Dr. Thomas Zweifel is a business and leadership strategist for the 21st century. Leadership is in crisis. In this age of collapsing financial institutions and government bailouts, outsourcing and a border-less economy, virtual teams and free agents, the rules have changed. What does it mean to be a leader in the 21st century?
Since 1984, Thomas has been privileged to work with leaders from Nelson Mandela to Haitian slum dwellers, from CEOs to military officers, helping them produce breakthrough results.
His portfolio lists clients like: Fortune 500 companies (Avon, Banana Republic, Citibank, ConocoPhillips, Credit Suisse, DHL, Fiat, General Motors, Goldman Sachs, Google, Johnson & Johnson, JP Morgan Chase, Kazakhstan government, Medtronic, Nestlé, Novartis, Procter & Gamble, Roche/Genentech, Sanofi-Aventis, Siemens, UBS, Unilever), UN Development Program, and US State Department.
Thomas has been featured on ABC (on Microsoft in China), CNNfn (on communication; coaching on salary negotiation and job searches), Bloomberg TV and Radio (on DaimlerChrysler merger and Nissan-Japan), Radio BFM, NY1 (on culture clash), Financial Times (on coaching and mentoring), Basler Zeitung (on communication) and he is a sought after global speaker.
In his own words: "I made so many mistakes that I can now coach clients to avoid them. My failures and successes allowed me to develop a methodology that builds adaptive leaders systematically and predictably--and that maximizes your Return on People (ROP)."
