    Amanda has worked across many different global industries and organizations - from big corporate, to non-profit, to small founder-focused businesses. In each experience, she sought out the type of leaders that she wanted to emulate later in her career - the fabled empathetic, intelligent, resilient leader who could carry the burdens of leading an organization as well as inspire teams to give their best every day.


    With every new experience, she realized that leadership wasn’t industry, geography, or even age-specific. People all around her were leading teams without really understanding what it meant to be a good leader, and without realizing when their teams were frustrated or disillusioned at work.


    Amanda watched so many talented individuals leave their jobs in frustration, not because they didn’t enjoy their work, but simply because they could no longer stand working for a bad leader.


    She knew that most managers wanted to be great, and often lacked the knowhow to make it happen - and realized that the biggest impact she could have on an organization, and on each individual who works there, is to help develop people become better leaders.


    Amanda founded The Courage Factory to help passionate, inspired. and unconventional leaders, like you, to bring your full heart to your work and become an inspiring and transformational leader.

    Leading the Next Generation

    The massive shift that's currently taking place in the way that we work creates the need for a new type of leader - one who shows up compassionately, is self-aware, and is willing to do the deep inner work needed to completely transform the way we do business in the future.


    As a leader, you care about how you show up everyday, and how you support your team to have a positive impact, not only on your organization but also in the world.


    You know you have unlimited potential and boundless energy inside of you, but you have no idea how to access it. Or maybe you’re scared of what will happen when you do because you know your whole world is about to change.


    You are destined to be transformational. I can’t wait to help you get there.

    "Amanda has a knack for asking really powerful questions that lead you to your own solutions. What I’ve found from my time with Amanda is, she helps me see that I already know the answer to some of my biggest challenges. She guides me to my own solutions by holding space for me and asking questions that help me see things from a different perspective. She gets me out of my own head. She’s gifted at what she does. Five stars”
