What is business coaching
Finding time to focus on your strategic vision can be difficult when you’re managing day-to-day operations at the coalface of your business.
That’s where Alluvion can help.
Our expert business coaches in Melbourne will guide you along the path to greater efficiency, higher profits and a better work–life balance (and we know how much you want the latter).
Whether it’s expanding into new markets or taking your company public, we’ll generate a practical plan for your business that will get you there.
You might feel that your company’s problems are unique – and in a sense they are. But our seasoned business coaches have advised hundreds of companies across dozens of sectors, including manufacturing, the service industry and not-for-profits. The vast knowledge and experience they’ve acquired through their work will be applicable to your company. We guarantee it!
Alluvion is in the business of making your business better. The measure of our success is your success.
HOW IT ALL WORKS
Alluvion business coaching revolves around a set of common-sense steps that, if followed, will take your company to the next level.
We walk through these steps with you:
Define your goals (personal and business) because once we understand where you want to go, we can create a plan to get you there.
Deep Dive workshop
A half-day workshop will give us an in-depth view into how your company operates. This data-gathering exercise will enable us to identify specific structural problems that need fixing and gaps that need filling.
Twelve-month ‘Fast Track’ plan
Your Alluvion coach will use this data to create a personalised plan that’s tailored to your individual business. This plan will be divided into four 90-day increments that enable your progress to be quantified and measured.
Once your plan is agreed, you’ll begin coaching sessions at scheduled weekly or fortnightly timeslots via Zoom or in-person depending on personal preference. Your personal Alluvion coach will also work outside your sessions on tailored business strategies for your company, and will be available via email, phone and text messaging.
Medium to long-term strategy option
If required, we’ll develop your business’ big picture and develop medium to long-term strategies that extend beyond the 12-month Fast Track plan.
Exit strategy option
Whether your goal involves the sale of the business, bringing in a management team, or implementing a succession plan for the next generation, we have the knowledge and experience to help.
Your coaching fees will be paid through our automated direct debit system.
How to get started
The first step along the path to Alluvion excellence involves a Business Exploration meeting where you and an Alluvion business coach meet to analyse the ins and outs of your business.
This is where you discuss pain points and commercial opportunities you may not have been able to exploit.
At the end of this meeting you should be able to assess whether you feel synergy between you and Alluvion.

Frequently Asked Questions
Alluvion business coaching sessions are conducted either in person or via Zoom, depending on scheduling. It’s also guided by your geographical location and broader circumstances, such as COVID-19 restrictions.
The cost of Alluvion business coaching depends on the complexity of your business and the frequency of your coaching sessions. These can be fortnightly or weekly but, as a general rule, your monthly cost will range between $1,800 and $3,700, plus GST.
Alluvion business coaching fees are charged monthly in advance and payments are deducted automatically via direct debit.
While most sessions work best with just one or two participants, it can also be useful during the Alluvion coaching process to consult with a wider sampling of team members from time to time.
Your Alluvion coach will always be available for you via phone, email or text. If they are attending other clients, they will get back to you the same day. Make sure your message lets the coach know how important it is that you speak with them.
The relationship between a coach and a client is a unique partnership. Our Alluvion coaches may discuss your issues with their peers to access new perspectives and ideas, but your coach will anonymise your information in order to protect your confidentiality.
You will sign a 12-month agreement, which includes a 30-day notice period to quit, should circumstances dictate that is the best thing to do.
Alluvion coaches have a broad range of experience in different businesses across a range of industries. They may have experience in your specific industry, but this is secondary because their expertise is in business coaching across a wide spectrum of companies, while you are the subject matter expert.
It is entirely possible that your Alluvion coach might be approached by one of your competitors. If this situation occurs, we will only agree to work with a competitor who operates in a different geographic market and/or serves a different type of customer. Moreover, in all circumstances you can be confident that your coach will always protect your confidentiality.
If there is an obvious direct conflict of interest, we won’t take them on.
If you provide us with sufficient notice, we will arrange an alternative session. If we are notified at the last minute, it is possible you might forfeit that session. If you are unavailable at a particular point in time you can nominate someone else in your business to attend a coaching session in your place.
We’re available to our clients over 45 weeks of the year. The remaining time we use to develop our skills further through training and conferences.
If your coach is available, they will be happy to coach other team members during your absence, and help them develop their business knowledge, skills and capabilities.
