What You Can Expect

What You Can Expect

The stake for Sigmon Leadership Solutions is that connection is the key to a better world. Connection begins with connection to self. A firm grounding in self orientation establishes a baseline for exceptional leadership.

My coaching is intensive, and my style has been described as “…warm, but direct.” Leadership is within all of us. I define leaders as those who want to impact their world. My clients include Fortune 500 C- Suite executives, Mid-level managers, Community Leaders, and individuals.

I also provide a variety of expertly facilitated workshops designed to provide thought leadership and experiential learning for participants.

I am a visionary strategist with nearly 25 years of executive and business innovation successes across for profit, not for profit, and public sector organizations. 

If your desire is to be a more impactful leader you are in the right place.

"John Sigmon is an incredibly talented executive, thought leader, and coach who passionately helps organizations and individuals achieve positive change for themselves and those they serve... my personal leadership coach, I was blown away by John’s caring and skillful approach to guiding me towards a plan of action that will allow me to leverage my strengths and passions to further grow and develop as a leader in my field. His strong listening skills, intuition, and sense of curiosity helped me achieve clarity and conviction around my direction going forward that I could not have attained if not for his dedication and commitment to excellence.

Whether as a human resources leader or as a personal coach, it is truly my pleasure to provide John Sigmon my strongest possible recommendation!"
