Brad has been my Coach since early in 2016. During this time he has helped me achieve my professional goals, whether they were to land a job, change careers, or achieve business objectives. He often tells me, “I am fully committed to my clients’ success”, which he demonstrated each time we spoke, whether it was weekends, nights, vacations - even during a hurricane! With his coaching, I have succeeded in pivoting from a strong career in Engineering to an even better one in User Experience Design, including landing a dream job in this new field. The path from one career to another, coupled with the search for a new job, is undoubtedly a struggle. During this journey, Brad coached me through shaping my strategy, such as my building my online presence and reaching out to other professionals in my desired field for advice and insights. He was my sounding board during the trials of interviewing and negotiating. He built up my confidence and helped me develop my leadership skills. Brad empowered me to know my worth and guided my negotiations with a prospective employer. Through his coaching, I was able to obtain a total compensation package beyond what I thought was possible. In preparation for starting my new job, he coached me through the initial conversations with the director, my supervisor and peers. With his acumen and persistence, Brad instilled in me the mindset of succeeding though delivering value to the Customer and Company. He drew well on his forty years of leadership and business experience , as well as his experience as an Executive Coach. With Brad’s help, I am thriving at my new company and in my new career. I am pleased to recommend Brad Schupp as an Executive and Business Coach to individuals and companies who hope to achieve the results they desire.

If you’re looking to grow your business, Brad is the person to do it for you! I have worked closely with Brad for over 25 years and have witnessed his ability to transform an organization through the rigors of strategy development and execution supplemented with process improvements that will increase quality and reduce costs. The key to his success in transforming organizations is his focus on aligning all groups within that organization to the strategy and then setting rigorous standards and goals for all members of the team to meet during it’s execution. He is also a Master Black Belt who will guide your organization in the development and execution of improvement programs that are directly linked to increased margins. You will not find a more disciplined individual with a more rigorous process capable of engaging all levels of the organization and building their commitment to produce increased top and bottom line results. Al Zampiello, Senior Project Manager, Raytheon Company

Brad was introduced to me by my most trusted colleague. His executive coaching style is both highly personalized and truly eye-opening. In terms of personalization, he gets to know his clients – their personality, preferences, history, and aspirations. In terms of being eye-opening, he has a knack for helping people see the forest through the trees and asks challenging questions that cannot always be answered on the spot – yet questions that are key to where the client wants to go. I absolutely recommend him as an Executive Coach to help individuals understand what they are capable of and reach their full potential. Dan Valentine, Esq., P.E., Senior Project Manager and Head of Nuclear QA, Simpson Gumpertz & Heger Inc.

When I started my engineering career in 1983, I had the good fortune to be working for Brad Schupp. In addition to being our boss, Brad was always coaching our team to be better than we thought we could be, and, to achieve more than we thought possible. Although I've always been technically very competent, Brad helped me realize that I needed to develop in ways that were orthogonal to my technical skills, but essential to my professional growth. He helped me improve my critical thinking, applied in different ways, to communication, project planning, career planning, and optimizing professional interactions with co-workers and Customers.
Over the years Brad has helped me develop these skills with a close coaching relationship. He continues to be a very trusted advisor. Brad has the ability to evaluate any business situation, identifying the essential elements needing to be addressed, to maximize the probability of achieving the desired outcome. Through his coaching, he has helped me develop these same skills. This has proven invaluable to me as I have transitioned between individual contributor, consultant, and business owner roles throughout my career. I have been empowered in my professional life to successfully choose and pursue any direction of my choosing. I credit Brad for helping me to have the necessary skills to make that happen. I highly recommend Brad if you have a need to develop and build a team of high performing leaders. Mark Pieper, Applications Engineer at Texas Instruments
