Executive Coaching

The purpose of executive coaching is to help coaching clients create awareness of the underlying preferences and assumptions that create their work and leadership styles, to understand the impact that these assumptions and preferences have on their colleagues and work performance, and create and execute a plan that eliminates behavioral and attitudinal derailers and improves their effectiveness as a colleague and leader. The executive coaching process is collaborative effort between the coaching client, the organization and the executive coach. The Center for Contexts has coached thousands of leaders across industries and disciplines.
