   $audioFilePath,
    array('enableWordTimeOffsets'=>true,'model'=>'video')
); 
echo $operation->name(); //operation name

You can get the results by using Operation Name.
$operationName='194790781308823479';
$speech = new SpeechClient([
    'languageCode' => 'en-US'
]);
$operation = $speech->operation($operationName);

$isComplete = $operation->isComplete();
if($isComplete){
$results=$operation->results();
