POSITIVE INTELLIGENCE AND LIFE COACHING FOR INDIVIDUALS
Rick Weil, Project Manager and Sr. Software Engineer
During COVID and my ensuing isolation, I had become quite distracted in my life. I felt disconnected, distant from my inner myself, from who I was, from who I wanted to be. It was at this point I decided to take the Positive Intelligence program to see if I could benefit from some course correction.
The PQ program is quite simple. It reminded me of who I really was at the core, and how I could access that inner self. There was great theoretical development on a framework for identifying and neutralizing the things that I use to tear myself down, and provided exercises to reinforce the good. But very importantly, the program helps put this theory into practice. This all is much more difficult than it might seem.
The best phone app in the world is not going to figure out your life and solve your problems. This is something you (and only you) will have to do yourself. It is very personal work. I wasn't exactly sure how I was going to start. I wasn't sure I was on the right path. And this is where Nirav helped me. Of course, I knew he wasn't going to solve my problems. But his very intense listening skills and focused questioning helped draw out from me answers to questions I had of myself, and helped provide a new context / framework that I could use going forward. He helped me access a new perspective tailored exactly to me. This is the value of a personal coach. This is where Nirav excels.
I can highly recommend this course. And Nirav as your personal guide.

I believe that mental fitness is key to our overall well being, happiness and performance and that is what this program is all about! It has powerful content and strategies that help you become more aware of your own day to day saboteurs and how to silent them. I enjoyed the simple yet powerful insights and tools for my journey of self exploration! Above all, the program helped me realize the importance of thought awareness and how it all can be trained with just some very simple daily exercises!
My coach, Nirav is excellent- very personable, cares genuinely and listens patiently to help guide in the right direction!! He has this “special gift” to “connect” with people!!
Highly highly recommended for anyone looking to take charge!!

My personal experience with Nirav’s life coaching was nothing short of incredible! Nirav is an exceptional coach and true friend that listened intently and provided insightful and compassionate guidance on how best to unleash my true potential. Nirav has a fresh way of looking at circumstances to see the best in them, and the best in you; his positivity is infectious! Months after completing the program, I continue to witness the profound positive impact of Nirav’s guidance every day! I am more focused, happy, and purposeful in everything that I do and have grown SO much as a person thanks to the program. My life vision that Nirav helped uncover is absolutely invaluable to me and is something that I will carry forward through my entire life. Truly a life changing and life affirming experience and would highly recommend it to anyone!!
Chris Olig, Medical Device Leader
The current struggles associated with our dramatic cultural wars, never ending bombardment with selected “news” content and divisions being developed over all of the above, have created an environment in which our survival, defensive and aggressive personalities can take charge of our thoughts and behaviors. I certainly fell into that category and found it difficult to bring a positive, energetic attitude to my relationships; all of them!
Positive Intelligence has been a true help in identifying my negative thoughts (Saboteurs) and attitude, labeling it as just that and then providing the skills to overcome that first reaction and instead allow your positive self (Sage) to emerge. I was able to align the mental building aspects with my personal influences from the Gospels, which only solidified my effort to learn how to take the steering wheel away from the “Judge” and put him back in his rightful place, which is the back seat, way in the back!
Mynah Dhingra, High School Student
I began the PQ program not knowing what to expect. To be honest, I thought it would be a waste of my time with no long-term results. Turns out, I was very wrong. This program not only taught me about encompassing a positive mindset in my day-to-day life, but it also taught me about myself. I learned about my personal saboteurs and how they affected me in the seemingly smallest of ways. Coach Nirav helped me with my own journey to becoming my true self (Sage) and seeing the Sage in others as well! This program was enlightening and Coach Nirav was truly an amazing coach through it all!

The Positive Intelligence program builds self-awareness & creates a path for positive change. It is a new & interesting twist on mindfulness. I have so much respect for Nirav and his coaching ability. Two words come to mind when I think of Nirav; integrity and compassion. Thank you!

My husband and I had an amazing lifestyle transforming experience with Nirav’s Positive Intelligence course. Not only was Nirav patient and gracious with his coaching , we never felt pressured or pushed to do something we weren’t ready for. Nirav is an incredible coach who guided us by asking subtle questions to help us find the correct path that would work for us. He explained everything very patiently. He made us feel very comfortable, and that helped us be able to use his subtle suggestions actively in and outside of class. Both my husband and I find ourselves feeling calmer during tough moments, and overall peaceful during our day to day. We would recommend this class to all, whether you have or have not taken a similar one before. Beginners and experienced participants of all ages have something to gain from Nirav’s course. Highly recommended!

I highly recommend Nirav as a personal coach and advisor for individuals looking to explore new chapters in their life, expand the happiness and joy they desire, accelerate personal and professional relationships and maximize their potential through the peaks and valleys life throws at you. He leverages years of experience in the business world to fully understand the challenges and stressors people feel while navigating aspects of work life balance. He is a certified coach in life planning, positive intelligence and meditation. Nirav masterfully uses these and other tools to help individuals successfully navigate through their individual journey. Finally, Nirav is one of the most positive people you will find; firmly believing that everything you experience in life is a gift and opportunity. His passion and positive disposition is infectious and energizing.

The Positive Intelligence course was a great way to take the time and understand how much mental fitness and mindfulness matters. Nirav was fantastic at encouraging me to stick with it and how to best apply it to my professional and personal life.
Bala ThanupillaI, Program Management Consultant
I have known Nirav for over 15 years, both professionally and personally. Nirav is one of the very few people that I know, who always has an upbeat positivity around him. I am sure he has had his bad days like all of us, but he is always cheerful and ready to listen. He is easy to talk to since there is a genuineness about him that has in many situations, helped me. By having held various Senior Management positions in different companies, Nirav understands the Corporate way of life and the integral stress that comes with it. This makes it easier to have a conversation with him as he can easily relate to the context.
Nirav has helped me by being a sounding board and integrate new ways of thinking by adding an objective perspective to my problem. He necessarily does not provide solutions but listens and provides tips/suggestions on how I can go about thinking positively through my situation. Nirav’s spiritual energy is evident in his interactions with people. Spiritual health is achieved when you feel at peace with life and Nirav is one of those people who is always able to find hope and comfort in the hardest of times. Nirav has taken a bold move in his career in following his passion - From going up the corporate ladder, to providing life coaching… which I strongly believe he is very good at!
STRATEGIC PLANNING FOR BUSINESSES
Julie Manworren, President and CEO, Living Well Disability Services
Nirav demonstrates many skills that elicit break through approaches to entrenched problems. I've had the privilege of working on two different strategic planning processes that Nirav facilitated. He is able to synthesize information and facts and bring meaning to the surface. One of our senior leaders noted that Nirav has a unique capacity to integrate his left and right brain activity. I agree and his ability to do this benefits strategy. The environment for disability services is challenging. Living Well Disability Services is better positioned for our future as a result of working with Nirav Sheth.
Anish Shah, President, QC Training Services, Inc.
Nirav's passion for Business Strategy was very evident in his skilled effort to generate a Strategic Plan for QC Training Services for 2018. His mindfulness as well his questioning process to gather the necessary facts to formulate the plan shows his deep knowledge of the methodical approach to business strategy. I believe that implementing this plan will take QC Training Services to the next level of success. Thank you Nirav.
Warren Watson, Chairman of the Board, Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare
I have known Nirav for more than a decade in our work together at Medtronic. I watched Nirav emerge from a terrific technical contributor into an energetic, effective and caring leader. Nirav is driven to find real solutions to real problems, determine a customer-centric guiding strategy and then execute to make it real. In my experience there are usually "dreamers" and "doers" but finding someone who can both "dream" and "do" is highly unusual. Nirav can both "dream" and "do"! Nirav is a leader whose internal compass knows where "true north" can be found and he uses his inner compass to guide his leadership work in all corners of his life. I have personally been blessed to know Nirav as an amazing leader and as an equally amazing human being.
Lonny Stormo, CEO, POPS! Diabetes Care
Nirav has a fantastic blend of strategic, leadership, and execution skills. I utilized Nirav's passion and skill for strategy multiple times in asking him to facilitate strategic planning for our business, which he did very successfully. Nirav also exhibits strong leadership in all that he does. I love and respect his servant leadership belief and practice. Nirav is one of those rare people who blend the big picture well with getting things done. While working with me, he led cross functional teams to successfully develop products and bring them to market.
