TOP GLOBAL RANKING: “MOST INFLUENTIAL THINKERS”

Cooper has again been voted one of HR magazine’s Most Influential International Thinkers. This ranking recognizes the practitioners and thinkers/academics who have had the greatest influence in the field of people strategy.

  • Challenges conventional thinking
  • Brings credibility...both inside and outside the business
  • Commands the respect of peers and key stakeholders
  • Adds real value to the business
  • Is visionary and transformational

A long list was developed from industry nominations, experts and HR’s editorial team’s expertise. An independent panel of judges debated the names to create a shortlist. Ashridge Business School interviews were also conducted with business leaders/CEOs, media commentators and city analysts.

Accelerating your next-level entrepreneurial success

Over the past two decades, we have coached hundreds of leaders, entrepreneurs, and teams to record-setting results. Members of our acclaimed 12 Leaders program are reinventing what’s possible as they transform industries and fields.

For the first time, we are offering a 90-day strategic 1:1 Cooper High Performance Coaching experience for selected leaders and entrepreneurs.

This COOPER HIGH PERFORMANCE COACHING package is a powerful 90-day launchpad for next-level results. It includes our exclusive online High Performance Profile drawing on extensive research in a peak performance database with over one million leaders and entrepreneurs.

This assessment requires about 45 minutes to complete online, and distills the finding into a profile view of your unique performance traits—identifying not only your special alignments of talents and strengths but also pinpointing where you are expending too much time and effort and energy “filling gaps.” The assessment works by focusing not only on accentuating key strengths and talents but also on creating effective new ways to recognize, optimize, delegate or outsource what has unknowingly been costing you precious time, effort and energy. Our 12 Leaders program participants use this same High performance Profile and related coaching to make many of their most significant breakthroughs.

Once you have completed your High Performance Profile, our team schedules a one hour 1:1 customized interpretation ad strategy session. We also provide you with our proprietary templates to clarify your top goals and targets and elevated the pacing and momentum of your results with weekly progress check-ins—the same ones we use in our 12 Leaders program—that you can readily initiate on your own.

Each month for the three months that follow, you will schedule two 1:1 customized high performance coaching calls:

  • One hour 1:1 call with Suanne Sandage, the Senior Coach at Cooper Strategic and our top High Performance Profile specialist, with over 20 years of experience working with a number of the world’s top leaders and entrepreneurs with Robert Cooper. Suanne will work with you on maximizing productivity and progress in simple, powerful uncommon ways that uniquely tailored to you.
  • One 45-minute 1:1 strategic advisory customized call with Robert Cooper, Ph.D.

We are offering a special all-inclusive fee of $15,000 for this Cooper High Performance Coaching package, a savings of more than 50% from our standard fees.

How much could a Cooper High Performance Coaching experience mean to elevating your success trajectory, not just in the near term, but for all time?

How much do you want to take a different, proven, streamlined approaching to raising your game and hitting higher targets?

This is an ideal starting program to set those results in motion.

Available separately, each High Performance Profile is $795 [group discount pricing is available] and includes the online assessment and a one-hour customized interpretation and strategic coaching call.


Building on the High Performance Profile results, Cooper Coaching packages are completely tailored to the individual leader, entrepreneur, or team. These coaching programs are led by Suanne Sandage, M.S., the managing director of executive and entrepreneur coaching at Cooper Strategic for more than 20 years.
