Karen Morley – My Coaching Approach

Coaching helps leaders to work smarter, influence more authoritatively and use their talents to their fullest extent. I work with talented leaders across the career spectrum; leaders who are stepping up into more senior roles, who seek to be more authoritative and influential, who want to increase team performance or who seek to be more strategic and less caught up in day-to-day busyness.

Coaching outcomes include – a clearer leadership identity and more comfort dealing with their own authority, a better mix of the strategic and operational, higher levels of team performance, clearer career goals, a more flexible leadership style and a more mindful approach to the challenges of leading.

I was very fortunate to have Dr Karen Morley as my coach as I worked towards a promotion. My success was due in many ways to Karen’s sage advice and direction. Her coaching style was particularly helpful for seeing straight to the heart of the issue. I appreciated Karen’s warm, positive, and  supportive style.

I would recommend Karen to anyone – at any stage of his or her career- looking for advice or coaching on how to lead better, be better, and most importantly, with our whole selves.”
