Thriving in an uncertain world

For over ten years, we’ve been working with globally focused leaders to grow the capabilities required to thrive in today’s complex organizations and systems.

Our clients engage us when they want to:

  • Design and lead transformational change
  • Align culture and capabilities with new strategies
  • Develop collaborative leadership across the system
  • Address complex challenges in the midst of action

We design and facilitate capacity-building at every level of scale, so that leadership cultures can emerge and flourish. Our approach draws from the most current research and practice in adult development, neuroscience, creativity, leadership, and transformational change.

“It has been a privilege to partner with Context over the past several years. Their experience and global team of associates guided our leadership team as we transformed our culture and capabilities. There’s no better example of Context’s unique value than at Allston Landing, where seventy-five managers developed the mindset and skills to navigate the escalating complexity of our business. See the story in Life Science Leader magazine.”

Sandra Poole, Senior Vice President Biologics Operations, Genzyme-Sanofi
