The Boston Public Library welcomes physician, communication expert, and author Dr. Neha Sangwan for an online conversation moderated by BPL President David Leonard. This program, presented in partnership with Kirstein Business Library and Innovation Center and the GBH Forum Network and sponsored by the Friends of Kirstein, is part of the BPL's Repairing America Series.
As the institutions, norms, and rules that once held the fabric of our society together dissolve, the businesses that will thrive now are the ones that adjust most quickly to our new reality. One of the biggest predictors of success will be the quality of leadership in your organization, which may be examined by asking the following questions: have you invested in building trust within and across your teams, how comfortable are you and your teams at navigating strong emotions—in yourselves and with others, and how quickly can your teams pivot and innovate to meet the needs of our ever-changing world? Together, let’s identify your body’s earliest signals, the ways you might override them, and how to navigate and express strong emotions to build trust and innovate quickly. Join Neha Sangwan, MD, to learn how to upgrade your and your team’s human software to not only meet the challenges of our complex world, but also to excel under pressure!
Dr. Sangwan works with innovative companies such as Apple, Google and American Express and also partners with healthcare institutions and universities such as Kaiser Permanente, Harvard’s Brigham & Women’s Hospital, Stanford University, and the University of Michigan. She has pioneered programs that measurably improve metrics related to culture transformation, employee engagement, productivity, provider-patient communication, and client satisfaction. She has shared her learnings on multiple TEDx stages and also as the author of Talk Rx: Five Steps to Honest Conversations that Create Connection, Health and Happiness. Dr. Sangwan’s common sense yet transformative approaches have won praise from bestselling thought leaders ranging from Dr. Wayne Dyer to Mark Hyman, MD, and have influenced the lives of audiences around the world.
