Who are we?

Hello! I am Mike Sipple, Jr., Co-Founder and CEO of the Talent Magnet InstituteTM.  My dad, Mike Sipple Sr., and I, laid the foundation for the Talent Magnet Institute in 2000.  We continued to build on that foundation as we ran Centennial Inc., our busy executive search business.  In 2017, our clients and advisors encouraged us that the time was now to take our practices, solutions and models to leaders and customers in unique and focused ways. We made The Talent Magnet InstituteTM an official legal entity and are now bringing our proven talent solutions to leaders and their teams.  We have assembled the best organizational and leadership consultants that we have partnered with in the past or meticulously vetted.  Together, we are focused on and dedicated to helping leaders lead themselves and their teams well.

The Talent Magnet Institute’sTM mission is to develop leaders and organizations into “talent magnets.” What is a talent magnet? A talent magnet is a growth-minded leader who has a desire to be proactive in the way they attract, recruit, on-board, develop and retain their people. We partner with these leaders--who know the opportunity that exists when you create, align and engage your entire organization with a clear and focused strategic plan. These leaders understand that corporate purpose, mission, core values and strategy are amplified when employees believe in the organization.

Aligning your people and organization has never been more important. Let us come alongside of you and your organization with our proprietary Becoming A Talent MagnetTM solutions.
