About Amy Sanchez

Executive Career And Leadership Coach

Amy Sanchez Executive Career Coach

I am a Career & Leadership Coach and Workshop Facilitator who helps corporate leaders clarify and pursue their ideal career path and leadership style so they can maximize their happiness, impact, and earning potential.

My innovative coaching approach has guided hundreds of leaders, from Fortune 50 companies to Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, to find their unique value proposition while navigating change, amplifying leadership impact and accelerating team productivity.

I hold an MBA from USC and a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) license from the International Coaching Federation (ICF), one of the highest coaching distinctions. I am a keynote speaker and industry thought leader, with published works in leading business publications, including Fast Company, Glassdoor, Authority Magazine, Thrive Global, and the CEO magazine.

But none of this matters without my Why.

My Why

Prior to becoming a coach, I spent 13 years in Corporate America in sales then marketing working for big companies like Eli Lilly & Company, Johnson and Johnson and smaller start-ups. I got my MBA and worked long hours but never quite felt satisfied. I was getting promoted and compensated well for my time but inside, I knew I wasn't doing the thing I really loved.

Partly because of this, I constantly felt guilty, questioned my worth and felt so drained at the end of every day that, at times, I could barely muster the energy to maintain relationships outside of work. I was repeatedly ignoring the dream I had to help people in a more personal way and, in the process, underutilizing my natural gifts.

Then something happened that crystalized my priorities…

In the span of three weeks, my first daughter was born—and my grandfather died.

Two realizations hit me hard: My happiness was no longer just about me and life can slip away at any moment.

This awareness gave me the strength to explore the question: Am I meant to be doing something different?

I knew there was a different path forward for me—one that would put me at the intersection of my purpose, passion and potential. I partnered with a coach and did the hard work to figure out what I really wanted to do and realized: My calling was to help corporate leaders.

You see, my transformation from doing what I thought I was supposed to be doing to doing the thing I know I'm meant for unleashed a whole new side of me that has finally enabled me to reach my full potential... and show up the way I want to.

And there were clear differences between my performance and well-being in these two stages of my life.



Old Me

Short-tempered, always rushing, constantly thinking about “what’s next,” full of self-doubt, depleted.

New Me

Patient, relaxed, focused, confident, optimistic, and grateful.

Here's my Why: I'm here to help each and every leader who comes through my virtual door recognize and embrace their value and align with their purpose.  When that happens, my leaders truly change the world for the better.

If you're ready to find the career path and leadership style that's going to allow you to thrive and change the world for the better, let's chat.

After Hours

When I am not helping leaders make fulfilling career decisions, you might see me clearing a walking path through the toys of my two young daughters, who stretch me in new ways and provide so much joy every day.
