Fritjof Capra, Ph.D.

Scientist, educator, activist, and author of many international bestsellers

Fritjof Capra, Ph.D.

Fritjof Capra, Ph.D., is a scientist, educator, activist, and author of many international bestsellers that connect conceptual changes in science with broader changes in worldview and values in society. A Vienna-born physicist and systems theorist, Capra first became popularly known for his book, The Tao of Physics, which explored the ways in which modern physics was changing our worldview from a mechanistic to a holistic and ecological one. Published in 1975, it is still in print in more than 40 editions worldwide.

Over the past 30 years, Capra has been engaged in a systematic exploration of how other sciences and society are ushering in a similar shift in worldview, or paradigms, leading to a new vision of reality and a new understanding of the social implications of this cultural transformation.

His most recent book, The Systems View of Life (Cambridge University Press, 2014), presents a grand new synthesis of this work—integrating the biological, cognitive, social, and ecological dimensions of life into one unified vision. Several critics have suggested that The Systems View of Life, which Capra coauthored with Pier Luigi Luisi, Professor of Biology at the University of Rome, is destined to become another classic. Capra Course is based on The Systems View of Life.  Read more about Systemic Thinking as business, organizational and leadership tool - Capra Course here.

Dr. Thomas Zweifel

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.

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)."
