I am a career coach certified in both the CliftonStrengths and MBTI. I coach professionals in the healthcare industry and college students to leverage their unique talent themes to reach their professional goals with clarity and productivity. My expertise is twofold. With certifications in other career assessments, I help clients who feel stuck in their current careers and need to clarify a more fulfilling career path. With changing life roles, our values may have shifted, which need clarity while considering given marketplace trends (as shown on www.O*Net). I also maximize individual and team talent themes for meaningful success and well-being.
While innovation and technology are influencing all sectors of the economy, my mission is to help teams and individuals maximize the best of who they already are and deliver their unique contributions to build a trusting and effective community engagement. I believe innovation is most valuable when the the outcomes deliver a positive impact for humanity, not just individuals. To achieve this, I help individuals develop their raw talents to a mature level of performance that's beneficial to all.
I have been honored the 2016-2017 Woman of the Year Award with NAPW because of my commitment and leadership to my profession.
My deep passion to become a CliftonStrengths coach evolved from my first career as a school psychologist. As a school psychologist, I routinely saw students disengaged from their educational programs, which resulted in my concern for their transition to college and later employability. Therefore, to help all professionals increase engagement and students to attain their educational goals, I furthered my education in Career Education and Counseling. I also became certified in CliftonStrengths, MBTI and the Strong Interest Inventory to create the most positive impact in my coaching sessions with professionals and students. I should also note that I am an avid painter.
With Maximizer being my first theme on the StrengthsFinder, I am hard-wired to leverage on your talent themes. I am energized by helping both professionals and students achieve professional breakthroughs through the lens of Strengths. This insightful discovery occurred when I received a customized report, igniting a transformation in my personal development, my career, and my purpose. I look forward to your transformation with CliftonStrengths.
I'm excited to help young business professionals and corporate teams reach their greatest potential. As a Strengths Strategy Certified Coach, I am equipped with the tools and skills to help facilitate powerful personal discovery and transformation that leads to higher performance. My goal as a coach is to create a safe space for you to discover how to keep your strengths out of toxicity and in the A+ Zone.
If you are anxious to discover and connect to your unique purpose, leverage your strengths to deepen your impact, and improve your overall well-being and happiness, I want to work with you!
As a consultant at VF Corporation (Vans, Timberland, The North Face, etc), I facilitated team-building workshops with executive and retail teams across the US. While the Director of HR & Operations at Safe Harbor Crisis Center, a nonprofit providing advocacy and shelter service to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, I rolled out a strengths-based curriculum and provided one-on-one coaching to advocates and administrative staff. As the Talent Manager at Reckitt Benckiser (Lysol, Mucinex, Durex, etc), I've provided coaching and team-building consulting to cross-functional teams in the CPG industry. As an independent contractor, I've provided coaching and workshop facilitation to individuals and teams all over Utah and North Carolina.
I am an LGBTQ+ activist, recruiter, employee engagement specialist, training designer, performer, public speaker, facilitator, millennial, video content creator, singer, athlete, fundraiser, nonprofit board member, and life coach.
In 2010, I attended a workshop on the Gallup Campus as part of the Special Olympics National Youth Activation Summit. Having taken the CliftonStrengths assessment prior to attending, I was already amazed at how accurate it was and how well it described me. During the workshop I had the opportunity to understand even more about the assessment, about the potential impact, and how it could be used for individuals as well as teams.
Being so impressed by my experience there, I purchased a dozen StrengthsFinder 2.0 books and passed them out to my team at Special Olympics North Carolina. All of my staff and interns took the assessment and we started our journey into being a strengths-based team. We began to work together more effectively and not just meet but surpass goals year after year. After seeing the success with my team, the rest of the Special Olympics North Carolina staff took the assessment as well as the statewide Youth Council.
In 2013 I was one of the first 100 students in Gallup's Accelerated Strengths Coaching class and earned my certification as a Gallup Certified Strengths Coach. I've had the pleasure of working with clients of all ages - teens to adults - and all professions - from front line and technical staff to executive teams and boards. In 2018, I was also trained in Employee Engagement using the Q12 assessment and process as well as the Builder Profile 10 for Entrepreneurs.
Moving to Colorado in 2016 I started Pikes Peak Coaching & Consulting to spread the benefits of strengths based teams and coaching to the Pikes Peak Region, Colorado and the rest of the mountain states.

For a period of over 30 years, first as a corporate human resource management professional, more recently as a university professor, and now as a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach, a major part of my mission has been assisting individuals in the process of ‘learning how to learn.’ That endeavor has been characterized by a tripartite philosophy of teaching/education that views education as the key to knowledge, knowledge as the key to understanding, and understanding as the key to our continued collective existence. In service of that philosophy I take an approach to coaching that focuses on collaboratively helping clients learn to discover knowledge, rather than relying on a training model or rote learning, and strive to accomplish learning objectives within an environment of mutual respect and dignity. I look forward to partnering with you to achieve your goals!

I am in the superpower business. I help people name their talents, take ownership of them and then use them to do amazing things.
I am a Strengths sherpa. I help amazing people find their way by exploiting the talents they possess. I help them see the path forward, select and haul some of the tools while noting their successes and recommending ways to work past stuff that gets in the way.
I am especially interested in working with:
1. People at a transformational point who are trying to figure out what's next, like job seekers, career changers and those who feel stuck.
2. Organizations who want staff to be happier, more effective and more engaged. I have done this with government, libraries and non-profits.
3. Anyone desirous to be more aligned with their hows and whys.
I used to be a research librarian. I have a knack for helping people figure out the questions they are trying to ask and then helping find the resource that hold the answers. It's a librarian thing.
I used to be a Mariner. I have been in the middle of the ocean and found my way with the stars, a sextant and a compass. Now I help people find their way with their Strengths, desire and effort. It's a navigator thing.
So if you want to release your superpowers and you need a coach, a sherpa, a researcher, a navigator, then we need to talk.
This is one of my favorite testimonials: "Lorraine McCamley has helped me better understand my Strength Themes and put a plan in place to better express these themes. I really like how Lorraine uses her past work experiences and perspectives to provide advice that comes from the 'trenches.' In a world where 'everyone' seems to be a consultant, it is refreshing to work with one who has actually been out in the work force 'taking arrows' and then calling on those experiences to bring the CliftonStrengths tools to life. Thank you Lorraine!" Greg I., business owner

Wouldn't be great to have employees:
Who are engaged at work and come to work every day and deliver quality results
Who come to work and don't want to leave you for the competition or another industry
Who brag to their friends and family about how much they enjoy working with you and the outstanding results they produce.
Who actively recruit people to come to work at your organization
They have fewer sick days and you have less unwanted turnover from people leaving your organization
They have a special bond with their manager
Provide tools for you to see your performance gaps and how you can wage war against the mundane, status quo and "this is the way its always been done" mindset, and win turning your organization into one that stands out in the marketplace. Peter Drucker said 'What gets measured gets done'. You have tools in place to measure the meaningful change as you increase productivity through your organizational strengths.
These are some of the things delivered to you when we work together to increase performance through working from strengths

As a small town Kentucky girl, I began my career as a counter manager with one of the largest beauty brands. For more than thirty years I grew with this family company, experiencing the transformative power of developing others through education and leadership development. As Global Head of Education for a billion dollar corporation, I had exposure to varying levels of effective education. During my career I was sold education that didn’t quite hit the mark: lecture-heavy workshops with little to no learner engagement and no behavior change back on the job. As a result, my team had to create talent development programs from scratch--programs that were known as the best in the industry. Since starting my company, potential., we have become known for delivering education programs centered around dynamic, hands-on experiences that transform people, teams and organizations. Today, I’m joined by a best-in-class team of facilitators and coaches who set out to empower individuals to achieve their greatest potential.
Some of my clients include: The Library of Congress, Creative Artists Agency, American Express, Giorgio Armani Beauty, PBS, Survey Monkey, Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior Couture, Fresh Cosmetics, BAE Systems, David Yurman, Estee Lauder Companies, Etsy, Bayada Healthcare.

I was qualified and trained as an Engineer; completed a certification in engineering material assurance, continued further education and completed a post graduate diploma in Marketing and plus a string of other certifications thereafter. Interestingly, life gave me opportunities to work in diverse fields from engineering to sales and marketing; then stepped foot into the insurance and banking industry. In the mix of it, I ventured to becoming an entrepreneur and operated 2 retail businesses. It is as if my diversification is still too narrow, I landed myself a position in the education industry.
Some may say "rolling stone gathers no moss"; yet the moves was mostly by invitation because someone recognized the value I can bring to their organisation, mostly to raise team productivity and efficiency and develop the individual members in the teams. My effective zone is in harnessing the efficiency and effectiveness of individuals and processes. The outcome of identifying, understanding and empowering personal core effective zones fuels the individual to gain greater confidence in themselves. The collaborative sum of these individuals establishes a highly effective team.
"I gathered no moss" in the sense that I stayed sharp and relevant with what I do best and not remained stagnant climbing "the ladder" for the sake of the climb. With the more than 30 years of work experiences and having successfully navigated through each of the work fields, I concluded that my core passion is with human capital. Regardless which organisation I worked in, the prime motivation and my prize is to bring out the best in each of the individuals and teams, and to see the individual flourish!
YOU have that latent potential inside that may be waiting to flourish, waiting to break forth so you can become the authentic you. When your inner- life is balanced and enriched, the rest of life's elements will align towards completeness. Life is a journey; and it's never too late to jump on board to discover and re-orientate towards life's PURPOSEFUL EFFECTIVENESS.
