Leaders of the kNEW School: The Power of Listening

Our new podcast series focused on leading female physicians bringing feminine qualities to medicine continues this weekend with Dr. Tami Meraglia. "Dr Tami MD" rose to fame last year with her best selling book "The Hormone Secret" and lectures across the world on hormones, health and even bio-hacking.

What you will learn in this podcast:

  • The key skills practitioners have to learn to be great listeners
  • The best types of questions to ask for real engagement
  • How technology empowers her membership practice
