Managing Principal

“The door to leadership opens inward.”

~ Ellen Fulton

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 actions 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 visionary results. 


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


As Associate Faculty at George Mason University’s Center for the Advancement of Well-Being and Managing Principal of the Washington Coaching Group, Ellen Fulton has stepped up to create and lead a number of outstanding educational opportunities in leadership development and coach education. Having served as Co-Director for the Advanced Coaching Program in Leadership and Well-Being and Director of the Mason Institute for Leadership Excellence, Ellen is thrilled to be serving as the MCC Director of Training for George Mason’s newest professional certificate in Leadership Coaching for Organizational Well-Being and launching an additional program for Professional Coaches aiming to become Master Certified Coaches.


Educated as a coach at Georgetown University, and supported by her two degrees in counseling, Ellen received her Master Coaching Certification through the International Coach Federation (ICF). Her work leads her into a variety of industries, including the federal government, corporations, small businesses, non-profits, and universities. One personally fulfilling project she co-created was a coaching program for the participants of an inner city, non-profit organization that provides skilled job preparation and placement services to ex-offenders, welfare recipients, immigrants, and the homeless. In her free time, Ellen is an avid scuba diver with her Master Diver Certification. In the future she would like to combine her passion for diving and coaching to create experiential learning opportunities for leaders to cultivate their awareness through lessons from the deep.
