About Us

At Max Coaching we are passionately committed to the idea that your career choices matter.

After all, they will determine what will fill your waking moments for at least 8 hours a day, 5 days a week for much of your life.

And yet so often we don’t choose what we will do for a living as much as we simply fall into it.

We may like what we’re doing but we think we could be doing more.

Or we realise we’re in the wrong career altogether and need to make a change.

Either way something tells us it’s not a perfect fit and we need to finesse our career choice or find one that will suit us better.

That’s where Max Coaching comes in.

We work with you to identify and achieve the career you want, using your preferences, skills, interests and values to assess the best options for you.

Alternatively, if you are happy in your chosen field, we will help you take your personal and professional strengths and skills to create a well-informed plan for career advancement.

Assisting you to make the most of your career are some of the most highly regarded and extensively qualified and awarded coaches in Australia.

Their passion to help you find a new career or advance in your chosen one is backed by a serious commitment to professionalism, an in depth knowledge of the labour market and a wealth of experience, including in executive leadership positions.
