for a life
THE ORIGIN STORY
For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved people and I’ve loved words. I often marvel at the fact that my life’s journey has brought me to a place where I get to bring those two loves together each day in my work.
Over the last 20 years in the field of communication, I’ve learned that it’s not enough to tell people, “You have to communicate.” As a directive, that statement isn’t helpful because what it means to communicate effectively means something different to each of us.
What we need are tools and practical strategies that help us raise our level of self-awareness and strengthen our communication abilities. My goal is to make that process easier for folks who understand it to be a necessary part of the healthy relationships they desire, both personally and professionally.
AS SEEN IN:
I work with organizations that value their people and want to prove it by having healthy communication practices and a positive company culture.
As an executive life coach, I work with high-achieving, public-facing women on the brink of their next level.
Amber helped me find myself. The woman outside of the leader and the CEO.
She helped me gain confidence, to hold my head up, to find joy, and understand the possibilities that exist when I recognize who I am and walk confidently in that knowing.
It was a pleasure having Amber as our keynote speaker for our employee Wellness Week.
From the beginning, Amber and her team ensured that we felt understood, seen, and reassured that our employees would be receiving a thoughtful, warm, and inspiring keynote. We were blown away!
As an executive coach, Dr. Amber Wright has been an invaluable asset to my career development.
Over the past six years, through three executive director/CEO positions, the investment I made in her coaching services has not only been an investment in my professional excellence but, more importantly, an investment in myself.
Our leaders are high performers who are not easily impressed and they continue to share the awesome and impactful experience they had in your excellent presentation.
Thank you for helping to invest in a great team as they continue to grow in their communication skills as leaders!
Amber is excellent at what she does. As a communication coach, she has helped me prepare for interviews...
…in which I was able to convey my authentic self, passion, and skill set in a confident but engaging manner. In every interview in which I have used her assistance, I landed the position. She is just that good! Amber is a joy to work with; she is a wordsmith, dedicated to her craft, witty, and dependable.
If you're looking for a strong foundation as an effective communicator...
if you’re looking for ways to use better communication to be a better leader and have better conversations, you’re looking at the best person to work with.

As a speaker, I often tell the story of how my oldest daughter taught me the power of asking better questions. When she was in elementary school, I would pick her up each day and excitedly ask, “How was your day?!” Her guaranteed response each time was, “Good.” That was it. A flat, one-word response […]
