I’m Michelle Johns

The coach you’ve been looking for
I spent over 25 years leading teams in the corporate world thinking I had to change who I was to land the next promotion – only to realise the most important thing is staying true to yourself, and learning how to utilise your own strengths and experience.

Whether you want to lead a team, a business, a community, or yourself – Michelle Johns has something for you.

Often people find themselves in leadership roles because of their technical skills, but aren’t provided with the training or coaching they need to be effective. This leads to self-doubt, loss of confidence, and constant feelings of being overwhelmed. I provide coaching services that meet you where you’re at and help you overcome these feelings.

Throughout my 25 years of experience working in corporates I invested in myself through a combination of professional development, coaching and mentoring. Now I bring this expertise to emerging leaders, helping them avoid the mistakes I made and fast track their leadership careers.

During my time in the corporate world I experienced many of the challenges women face in the workplace. I've dealt with my own self-doubt and I know how inescapable it can feel - but I assure you, it's possible to emerge on the other side!

I've provided support to women all over Australia as they take the next step in their leadership career, working with women who are introverts, extroverts, and everything in between!

Michelle’s tools helped me deal with difficult work situations

The 8 weeks spent as part of Braveheart’s Leadership Program with Michelle Johns helped me to answer the question - ‘where do I want to be in the future?’

Michelle’s insights and experience throughout the course helped to provide comfort and direction to help me navigate my career, and align my values with where I want to be.

The group mentoring sessions, were a valuable source of talking through case examples and sharing peoples ‘difficult situations’, in a supportive environment. It also provided a great opportunity to network with other females from different industries in a very supportive environment.

The tools and insights provided as part of the program are a valuable source for setting foundations for my future career aspirations, but also to help deal with difficult situations I am currently experience.

My Values and Beliefs

Arrow icon for Braveheart Coach.


I believe that in this new era of leadership we need a balance of feminine and masculine energy. I want women to recognise that they have what it takes to lead, that they can stop trying to fix themselves and instead become the best version of the person they already are. I want to change the balance of women in leadership roles, and help those already in leadership roles to feel more confident in their abilities.
Arrow icon for Braveheart Coach.


Confidence comes from having the courage to do things we’ve never done before. It means getting comfortable with how we feel when we leave our comfort zone. I teach you how to recognise these feelings, and strategies to do it anyway!
Arrow icon for Braveheart Coach.


We live in an era that craves compassionate leadership. We need more compassion in the boardroom and throughout the corporate world. I help women build the confidence to lead without feeling the need to become “one of the boys”.
