Then this course is for you.
When you learn to listen well, a whole new world can open up to you...a world of deeper understanding, richer relationships, real connection, trust & respect, win-win solutions, deeper sharing, increased nuance, fewer misunderstandings & arguments, fewer mistakes and less rework. In short, what I like to call: More love, more peace & more money.

This course is for you if you are willing to try something new, courageous enough to show up differently in the world, open to learning new things and committed enough to complete the coursework.
Expect an engaged instructor, a mix of video styles, a jargon-free course taught in plain English, three quizzes to help anchor your learning, access to a follow-along workbook/journal, information, encouragement & the potential for great transformation.
You will have the flexibility to complete the course at your own pace, though it is recommended that you move through it from start to finish, without long breaks. If you are simply seeking information about how to become a better listener, you can complete the course in about 2 hours. If you want to transform yourself as a listener, that will take a greater commitment. There are eight assignments and you may take as long as you need for each one; this could be hours, days or weeks. Your choice. For maximum benefit, consider taking a week to practice each skill. In that case, the course will take about six weeks to complete. Proceed at the speed of you.
Laura continuously broke glass ceilings by being the first female general manager, multi-unit leader, and partner of a leading restaurant company once considered the Nordstrom of casual dinning. Her ability to create effective training and operations systems made her a key player in growing the company from six Southern California based restaurants to 145, nationwide. Laura has always been considered a developer of people and knows first-hand that the easiest road to growing long-term sales and profit is through cultivating a happy, aligned, and invested team.
That was a fine life, even extraordinary, until two events changed the course of her life forever: her recovery from alcoholism, and later, her master's degree in Spiritual Psychology. There, she found a whole new way of being in the world…an inside-out approach. Instead of being rocked by outer circumstances, she learned skills of self-mastery and began to live life with ease and grace rather than fear and struggle. Basically, she learned “the stuff no one taught us in school."
Laura spent a small fortune on her education but believes that people of all economic levels need access to this life-changing information if they want it. As a result, she went on to found Laura Dewey Coaching, LLC and is now a passionate coach, speaker, course designer, and workshop facilitator.
Her first book, Shine Your Light…Illuminate Your Love, chronicles her rocky road to from addiction and insecurity to strength, self-acceptance and eventually to finding the love of her life; find it on Amazon.
