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

Achieve gender-balanced leadership

Gender Balanced Leadership: An Executive Guide 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.

“My advice is to read Karen’s excellent book. Within “Gender Balanced Leadership”, you will find a practical guide to help turn your organisation around.” Peter Wilson AM Chairman, Australian Human Resources Institute

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.

How to play a better part in psychological safety

Advocating for inclusion is the best way to get it

Small acts of advocacy are all it takes to make a social movement. The #metoo movement was for the 12 years prior to last year’s Harvey Weinstein scandal a very small force for change. It wasn’t one single event that caused the social explosion. But it was...
