Ellen Fulton

Executive Coach


I work with people to improve their intellectual and emotional flexibility while increasing awareness around leadership presence.  People who enjoy working with me have the desire to lead robustly and inspire through language, actions, and results. I challenge clients to reflect on their strengths, areas for growth, values, and interpersonal skills to help them align action plans that maximize strategic goals providing sustainable change.


Ellen Fulton’s mission is to elevate the conversations leaders are having in the world, build a more robust perspective, and equip organizations to take action to maximize their strategic goals. She challenges clients to do their own inner work with the understanding that a leader’s success is directly proportional to their self-awareness. Aligning strengths, clarifying values, and building the embodiment of effective communications are key underlining themes that prevail in coaching leaders to achieve visionary results.

As a Master Certified executive leadership coach, she has extensive experience working with leaders in government, corporations, small businesses, non-profits, universities, and public school systems. Ellen has worked with over 1,000 individuals and teams across all levels of leadership, including C-Suite, SES, VP, mid-level managers, and individual contributors.
