Over the past year, Nirav’s positive attitude, coaching expertise, and past experience as a business leader managing a large team have been instrumental in my professional growth. Through the Sage Leadership Program that incorporates a revolutionary new app into the coaching process, Nirav not only provided invaluable insights but also a practical framework and tools to enhance my personal and professional leadership. Personally, it has helped me be calmer, reduce stress and improve focus. As a leader, I have had significant growth in areas such as communication, collaboration and conflict management. I highly recommend Nirav and the Sage Leadership Program from Stratosphere for leaders who want to take their leadership skills to the next level.

I highly recommend Nirav as a coach. Not only was he an important weekly presence during an intense job transition, but he also showed me how to change my life through Positive Intelligence (PQ). Through daily, engaging app-based activities, along with discussion with Nirav, I was able to identify my own saboteurs and learn how to build positive muscles that I can strengthen every day.

I had the opportunity to leverage Nirav's terrific skills in coaching during a challenging time in my life. Nirav has a gift of learning agility to know when to go deep and when to pull back. He is thoughtful and intentional in his approach, using the art of questioning to enable you to reach deep inside for the answers. Nirav listens with intent and creates a very safe, transparent and caring environment. The work we did together on positive intelligence enabled me to take my self awareness to new levels. I now have clear and actionable tools to ensure I am truly strengthening my ability to leverage every situation as a gift and opportunity. I have no doubt of the positive impact this will have in my life going forward both professionally and personally.
Arun Batchu, Vice President and Analyst, Gartner
Nirav and his Positive Intelligence (PQ) coaching has had an extraordinary effect on my professional and personal life. In short but intense six weeks of training and practice, I am able to take better command of myself in stressful situations, keep my Saboteurs at bay, and invoke my Sage to convert any situation into an opportunity. The effect on my professional performance and personal life is remarkable. Professionally, I am able to increase the quality and throughput of not only my Individual performance but also of the teams that I belong to. Personally, I have become less judgmental of my family, invoking my Sage more often than before the program. Practicing the mental gym routines every day is difficult, and necessary. When I am on top of PQ repetitions (reps)... I do well; when I don't my saboteurs have a field day. I am hooked on to the program, and I continue practicing every day. Now that I know the program works, I am digging deep into the scientific basis, that the program is founded on. The mobile app that Nirav uses to deliver content and practice sessions from Shirzad Chamine is world-class, with a level of efficacy that I have rarely seen in similar apps. Nirav is empathetic, yet holds me accountable. During my tough days, he is there to encourage me on. During my Sage days, he celebrates my accomplishments. His own mental fitness models the message of PQ, and thus I find myself opening up and accepting his coaching more readily than I anticipated. I highly recommend Nirav to anybody who wants to raise their professional performance and improve their personal life.
Chemu Langat, COO, Best Buy Health
After self-reflection over the December 2021 holidays, my 2022 focus was on improved mental fitness. There is so much that burdens us internally and from the world around us, and the ability to stay positive through it all was what I sought. Carrying out daily Positive Intelligence (PQ) exercises has helped me immensely manage day-to-day challenges and quiet the inner chatter of the saboteurs. It is astonishing how much damage your saboteurs can have in the form of anxiety, anger, frustration and self-doubt. I am less prone to stress; have clarity of thought and I find that I am able center myself more quickly amidst conflict.
Under Nirav’s coaching through the Sage Leadership program as an add-on, I have discovered my Sage- the deeper and wiser me. And as I have picked up more leadership responsibility over the last few months, I find myself relying on the sage powers of empathy, explore, navigate, innovate and activate as simple secret weapons. They are a calm guide through change, conflict, and new challenges, helping me reveal my inner strength and resilience. I do wish I had discovered this approach earlier in my career, but it’s timing this year is surely a gift!
Gauri Bhalakia, President, ARCpoint Labs
I highly recommend Nirav as a leadership and life coach. In our 6-week intense PQ positive intelligence training and practice sessions, I learnt the effect of saboteurs on my leadership style. Nirav through one-to-one sessions was able to help identify saboteur thinking and through his excellent guidance helped me re-wire and invoke a more positive sage perspective. The Positive Intelligence program through its focus on mental fitness offers concrete tools, processes and plans of action to enable successful growth, change and resilience. I highly recommend Nirav and the Positive Intelligence program.
Jamee Lynn Smith, Communication Director, Flex
I found Nirav and Stratosphere, LLC as I was preparing to begin a new role with a new company. In this new venture I wanted more - more capacity for work and myself. By working with Nirav, practicing my PQ reps and identifying my inner Sage, I unleashed much more than I thought possible. In a world in which the speed of change continues to multiply, I find myself more grounded, more focused and more capable than ever before. I'm incredibly grateful to Nirav, to my pod partner and myself for making an investment in this life-changing program.
