Making The Ordinary Extraordinary, Fortune 500 Trainer Offers Wisdom to Women in Business

"Our greatest advantage in today’s market is to move beyond the ordinary and stand firmly in the extraordinary, which embraces innovative business practices as well as prioritizing our personal ‘thrival’. "

So says Rachael Dexheimer, a Fortune 500 trainer and executive coach who will be the featured speaker for the Alliance of Women Owned Businesses' monthly Power Series program on July 9 at The Inn at Gig Harbor. Registration for the event opens at 4:30 pm with the meeting and program from 5 to 6:30, followed by a no-host dinner in The Inn's Heritage Restaurant.

Rachel says she learned the lessons of success by tapping into her own strengths and trusting her inner wisdom. "It is not just about offering a quality product," she claims. "It is about how we 'show up' with our clients and customers." She has created a unique framework that allows her to consciously connect with clients and she shares some of the thinking that created that framework.

Before building her own coaching and consulting business, Dexheimer spent 18 years thriving in the cultural and technical complexities of Fortune 500 companies such as Lucent, Avaya, United Parcel Service, and McCaw Cellular. Her favorite roles included designing, creating, and leading extraordinary global teams. These teams implemented multi-million dollar projects across the country and around the world.

AWOB Power Series meetings are free to members and first-time guests. The fee is $25 for all others, payable at the door.
