About

Hi, I’m Dawn

I am filled with wanderlust that I got from my dad as a child. My amazing husband of over 24 years says, “You are at your happiest when you are packing your bags to go somewhere,” acknowledging my love of adventure. The past three years have been quite a ride, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to support the clients I work with.

I focus on helping executives and organizations successfully integrate new leaders into the hearts and minds of their teams. My passion for serving my clients and watching them light up in the discovery of what is next, transition into their dream job, and helping them navigate a new role and or a new organization is what motivates me every day.

I’ve supported over 200 leaders rise to new challenges and am blessed to create a transformative experience in their lives.

    Marlin Williams

    Founder of Sisters Code & Highland Park Community Kitchen

    I was hired as the inaugural DEI officer at StockX with the opportunity to create the organization’s DEI Strategy. I did not have a formal internal team and from past experience, I was confident that Dawn would be the perfect partner. After a formal listening tour Dawn worked with our team to analyze the data to create the most efficient way forward.

    Dawn did not serve as a “consultant” she served as a thought partner as she utilized her stellar organizational development skills to help our organization solidify our DEI Pillars and Diversity Council.

    Dawn is the ultimate professional and I would definitely work with her again.

    Private Chef

    I’m so grateful that I came into contact with Dawn Poteau! She has been so helpful and supportive of me during a time of transition in my career. She shared so many contacts with me of people from diverse backgrounds that might offer me support. Dawn truly is a “Professional Matchmaker”! She has such an optimistic and caring personality and talking to her in our Zoom meetings gave me such a confidence boost. She also provided me with really unique ideas about visualizing myself in an ideal role with a company and actually working with clients and noting personal qualities and strengths of mine that I would bring to a company with my background and experience in the culinary field and in managerial positions that I’ve held.

    What a wonderful woman with such unique talents with helping people land “dream jobs! I would absolutely recommend Dawn to anyone looking for a fantastic coach when planning to transition into a new role in the career space or for leaders and executives that need to hire the ideal employee for a position.

    What a great feeling to have the opportunity to work with someone that is so terrific at what she does!
