A person's context is the unconscious mindset from which they operate. It is shaped by their personal experiences and the conclusions drawn from those experiences. Those conclusions are masquerading as facts and significantly impacting their behavior and actions.

The Contextual Leadership methodology is a powerful process used to guide individuals through a personal re-invention experience that will enable them to achieve breakthrough results both personally and professionally. At its heart is a profound understanding of the role that a person's context and past plays in shaping their perception, attitudes, behaviors and results. Have you ever known what to do but you still don't do it?

Who Is It For?

This series is designed for business owners, managers, and individual contributors looking for what’s next, wanting to elevate their current success, or interested in how to resolve an issue.

What Others are Saying

"Contextual Leadership helped me see what was at play (unknown) in the background, shaping my interactions and effectiveness. I was able to shift the context from which I operated intentionally, and get in the driver’s seat of what I wanted to create for the office. My own transformation with my team was so powerful that I wanted my leaders to have the same access to effectiveness. We held several Contextual Leadership workshops with my executive and supervisory teams, with incredible results. Imagine, a “training” that managers and supervisors continue to request more of...unbelievable! Contextual Leadership is the most powerful methodology I’ve encountered for taking effective action."
Laura Roth, Clerk of Courts, Volusia County
