Being an engaging leader and having an engaged team is great but you must get the important things done whether you or your team feel like it. Whether you run your own business or work for someone else, you’ve probably got a lot on your plate. Along with the portion of your work that you feel like doing often comes a generous helping of things you’d rather not do. With many businesses failing due to not getting some of the important intentions that were necessary for it to thrive DONE then we can help give attention and support to this important area.
We provide masterclasses and keynotes based around the concepts of ‘The Power To Get Things Done – Whether You Feel Like It Or Not’ which Chris co-authored with Dr Steven Levinson and was published by Penguin Random House New York. We also provide bespoke team development events in the UK with our partner Carnegie Great Outdoors (Leeds Beckett University) which includes integrating the principles of getting things done with a whole host of fun, engaging, rewarding and challenging team games and outdoor activities. We also provide ongoing accountability and non executive style support as well as sometimes delivering important elevatory projects for our clients.

I have known Chris for several months and have found him the consummate professional.In particular running a workshop for our business customers on the Power to Get Things Done and looking at the potential solutions available to resolve this big issue that many of us face. The feedback from the event was fabulous with a great buzz around the room both during and after the event. It was a pleasure to work with Chris – Lucy Winn, Area Director HSBC Business Banking
‘Well, it’s official. I hate Chris Cooper. I no longer have any excuses for all the different ways I procrastinate and then rationalise them. Chris’s talk was excellent – professional, engaging, thought provoking and personally challenging. He not only introduced us to sensible, actionable ideas that we can put in place straight away, he did it in a thoroughly entertaining way. A knock-out session’ David Abbot, Marketing Strategist
The Power To Get Things Done has been designed to help leaders and managers to get those things that impact the performance of their organization DONE (whether they feel like it or not). The event is based upon the book ‘The Power To Get Things Done (Whether You Feel Like It Or Not) published by Penguin Random House and involves co-author and Business Elevation expert Chris Cooper working in partnership with Carnegie Great Outdoors team.
The 2-day (or 3 day) residential programme is aimed at individuals and teams who need to follow through with key initiatives. Through a mix of indoor and outdoor activities, group discussion in the classroom, self assessment and reflection; Individuals will become more knowledgeable and confident about what they need to get done, what they may need to overcome and the strategies to do so. Also, delegates with teams will think through how they can help others to get things done. The key principles can be shared in one day, however, a two day programme gives more time to come together as a team and leave on the front foot. A 3 day programme would include profiling and additional activities so that people have a map to understand the types of tasks they may naturally avoid and further strategies to overcome them.
On completion you will be able to:
Leave with greater clarity around your core intentions and priorities for yourself and your team (if you have one) for the next 12 months.
Be able to identify and avoid the reasons why people fail to follow through with what is important
Stop blaming yourself or your team for not getting the important things done – instead get more done as you know the process.
Understand the essential manual strategies that you will apply to ensure that the essential things get done.
Apply strategies against each of your core intentions to ensure you (and if you have a team) follow through.
Enjoy greater business and personal results in the year ahead
The programme can be provided in a range of accomodation including Youth Hostels, Country Hotels and Castles and Country Estates.

I binge watched the entire series of the ‘The Kindness Diaries’ and felt compelled to immediately […]See All News
In advance of my first ever public speaking gig, at a high profile event, I booked one to one coaching sessions with Chris Cooper. They were invaluable. Through working with Chris I learned so much in such a short space of time that I was able to pull together a well-structured and powerful PowerPoint presentation and deliver my talk with confidence. It clearly paid dividends as I received some fabulous feedback. This is a direct quote from one of the delegates:
“First time?! Thought you created a clear, engaging and informative talk. Have to say that, today, no other speakers I have seen have actually got the audience to interact with our own thoughts (rather than simply talking to us and asking rhetorical questions only) 😊 “
YAY! Thank you Chris for your encouragement, support and for believing in me. Sarah J NaylorSarah Naylor – Naylor George Recruitment More Testimonials
