As a Gallup-Certified® Strengths coach using the Clifton StrengthsFinder 2.0® assessment, I have coached thousands of people in using a Strengths-based approach to help enable effectiveness, increase productivity, and find their happy. I am a teacher at heart, and have spent the past 25 years educating, managing, and leading people of all ages to improve their performance through innovative professional development and strategic talent solutions. Raised in Boise Idaho, I dream of one day living in Ireland. I love to travel, outdoor adventures, live music, my three daughters, and helping others find their power within.
I recognize, appreciate, and share with listeners, that leadership is a moment-to-moment choice and not about title, tenure or position. Leadership is for everyone, every day. It's how we should live our life and I wholeheartedly believe in the phrase "Lead by example." I am passionate about inspiring people to lead at every level. I consider myself a builder of happiness in the workplace and have an unwavering belief that it is possible for everyone to love what they do. Business begins and ends with people. This truth allows me to make shifts in culture that positively affect not only the business itself, but the greater community. When teams are able to communicate with authenticity and trust, high performance is a by product. Finding what individuals are the best at and creating teams that leverage those strengths on a daily basis is what I do best. Cultivating internal leaders, partnership alignments, professional wellness, performance coaching, succession planning, and ultimately creating cultures where employees thrive is my ultimate goal.
My ability to provide coaching and strategic solutions in the areas of Strengths-based performance, leadership development, and organizational effectiveness. I have had the honor to work with such clients as: Skanska, Micron, Hewlett Packard, The Gap, Sensus Engineering, ESI Construction, ZGA Architecture, Downey Unified School District, Pomona Unified School District, Anthropologie, multiple Boards of Directors, private schools, various state departments and a variety of businesses ranging from the sole proprietor, non-profit organizations, start-ups, to fortune 500 businesses.
Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach with over 17 years’ experience using StrengthsFinder in the workplace. CEO of Every Strength Counts providing 1-1 coaching with C level execs and managers.

I help you find yourself so you can soar. I do this through coaching, speaking, and writing using the tools of CliftonStrengths and the Enneagram. I hold professional coach certifications from the ICF and Gallup. In addition, I'm the Chief People Officer for EnergyCAP, Inc. and a top-rated learning partner for Penn State. I lead people and organizations toward self-awareness, team building, and employee engagement. My writing has been featured as "Best of the Week" by "Human Resources Today" and I've been a speaker at the CliftonStrengths Summit.
What I do:
Are you a successful business leader, entrepreneur or expert who speaks at industry conferences and corporate events? I’ll help you develop strategic positioning, refine your content, and amplify thought your leadership.
Are you a pro athlete, influencer, actor, producer or director who speaks as a brand ambassador, for charity and nonprofits, or at major events? I’ll help you create powerful keynotes and prepare you for speaker panels.
Signature Keynote Accelerator:
This is designed for true experts who do speaking for major impact, visibility and long-term business development. We also work with professionals at a “Pivot Point”in their careers— after a proven track record of success in one industry, you’re shifting gears and pursuing another area of work.

My secret sauce? Yep. I have one...
1- My team strengths and expertise in different areas.
2- My leadership training and employee development programs consider the symbiotic nature of the mind-body connection and its impact on performance, leadership, and decision making. Because of this, I can guarantee that transformation in relationships, results, and revenue will happen.
3- I have learned how to access my "inner-tools." As a Mindfulness practitioner and my own personal journey to enhance my health, energy, and performance, I understand how to "hack" our biology and psychology to meet the challenge of living a "productive" life, fight back the effects of stress, and self-lead to become an effective leader. I bring those tools to a robust and whole-self training program that will shift a person and a workplace environment.
All training, coaching, and retreats for Strengthen-TheTeam™ | StrengthenHER™ | Strengthen-TheLEADERSHIP™ | Strengthen-TheSalesTeams™ and LeadershipBIOHACKING™ integrate evidence-based strengths psychology, emotional intelligence, health and wellbeing principles, alongside the neuroscience of multiple brain integration, and mindfulness.
My business mission statement:
To provide our corporate and individual clients with an innovative, science-backed and applicable strengths-based development program improving ROI, relationships, and well-being to boldly influence, execute, and purposefully live.
Bottom line: I facilitate a more effective leader, interdependent collaborative team, and company-wide strengths-based culture shifts, including diversity and inclusion initiatives, that improve engagement, retention and a happier more productive workplace environment.

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.

My passion is helping to drive human performance excellence. I coach and consult leaders, teams and organizations to reach their peak and leave a legacy, with a special emphasis on women business owners and executives.

Thrive with Strengths
When not working, you can catch me THRIVING WITH STRENGTHS as I read, travel, and dream of snowy slopes where I can ski with my husband and 3 adult kids.
I'm an inspired educator and engaging leadership and personal development coach dedicated to developing individuals and teams to their fullest potential with strengths-based workshops including "Developing Your Strengths," "Creating a Collaborative Strengths-Based Team," and "Strengths-Based Leadership."
At every interaction, I aim to blend productivity and progress with an authentic and warm spirit that helps spark the inherent strengths in each individual, always championing and celebrating the potential in others. Whether your need is individual coaching or strengths-based workshops, I am dedicated to developing and delivering transformational educational solutions.
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 am passionate about the power of positive psychology and believe in the inherent goodness of people. I've seen first-hand what a difference it makes when we focus on what is right with people rather than what is wrong with people. The inspiring possibilities of human potential drives me and I love helping others tap into their unique excellence.
I was introduced to CliftonStrengths in 2016 when I completed Gallup's online assessment and attended a workshop for ministry leaders at my church. Needless to say, I was instantly hooked!
Seeing the potential for personal growth and team empowerment, I introduced CliftonStrengths to my workplace. I guided more than forty people through a series of workshops and personal coaching sessions with incredible results! We saw improved teamwork and collaboration through a greater appreciation of one another. This resulted in more productivity, less “workplace drama,” and a noticeable increase in personal satisfaction as people came to realize the unique value they brought to the table.
My wife and I now co-facilitate workshops for the Strengths Ministry in our church. We consider ourselves a strengths-based parish with more than a hundred and twenty-five people taking part in the assessment and workshops.
It would be an honour and a pleasure to work with you, too.
