Executive Coaching in Austin, TX
When you’re in a period of transition in your career, aren’t sure how to move forward, or simply feel as though something in your work life is “off” but you’re not sure what that something is—or what to do about it—you could probably benefit from seeing an executive coach.
Executive coaches are part motivational speaker and part sleuth, working with you to uncover your desires, as well as any blockages that may be preventing you from finding a deeper sense of fulfillment in your career. Your executive coach might help you establish key habits, develop support systems, learn how to better communicate in both your professional and personal relationships, or craft growth plans to help you reach your specific goals.
In short, executive coaches help you not only attain your loftiest ambitions, but live your best life.

MEET YOUR EXECUTIVE COACH
Audrey Eger Thompson, M.S.
Certified Executive and Wellness Coach
Long before Audrey became a certified life coach, she learned the impact of great coaching.
For her, it started at the age of 10, when she became a competitive swimmer. What was transformative about her own coaching experience was that, rather than be coached to compete with others, as is often the case in athletics, she was coached to compete solely with herself. Today, that simple yet powerful philosophy is at the core of her life coaching practice.
Audrey’s goal in coaching is to help you be your best—not in a way that glorifies perfection, but by giving you the tools, insights, and clarity to grow.
Whether your goal is to advance in your career, start your own business, or discover what you’re “born to do,” Audrey works with you to envision your long-term priorities, and then helps you create a path to reach them.
With a master’s in organizational development and more than a decade of experience with 1:1 executive coaching, in addition to running the largest statewide wellness program in Texas, Audrey’s approach to life coaching is rooted in her belief that personal wellness is tied to business success. She uses tools such as mindfulness, active listening, and positive psychology to help you build self-confidence and resilience.
Audrey’s mother, Dr. Edith Eger, is a Holocaust survivor. Her book The Choice, a New York Times bestseller, chronicles Dr. Eger’s experiences, as well as the wisdom that grew from them. Audrey will be offering a group based on The Gift called “Using Choice as a Path for Transformation.” Contact us to learn more.
