Dawnese Openshaw is a John Maxwell Certified Coach, Teacher, and Speaker
When individuals or organizations want to experience massive growth, there is one thing they see as the biggest hurdle but know must happen…CHANGE.
Dawnese’s strength is to facilitate change with the least amount of pain as possible. Often called a “catalyst for change,” Dawnese has found success in helping small businesses and non-profit organizations create and execute plans for growth. She does so by encouraging individuals to shine a light on their personal growth in parallel with their organizational growth. Through training and coaching, she assists individuals and organizations to maximize their influence and impact.
At the young age of 14, when she thought she knew everything, her wise father encouraged her to read Dale Carnegie’s “How to Win Friends and Influence People.” Hmmm, what was he trying to tell her? Whatever it was, it was from this book that Dawnese developed a sense of purpose and a sincere desire to teach others how to become great leaders.
Dawnese began her professional career as a Junior High School English Teacher, but quickly turned entrepreneur for more freedom and flexibility as she became the Mom of three. Balancing family and work, she has started, built, and sold businesses for over 20 years. Now she focuses on others and their businesses, sharing with them how to GROW.
