CEOs & EVPs have kindly said the following:

“I feel very fortunate to have had Winston as my career coach. Through his skills and his ability to listen and give honest, clear feedback he helped me become a better professional ready for bigger challenges. I was impressed how a self proclaimed “cocky fighter pilot” in the beginning of his career could become such an amazing people person. But Winston did it and taught me important lessons about how to overcome my own challenges to become a successful professional.”

Marcelo de Lima, Marketing Executive

“Cope brings great situational awareness and insight into company dynamics…. I found his coaching to be very helpful to my taking comprehensive stock of my personal values, capabilities and motivations and then identifying habits and behaviors that were out of alignment…

“Winston is a “can-do” leader that can understand an objective and organize a team to achieve the result needed. Cope is one of those individuals that puts his “all” into his work, treats people at all levels with respect (key to success in any leadership position), manages by metrics, and can focus a multi disciplined team towards a business objective. It has always been a pleasure working with Cope both as a member of the Sun Federal Leadership Team running our entire business development organization building a $2.2B pipeline of program business, and as an account manager for Boeing where he regularly pulled in hundreds of millions in revenue.”

“Over my 41 years in the computing business, I’ve had the honor and distinct privilege of working with several individuals of exceptional accomplishments including leadership. Winston, Cope to his friends and colleagues, occupies that exclusive position of being among the most exceptional leaders I’ve known and with whom I’ve interacted directly. His leadership and mentoring benefited me and several others immensely. I am confident, therefore, that Cope will excel in any management task since his leadership will be accepted readily by those being lead. Any organization which has Cope on their staff can be assured that they have the best leadership talent available. I highly recommend him for any senior management position.”

Cope was always willing to listen and provide assistance. Cope also did a great job of actively engaging the appropriate team members to quickly and effectively identify priorities. I highly recommend Cope for his professionalism and leadership.”
