Cathy Mauk

Cathy Mauk has been a consultant, facilitator and coach since 1994. She is based in Canberra with clients across Australia.


As a consultant Cathy has provided

  • review and evaluation

  • change management
  • advisory services

to executive levels of management across the Australian Public Sector, state governments, not-for-profit and private sectors and internationally.

She is well regarded for her ability to synthesise information and for her conceptual thinking.


Workshop Facilitation has been a key business focus for the past 8 years.  Hundreds of individuals have participated in workshops Cathy has designed and led on:

  • leadership and management
  • team dynamics
  • self awareness
  • having difficult conversations
  • emotional intelligence
  • managing change
  • strategic thinking
  • strategic and business planning

She is recognised as an engaging, pragmatic and insightful facilitator.


Coaching was originally a natural adjunct to consulting and facilitation.  But through her years of working with people, Cathy has come to realise that her most rewarding work is supporting people to define and live their own version of a meaningful life.

She is a perceptive, empathetic and creative coach who helps her clients discover and capitalise on the best in themselves.

Her coaching clients have included leaders and emerging leaders from a range of fields, including: government, environment, children’s services, academia, health care, disability, technology, law, law enforcement, and science.

Her coaching clients also include individuals in the middle of life and career transitions, those interested in exploring what gives their lives meaning, and those in the arts who want support for their creative projects and lifestyle.
