Michael Papanek - Coaching & Consulting


Everyone loves experiments. After years of 1:1 and team counseling with business leaders and Fortune 100 companies, I’m launching an experiment to help you be a better leader, communicator and team builder.



ProfM is powered by the ideas of leadership coach and organizational consultant Michael Papanek, and his grandfather, social psychologist Kurt Lewin. Because his research and guidance has helped many through coaching sessions, he thought “what if” I could encapsulate the lessons into a digital mentor. ProfM is your mentor when Michael is not around.
