- As a manager, is it challenging to build positive relationships and cohesion amongst your team? Managers have the potential not only to lead a team in getting the work done, but also create a safe environment where every team member feels respected and valued. I'm Vanessa Womack and I have 25 years of consulting and 10 years of adult higher education experiences. I also have experience in community leadership and dialog training that has afforded me opportunities to facilitate and coach others in multicultural classrooms and community spaces.
