About Cupela Business Consulting & Executive Coaching

Cupela Business Coaching & Executive Consulting supports companies in the retention and development of their high potential executives. When executives are faced with significant transformations such as dramatic growth or change of management, succession planning, or transition, we are there as either coach, consultants, or both.

Cupela will fill any potential skill gaps and equip the leadership team to successfully tackle those challenges. We do this by supporting companies in developing skills such as organizational savvy, building global alliances, conflict management, executive presence, improving motivational skills, and many more.

Our executive coaching offers business professionals intensive personal development for a higher level role along with guidance to think through a critical career situation, as an experienced and confidential sounding board.

Cupela coaching will support executives in identity-defining long term strategy and self-direction, or address issues that are stalling progress in their career. Cupela believes leaders of all levels can reach their full potential if they engage in a coaching relationship with someone who is deeply committed to their development and has the fundamental experience and expertise necessary.
