An Independent Certified Coach, Teacher, Trainer and Speaker with The John Maxwell Team

About Ella Clark

As a John Maxwell Certified Coach, Teacher, Trainer and Speaker, I can offer you workshops, seminars, keynote speaking, and coaching, aiding your personal and professional growth through study and practical application of John’s proven leadership methods. Working together, I will move you and/or your team or organization in the desired direction to reach your goals.


My positive outlook on life and passion for helping others maximize their potential led me to join the John Maxwell Team. Prior to joining the team, I spent over 30 years in Corporate America in challenging leadership roles including economic development, marketing, customer service, training and supplier diversity. I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Finance from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga; an Executive Leadership Certificate from Vanderbilt, Owen Graduate School in Nashville; and certifications as a business coach through CoachU, an executive coach through Sherpa Leadership Summit in Ohio, and a career coach through the Professional Association of Career Coaches.


My latest achievement is as the founder and president of The Clark Group, LLC, a dynamic business coaching, consulting and leadership development training company specializing in connecting leaders, teams, and organizations seeking to improve their leadership effectiveness and performance. For more than 40 years, I have devoted myself to developing, coaching and training leaders at all levels. I am dedicated to adding value to my clients and displaying a down to earth, direct and open coaching and teaching style. I utilize a proven process to inspire clients to build on their strengths, minimize weakness and move forward with a growth plan combined with the accountability of my professional coaching. I have personally used these tools to enhance my own professional development, leadership effectiveness, and relationship-building skills to create an intentional life of significance.
