I WANT TO BE A WORTHWHILE VENTURES BUSINESS COACH
As a Worthwhile Ventures coach you will join a select pool of coaches to grow and support participating Aboriginal enterprises.
Coaching is provided on a pro bono basis to the enterprises and the position of coach is a voluntary one. A coach will be matched with an enterprise to advise on a range of areas relating to the management and operation of the company. Coaches are expected to gain a deep understanding of the enterprise’s background and situation and draw on their experience to provide guidance.
This could then lead to development of a business strategy, budgets and operational plans; implementation of the plans would then be reviewed by the coach and business owner on a regular basis. Depending on need, help in business areas (e.g. accounting, marketing, HR) could be provided by specialists. Coaches will therefore need to have significant experience and skills. Coaches are also expected to be open and able to share their personal journeys in engagement with Indigenous culture and practice; Worthwhile Ventures will support new coaches through an on-boarding program to ensure their cultural readiness and that respectful and successful relationships are forged.
