keith s. greer, L.C.S.W., A.C.C., C.L.C.

I am a life/leadership coach, family therapist, school social worker, speaker and trainer who brings 30 years of experience to my compassionate, creative and influential work with teens, young adults and adults.

I have provided speaking/training services on the local, state and national level on a variety of topics including effective communication, adolescent development, addiction and recovery issues, parenting and individual and family wellness. I have been an adjunct faculty member at both the Rochester Institute of Technology and Nazareth College where I have created and taught courses on addiction and family therapy. I am a graduate of the Syracuse University School of Social Work and the Institute for Life Coach Training. I am both a member of, and certified by, the International Coaching Federation, which is the leading global organization committed to advancing the coaching profession.

As a Certified PeopleMap Trainer, I uses the power of the PeopleMap System to help teens and adults gain a better understanding of both their inherent communication preferences and personal strengths, utilizing this information toward the creation of enhanced communication, leadership and performance skills. Much of my work in this area is directed toward athletes and their parents, coaches and camps, working with individuals, teams and groups.

My clients also benefit from access to the Wellness Inventory, a cutting edge, online, whole person wellness assessment program.

As a school social worker for over 25 years with the Webster School District, I have been intricately involved in the creation of alcohol/other drug policy and procedure for both the general student population as well as for the student-athlete population. In addition, I have created and facilitated training programs for district athletic coaches and faculty in the areas of effective communication/leadership, wellness and alcohol/other drug use issues.

I have coached a variety of youth sports including baseball, soccer and ice hockey and am presently a coach for the Rochester Ice Cats, a member team of American Special Hockey. My own sense of wellness is pursued through involvement in a number of athletic outlets from hockey to hiking to golf, and I would describe my participation in these activities as one of “great passion and limited skill.”

My wife, Carol, and I have two teenage children.

I am available to groups, organizations, businesses and schools as a keynote speaker and trainer. I am proud of my reputation as a highly effective, passionate and enthusiastic speaker who brings a sense of warmth, energy and humor to all of my presentations.
