Coaching has become a $500+ billion industry. It used to be about therapy or training, but now the profession has changed dramatically. Coaching is now the essential skillset for making companies grow, developing leaders, boosting performance and productivity. Not to speak of self-leadership, sense-making, improving relationships, and leading a life you love.
88% of managers (roughly 9 out of 10) who use a coach consider their coaching invaluable. 89% of people (again 9 out of 10) who don’t have a coach wish they had one. Demand for coaching will increase by a whopping 39% over the next decade.
“Coaching is no longer a service to buy or delegate, but a basic management competence—just like finance or marketing. Every leader or manager must be a competent coach. Dr. Zweifel gives you a systematic toolkit for getting the best out of your people.”
—Marshall Goldsmith, Thinkers50 #1 Leadership Thinker in the World

Dr. Zweifel learned coaching in the 1980s when the profession barely existed outside of sports. He has poured 35+ years of experience—as CEO, then as strategy & performance expert, CEO/CXO coach and board member—into this path-breaking book. The Coaching-In-Action methodology is based on both timeless principles of leadership and the latest research in neuroscience, psycholinguistics and behavioral economics.
• The 5 steps from neuro-linguistic research to power and impact through people.
• When to wear the “coach hat” and when the “management hat.”
• The 6 steps to build trust, demand for coaching and clients.
• How to see and catch coaching opportunities (without which coaching will fail).
• The 7 coaching questions based on behavioral economics that position you as guru—and kill time wasters. And
• The exit strategy: How to free yourself and make the intervention sustainable.
“A punchy book that strips executive coaching back to the essentials. Here’s what to do, and what not to do, to be effective.”
—Michael Bungay Stanier, author of WSJ-bestseller The Coaching Habit
Zweifel used this system to secure his own financial freedom, work smarter and accomplish more, with more people. His clients used it to produce, in the aggregate, over $9 billion in added annual revenues—while boosting innovation and building coaching cultures.
“If you lead anything, use this book to lead your teams to sustainable, and meaningful, high performance.”
—Dr. Daniel Vasella, former Chairman & CEO, Novartis
Is your team too dependent on you? Are you caught in micro-management or saving the day? Is your bench strength lacking, are team members not entrepreneurial enough? Do you sometimes feel it’s all too much and you won’t stem it all?
