Sam Deep launched his leadership development career in 1986 after 15 years of teaching and administration at the University of Pittsburgh. Since then he has worked with or spoken in front of over 150,000 people, his 15 internationally published books have sold well over one million copies in fourteen languages, and his last four audio tapes were featured on USAir’s EntertainAir.

When Dennis Waitley said that Sam’s books brilliantly cut straight through to the core values and actions that produce results, he was referring to Smart Moves (now in fifteen printings and fourteen languages), What to Say to Get What You Want, Yes You Can!, Smart Moves for People in Charge, Power Tools, Close the Deal, Act On It!, and his latest, Lost and Found.

Sam’s ideas about management have been quoted in newspapers and magazines throughout the country as well as on CNN-FN, CNBC, and WGN radio Chicago. He served as an adjunct professor of leadership and strategy at the Graduate School of Industrial Administration of Carnegie Mellon University from 1998 to 2006. He also hosted for eight years “Following the Leader,” a weekly radio program on KQV in Pittsburgh that focused on building better corporate leaders. His current consulting services include executive coaching, leadership development, team building, and strategic planning.

A small sampling of his clients past and present include Alcoa, Allegheny Power, American Institute of Banking, American Electric Power, American Society of Association Executives, Auditor General of Pennsylvania, Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, Baker Engineers, Bayer Corporation, Bombardier Transportation, Caribe Hilton Hotel, Carnegie Mellon University, Carolina Cattleman’s Association, CEO Clubs of America, Cutler-Hammer, Deloitte & Touche, Grant Thornton, GS1 US, Hallmark Cards, Heinz USA, International Customer Service Association, Ketchum, Koppers, Mellon Bank, Mercer Consulting, Merck, New York University, OfficeMax, People’s Natural Gas, PNC Bank, PPG Industries, Pittsburgh Symphony, Puerto Rico Hotel and Tourism Association, Starter Corporation, United Mental Health, U.S. Foodservice, Veterans Administration, and Westinghouse.

When you experience the impact of Sam’s counsel, training, and facilitation you will discover why none other than Tom Peters predicts that you and your teams will come away from his programs “with practical ways to implement positive change in the gut level day-to-day experience.”
