Corporate Retreats

Corporate retreats are a wonderful way to strengthen your team’s comradery, regroup, and harmonize and energize your company for upcoming projects. SOHL can speak at your next corporate retreat or event for ½ day, full day, or weekend/week-long programs. Based on your goals for the retreat, the SOHL team will work with you to create training and talks that fit your needs. Mindfulness, meditation, burnout prevention, and finding your life purpose are just a few of the topics that we can bring to your team. SOHL’s approach is inclusive, inspiring, and educational. The trainings are participatory and attendee’s walk away with several new tools for improving their performance in their work and personal lives.

84% of healthcare leaders believe their self-care impacts employees. 50% believe it impacts patients.

CEO, Health System, Senior Executive Wellness & Self-Care Study Participant

Bernie Klein

MD, CEO, Providence Holy Cross Medical Center

“The self-care training was a unique experience and I found the 7 sources of health to be useful. I will use SOHL’s assessment often to guide and improve my self-care. My self-care scores improved from the beginning to the end of the training, in just a short time. My leadership team found the information informative and useful. They were appreciative of the time spent to learn about self-care including practicing some very useful tools”

Jeremy Ensey

CEO, St. Luke Medical Center, Marion, Kansas

“Spending the morning with Ruthann and her team, my staff learned important self-care strategies as well as evidence-based diet recommendations. Ruthann was engaging, efficient and effective at providing tools that we could immediately put in place to strengthen our 7 sources of health. If you are looking to improve your own health or that of your company, I highly suggest partnering with Ruthann and her team.”

Christine Sostarecz

Human Resources, Intel Corporation

“There were a few surprising results from Ruthann’s training. First, our employees actually attended and kept returning each week to learn more self-care skills. Second, 90% say they would recommend the training to a co-worker and 95% say they will take better care of themselves as a result of the training. Finally, I believe learning these self-care skills is sustainable and worth the investment.”

Jennifer Sellitti

JD, Director of Training and Communications, NJ Office of the Public Defender

“Our attorneys, both new and very experienced, benefited from the SOHL training. The unique combination of continuous self-assessment with self-care practices produced positive results on the spot that our staff will continue to benefit from.”

Joyce Brocaglia

CEO, Alta Associates, and Founder, Executive Women’s Forum

“Both Ruthann’s keynote and self-care training were very well received by the Executive Women’s Forum members. She is a caring, engaging speaker who shares her extensive experience and expertise in an unassuming and approachable manner. She took a creative approach to keynoting by weaving exercises to help us find and validate our life purpose throughout the delivery of her content. She taught easy-to-remember practices, coupled with an effective tool for self-assessment, which provided us with an enjoyable process to improve our self-care for years to come.”

Jessie Kaye

CEO & President, Prairie View Psychiatric and Rehabilitation System

“Our leadership team appreciated Ruthann’s authentic and approachable manner for sharing information. She engaged our group from the very beginning of her presentation. We especially appreciated the opportunity to learn skills that we can practice personally, as well as share with our clients. Ruthann’s system for continuously assessing our self-care was helpful and will be a great tool for our leaders. Although we only scheduled a 2-hour training session, the content was so helpful that we wished we had asked for a whole day.”

Lori Knutson

Corporate Director, Integrative Health & Medicine, Hackensack Meridian Health

“Ruthann worked with my team and I to develop a vision for our system to improve the health of our community using integrative medicine and self-care techniques. Her expertise in and ability to articulate the evidence supporting these techniques is reflected in her polished presentations. From training to strategy, I highly recommend Ruthann and her abilities to effectively train and transform leaders, clinicians, and patients using sustainable self-care practices.”
