Introducing AltusQ

AltusQ is a coaching firm, founded in 1999 and operating across Australia and New Zealand. We deliver business, executive and team coaching to assist with the growth of organisations and the development of leaders.

Our coaches are all expert facilitators skilled in guiding teams (both leadership and functional), partners and boards to a shared view of their culture, opportunities, goals and strategies. Alignment is then the foundation on which we help businesses build their capabilities to lead and engage their employees.

All of our coaches are selected for their extensive business experience at a senior level.  As such, they value practice over theory, and focus on ensuring that clients realise a material ROI from coaching.

Our coaching methodologies and frameworks are globally recognised as industry best practice by the EMCC (European Mentoring and Coaching Council), of which we are an accredited member. We are a Founding Member of the Asia-Pacific Branch of the EMCC.

AltusQ works with clients large and small, including large corporates, Federal & State Government organisations, mid-tier and emerging businesses.

Our people

AltusQ coaches are people who blend a truly unique set of skills. They all come from the real world – they’re experienced business people who value practice over theory. They have awareness and presence – the ability to discern, and to ask, the hard questions that need to be asked. Above all they are passionate about helping businesses and people realise their true potential.

Our Associates are people we know very well - typically they are AltusQ alumni who have completed the full range of AltusQ training and who deeply understand our coaching models and frameworks.
