Kellogg School of Management
Adjunct Lecturer of MBA Leadership Coaching

Brooke Olson Vuckovic's career has been focused on helping executives define their purpose and presence as leaders; stretching them to become more focused, non-reactive and clear on who they are, where they're going, why they lead, and what the circumstances they face demand of them.

Dr. Vuckovic teaches leadership coaching to Kellogg's full-time MBA students and has co-developed coaching programs for multiple Executive Education programs. In addition to being the co-academic director for "Leading the Family Enterprise," Dr. Vuckovic teaches in many of the leadership programs offered through Kellogg's Allen Center and the Center for Nonprofit Management. Outside of Kellogg, Dr. Vuckovic has an executive coaching practice working with senior executives.

Dr. Vuckovic's approach to coaching and leadership development is informed by her multi-disciplinary background. She received her MA and PhD from the University of Chicago, where she also taught in the University of Chicago Booth School of Business's popular Business Communications program. Her research focused on how "narrative" and "story telling" helps individuals define who they are and what is most important to them and their communities (a theme she returns to again and again in teaching and coaching insofar as powerful story telling relates to powerful leadership). Dr. Vuckovic's professional background was in adult-education and development. Her experiences include executive positions at Cardean University, whose online MBA program was developed with Columbia University Business School, Stanford University, London School of Economics, and the University of Chicago's Graduate School of Business.
