“The answer to the common complaint ‘My doctor never has time to talk to me.’ I loved reading these down-to-earth conversations with a brilliant medical doctor who has taken the time to give straightforward answers to so many common communication and health-related concerns. Priceless information from a medical doctor who is the real deal.”
“Doctor Neha shows us how physical intelligence can lead to transformative conversations that can impact the trajectory of our lives. She teaches us how to make every interaction count to enhance our effectiveness as leaders and, perhaps more importantly, our relationship with family and friends. Best of all, we can improve both our emotional and our physical health.”
“Working not only with physical health, but also with the ways in which emotions and relationships impact stress, wellness and performance, Doctor Neha combines the compassionate wisdom of a physician with the skills of a masterful communicator. In this way, she commands the secrets of verbal aikido: knowing how to craft conversations that are purpose-driven. I’ve watched her teach people—from individuals to large teams—how good communication directly ties in to health. Those of us who have had the chance to learn from her consider ourselves very, very lucky.”
“Dr. Neha Sangwan’s work linking communication and health is at the forefront of an emerging area of care. Her ideas break through the clutter and difficulties of human communication like a breath of fresh air. Using simple, practical tools, she teaches you how to open dialogue, develop understanding and authentically connect with others. Whether you are an individual or organization, working with Doctor Neha will empower you to function better in all areas of your life.”
“Dr. Sangwan’s coaching has given me an enormous advantage as a leader. As CEO of an early stage tech company, my natural environment is one of stress, punishing schedules and lots of fast-paced communication with my team and cross functional partners. I can now better navigate challenging situations in a way that reduces my stress, provides clarity of thought and promotes trusting, transparent collaboration with others.”
“Doctor Neha is as gifted a communicator, as she is a clinician. She has done exemplary groundbreaking work in helping doctors, nurses and hospital staff around the world to open their hearts and minds to one another. She empowers them in their own self-care, using mind-body medicine techniques and practical communication tools.”
“Working with Doctor Neha over the past 4-5 years has changed my experience in the world—I feel an awakening that I did not previously have. Doctor Neha offers solid tools and information on how to communicate in a more effective way, both professionally and personally. I now have more love, gratitude, empathy and overall self-awareness. Thank you, Doctor Neha!”
“Doctor Neha has helped me work more effectively with others, especially in situations where there are strong differing opinions. Her experiential approach to communication has markedly reduced my stress levels. This is a profound and visionary approach to health and wellness.”
“Doctor Neha has been an inspiration and advisor to our business. At a personal level, she helped my husband recognize the physiological and psychological signs of stress, enabling him to reduce his symptoms. Doctor Neha is a new breed of doctors, one who focuses on the alignment and healing of the body, mind and heart.”
“For the majority of my medical career, the proverbial stethoscope was always turned toward the patient. Rarely, as health care providers, do we turn our attention to our own well-being. Putting Doctor Neha’s communication principles to practice has allowed me to create healthier relationships both at work and at home.”
“Doctor Neha’s potent, yet subtle, ingredient that makes her special blend of care unique is her deep understanding of the human condition—both its simplicity and complexity. Her ability to sublimate the complicated and unearth the gems of our psyche transcends “modern medicine” and reinvents the very definition of what health is and our relationship with ourselves. If you listen carefully, you will hear yourself. Ask Doctor Neha.”
“I have had the privilege to have known Doctor Neha for over a decade. I have seen her evolve from an esteemed colleague to an amazing coach. I have had the opportunity to interact with her both in professional team building settings as well as one on one. The tools she provides to help deal with life issues are invaluable and unforgettable. Thanks Neha!”
“After participating in Dr. Sangwan’s workshop, I connect better with people around me, whether friends and family or colleagues at my workplace. Overall, I’ve become more accountable for my choices, and that translates to being a better communicator, more emotionally intelligent and, ultimately, a stronger leader.”
