SOHL Leadership Series:

Sustainable Self-Care Assessment

"I take care of myself because I set an example for everyone in our organization. I am also a physician that thinks it is important that I live by the standards I want patients to use to be healthy."

CEO, Academic Medical Center, Senior Executive Wellness & Self-Care Study Participant

Health and Wellness Begin At The Top

SOHL’S comprehensive leadership assessment results in a system-wide analysis of senior executives’ self-care and wellness practices. Driven by the SHEWS (Senior Healthcare Executive Wellness and Self-care) Research Study results, this evaluation will improve your organization’s overall health. The SSCA is the first step in gaining the wellness edge in your field. Take the leap into the future of healthcare!

SOHL’s SSCA Will Help Your Organization:

  • Assess the risk of individual and system-wide burnout.
  • Gain access to expert, customized, individual and organization-wide recommendations for sustainable self-care (SSC) for the whole person.
  • Prepare leadership and the organization for a system-wide SSC initiative.

How It Is Conducted:

  • SOHL experts meet with your organization’s leadership team, conduct interviews, and provide online assessments and identify common themes.
  • Based on our findings, we generate system-wide leadership self-care assessment results for your organization and design a customized self-care intervention and effective delivery plan. 
  • Following the intervention, leaders re-take the assessment and our team meets with each executive again.  Our team delivers an anonymous, confidential report of recommendations and training for each individual. 
  • The SOHL team creates and delivers a final report and training curriculum for all levels of your organization.  We deliver training and assessment for the key self-care skills that are most valuable for your organization. 
  • The mini-retreat option:  Enjoy a half day of fabulous food, self-care practices, and delving into the culture, values, vision, mission, value-based contracting and overall ROI of wellness analysis for your organization.

The Outcome:

  • Improved leadership and organizational health
  • Enhanced engagement in work and life
  • Decreased healthcare costs

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.”
