Pre-requisite: Unleash The Leader Within & Ascend

Hi. I'm Carol Ann Knight, here to help you transform yourself and your career.


Did I ever tell you that my 1st personal development book was Cinderella?

I must have read that book at least 957 times as a child.

Most girls my age were obsessed with the Prince. The glamour. The ball. The gown.

I was obsessed by the transformation. Cinderella. The fairy godmother. The magic wand.

Cinderella's evolution from an over-worked and mistreated servant to a confident and radiant princess lit a spark in me that never went out.

Her transformation - both internal and external - underscored her inner strength and determination to rise above her circumstances and step into a new phase of her life.

Fast-forward many years later, and I graduated from Cornell University with a degree in Mathematics. I'm employed as an Actuarial Consultant by PricewaterhouseCoopers and Deloitte. The work was exciting, fast-paced, with long hours, several bosses and a multitude of deliverables, and it was here that I found myself leaning into personal development to help me manage myself and my stress level.

I also saw first-hand how self-awareness and the management of the cognitive-emotional state (or more precisely, the lack thereof) impacted the leadership, performance and decision-making of my colleagues and me. This interested me so much that I became certified as a Hypnosis and Neuro-linguistic Programming Master Practitioner. I also pursued training in behavioral, cognitive and somatic-based areas to identify how people are internally organized, the body-based markers of high performance states, and the essentials of elite performance.

My fascination with the alchemy of human potential led me down a rabbit hole, and I ended up taking classes and studying many disciplines including leadership, accelerated learning, spirituality, sacred geometry, neuroscience, sound healing, quantum physics, meta-physics, systems thinking, and guess what? They all led me back to Personal Development/Personal Mastery as a core element in a person's success AND fulfillment. Thanks, Cinderella!

Today, I call myself a Personal Mastery Executive Coach, because I know that if I help clients improve their personal mastery, they will be able to navigate their lives, both personally and professionally, with more joy, grace and ease.
