Who are we?

Hello! I am Mike Sipple, Jr. I created the Talent Magnet Institute because I am passionate about helping leaders elevate their impact in their organizations by enhancing their organization’s biggest asset, its people.

Over the years in business, we have met incredible coaches, consultants, strategic advisors, facilitators and thought-leaders in talent people leadership. We had a desire to bring these people together to create the Talent Magnet Institute.
