About David Zeitler
David Zeitler has been helping people to transform their lives for two decades.
His path began in Neuroscience, continued with cutting edge research in Adult Developmental Psychology, and culminated in Leadership Development. David integrates these in his current work.
David began his path as a psychotherapist, working with “dual-diagnosis” populations in locked psychiatric wards. For ten years David worked directly with renowned philosophers and cutting edge thinkers to build and run the Integral Psychotherapy Center.
It was during this time that David began a two-year retreat in the Shaolin Ch’an Buddhist Order. As a “lay-monk” David lived a cloistered life of practice. He earned high rankings as both a tai-chi and kung-fu practitioner.
In 2010, David was part of the first cohort in Robert Kegan & Lisa Lahey’s professional coach training program. Based on decades of empirical research at Harvard, the Immunity to Change coaching method was created to accelerate the natural process of developing from one stage to the next. Because the Immunity to Change coaching program is based on the psychometrics used to assess adult development, it can be used in the hands of a skilled practitioner to identify an adult’s level of development and to help them generate their next level skills and behaviors.
From 2011 to 2018 David served as faculty in Kegan & Lahey’s coach training program; from 2013 to 2018 he served as Director of Coaching for their firm Minds at Work. Currently, David works with alternative investment firms and law firms in the United States, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region.
