Hi there, I'm SAM SCHAK (Your Quirky PM Friend), and I'm so excited you're here!

I'm a project manager, improv teacher, mental health podcast producer, and diversity & inclusion advocate. I use all of these facets to lead and train healthy and safe teams.

My goal is provide resources and techniques for project managers, product managers, and producers to start using with your teams. Check out my about page for more about my origin story and what I can bring to your organization.

This is a space for

empowering project leaders 

There's plenty of training and resources out there for c-suite level team members. I wanted to create content tailored to the CEO of projects, not companies.

"I look forward to working with Sam every day. She is a brilliant project manager, communicator, and facilitator."

"You can tell her team respects Sam and that they all collaborate well together, which is clearly her doing."

"I came away feeling completely validated and empowered after her workshop."
