- Listen as author Beckie Jorgensen talks about how to discover and celebrate who you are, and encourages you to never give away your dreams and your hope.
On a recent Called to Coach, we spoke to Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach Beckie Jorgensen.
About 15 years ago, Beckie left the corporate HR world and opened her own consulting business. As a first-time business owner, Beckie reached out to a coach to guide her through this professional transition. This coach had Beckie take the CliftonStrengths assessment. Beckie was shocked that she had not encountered this assessment during her long career in HR. After taking CliftonStrengths, Beckie went into what she described as "Learner mode" (her #6 talent theme) and read books, watched webcasts and completed any strengths activities she could find. Beckie quickly incorporated strengths into her consulting business and in the spring of 2015, she became a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach.
Recently, Beckie wrote and published Live Your L.I.F.E., a book about individuals discovering and celebrating who they are. The subtitle for the book is, "Learn how to strengthen your talents, to Intentionally find Fulfillment within, and Execute a plan to achieve happiness and success." Beckie explained, "This book teaches people never to give away their dreams and their hope. It teaches them not to feel stuck in their personal or professional lives." Beckie said her job is to empower people to take action and to motivate them to change their lives for the better.
