Michelle Johansen MA ,PCC
Leadership Coach, Group Facilitator and Founder of WDF

Cato and Michelle are previous providers of the Effective Leadership Module on the GTA  Southampton University MBA programme

“Michelle's sessions provide a relaxed and friendly environment with groups small enough to quickly build relationships with the ladies attending. Any emotional barriers are dissolved, divulging experiences and thoughts in a supportive and confidential forum. The experience has enabled me to understand how best to maximise my teams potential as well as improve my approach. More importantly it has cemented the fact that we all have similar insecurities that can be resolved and overcome. I hope to continue with the friendships I have formed over the year.”
