Infantino

We brought Kobe in to work with our leadership team. He taught us how to lead with care, especially how to have difficult conversations when people are feeling stuck.

We had someone on my team that was not thriving. Before, we would have expected that person to leave the organization. After working with Kobe, we knew how to have the difficult conversations that were necessary to move forward and make this individual a productive member of the team.

Now, asking for help is accepted in our organization. We listen more actively and we ask great questions. We’re successful because we enroll people in the process and give them the space, time, and tools to fix their own problems.

NuCamp

Our company worked with Juliana to gain strategic direction for planning our five-year future.

We’ve learned a tremendous amount in many areas, including the importance of collaborating and working together to create a common target goal so that every team member knows the direction of the company and can work together to achieve it. We also became aware of the important of giving clear direction to peers and each team member to accomplish tasks efficiently. A big part of this was learning the importance of clear answers: “A clean no is better than a dirty yes.”

My natural style is to be a hard driver and push projects through without accounting for people’s feelings and level of buy-in. learned the important of going slow enough in every aspect of the company—strategically and tactically—to make sure the team is following closely and on the same page.

Juliana exceeded my expectation in the way she’s coached our team to become high level achievers and have better communication throughout the organization. I’m extremely satisfied and impressed with her professionalism and I look forward to working with her again in the future.

It’s been enormously valuable to have Altus Growth Partners work with me and my senior leadership to grow ourselves and the company. 

Heather and Pam have provided exceptional team development, coaching, and guidance. What we learned from them we’ve used every day as we navigate the ups and downs of the biopharma journey. Pam and Dan have also partnered with us very skillfully to develop and align on a strategic plan for the company. 

Across multiple companies and two CEO roles, I’ve worked with many great consultants, but this team listens and brings out the best in everyone in a way that is extraordinary. My entire management team—including the skeptics—thinks Altus Growth is fantastic, and we look forward to more.

Altus is the best at what they do. They have been contributing to the success of our organization for more than ten years. One of their many outstanding strengths their ability to take in a great amount of input and quickly get to the core of the issue.  This skill, combined with their vast knowledge and experience in working with SMBs and Fortune 500 companies, makes them invaluable to leaders of organizations who want to make a significant impact on their culture, leadership development, and overall success. I give Altus a well-deserved recommendation ,because I have a tremendous amount of respect for what they do and who they are.

I highly recommend Altus for strategic planning, team communication, support/dynamics/education, team building, executive coaching, and conflict resolution. Altus has been instrumental in Cognitive Medical Systems’ growth, maturity, and team building at the founder, executive team, and management team levels. Working with Altus has been one of the best investments we’ve ever made. I learn something from Kobe at Altus every time I speak to him. I consider him an invaluable resource, a mentor, and a friend.
