About me

Hi, I'm Karen Felton

My vision is that everyone is enabled to be their whole selves, and their best selves, at work.​ My mission is simply to enable you to be the best leader you can be.

I love inspiring people to be their best selves.

I first led a team when I was 23 and loved it. Being able to help people grow and seeing them thrive motivated me to learn about what makes people 'tick' - and this led me to a career in HR and a love for great leadership that enables people to be their best selves.

I learned a huge amount in my career as a people leader and an HR consultant; and I now use that learning alongside my passion to inspire people, to enable you to grow in your own people leader career.

In my career, I've built up a wealth of experience in enabling people to perform at their best.


Some of my favourite things have been:

I love using my strengths in my work - they help me feel energised and motivated.

This is how they'll show up for you when we work together:

Enabler, Change Agent & Improver:  This is about my passion for making a positive difference to people's lives.  I naturally see people's strengths, talents and achievements and where performance can be improved. I'll enable you to make those changes 

Legacy & Moral Compass:  I want to leave things better than I found them and nowhere is this more important than when it relates to people's lives.  I'll help you create an inspiring career and an inspiring workplace for you and your people

Innovation, Creativity & Personalisation:  I love solving problems and I approach this as 'designing' the right solution to meet your needs, which means you'll always get the right coaching programme and support to enable you to meet your goals.

Humour & Relationship builder: Together these help me to connect with people so I can get to really understand what you need.

Once I understood what my values are, and why, I realised that when I live and work in line with them life is easier and better. I know what I need to do, why and how. 

This is how they'll show up for you when we work together:


Honesty & integrity: I'll always deliver only what you need or want; and will never promise to deliver something I can't or that's not right for you.


Inclusion & compassion: These underpin great leadership in my experience and I'll use these values to enable you to really understand your own goals and learning needs, your people and their needs. 


Learning & growth: I love learning new things and using my learning to enable others to learn; so you'll get solutions that build on proven methods and you'll be able to sustain the benefits.

Collaboration: I enjoy working with people and truly believe this is how the best things happen! Working together we'll understand what you and your people need and create the right coaching programme to get your leadership capability and your leadership career where they need to be.

A bit more about me

I love to travel and have taken three career breaks, totalling several years, to travel overseas.  My last trip was Sept 2017 to May 2020,  in Asia and S America

As well as exploring and learning about new places I love meeting people - so many fascinating life stories and even with language differences I can always make connections 

I love fun and movement so I'm regularly out walking in hills or anywhere with great scenery; and I run, teach power yoga and will be back to learning aerial hoop after lockdown

And as part of my passion for enabling people to improve their lives alongside my love of fun and movement, I teach fitness to older adults and people with pain and mobility issues
