He began research on helping and coaching in 1967, and began coaching executives in 1969. About thirty years ago, he launched a series of longitudinal studies on coaching, followed by three fMRI and two hormonal studies of coaching processes that are more effective in helping people be open to change than typical approaches.

Based on his work which was begun in 1970 as one of the founders of the competency movement in HR, he has launched several landmark research on the competencies of coaches that predict client change. He is the author of more than 200 scholarly articles and 75 practitioner articles on leadership, competencies, emotional intelligence, competency development, coaching, neuroscience and management education.
