What is Empathic Leadership?

A way of leading yourself and others through understanding and noticing feelings and perspectives.


What skills or competencies did you enhance through the coaching process?

Direct conversations, setting boundaries/expectations, community presence, and many more!


Share an example of a goal that you have realized as a result of coaching.

Personally, I have a very difficult time with saying "no" to others as I am internally wired to do more for others to feel good myself. Through the coaching process, I now have the ability and strength to set expectations which makes it much easier to say no when I'm unable or unavailable. It allows me to be the best version of myself and give the best quality to others.


What do professionals need to start anticipating as the change needed to be a strong leader?

Practicing the skill of vulnerability to be courageous in all areas of our lives!


Describe Michael Sgro as a professional coach.

Michael injects inspiration and motivation for the passion we all internally have to grow, but helps to uncover it and allow us to reach the next level. He emulates the true characteristics and actions of a mentor, leader and dear friend. I'll be forever grateful for his impact on my growth and development.
