I coach and mentor partners. Period.

Becoming a partner and leader is tough. I know because I’ve been there. At times baffled by all the stuff my firm threw at me while trying to stay afloat, I also wondered why other partners seemed so much more at ease and, apparently, did the right things?

Getting clear on what I wanted, figuring out my strategy and ensuring that I executed the proper steps helped me enjoy a successful career. You can get there too.

Hi, I’m Max Habeck. I coach and mentor partners at Big Four and similar firms. I’ve worked in consulting all my life, first, at Kearney, a strategy firm, where I made partner and practice leader. Later, I became a managing partner at EY, looking after 1,100 people in one of the fastest-growing practices globally. And I wrote two books on post-merger integration, my career theme.

Now, I support partners to build standout practices while having a life.

Ultimately, for me, it's about excitement, confidence and joy for people in large professional services firms-wherever they may be.
