Leadership and Executive Coaching To Improve Happiness, Impact, and Earning Potential

Hi! I’m Amy Sanchez, a certified Leadership And Executive Coach.

I partner with leaders and companies via executive coaching, leadership coaching, and team building workshops to help them increase their impact so they can create happier and more successful lives and workplaces.

  • The average person will spend 1/3rd of their life at work.
  • Research overwhelmingly shows that when people are happy, they perform better.
  • My role is to help optimize mindsets, up-level skill-sets, and develop habits to make the workplace more fulfilling for everyone, ultimately leading to greater happiness, impact, and revenue.

This starts at the individual leader level and reverberates throughout the organization.

If you're ready to invite more ease into your leadership approach, navigate your career towards greater fulfillment, or support your organization through growth, join me on the journey to increased happiness, impact, and earning potential with a custom-designed executive leadership coaching program.

“It is difficult to sum up how much Amy has done to help me and the impact that it has on my life"

At a high-level, Amy gave me the tools to take stock in who I am, outline what I stand for and should therefore expect from people, and how to build my confidence and influence as a leader.

While Amy is an amazing coach helping leaders be more impactful, she is also highly impactful helping her clients pivot from careers and roles when the signs are pointing in that direction.

I feel confident that I am at the destination that I hoped to be at and am excited to start another journey with the navigation that Amy has helped me recognize was in my dashboard all along. I plan on keeping Amy in my life as I keep moving ahead.”
