Proven tools that empower teams to transform hidden potential into realized talent.
Why Chose DCC?
We believe that to get better results we have to understand ourselves better first. Understanding leads to more authentic leadership which leads to increased revenue, better productivity, higher quality, and people who are happier at work. We can’t fix your organization but we can partner with you so you can.
Top Companies Choose DCC to Develop their Leadership Teams.
What We Do
Every organization has unique challenges and cultures. DCC understands those differences creating multiple paths to accomplish your goals. Rather than delivering tired development programs, we listen to your needs and build programs around you.
Understanding is at the heart of our philosophy which leads to more authentic leadership which leads to increased revenue, better productivity, dynamic cultures, and engaged people.
Burnout is one of the top reasons people are leaving their jobs. In Healthcare this is leading to retention and recruitment issues. Our pilot with KP nursing got nothing but positive reviews, and our work with a regional healthcare organization helped them to get through the pandemic.
“I’m very grateful for the training and coaching we completed with David Couper Consulting. I know our teams would not have weathered Covid as well without the work we did to lay the groundwork for our leaders through the work with DCC. Thank you to David and his team for helping us with resources to weather the storm.”

Transformational Coaching – Unlike most coaching firms we don’t only help people to understand what to do to be successful but we help them understand why they’re not doing those things. Those limiting beliefs, judgments, and stories are often what stop leaders from growing.
“I was recommended to undergo this professional training and honestly, I did not have high expectations. However, to my surprise, after two sessions, I quickly learned that these sessions were remarkably helpful. My coach helped me to realize each person has different strengths and together, we are stronger as a team. I truly enjoyed the training and this program has far exceeded all my expectations.“

Leadership Development – We have delivered our unique custom leadership development program to Kaiser Permanente, PeaceHealth, Martin Luther King Community Hospital, and Bozeman Health as well as non-health organizations like Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals, LAX, and other for-profit and not-for-profits.
One of Vision Essentials offices which had been at the bottom in Southern California ended up being at the top. It also got a 100% incentive payoff based on its stellar results. A manufacturing group passed all its goals both target and stretch based on the work we did with leaders from the director to the supervisors.
Culture Change – We help organizations change their culture to get better results. We’ve helped Kaiser Permanente take one area from the worst in the region to the top. We increased all metrics for a manufacturing group even those that they thought were impossible to change. And we helped LAX build their leaders to take on more as we supported their first-ever mentoring program.
25% of those attending the mentoring program got promoted during a one-year period. The rate of promotion for those not in the program was 9.92%. That’s a 15% increase in the promotion rate for those attending the mentoring and development program.

As the leader of an executive team, working with my coach to compare and contrast my strengths with the strengths of each member of the team has helped to manage team interactions and assignments more effectively. I can guide discussions more effectively, and I can ensure the right people with the right strengths are assigned to the right tasks.

The greatest learning and beneficial insight I discovered through the DCC Coaching Program is the power of thoughtfully exploring situations deeply, not as they always present for a better outcome. I’ve experienced an increased attention to presence, mindfulness and self-care. I’m leading from the heart and head. I believe other employees and/or leaders would benefit in the ways I have through the coaching by learning techniques for responding vs. reacting during stressful work situations and personal, authentic accountability. -Carol Aaron, Senior VP of Culture and People,

David Couper delivered team building, communication, conflict resolution, diversity, and performance management coaching for us. He worked with frontline employees, supervisors, and managers. His delivery style and humor was exceedingly effective with these groups, especially the senior classes. He was flexible and responsive to our needs and greatly helped the roll out of our training programs.
David’s keen insight and penetrating questions enable him to uncover how one’s innermost feelings can reveal unique opportunities for accelerated success.

The coaching program has exceeded all my expectations! It has made a tremendous difference every day that I'm at work. I have learned new skills to better communicate with my patients and my co-workers and have really experienced more joy and peace during the work day. This has also extended into a much more peaceful and less chaotic family life too. All the stress that I used to experience and then carry back home with me, now I know how to better manage those situations and not let them affect the rest of my day.

As a trainer, project manager, and coach, David has mastered the difficult and delicate balance required to keep tight deadlines, produce challenging, and creative work while, at the same time, act as a highly motivating influence on his teams and colleagues. I wholeheartedly recommend him for his coaching skills

I now know how to look for individual strengths within each of my team members and not assume that all people are the same or should be the same. I recognize that everyone has differing awareness levels and skill sets and I know how to meet them where they are and help bring out the best in what they have to offer our team and our company. I do this by seeing the big picture, yet I know how to break down the path to organizational change into baby steps now.
Coaching Program Participant, Kaiser Permanente Vision Essentials
Among David's vast skills is the ability to listen, and then ask the appropriate questions to help an individual find the correct answer. He is knowledge about people, workplaces, and all kinds of situations that workers face today. He is able to help people fully realize their potential. I value his expertise highly and would recommend him as a great resource to any organization.
