Our Mission

Working with Executives, Leaders, Organizations and Companies "to support and empower greatness, gain clarity, inspire balanced lives, align strengths and vision and to co-actively create an intentional plan to pull all the pieces together and complete the puzzle of success."

An extensive executive background in policing and security operations has allowed Bob to bring transferrable leadership and management skills to his business in order to assist executives and companies to develop the full potential of their present and emerging leaders.

Executives and their companies are constantly on the search for a competitive advantage and a lot of Fortune 500 companies have learned that adopting the disciplined behaviours found in military, law enforcement, sports and the arts can help them to gain that advantage they seek. We help companies do just that through coaching executives and management teams.

    THE WORK OF LEADERS MADE SIMPLE:
    VISION, ALIGNMENT, AND EXECUTION.

    Everything DiSC Work of Leaders® is classroom training that uses online pre-work, engaging facilitation with contemporary video, and online follow-up to create a personalized learning experience. Based on best practices, Work of Leaders connects unique leadership styles to real-world demands, generating powerful conversations that provide a clear path for action.

    Everything DiSC Work of Leaders approaches leadership as a one-to-many relationship, as opposed to the one-to-one relationship explored in Everything DiSC® Management. It focuses on tangible steps directed at leading a group or organization toward desired outcomes.

    Using the framework of Vision, Alignment, and Execution, Work of Leaders encourages leaders to understand their own leadership styles and how they impact their effectiveness. Rich, compelling narrative adds depth to the data and strong visuals support the learning process by illustrating

  • Executive Coaching

    Executive coaching is an experiential and individualized leader development process that builds a leader’s capability to achieve short- and long-term organizational goals. It is conducted through one on- one and/or group interactions, driven by data from multiple perspectives, and based on mutual trust and respect.

    The organization, an executive, and the executive coach work in partnership to achieve maximum impact.

    Whether you are seeking growth in your career, a breakthrough as a leader, or need to identify an appropriate work/life balance, Executive Coaching can help you or one of your executives' achieve professional and personal development goals.

  • Leadership Development

    Leadership Coaching is intended for individuals interested in discovering their full potential and achieving extraordinary results. Through a process of inquiry and reflection, leadership coaching helps individuals tap into their own abilities to solve problems, overcome barriers, conquer challenges and achieve goals.

    The leadership coaching program delivered by Cowper Leadership helps high-achieving individuals develop the interpersonal skills and confidence they need to be successful in a leadership role or team environment.

  • Group Executive Coaching

    We apply the same critical elements from our successful individualized executive coaching with groups of leaders so that larger numbers of executives gain the benefits of our experience and methodology while still maintaining discretion. In some cases, the dynamics of a group of executives working together is extremely valuable as they learn from each other and feed off the camaraderie that is created during the process.

    Our clients who receive group executive coaching report the following benefits:

    . Strong buy-in of the company’s investment in their future and increased retention
    . Improved leadership qualities, impact, and organizational performance
    . More robust Succession Planning
    . Solid ROI

  • Strategic Planning

    Cowper LMD Inc. is available to help identify gaps in your organizations, provide feedback and a strategic plan to address your organizations needs.

    By conducting a thorough diagnostics of your company, we can implement a targeted plan to create the environment you are looking for.

    A strategic plan is the ”game plan” that a company utilizes to build commitment and to agree on priorities that are essential to its mission and responsive to a dynamic operating environment. Strategic planning is a management tool that can help a company focus, so that all organizational resources are optimally utilized in accomplishing its mission. A strategic plan can help a company position itself in its chosen market, serve constituents, satisfy stakeholders, and achieve successful performance.

    Strategic planning is a process that helps you focus on understanding your marketplace and on aligning your resources to take advantage of the opportunities in your market.
