Michael "Coop" Cooper, Founder & Head Coach, High Performance Orgs

Hi! I’m Michael “Coop” Cooper

If you’re like most business leaders I know, you’re doing the best you can with the time, knowledge, and resources you have – but sometimes it’s just not good enough – for yourself or your team.

You’ve likely wondered if there was an easier way to tackle your leadership challenges to set your team up for success.

I know you want to become the leader your team deserves, and it’s a struggle sometimes to figure it out on your own.

I get it.

For the past 25 years, as an Executive Leadership Coach, I’ve helped over 3,500 leaders in 1,000+ companies and over 150,000 employees across 33 countries just like you solve their toughest leadership challenges.

When growth is critical, I am committed to equipping you and your team with the tools, frameworks, skills, behaviors, and mindset so you can stop feeling overwhelmed and lead more effectively.

What Our Amazing Clients Say:

Coop was instrumental in helping our team clarify our customer focus, the business problems that we solve, our go-to-market strategy, and short-term execution plans.

After our Growth Alignment Session, our entire team engaged in conversations we should have been having all along.

We’re communicating more and making progress much faster together.

Insanely helpful on everything from high-level strategy to detailed day-to-day management.
