The AQ Partners is a corporate accountability coaching firm founded by Tasha Howland and Cheron Porter.
Our belief is that with strong accountability, you can achieve anything you desire in life and are passionate about helping individuals reach their highest potential both personally and professionally through accountability coaching.
We specialize in providing support, guidance, and encouragement to help our clients take specific actions that align with their goals. Our curated navigation approach ensures that our clients remain engaged, focused, and intentional, without getting distracted from their objectives.
As Accountability Coaches, AQ Partners acts as an independent observer to our client’s journey and gives an unbiased viewpoint of their approach to challenges. We then work with the client to create a plan that helps them break down their goals into actionable and attainable steps that enables them to move with momentum without getting distracted or losing energy and effort in the wrong direction.
Our approach cultivates habits that lead to success and growth while avoiding any feelings of overwhelm. It allows people to count on each other, whether that means meeting deadlines, fulfilling duties, or feeling comfortable enough to approach a co-worker or manager for help.
In the corporate culture, accountability breeds trust and productivity, for the recipient accountability is vital to sustaining long-term personal success.
We collaborate with our clients to deliver innovative, realistic, and comprehensive strategies and solutions that inspire and create momentum while building upon the work being trailblazed by both Mosaic and Wave. We will work with your team to build an emboldened space that compliments your core values and resonates with employees.
