ASCENT Programs & Workshops

ASCENT's mission is to build transformational leaders. Transformational leaders are purposeful, values-based, visionary, ethical and inspiring. They strive for increased self-awareness through continuously seeking feedback from all sources and 

incorporating this feedback into their development. They identify needed change in organizations and enroll others in co-creating the desired future state.


ASCENT programs & workshops help individuals at all levels understand the thinking and behavior behind their results. Our thinking and behaviors can become the hard-wired ways we approach our work and life that often can go unexamined. ASCENT seeks to help leaders remove the mystery of the impact they are having on those they lead. Awareness helps us close the gap between our intent (how we think and hope we're showing up) and our impact (how others experience us).


ASCENT is committed to continuous learning that serves the evolving needs of the public both now and into the future.
