Love the work you are doing with X. You really nailed him (in the resume). Very nice work, David.
Manager, Consulting Company, Paris, France
David offered both advice and encouragement, helping me to understand and adjust to the new context. I have no doubt that his support was vital to my success on that occasion. Without it, would have lacked the confidence required to carry on with what was a very daunting environment.
Senior Vice President, Major Global Entertainment Company
My job search was a difficult one because I was seeking a fairly senior position in a specific industry during somewhat unfavorable market conditions. This meant that it was very important to stay organized, focused, and creative in terms of networking, scoping out new opportunities, etc. On this front, David was extremely helpful. Just when I thought I had exhausted every possible avenue, David would inevitably come up with some solid suggestions for other paths to pursue.
More importantly, David’s role as a sounding board for specific issues, companies, etc. that I was thinking about proved to be invaluable. In addition to being a good listener, David’s logical, reasoned, realistic approach to whatever was on my mind always left me feeling much better about my situation than I felt prior to meeting with David. This was true all the way to the end where, with David’s guidance, I was able to secure and evaluate an offer from a company which ultimately led to a very important and satisfying career move for me.
Training Manager, Top HMO
David Couper coached me over a period of nine months after I took on a new role as a training professional.
Being a neophyte as a training professional we conducted a performance gap analysis on my skills and on the skills needed to perform the tasks. We developed a plan and action to bring me up to speed including courses, books, tapes, workshops, etc. Additionally, David helped me implement new training programs and was instrumental at guiding me through some local politics and dealing with some difficult people. David listened well and effectively directed me to making the best decision.
Partly due to his coaching, the training was successful and I have enjoyed my new position and have received excellent feedback on my progress. I continue to refer back to my notes from our sessions as a guide to my progress.
Director, Worldwide Not-for-Profit
David Couper is an excellent job and work coach. As a longtime manager, I thought I had the skills I needed, and I turned to David and he helped me successfully navigate and negotiate my way through some very treacherous water. When I finally decided to find a new career path, David coached me through a decision making process that led me to my current position. Among David’s vast skills is the ability to listen, and then ask the appropriate question to help the individual find the correct answer. He is knowledge about people, workplaces and all kinds of job situations that a worker may face. He is able to help people realize their potential. I value his expertise highly and would recommend him as a great resource to reach a successful conclusion.
Producer/Broadcast Manager, Major Professional Association
Through his boundless energy, his remarkable wit and his amazing ability to inspire, David Couper helped me clarify my sense of purpose and propelled me toward my vision.
His keen insight helped me cut through the clutter of negative thoughts and corrosive self-image, so I could concentrate on refining the attributes that got me the job I wanted!
Senior Manager, Fortune 100 Company
David was hired to coach me during my transition period, when I was hired as a training manager. I had never worked with a coach before but found his coaching services invaluable for a number of reasons:
* I faced some difficult company politics within the organization. David helped me to work through some of those issues and to resolve them. It was very helpful to have an objective person to bring clarity to the situation.
* My new role, as a manager, was very different from my previous job where I had been a Senior Consultant. As I faced this change, David gave me suggestions on how to handle the problems that came up. His advice was always based on logical analysis of the situation and enabled me to see the way to go more clearly.
* When I was offered another position at large corporation, David helped me work through the pros and cons of taking the new position or staying in my existing job. This process helped me to ultimately make the right decision.
I would recommend him as a coach for anyone in transition or facing change at work.
Manager, Big Five Accounting Firm
I was very recently returned from 10 years of working in Argentina. Such a large corporate environment was, therefore, new and somewhat overwhelming for me.
David offered both advice and encouragement, helping me to understand and adjust to the new context. I have no doubt that his support was vital to my success on that occasion. Without it, would have lacked the confidence required to carry on with what was a very daunting environment. David continued to generously give me indispensable advice and perspectives on the world of corporate America, which, on account of my foreign background and education, could, at times, become a source of difficulty for me.
I frequently benefited from his mentoring skills. Personally, I owe him a great measure of my own professional growth. He has been an example for me and for others and I wholeheartedly recommend him for coaching skills as well as for the other key managerial competencies mentioned above.
Writer (Former Television Actress)
David Couper is a gift. When I was at a loss as to how to move ahead with my career goals, I found that David had the expertise that I lacked. His knowledge, sound reasoning and business savvy gave me the ammunition I needed to forge ahead in my chosen field.
David is blessed with the capacity to spot psychological blocks that hinder progress and thwart the completion of goals. His insights are profound. His guidance is invaluable. Learning how to surmount business problems with David was easy and joyful. I highly recommend him to anyone who feels they deserve the very best.

“David Couper is an honest and sincere coach and an extra special team
player. He’s like the diamond player in reserve. When you call on him
you can be sure that he is going to play full-out for your success and
fully believe in you. He’s a great cheerleader! My experience was pretty amazing because he rated me far higher than I rated myself, and really rallied me to take on board what I had achieved. I’m someone who is very good at seeing the best and the brightest in others, and it took David to rally me to look at the best and the brightest in myself. He’s still an occasional player on my team, and he excels at holding up a mirror to the truth.
His integrity shines, and he walks his talk. You can really rely on him to chorus your success.”
