& Culture Skills
for Startup Founders
I help game-changing startup founders
develop and optimize their leadership culture for scaling.
90% of startups fail – usually because most startup founders and leaders have no formal leadership training and very few have the skills and strategies to optimize their culture for scaling.
Leverage my 22 years of experience working with over 2,500 leaders and executives from over 1,000 companies in 33 countries to navigate the myriad challenges you will face running a startup while scaling it.
Get more organized, set yourself and your team up for success, develop the skills to lead amid constant change, overcome doubt and imposter syndrome, develop clarity of vision and corresponding actions. Executive Coaching can help you achieve all of these and more.
From funding to working with venture capital firms and your Board to building your team to developing and optimizing your leadership culture for growth to building trust and alignment across your team. 10X Coaching for 10X results.
Learn from my 22 years of experience coaching over 2,500 leaders across 1,000 companies in 33 countries and helping to raise over $1.2 Billion in funding.
90% of startups fail – let’s make sure yours doesn’t.
Work through problems and decisions together. Address your teams’ sensitive topics, blocks, frustrations, personal issues, and “elephants in the room.” Align your organization’s goals to rapidly changing market conditions.
The right help at the right time focused on what your team really needs – all with expert guidance and facilitation, leveraging my experience with hundreds of startups around the globe.
Culture Skill Sprints
There are very specific skills every startup founder, leader and manager must learn to develop and optimize your culture for growth and scale.
Build and optimize your culture from the ground up with the required elements of psychological safety, trust, alignment, cooperation based on information needs, motivators, attention spans, fears and stress responses of your colleagues. Set each other up for success.
Hone your teams’ ability to adapt to changing conditions faster than ever to stay relevant and competitive.
Learn new skills quickly using proven on-the-job examples, backed by science, not text-book theories. From management and leadership skills to culture skills, I focus on equipping your teams with the skills to thrive.
What Clients Say
Coop has been an invaluable resource for my executive team and I. As a first time founder trying to scale a new business during a global pandemic, I don’t know what I would have done without Coop’s strategic guidance and counsel.
When we started working together, Baton had no customers and no employees. Coop helped us navigate many of the early challenges facing our business – selling to our first enterprise customer, hiring our first executive, building out or technology strategy, and most recently, articulating the right story to investors for our Series A financing.
While Coop is a brilliant business thinker, the thing that sets him apart is his ability to counsel his clients through the emotional, personal, and interrelationship aspects of starting a business. He’s helped me identify and work through personal shortcomings and insecurities and grow as a leader.
Coop’s coaching was invaluable in helping me work through many challenges and opportunities that came out of this period of growth. He provided clear insights, tools, and frameworks that were consistently actionable. He strikes the right balance between being supportive and challenging, and regularly kept me accountable and pushed me to always handle difficult items directly and effectively. He was helpful across the spectrum between day-to-day operational topics to multi-year strategic topics. I’d highly recommend working with him!
When things got heated, he diffused the situation quickly. He constantly read the room, captured notes for the team so we could stay present and focused, changed the agenda based on energy levels, changed the approach to a conversation when he saw the team devolving into chaos, made helpful suggestions for items we hadn’t planned to discuss and kept the team on track. Our entire team was surprised by how much we accomplished in a short period of time and they spoke very highly of Coop’s skills.
I look forward to working with him in the future and highly recommend him if you need to get your leadership team on the same page or clarify your strategy or execution plans.
