Hello, my name is Karen Diffey and I’m a Leadership Coach.


I help aspiring leaders use their strengths to uplevel and reach their potential.


I will help you:
👉 focus on yourself (all success starts with you) and your leadership development
👉 realise your true potential
👉 develop a high level of self-awareness
👉 perform at your best
👉 feel inspired and supported to move to the next level


I get it.

My journey to become an Accredited Coach Practitioner has involved a huge leap of faith in my own capabilities, motives, creativity and values.

Outwardly, I was confident.  I put on a good show.  Inwardly, I struggled with self-worth.

By owning what I’m already good at, I get to do more of what engages and motivates me, giving me greater confidence to  achieve my goals.

I am passionately committed to building your leadership capabilities and can help you own your zone of genius too.

I consistently invest in myself and my professional development because you deserve the best.  Here’s a summary:

MBA (Open University), Accredited Coach Practitioner (Worcester University), Member of the Association for Coaching, Strengthscope® Practitioner and StrengthscopeLeader, Fellow of the Chartered Management Institute and Mentor for Business Wales.

Over 15 years senior leadership experience, including 10 years as a Finance and Business Director. I have developed an extensive strategic change knowledge base to challenge existing practice and explore new opportunities.

Clients describe me as intuitive, insightful, calm and a guiding light to clarity.  I have an open, measured approach which will support you as you explore potentially difficult topics.  I am able to bring a rational, pragmatism to bear, whilst demonstrating warmth and empathy.

That doesn’t mean working with me is a soft option.  I’ll hold you to account, challenge your thinking, play devil’s advocate and be the best support you’ve experienced.

I’ll challenge your performance risks in a productive and positive way, to increase your adaptability, enthusiasm, creativity and confidence.

Releasing your limiting beliefs and removing barriers to change, helping you thrive in an ever changing environment.


I’ll hold the mirror up to help you see the leader you want to be.
Would it make sense for us to have a conversation?
