Laura Dewey M.A.
Professionally: I've been leading, teaching or coaching in one way or another since the mid-80s
I broke glass ceilings by becoming the first female general manager, multi-unit leader, then partner of a leading restaurant company once considered the Nordstrom of casual dinning. My ability to create effective training and operations systems made me a key player in growing the company from six regional restaurants to 145, nationwide. Always considered a developer of people, I know first-hand that the easiest road to growing long-term sales and profit is through cultivating a happy, aligned and invested team.
After receiving my Master’s Degree in Spiritual Psychology, I left restaurants and went on to found Laura Dewey Coaching, LLC, serving businesses and individuals; specializing in the skills of emotional intelligence.
Personally: I have first-hand experience with remarkable transformation
Most of what is written above happened when I was a highly functional alcoholic. During that time I was able to build an amazingly successful career, but my personal life was in a shambles. I was incredibly closed off to the world and had virtually no close relationships. Committed romantic relationships were for other people, not me. Truth be told I was afraid to be close to anyone for fear that if I was, they would see me for the fatally flawed person I believed myself to be.
All of that changed when I got sober in late 2003. There began my path to recovery and personal growth as a whole. I began to question everything I thought to be true about myself and the world. I learned how to to accept myself, perceived faults and all. I learned real skills to take responsibility for the quality of my life and relationships. As a result of this work, I met the love of my life, my husband Alfred.
The lessons learned through sobriety made me a whole person. My studies in Spiritual Psychology took that foundation and ran with it. Not only do I have remarkable ways to improve my own life, I have the skills, ability and experience to drastically improve the lives of others.
When people work with me, their lives get better. Remarkably better.
That's why I do what I do. For me it's about seeing the light bulb go on...the moment of recognition when someone realizes their life will never be the same. When they understand that their heartfelt dream isn't just a dream...it's a reality.
I've invested a great deal of time, energy and resources into preparing myself for this, my life's work. Indeed I have a B.A. in Education, an M.A. in Spiritual Psychology and an advanced coaching certification...but I bet all you really want to know is:
"Can you help me?"
