About Me

My passion is helping you realise your leadership potential. I help executives and organisations to be their very best. The best leaders use everyone’s talents to the full, and my programs promote inclusive leadership strategies and practices. I am an authority on the benefits of gender balanced leadership and how to help women to succeed in senior organisational roles.

Work experience


Karen Morley & Associates

January 2009 - Present | Melbourne, Australia

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.

The thing that really lights me up is helping leaders to realize 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. I specialize in:

* Executive coaching

* Leadership facilitation

* Gender balanced leadership

* Unconscious bias

My practice is informed by the latest evidence, which I share through a range of research and working papers. Download working papers and insights into leadership on my website karenmorley.com.au.

The kinds of organisations I’ve worked with recently include Allens, ANSVAR, BHP Billiton, Coles, College of Optometry, Commonwealth Bank, CSL, CUB, KPMG, Lendlease, Lumleys, Melbourne Water, Orica, QBE, Queensland Sugar, Rural Finance, UGL, University of Melbourne and Wesfarmers.
