
- A four-part strategy to hard wire the Quadruple Aim into your entire organization.
Here's another of our Retreat Participants
“The connections with other physician leaders is invaluable! The tools are broken down into bite sized actions that make success with utilization extremely likely.
The concept of starting with myself and building on that is critical to me being an effective leader and a change agent in my organization. I am excited that my investment in this retreat will benefit my partners and staff.”
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 significant discount on room rates for retreat participants.
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 13 Hours of CME Credit.
~ 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
