Extraordinary People Inc. in Plymouth

Extraordinary People Inc. reveals their clients’ ideal careers by uncovering what makes them extraordinary.

While helping their four daughters choose the right colleges, John and Darsi Beasley identified a problem. “It’s hard to know what you want to do,” explains Darsi Beasley, “and colleges are so expensive that there isn’t much room for error” when choosing a major. To solve this problem, the Beasleys teamed with Profiles International and used Profiles’ assessment tools to use in their new company: Extraordinary People Inc.

The assessments are designed to identify a client’s behavior traits. After the assessment, each client has an hour and a half debriefing with the Beasleys, both of whom are licensed life coaches, to discuss what they’ve learned. “We walk them through their thinking style, their personality, their interests and what makes them well-suited to a particular career,” Darsi Beasley says. “We want to help [our clients] understand themselves better.”

Karen Berg-Johnson, whose daughters Christina, 20, and Caroline, 17, participated in the assessments came away impressed as well: “They found the entire process to be a highly positive and affirming experience,” she says.

Extraordinary People’s assessments aren’t just for students. “We offer a range of assessments for all types,” Beasley says. “We’ve had veterans, people in transition or just professionals who wanted to learn about themselves.” For Beasley, the best part of Extraordinary People is seeing people understand themselves. 763.360.6300.
