Hi! I'm Amanda Gulino, Founder of A Better Monday.

I’m a coach, a talent & culture whiz, an advisor, and a lifelong learner on a journey to help you unlock your potential and the potential of others. My mission in life is about you — it’s my ultimate purpose to help you boldly go after everything you want in your work and life.

The most important thing I can share with you is this: Really (really) good things come from investing in people -- that includes you and those you work with. 

Work can be fun. Life can be fulfilling. Mondays can be awesome.

We can get you there!




Amanda Gulino is the Founder at A Better Monday, a people-focused coaching and consulting company. With over a decade of experience in the talent and culture space, she is an accomplished coach, facilitator, speaker, and leader working with purpose-driven and mission-driven clients across the U.S. Those that worked with Amanda have described her as pioneering, intentional, bold, driven, and relational.

At A Better Monday, Amanda works with individuals and organizations. She helps individuals to step boldly toward their big, wild, lofty goals and dreams through 1:1 life, leadership, and career coaching. She also helps teams to design, build and invest in people and to build organizational cultures where everyone can thrive. She works with clients to create healthy, happy teams by developing and facilitating team retreats, facilitating workshops, developing inclusive and equitable talent programs, and coaching leaders to fully live into their roles as people leaders.

Amanda's work has been featured in Fast Company, Glassdoor, FabFitFun, and Thrive Global.  In her free time, you can find Amanda traveling, drinking a cup of coffee, reading or hanging out with her rescue dogs and partner.

In addition to running A Better Monday, Amanda is a leadership development trainer at Full Potential Ventures, a facilitator at InclusionVentures, and an affiliate with Barbara Waxman.

Other fun facts:

  • Amanda grew up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and lived there through college. After that, she moved to New York City and now lives in the Bay Area with her dogs and partner.

  • Amanda is running the NYC marathon in 2019 on behalf of Reading Partners, her professional home for over 4 years!

  • When Amanda was a child, she played business owner and boss quite frequently. She founded A Better Monday part time in 2016, fulfilling a lifelong dream of running a business.


I know from Amanda’s incredible partnership that she quickly elevates the work of the team and makes you a more effective, attentive, and strategic leader.

She integrates into teams quickly, accurately diagnoses the elements that allow teams and functions to thrive.

Amanda dives into challenging situations with compassionate directness – she will identify and call out the tough issues while immediately offering a solutions-oriented mindset that effectively moves everyone in a positive direction. I love her people-first approach, as happy thriving people are the key to success in any org.
