Ian Cook Biography

Ian Cook, CSP, MILR helps increase the effectiveness of executives and mid- level managers and the teams they lead.

Through his keynote presentations, highly interactive training workshops, and custom-designed team-building practice, his clients experience greater leverage on the significant ongoing investment they are making in their managers and teams.

He is a particularly good fit for your organization or client to address the following needs:

  • Leadership development at the executive and senior management level

  • Skill-based leadership development for mid-managers

  • Facilitation of retreats to build cohesive leadership teams and departments

  • One-on-one performance or development coaching of key managers

Ian's core philosophy comes across in all of his presentations:

_"Superior results occur when individual employees accept personal accountability for their own goals, priorities, performance, attitudes and how they choose to work with others.

And, while it is mostly up to the individual to find job satisfaction, managers can adopt proven leadership approaches to create an environment where people choose to excel."_
