What My Clients Are Saying


Several years ago, John hosted me as a speaker at AARP's HQ in Washington, DC. Since then, I've been grateful to have the opportunity to stay in touch with him and get to know more about his thoughtful approach to the world of coaching and his deep concern for his clients.

John Sigmon is simply put a Master Coach. If you truly want to transform your Self for the better, personally and professionally; work with John! My coaching sessions with John charged my batteries [I literally felt a shot of positive adrenaline kick-in during the sessions], and the sessions [including the accountability work that occurred in-between] forced me to set aside time for my own personal development. I had the luxury of partnering with John on an executive coaching engagement that spanned the Pre-Covid era and into the brave new world impacted by the pandemic. As we have all experienced, this has resulted in a tectonic shift away from office work to managing a fully disparate workforce. John skillfully led me through this change; providing me the tools to adapt and build a consistent weekly structure that facilitates Clarity, Communication, Connection, Culture, Collaboration, Community, and Consistency. In addition, John’s coaching helped open my eyes to the Power of Positive Intelligence [PQ] - getting the mind to work for me, and minimize its efforts to sabotage success. In essence, the shift from the Saboteur mindset to one of PQ is similar to the act of turning the lights on within us. For years, I’ve utilized Saboteurs as a means to achieve success, but at what cost to my energy and happiness? Think of managing Saboteurs and Strengthening the Sage [PQ] like trying to master a golf swing. It is a lifelong practice with an evasive end-point. It takes constant awareness, work, and determination. And, it is a battle that everyone is experiencing, but they just aren’t tuned into the channel. One of the old favorites I’ve heard a lot of people struggle with, and I certainly have; is ‘fear of failure,’ well, that is simply a Saboteur mindset. John has taught me to take action with a positive purpose [using Curiosity, Compassion, Creativity, Joy, Peace, and Grounded Decisiveness]; instead of procrastinating, and stressing. John – thank YOU for helping me shift my leadership style, so that I may coach my team to their full potential for success and happiness!

John has helped guide me through the process of learning the culture of a new team in a new organization. He expertly switches between asking insightful questions and offering advice that gets to the heart of the matter at hand. He has made himself available at short notice over email or video to discuss issues that have come up. I wholeheartedly recommend John’s coaching and look forward to continuing to benefit from his expertise.
