Dr. Thomas D. Zweifel is a strategy & performance expert, board member & sparring partner for CEOs & leaders of Fortune 500 companies. Since 1984, he has coached clients on 4 continents to open strategic frontiers and meet business imperatives. 

On average his clients have realized 40X ROI in management results from working with Thomas. An authority on integrating planning, people and performance, he helps clients ask the right questions, confront taboos, build strategy alignment, and boost productivity. Ultimately his specialty is unleashing the human spirit in organizations—without unnecessary blah-blah, impractical training programs, or false dependencies on high-priced consultants.

Topics covered in this episode:

  • Why a lack of confidence is necessary to be a good coach
  • Why a coach has to be a “learner”, not a leader or expert
  • Asking the right questions
  • Eliciting commitment – of the coach and the client
  • Choosing three keywords to guide you
  • The 4-step process of coaching:  
    1) self-awareness 
    2) relationship 
    3) vision strategy 
    4) action
  • Daily rituals to keep yourself accountable
  • Identifying Breakdowns
  • Communication and the illusion that communication equals accomplishment.
