Sam McKee has coached leaders from stellar companies like Google, Facebook and Microsoft and led workshops at Ivy-League institutions like Columbia University. From New York to San Francisco to Dubai, his diverse clients have given him a broad spectrum of culture and experience to cross-pollinate excellence and innovation.
His coaching centers on accelerating relationships, crystallizing vision, boosting engagement and achieving results that matter. From the Five Dysfunctions of a Team to Crucial Conversations and Building Conflict-Competent Teams, Sam tries to bring the right tools and resources to make a difference where it matters most. His tool kit includes many enlightening assessments (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Instrument, Strong Interest Career Inventory, CPI-260.) By far, the greatest asset he brings is his ability to ask the right questions and really listen and understand his clients’ strengths, struggles and dreams. With individuals and teams, Sam co-creates solutions that not only work but leave people energized, fulfilled and inspired about the future.
After graduating from the College of Executive Coaching, Sam became an ICF-certified executive coach. His rich background includes a Masters Degree in Spiritual Development from Andrews University and a Bachelors Degree in Journalism from Eastern Illinois University. Through reporting for a major newspaper in the Chicago area as well as being an editor, Sam learned the art of asking the right questions.
He’s spent more than a decade coaching leaders and teams, helping families through crises, speaking at national and international motivational and teaching venues, organizing events and retreats, leading teens on trips to build houses and work on orphanages in the third world. He’s also enjoyed co-writing a children’s book with his wife and getting articles published in various magazines and newspapers, including the Chicago Tribune and the San Jose Mercury-News.
Sam sums up his vision this way:
“My coaching centers on accelerating relationships, crystallizing vision, boosting engagement and achieving results that matter. My passion is to see people come alive and take their dreams and their teams to the next level.” —Sam McKee, ICF-Certified Executive Coach, Certified MBTI® Practitioner
