VISION & STRATEGY
ESV Accounting and Business Advisors
Facilitating the development of business vision and strategy was the first step, followed by executive coaching to develop and support leaders and emerging leaders.
Creating and growing a successful business is an impressive achievement but it can all be wasted if you can't eventually exit the business with an appropriate reward for your efforts. Luckily this is a "solved problem" that a good coach can guide you through.
DEVELOPING FUTURE LEADERS VIA MENTORING
AltusQ developed and delivered a managed mentoring program pilot for Brickworks where 100% of the participants ended up saying they would recommend the program to a colleague. As a result 2019's follow-up program has been massively over-subscribed. A good problem to have!
