A Personal Message from Dr Karen Morley

“This is a strange and confronting time for many of us, in light of the uncertainties due to the very real threat of COVID-19.

I’m here to tell you that this is, in fact, the perfect time to focus on yourself and think about your career, where you want to go, and what kind of leader you want to be on the other side of this.

There may be many uncertainties, but when you can, make sure you make use of this time to explore opportunities that will allow you to continue to learn.

I’m running everything online and writing as much as I can to help as many people as I can during this time.

Here on my website, you’ll find a treasure trove of downloadable resources, videos, and invitations to participate in webinars, and you could also check out my podcast too. All of my programs are now available online, and coaching is conducted via Zoom so there’s no need to stop learning!

In your moments of calm, take the time to foster your learning, stay brain-fit, and be ready to roll at your next available opportunity.

I wish you and your community all the very best, and please do not hesitate to reach out if I can help in any way.”




More impact, less effort

My vision is to amplify leadership impact. 

The demands on leadership are ever-increasing. To meet those demands, organisations need more from their leaders, and they need it now! But more often translates into more effort. Longer agendas, more things to do, more meetings, the list goes on!

Leaders end up overburdened, stressed and stuck too far down in the detail. They know they’re not as effective as they could or want to be, yet there’s not enough time to shift the game.

To shift the game, they need to focus on what’s strategic and impactful. To get the effort to impact ratio right, leaders need to be productive, motivated and influential. They need to:

  • continuously learn so that they can be their best within a fast-paced world
  • work smart to capably manage their energy and resilience
  • have the time and skills to connect meaningfully with their colleagues to collaborate powerfully

I work with individual leaders, teams and organisations using highly targeted interventions that help you get more impact for less effort. 

I deliver evidence-based interventions in these areas:



  • Increasing peer-based collaboration, to use power for good and harness collective intelligence  - workshop and peer-based coaching circles  programs


  • Increasing gender inclusion - I consult with senior leaders and organisations that want a fairer workplace


  • Promoting inclusive leadership, to recognise uniqueness, unite across differences and make workplaces better for everyone – I consult with senior leaders on how to promote a culture of inclusion, and provide workshop programs for leaders

If only we'd been better at practicing for this...... now we dive into remote work without the floaties! One of the challenges of remote working is that we are sitting in front of a screen - so much like a TV. The brain says this is an inanimate object, it's not...

Mike felt the tingle of revelation. Then the opposing thud of self-recrimination. ‘But I already knew that’, he said. ‘I can’t believe I’m just now figuring it out.’ That sure sounds like an insight! Mike wanted to shift the quality of a couple of relationships he had...
