About Michael Sgro Leadership Training:

Our mission is to coach extraordinary leaders and to develop empathy as core competency. We work with business owners, nonprofit organizations, professionals, universities and community members who are facing challenges in their personal and professional effectiveness or want to reach their full capacity as a leader.​ ► Coaching filters out the static so you can focus on the key issues to unlock your full potential; ► Coaching provides the support and accountability needed to gain clarity of what the most important issues are; ► Coaching finds the strategic approach that will address and ultimately achieve the desired outcome; ► Coaching gets specific with step-by-step action plans to keep you moving forward. Businesses and individuals who pursue coaching are not bad people or even remedial in their work but good leaders who want to be great. I believe that positivity, creativity, and self-awareness are necessary for exceptional leaders to thrive in the workplace and in their community. Using our unique empathic leadership model for coaching, we will identify the unconscious incompetence that has had an impact on your cogency and create a plan to achieve your goals through accountability and support. The coaching relationship is not a quick fix or a magic wand solution. Long-term success requires long-term commitment. Therefore, it is recommended that a minimum of a one-year commitment to achieve the desired results. First, we assess your human behavior and then look at the intersection of your emotional intelligence (human condition). This approach establishes our coaching goals and leads to a 90-day action plan, to create the effectiveness & mastery to close the gap on any blind-spots identified in our process.
