Lead like a coach

Leaders can double their engagement score, lighten their load and reduce pressure on themselves. Written as a practical guide for leaders who care about the people they lead, Lead like a coach shows how coaching refocuses how you engage with your team.

‘Irrespective of where you are in your career or how well you currently manage your team, Karen Morley offers all leaders an opportunity to revisit or hone their coaching skills. The content of Karen’s book so impressed me that I have ordered copies for every leader of people in my Division.’  Phil Turnbull, Executive General Manager, RACV

Leadership Coaching Circles

Peer-based Leadership Coaching Circles help leaders to incorporate coaching as an important part of how they lead. Leadership Coaching Circles magnify the value of leadership development by operating at five levels.

Through coaching circles, leaders learn coaching, while being coached, while coaching others, while building a coaching culture.

And by taking a generative approach with their team, leaders grow future leaders.

Realise your leadership potential.

Leadership Coaching helps you achieve your goals, increase your executive presence
and demonstrate greater leadership impact.

Gender Balanced Leadership: An Executive Guide

Gender Balanced Leadership will help you increase the number of senior women in your organisation. It profiles leading Australian and international companies, showing what they are doing to increase the number of women in senior leadership roles. It summarises key international research, identifying what works, and why.

The book identifies critical success factors to help you strategically focus your gender balanced leadership efforts.

Lead like a coach is a practical guide to refocus how leaders engage teams and get more done with less effort.

Karen Morley Realise your leadership potential

Do you have untapped leadership potential?

Do you feel ‘executive stress’ - more of the challenges and less of the benefits of leading?

Are you looking to be more strategic, and less focused on the day-to-day detail?

Is your team yet to achieve a reputation for high performance?

If any of these apply to you, I can help. I coach leaders to be successful.

The work of leadership is now more challenging than ever before. Leaders are under great pressure to produce results at a faster pace, with fewer resources and less certainty. Many are overworked, and feel overburdened.

My mission is to change that! My goal is to help leaders to be exceptional. To be leaders everyone wants to work with, who bring out the best in others, and who get great results.

As an Executive Coach, I find it inspiring to coach individually. Group and team coaching can be even more powerful than individual coaching. Leaders who develop their capability and their own coaching style collaboratively with others, magnify the impact of development, double engagement and get twice as much done.

The thing that really lights me up is helping leaders to realise their full potential. I see myself as being like Michelangelo: he saw the angel within the marble and he carved until he set it free. I work with the potential hidden in each leader. I help shape you into the very best version of yourself.

I have extensive experience working with leaders, supporting and guiding their development. Get in touch to find out how you can achieve greater leadership success.
