“I’ve known and worked with Michael Cooper for 7 years. He is a key partner as an Executive Coach, Leadership Coach, Facilitator, Trainer & Benchmarker on Internal Coach Training and Communication Mastery Programmes, as well as Facilitator for team interventions at different levels of the organisation. Michael is a professional, skilled and experienced coach who has worked with numerous leaders in our organisation to unlock their passion and purpose, and to integrate this in their work and personal lives. This has assisted managers in growing their emotional intelligence and self-management, as well as learning to use a coaching style in their daily interactions with their team members. It has been truly remarkable to work together in bringing coaching to life within the organisational systems, teams and people in so many facets. Thank you for your passion and professionalism in all that you do.” 

Liza Stead – Coaching Specialist, RMB

“I was coached by Michael for the first year of my new role as a board member in a listed organisation. His incisive questioning and strong EQ was instrumental in helping me transition into my role. His ability to impart useful concepts and tools that can be  used on a daily basis was extremely valuable in practicing what I had learned and agreed with him at our monthly session. I always felt that our sessions were tailored to me and my needs vs a standard session. I would recommend Mike to anyone who is open to learning and growing in their career, and anyone that needs someone to coach them through turbulent times.” 

Director – SAB Miller

“Insure engaged Michael Cooper as an executive coach. He worked with the executive team as a team coach and also with me personally as an executive coach. I Found working working with Michael to be useful and insightful and he helped me and my team as we transitioned into a new phase of the business. I would recommend Michael to anyone looking for either an executive or team coach.”
