CEO, author and leadership professor Thomas D. Zweifel says that soft skills (co-leadership, communication, cross-cultural management) are the key to hard results. Dr. Zweifel’s stories and tools give people access to being global leaders in the 21st century. He inspires audiences with a unique blend of cutting-edge leadership theory, international affairs, management tools, executive coaching, and timeless philosophy—an interdisciplinary approach sorely missing in this era of specialists who don’t connect the dots.

For 25 years, Dr. Zweifel has developed leadership tools and methodologies for Fortune 500 companies and SME's, governments and international organizations, nonprofits and the military. His clients include Aventis, Banana Republic, Bank Leumi, Citibank, ConocoPhillips, Credit Suisse, DHL, Goldman Sachs, GE, Johnson & Johnson, Novartis, UBS, the UN Development Programme, the US Military Academy at West Point, and the US State Department.

Dr. Zweifel shows leaders how to:

  1. Maximize ownership of strategy and minimize pushback to change

  2. Get results through effective communication--speaking and listening

  3. Avoid costly culture clashes and manage skillfully across cultures

  4. Unleash people power for performance

  5. Turn breakdowns into breakthroughs

“You did a beautiful job and are an engaging speaker!”
