Welcome to Ethical Ascendancy



Hello, I'm Cathy and I believe the world is going to hell in a handcart

Steve Jobs once said "people who are crazy enough to want to change the world usually do"

I'm a coach, trainer and facilitator with over 30 years' experience in Leadership and Personal Development

I believe the world is in desperate need of authentic, emotionally intelligent, values-based leadership at all levels

So if you're crazy enough to want to take a lead and change the world, I'm crazy enough to want to help you 


If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, become more, you are a leader

John Quincy Adams
